What a fantastic place, you really must talk to the staff and watch the films that are available. There's a lot of things that you'll miss if your not told. Look out for the coach houses and the old church, couldn't work out where the basement was, that's because the basement isn't underground its ground floor. Will definitely visit again but on a dry day, although if its raining and not to busy they let you go on the mobility bus. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Really enjoyed our day out at Dyrham. Like others have said a long walk to the house downhill. I intended to walk both ways but on way back the bus driver stopped to ask if I wanted a lift (which I thought was very thoughtful of him)
The House is interesting and when we went some rooms had been renovated and just reopened. The Church was beautiful as were the gardens.
All the Volunteers were friendly and informative
Lovely tea room and Gift Shop.

A beautiful day out with plenty to see if you take your time to explore all the nooks and crannies of the lovely grounds.

The House is OK but nothing too special, but its the location and scenery that makes it. long walk down to the house and a lot harder walking back up so if you might struggle with that there is a shuttle bus.

Food in the Cafe is OK but a little pricey

One word of warning .The exit brings you onto the A46 a little further along from the entrace just under a rise. Traffic is doing 50/60 at this point, We were third in line witing to pull out left, but the two idiots in front of turned right and both pulled out in front of traffic nearly causing two multi car pile ups in a matter of seconds , If not for the quick thinking of a van driver who swerved off the road, there would have been a serious collison, and even then he had to brake like crazy to avoid hitting us and we wernt even at the junction. Heart stopping moment, Why the exit isn't the entrance, where the A46 is flat and clear escapes me. Convenience over safety.

Very disappointed. We did not realise how steep the walk down to the hill is - so be warned! If in doubt take the bus if it's running. There are no benches or places to stop on the way.
The house was a disappointment. We had to wait to go in, while others seemed to be having an in depth personal tour. I sure they enjoyed it, but we missed out on some of the rooms. We couldn't see the great hall because one of the volunteers was having a chat in the doorway!
Other volunteers were friendly and helpful so it's not all bad, but a warning about the hill would be good and please tell the volunteers that sharing all their knowledge of the house isn't necessary. Let everyone have a chance to look round.

Beautiful grounds to explore and a stunning house. I brought my two girls here today and we took the woodland walk to the house. It was lovely to be outside and have a scenic walk down to the house. We enjoyed sitting in the gardens with a picnic and the house as a backdrop made it even more special.

Food in the cafe excellent. The grounds and facilities good with lots for the children to do. They loved the book shop and bought three books all about steam trains.

Arrived with our well behaved dog on a lead who we always clean up after to enjoy a stroll around the grounds. Whilst still in the car park looking at the site map a member of staff informed us that dogs are not permitted in the grounds only along a designated dog walking area which is separated by a wall from a noisy, busy road that was nowhere near anything of any interest. Should have checked the dog policy before we went. It was really disappointing to not even be able to stroll around the gardens and I wasn’t going to leave an important member of our family in the car!

A review in two parts

This review is in two parts covering visits made on 21Jan22 and 16Apr22

Part 1 from 21Jan22
Title: Some unfinished business, but another visit will be needed

We had visited this National Trust property on a very sunny early January day a couple of weeks earlier, and had concentrated activities outside in the gardens and terrace areas. Today the weather was not so great: temperature-wise, it was equally cold as our previous visit, but the combination of a biting breeze that froze your jaw, plus the lack of sunshine did little to encourage us.

Our original plan had been to walk around the Discovery Trail but we were told at arrival that the grounds would be closed until mid-February to give the grass (now just mud in places) a chance to recover. So we will return later, brandishing NT Membership cards and hoping the progress on construction of the all-weather paths allows a clean, safe, and interesting, good long walk.

So today, after the moderate walk down from the carpark to the house and gardens, we did a little browsing in the NT Shop and purchased a couple of items that we found in the sale. This was followed by a really good, reasonably priced, cup of warming coffee in the tea-room. We then attended an interesting exhibition about the politician William Blathwayt who had the House built here in Dyrham.

We had planned to visit the Basement, but a pre-arranged lunch elsewhere called time on us. So it was time to climb up the hill back to the carpark and head off. Never mind, Dyrham Park is our nearest NT Property and we will return soon to take-in a bit more of the Dyrham experience. The House itself is being re-imagined and that is to be completed by April we were told; so that is another reason to visit again.

