I was lucky enough to visit Dunham Massey house for the first time when the 1st world war hospital was in operation. As a nurse I was greatly shocked by the suffering of the soldiers but astonished that, without antibiotics and many other drugs the staff there were able to nurse all but one casualty in their care so well...

Impressive grounds and garden (didn't bother with the house). Lots of deer in the park who seem quite friendly and are happy enough to come up to the house. Lots of ducks around too. This is a National Trust property so car parking is free for members but this would be an expensive day out for non-members as car parking... More

Stunning scenery in the garden for our picnic and exploring the ww1 hospital was great. The exhibition uses lots of senses and is great at transporting you back in time.

We visited on the last Sunday before the schools went back and the place was very busy but because entrance to the house was timed it didn't seem so inside. We were particularly interested in seeing the re creation of the convalescence ward, it was very well done and very moving. It has been so popular that the National Trust... More

Went to see the WW1 Hospital and found the exhibition informative and thought provoking especially when the actors brought scenes to life. The house is lovely and very well laid out. You do need plenty of time to get round the house and gardens. We weren,t very impressed with the food on offer or the prices in the cafe though.

I am not a big lover of Statley Homes etc but as I am a Trust Volunteer I get in FOC, I thought the way the WW1 Hospital had been recreated was VG, the guides as ion all properties very helpful, and the food excellent, nice way to spend an afternoon on the way to Manchester
