A great day out. The actors in the hospital wards made it so much more real. I was fascinated. The whole day was a bit expensive and I think they shouldn't have charged £6 for the car park when we were also going to have to pay over £30 between us to see the house.

Went with a six year old who loved the hospital and the deer. Plenty to keep visitors of all ages happy. The restaurant was pleasant enough and the facilities at many National Trust Properties have seemed to have undergone an upgrade recently. We will certainly be going back.

The house is set up as it was a Hospital in the war. Complete with original items along with copies you can touch and handle properly. The house also has actors playing various parts so you really get a feel of what it must have been like during the war. Very informative and the staff are helpful along with being... More

We wandered around and just watched the deer playing. Then had lunch in the cafe. You need to pay to view the Gardens and inside the house though the park and deer areas are all free to view. You're able to cycle or walk to your hearts content. Gorgeous day and fabulous park.

I visited Dunham Massey last week wth my friend. It was overall a very nice day if you visit national parks once it can seem expensive to get in however if you buy the membership it really does save you money. The actors in the house were very good and really have the place an authentic feeling of what the... More

We visited in September but found the house was closed, walked around the estate which was really lovely with Deer wandering closes by. They were totally used to people but you are discouraged from feeding them. We sat on a log and they came with us and grazed at our feet. Wonderful. We revisited on 21 June this year and... More

We visited on a lovely sunny June morning; the garden and grounds are delightful and even better with good weather. Loved the variety and scope of the planting; only slight crit: more names on more of the plants, please as I wanted to know exactly what I was seeing for future reference and possible purchase. Having said that, we thoroughly... More

A great visit to this interesting house made even more interesting by the ground floor being set up as it was as a hospital during WW2. Actors act little 'playlets' as you walk through the ground floor of the house. Upstairs and kitchen areas as normal.

We went today to visit . We had a lovely time. The hospital was really interesting and especially the actors who enacted small scenes . The display material was very good. Notes written on the linen , socks , ties and other objects. The personal touch from diaries from some of the nurses and soldiers from the war were really... More