Part 2 from 16Apr22
Title: £10 million re-imagining partly revealed

Our third visit this year, but with the weather having been so dull, wet and then stormy we hadn’t visited for six weeks, and therefore not at all in March, as we had hoped. We had thought that we might be able to make several visits throughout the latter part of the winter, through spring, and the summer, and maybe autumn; to see the gradual seasonal changes in the garden and woodland flora. As our closest NT property and as we are Members the only (and minor) cost would be in travelling, and maybe light refreshments in the café.

We found that despite the less than ideal weather, the flowers have indeed blossomed, most of the Daffodils were over but Bluebells and Tulips were in full bloom, with such wonderfully bright colours.

We noted that some trees in long avenues were beginning to leaf. We observed this because we hadn’t taken the paved west avenue that leads downhill from the carpark to the house, as the grassed northwest avenue was now open. It had been rested on our previous visits to allow the grass to recover. This northwest track continues to the escarpment overlooking mostly farmland north-northwest to the M4, and across to Pucklechurch in the west, with Bristol centre being further west. It was a lovely fine day and we could plainly see Pucklechurch which is certainly 5-6 miles away. The centre of Bristol was just about visible, and we were told that it is possible to see Brunel’s Suspension Bridge at Clifton on a very fine day.

The walk was exhilarating and we made our way down footpaths to the front of the Dyrham Park House. As we approached we could see that the Orangery was open, with a short queue to venture further inside the house: so being keen to see what a £10 million re-imagining is like, we joined the queue. Inside there were a small number of rooms that are now open following the refurbishments. The Great Hall is still closed but we were able to look, from an adjacent room, at the beautifully restored panelling that has been stripped of paint. Work obviously continues but the work on the great staircase has been completed, but it remained closed when we visited.

We did visit the tea-room for a warm sausage roll and a hot drink. We then trolled out into the side and back formal gardens where the Tulips dominated the floral displays. It was quite busy (it was Easter Saturday) with many people enjoying a picnic. From there we climbed up the terraced gardens and found our way back to the escarpment, and thence back through the avenues to the carpark. If was a good walk in pleasant weather.

We visited here today, we are National Trust members so the parking was free and there was plenty of parking. It takes 40 minutes to walk to the house taking a scenic walk or 15 minutes the direct route to the house. We took the scenic route, there is a vehicle that takes people who can’t manage the walk to the house. There is a great exhibition before you visit the house, very informative and interesting. The gardens are beautiful and the house interesting. The National Trust staff were all friendly and helpful.

Easter Monday 2022 - our first National Trust visit since early 2020.

A beautiful setting and a spectacular vista as one walks down towards the house.

But, but I advise you to save your money. £2.00 to park, for two hours, and an 'entry charge' of £11 each. Lots of warden-like NT staff (no doubt volunteers) busy collecting payment and haughtily directing visitors. The parkland was scruffy and clearly lacked maintenance. This is my line of business. Lots of signs say 'this path is closed in order to rest the grass'. No doubt they've been overwhelmed with visitors throughout COVID. The 'map' was inaccurate and gave no further information about the house - no great loss having researched our visit before we went - but a lost opportunity to inform and educate.

The gardens at the back of the house were unkempt: un-mown grass, lots of dandelions and surprisingly small and disappointing.

Coffee and a bun in the garden cafe - as opposed to the courtyard - took an hour to be served: a single member of staff taking and fulfilling the orders. Anyone with any acumen would realise immediately that two people were needed to run that serving station.

So a one hour walk to the house and back to the car park, an hour to get coffee and then to a local pub for lunch, with almost immediate service. With a two hour time limit on parking we would no doubt have had a nasty 'penalty charge' through the post for overstaying - that's private parking companies I'm afraid. Meanwhile, we watched dozens of visitors in the overspill car park simply walking in without payment. Irritating.

Surely it would make sense to include parking in the entry charge? To have two people serving in the cafe? To keep the grounds up to scratch? Then it would be worth the price.

My advice: lots of lovely walks in the area, that don't cost £22.
