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 nestling between the urban sprawl of Manchester and rural tranquillity of Cheshire.
See the 18th century house transformed to tell the story of Dunham’s Lost Years: a Victorian Tale of Love and Abandonment.
Relax in the garden and explore its historic features such as the Orangery, Pump House, Victorian Bark House and the remains of an Elizabethan Mount. Snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells provide an ever changing landscape of colours and scents. In summer, see the celebrated rose garden take centre stage.
A herd of fallow deer wander amongst the ancient trees of the deer park. The park is also home to the fully restored 400 year old working sawmill powered by a water wheel.
From 14 May 2016 visit the historic stable buildings. The buildings reveal the comings and goings of the family and their workers, the importance of horses and later the motor car.
Unique gifts, locally sourced produce and plants await you in the shop. Enjoy freshly made hot meals in the Stables Restaurant or a snack in the visitor centre café and treat yourself at the ice cream parlour.
