Dunham Massey house and garden
© National Trust / Dave Jones
- Set within a wall of warm red brick Dunham Massey is home to over 400 years' worth of family history, a herd of fallow deer and a pleasure-seekers garden. 'Dunham's Lost Years' has seen the house transformed to tell a tale of love, status and scandal which changed Dunham's history forever. Outdoors, a homely garden awaits with colourful swathes of planting and a sweeping lawn at its centre – a great spot for a picnic. The stables and working mill are also close by, but for those who want to escape deeper into park, take one of the tree-lined avenues spotting deer along the way.
