Sanctuary from the Trenches

During the First World War, this Georgian house, set in a magnificent deer-park, was transformed into a military hospital, becoming a sanctuary from the trenches for almost 300 soldiers.

To mark the centenary we have turned the clock back. Discover what life was like for the patients and how members of the Stamford family helped injured soldiers to recuperate.  Spend time in the ward, nurses’ station, and operating theatre as you experience the Stamford Hospital as it once was.

Dunham Massey has one of the North’s great gardens, with plenty to inspire throughout the year, including a stunning rose garden and one of Britain’s finest winter gardens.

This season is the final chance for visitors to experience the house presented as the Stamford Hospital. Please note that we will be operating a timed token system and may have limited availability on tickets to the house and hospital during busy periods. We look forward to seeing you soon.

The Stamford Hospital is open Saturday - Wednesday until 11 November 2015  

The Hut Project

Earlier this year a group of military veterans worked alongside an art therapist to create artwork that tells the story of the Stamford Hospital and reflects their own experiences of conflict.

The result is an evocative recreation of the hut in the garden which was used to deliver the 'fresh air cure' to wounded soldiers during the First World War.

Pop in on your visit to the garden.

Treasures from the Collection

After visiting the Stamford Hospital you’ll find an exhibition showcasing the personal objects of the two earls we treasure for shaping the collection - George Booth, 2nd Earl of Warrington, and Roger Grey, 10th Earl of Stamford.

Are dogs allowed at Dunham?

Bring your dog along to the deer park, where furry friends are welcome on a lead. If you'd like to walk your dog off the lead you can head to North Park - ask for directions on arrival. Whilst dogs can't come into the formal garden, shop or restaurant, they can sit outside and enjoy the views from the cafe terrace.
