In bringing back the 'beds' to Dunham Massey the National Trust have very cleverly recreated The Stamford Hospital. The 'ward' provides a very moving reminder of the plight of many 1st World War military personnel and the amazing dedication of those who cared for them during their recovery and for some as they died. The displays in the rest of... More

Having joined the national trust a while back we pop over regularly. The house and formal gardens are stunning and always worth a wander round. The deer park is equally lovely and seems to have more deer than ever this year! It's a lovely place to spend a day, whether exploring the house and looking at the WW1 exhibition that... More

Worth visiting while the Stamford hospital is displayed. Very interesting and thoroughly enjoyed watching the actors put on short performances so professionally. Need to return as did not get chance to look around all the grounds. Very well maintained thanks to National Trust.

The addition of Stamford Hospital at Dunham Massey during 1914-1918 centenary is a great idea. We visited on a Saturday and it was extremely busy, perhaps timed entry tickets every 15 minutes rather than 10 would make it a little less congested. When we revisit we will go on a weekday after the Stamford Hospital exhibition is finished in order... More

Dunham Massie Hall and Gardens is an amazing place for a day trip from Manchester! Its in Altringham and sign posted. The National Trust is doing a great job in maintaining the former home of the 10th Earl of Warrington and its magnificent gardens where families can enjoy a picnic on the manicured lawn. There are also tame Fallow Deer... More

We had a lovely afternoon out here. We had bought tickets for an outdoor production of Pirates of Penzance so decided to turn up early and visit the attractions as well. The first thing we saw was the sawmill where we were given an interesting short talk about how it worked and learnt where the phrases top dog and under... More

Soldiers were taken here as it was used as a hospital so they have set up a "ward" with actors so you can see how it was.

We are keen NT members although this was our first visit to Dunham Massey. There is a lot to like about Dunham Massey, from the minute you pick up the brown road signs providing directions Dunham Massey(village) Quaint and with a lovely ambience. Houses in the style of brickwork similar to the main attraction, and hanging baskets a plenty. Dunham... More
