About Us

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.

      I visited mid-week. The amount of rooms open was dismal. Given that we've lived with Covid for over a year now, I think it is unreasonable to use this as an excuse to charge customers to only be... Read full review
