A Baroque mansion set in a sprawling estate, Dyrham Park holds 300 years of the aristocratic life of the Blathwayt family. The estate sprawls for 110 hectares (270 acres), so take long walks along the footpaths, or ask for a guide if you want someone to show you around. Look for the herd of fallow deer foraging in the old trees. Visit the gardens, replanted every season, which always have something thriving. Inside the manor, look for fine collections of Delft ceramics and Dutch art. Check out the Victorian kitchen under the stairs to see how the servants of the family worked and lived.

Great place to look around and the kids to let off some steam. Nice gardens to walk around and plenty of other areas to walk
The grounds and park are great and being able to see deer is lovely. They run a shuttle bus from the car park to the house. Otherwise it's a 20 min walk there and back. The downside is they only have the ground floor open while the roof was being fixed.
Lovely grounds with deer that you might be lucky enough to see. Beautiful gardens and a great team room. Would have been 5 stars but the house is still being worked on so only a few rooms open. In the rooms open some of the art work is fantastic .
Beautiful grounds and a great house, currently under a bit of renovation. Guides were very informative. There is a bus shuttle to and from the house to the car park. Cafe was good value.
The house is very nice from the outside, but disappointing inside. Not much to see and very few rooms are open to the public. The grounds are really nice and well kept, and numerous Deer roam free so pack a camera for some rare wildlife shots.
A really nice place to visit. There is a bus down to the house for the less abled, which I found handy as the walk is too far for me.
