Lovely place to wash away the stresses of the week. Take a picnic as cafe is expensive and car parking gone up a whole pound!!! Maybe pricing itself out now for families looking for a nice Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

Have previously been here when a NT member, I was surprised at the rediculous parking charge of £6.00. I guess the NT want to convince you to become a member. They have built a new entrance building very modern and the use of wood a nice touch (guess this is what car parking paid for!) It was an extremely busy... More

We called here on our way home from. Weekend on the Wirral. The house had been made into a replica of the hospital it was during the first world war. With 'live' actors, it added to the experience of what otherwise would have been just another stately home tour. The gardens were a delight. A really nice wander around. Pity... More

Been promising ourselves to go to see the recreation of the first world war hospital, Dunham is a great family day out on its own but this really is worth seeing. It brings home some of the horrors of war and the effort and dedication of the people bringing recuperation and hope back to the victims. It's a one off... More

I used to cycle here and spend time cycling around the park before buying lunch from the shop. It was a lovely afternoon's outing from Salford. We went last week and saw signs saying that only careful cyclists under five were welcome. How disappointing.

As a previous National trust member we have enjoyed visiting numerous NT site in the South-east and with a trip to Manchester for a wedding this allowed us an opportunity to visit somewhere new. our membership lapsed in the summer and so as a non-member i was shocked at the £6 parking charge (sites in the SE charge £3 which...

Open daily for gardens but Sun-Wed for house. Gardens not at their best time of year understandably so but still plenty to see. A guide leaflet explains the areas. Pleasant staff.

We just popped in en route to Chester. I had no idea how impressive this would be. Huge beautiful house in magnificent grounds with graceful deer amongst the trees. The house was used as a hospital in WW1 and one of the rooms was set up as a ward. Actors mingled with visitors and played the part of nurse and... More

It is very interesting to visit National Trust at Dunham Massey where they have recreated the hospital for injured First War soldiers that used to be in the House. It gives a good picture of what life was like in those days a century ago to be a soldier in the 1914-18 war and being a patient at the hospital.... More
