  • Love taking the family here for some good outdoor times. National trust, cafe and restaurant are good but busy so plan the time right. Gardens are good at all seasons (plus feed the chickens which the kids love.) Deer garden gives a good walk and the house is good to look around. Highly recommended in autumn for excellent fun in the leaves.
  • Lovely National Trust hall and gardens. Good footpaths through woodland with lakes, bird life and friendly deer. Good cafes. Great for all ages. Garden was planted with winter and spring flowering bulbs 2 years ago. Lovely!
  • Great scones in the cafe! Not the largest grounds, but attractive and easy to walk around - you'll always spot a few deer on your wanderings! The exhibitions in the house are always worth visiting too.
  • Dunham Massey is one of my favourite National Trust estates. It has beautiful gardens and extensive woodlands with deers, ponds and trails for visitors to enjoy. Entrance to the stately home is a must for all those visiting Dunham. It also contains a cafe, restaurant, shop and an ice cream parlour for visitors to enjoy. A worthwhile day out for all to enjoy.
  • Fantastic grounds. Lots for the family to do. We only spent a couple of hours but could have easily spent the whole day it is so big. Activities during half term, kids went on a welly hunt in the gardens.
