My girlfriend and I visited Dunham Massey last weekend as the weather was nice. We had never been before, so weren’t sure what to expect. We were happily surprised to see that not only is Dunham Massey a beautiful location, with interesting buildings and nice gardens and grounds but they also had an event on that weekend. During WW1 Dunham... More

As members of the National Trust we have visited the park at Dunham Massey before and thoroughly enjoyed it – lots of deer wandering free. On this visit we toured the house and the WW1 Hospital Exhibition – superb. It really brings home the terrible realities of that conflict. Actors were included and added much realism, without being over the... More

The reconstruction of a ward from WW1 is impressive. It was truly brought to life by the 'recordings' of the patients and the notes of words said by them which were displayed in innovative ways. The gardens are beautiful and well worth visiting at different times of the year. We visited when the daffodils were in full bloom, a glorious... More

Fascinating current exhibition from when the house was a WW1 hospital 1917-19 is well worth a visit even before the house as a whole. Wonderful gardens even in the early Spring. Good food in the restaurant. Used to good days out at National trust properties and this was well up to standard

We visited Dunham Massey on a lovely sunny Sunday in March and could not believe the number of people there. The House is very interesting as it was used as a military hospital during WW1. Some rooms are set up as the hospital ward and operating theatre etc and there were people dressed up recreating the lives of the soldiers... More

we recently visited the house, and they were presenting reenactments of what life was like during the world. It's a shame that this is only for the centenary celebrations, as it was wonderful to see how it was rather than just read about it. The guides were very friendly. The visitors centre is very spacious and modern, the food in... More

We went on mother's day to see the actors in the House recreating the WW1 era when it was used as a military hospital. This was well worth watching (despite the glares we got from one of the volunteers supervising as we were loitering). I can't understand the comments others have made; unless they were stationed there in WW1 how... More

We visited on a sunny but cold day so we focused on viewing the house and the military hospital museum. The hospital exhibition was very well done and imaginatively presented giving insights into the real people, both patients and nursing staff. It was a moving experience to be in the same room where those people had suffered and been cared... More

Lovely walk out with good cafe and facilities. Not been in the house but the gardens are worth a visit in the summer.
