Visiting Dunham Massey
It’s hard to imagine visiting the National Trust property at Dunham Massey and coming away disappointed. With it’s magnificent house and fabulous deer park, Dunham Massey really is a wonderful place. The National Trust property is located in the Borough of Trafford in Greater Manchester, fairly close to the town of Altrincham.
The property used to belong to the Earl of Stamford and has been owned by the National Trust since 1976.
The park area is pretty extensive with oak trees dating as far back as the 17th century and numerous pathways to amble along. On each and every occasion that we have visited we have seen the fallow deer. Our latest visit was no exception to this and we were able to take plenty of photographs of the deer that really do look like animals that are always calm, relaxed and quite elegant.
In addition to enjoying the walks through the woodland you are sure to spot plenty of grey squirrels and there are always ducks, moorhens and the like on the water.
Due to the Covid 19 restrictions in place at the time we visited, the hall was closed and visits were on a book in advance/timed entry basis. The current booking system allows the safe and effective management of social distancing.
It’s a magnificent place to visit and it’s one we have been to a few times and that we are sure to return to many more times.
