Superb day out, really interesting to learn more about the history of the house and its time as a military hospital during WW1. Lovely grounds & gardens, excellent visitor centre and great facilities. Plenty here to keep the little ones occupied.

The house and gardens are a must to see.The deer park is a great walk with dogs on leads and children on bikes and scooters. Great for a picnic as lotes of space to play. The surrounding area is lovely to have a walk with pubs and tea shops in the village.

Transforming parts of the house back to its days as Stamford Hospital during the First World War is clearly very popular judging by the crowds on the sweltering July day when we visited. The downside to that is of course that the house was very busy and it was particularly difficult to see many of the exhibits and to read... More

Wonderful old stately home run as a hospital in war, fascinating, there is an exhibition on for 2 years well worth a visit. Setting is so lovely with little deer everywhere just grazing a few feet away. Please go see for yourselves.

Dunham Massey hall has been taken back in time to when it was a first world war hospital using sound effects and actors absolutely brilliant . The hall and grounds are still available for viewing could not believe how close the deer herd was to visitors. Food was excellent glad we only had small portions .
