Dyrham Park

  1. School half term and what a wash-out! Today was one of the better days, at least it stayed dry.
  2. Visit with DD and the grandchildren to Dyrham Park, National trust property just few miles north of Bath.
  3. Quote from NT Handbook: "There are more than 110 hectares (270 acres) of ancient parkland, where historic herd of 200 fallow deer roam freely and magnificent trees and breathtaking views abound."

The house dates to late 17th century, but we did not visit there today. 

We just enjoyed a walk in the grounds,

a picnic at the end,

and a visit to the lovely National Trust shop to buy some plants.

 Oh, and our lovely heron has a new friend, a birthday present from my children.

In case you are wondering, these metal sculptures came from a National Trust shop.
You can also buy them from their on-line shop.

Have a lovely weekend!

Thanks for showing these photos. We joined the National Trust when we were there last year and I loved going through the different gardens. Your grandchildren would have had a lovely day-- precious memories for them having outings with their grandparents too.

lovely grounds but I was surprised they built the wonderful home so near and into a hill or is it very hilly there. The herons look great together, wonder if they will atract any real ones to visit your garden

Anglické parky a zahrady, to je prostě pojem. Nikdy na těch pár, co jsem navštívila, nezapomenu. Moc děkuji, že si mi ukázala další Radko!
Hezkou sobotu, pa Helena

Lovely reminder of Dyrham. I played my flute there in the great hall with friends about 5 years ago on a Saturday. A lovely day. x
