Dunham Massey Houses
3m SW of Altrincham (A56)
Country estate including mansion with important collections and 'below stairs' areas, impressive garden and deer park.
An early Georgian house built around a Tudor core, Dunham Massey was extensively reworked in the early years of the 20th century. The result is one of Britain's most sumptuous Edwardian interiors, housing exceptional collections of 18th-century walnut furniture, paintings and Huguenot silver, as well as extensive servants' quarters. Here is one of the North West's great plantsman's gardens with richly planted borders and majestic trees, as well as an orangery, Victorian bark-house and well-house.
The ancient deer park contains a series of beautiful avenues and ponds and a Tudor mill, originally used for grinding corn but refitted as a sawmill c. 1860 and now restored to working order.
House & garden: £6. 50, child £3. 25, family £16. 25. Groups £5. House or garden only: £4. 50, child £2. 25. Reduced rate when arriving by public transport.
