Newest Review: ... possessions over the years to pay for the upkeep of the property, or as it went out of fashion. One nice aspect was that, where possible, you were given greater freedom to wander around the rooms, not just stare at things from behind a roped-off area. Where conservation issues allowed, rooms were just open and, as long as you didn't touch, you could go where you wished. Despite all of this, ... more

Dunham Massey is an extensive Georgian property sitting between Warrington and Manchester. It was home to one of the most influential families in the area and (at times) the kingdom before it was handed to the National Trust in 1976. Getting there ------------------- Dunham Massey is fairly easy to find. The simplest way is to take the A56 towards Altrincham. It's also pretty accessible from the M6 or the M56 and once you get close, it's well-signed with lots of the usual National Trust brown signs, making it hard to miss. A Brief History Lesson ------------------------------- Dunham Massey is the ancestral home of the Earls of ... Read the complete review

Dunham Massey is run by the national trust. Standard admission for an adult is £9.90 for the house and garden if you're not a national trust member. I would recommend national trust membership as it gives you access to over 300 properties plus those in Scotland and some other countires. Dunham is a large Georgian mansion set within impressive grounds and gardens. It also has a deer park and you get much closer to the deer at Dunham Massey than you do at Tatton Park for example. There are signs telling you not to approach them but this weekend there were children feeding them leaves! It is a great place for the whole family. For the children there's the ...

My family and I are proud members of the National Trust and have visited many of the places that the National Trust have to offer, such as Lyme Hall in Cheshire, Beatrix Potters house in Sowry, Sizergh castle near Kendal and Dunahm Massey hall in Cheshire, and it is Dunham Massey Hall, which is situated in the small parish called Dunham Massey, Trafford., together with the deer park, that I am going to tell you about today. * Firstly, a bit about the hall... The Georgian Hall and dear park are situated in 300 acres of land, it was initially built in 1616 by Sir George Booth and has had several 'face lifts' since then with the most recent one being in ...

Following a recent trip to Chester we decide to stop off at Dunham Massey on the way home. As we are members of the National Trust we often try to break up our journeys on holiday with a National Trust visit as these are much more pleasant to stop in than motorway cafes. Whilst I believe the property has a Mill we didn't visit this area so is not included in this review. Getting there *************** The property is 3 miles south-west of Altrincham off A56. Our route finder map took us straight there with no problems. When you enter the park you drive up and pass an entrance gate/ kiosk where you have to pay your parking fee so make sure you ...
