Dyrham was built between 1691 and 1702 for William Blathwayt, William IIIs Secretary at War and Secretary of State. The rooms have changed little since they were furnished by Blathwayt and their contents are recorded in his housekeepers inventory. There are many fine textiles and paintings, as well as items of blue-and-white delftware, reflecting the contemporary taste for Dutch fashions. Restored Victorian domestic rooms open (and for extended period, see below), including kitchen, bells passage, bakehouse, larders, tenants hall and Delft-tiled dairy.
