As members of the NT we try to visit any place we can when on holiday. We were on the canal and this place was within an easy walk. What a fascinating day - we enjoyed looking around the gardens and the mill as well as seeing the deer in the park and we found the house most interesting. We... More

visited to see the bluebells in the garden. We were not disappointed. The gardens were stunning. We then visited the beautiful old mill and had a wander round the deer park. This is the BEST place to see wild deer. they are so tame and wander freely and as the house and gardens had closed before we left the deer... More

Well done National Trust on bringing the essence of the Stamford Military Hospital back to life at Dunham Massey. The use of live actors really added to the atmosphere and gave a much greater indication as to what the house would have been like 100 years ago. I found myself compelled to read the information on each of the beds... More

The team at Dunham Massey must be congratulated for the way in which they have re-created the WW1 Stamford Military Hospital. The whole exhibition is moving and shows how the wounded soldiers that were taken there were treated. It is enhanced by the use of professional actors recreating scenes from life at the hospital. Sadly it also shows the futility... More

Dunham Hall has been converted into its WW1 guise of the Stamford Military Hospital, set up to treat injured soldiers repatriated from the front line. Fabulous presentation , moving experience.

Went to Dunham Massey for the first time in ages and boy has it had a makeover at the front entrance with a lovely Reception, Shop and Cafe. The park is great for walking round too. Lovely Deer. I have been round the House and Formal Gardens in the past and would recommend them. Be warned: no dogs off lead... More

We didn't really know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. The massive plus point is that there are proper paths or trails to walk which last for miles all within beautiful grounds. My 9 month old baby was thoroughly entertained for hours; looking at the tame deer, lakes, fountains and general greenery. Picturesque and clean throughout. We had visited... More
