Things to do at Dyrham Park review
Dyrham Park is a baroque country house set with an ancient deer park in Dyrham, Gloucestershire. It is maintained by the National Trust and is located near Bath. The house was built during the 17th and 18th centuries and is Grade 1 listed.
There are acres of ancient parkland, formal gardens and woodland terraces waiting to be discovered. The National Trust has downloadable walking trails on their website. The Journey of Discovery Trail is great for families and is an easy 40-minute walk with carved wooden animals to spot along the way.
In the house, every room has been recreated to show what it would have looked like a few hundred years ago. The kitchen is particularly realistic and it is a great learning experience for kids. The house is being transformed after a major conservation project to replace the leaking roof.
There is an Old Lodge natural play area for kids to play on with plenty of wood and an old tractor. You can pick up tracker packs with plenty of activities to do around the gardens. Hopefully, you will spot their 200-strong herd of fallow deer that roam the estate. They often host family-friendly events including children’s trails and outdoor theatre.
