A garden for all seasons, an ancient deer park and a house filled with treasures and stories.

Encircled by its protective wall, Dunham Massey is a green oasis nestled between the urban sprawl of Manchester and rural tranquillity of Cheshire.

The park and garden are the ideal place to enjoy the ever-changing landscape, while you can discover hundreds of years of history inside the house and servants' courtyard.

A ramble around the park will reveal a range of architectural oddities and views of the house complete with Dunham’s resident herd of fallow deer. You may also glimpse other wildlife including owls and woodpeckers. Enjoy a guided walk of the deer park, or take the chance to wrap up warm and wander freely amongst groves of ancient trees.

Dunham is also home to one of Britain’s finest winter gardens, with plenty of scent and colour to delight the senses throughout the year. Unwind on one of the accessible circular walks before warming up with a hearty homemade meal at the Stables Restaurant.

With special events all year round, there’s plenty to brighten your day at Dunham.

      We met friends for what I was told would be a great walk round the grounds. Imagine how sad I felt when all I got was a walk round a small field. I wouldn’t chase any animals (unless they were cats... Read full review
