About Dunham Massey

Nestled between the vibrant city of Manchester and the beginnings of rural Cheshire, Dunham Massey includes a 300-acre deer park, a historic house and buildings, and all-season gardens.

Outdoors, accessible paths pass roaming fallow deer and ancient trees in the parkland, while the Winter and Rose Gardens reveal the sights and scents of the seasons. Across the moat, the Georgian house offers a backdrop to the formal gardens making a picturesque spot for picnickers.

Indoors, ornate rooms and servant’s quarters hold a collection that spans the history of the house, while the water-powered mill and other historic buildings add further context that beckons you into the past.

Trails, events and seasonal happenings are frequent, as is the tendency to return to this much-loved place.
