Our fallow deer’s noses are brownish and tiny, but Rudolph’s is red, very large and quite shiny. A herd of magical deer return to Dunham this Christmas. Can you find all eight to uncover a secret? Grab a map and explore the park and garden to find all eight of the life-size cut out creations. £2 per map. Normal admission applies.
Forget hibernating until spring, our Winter Garden is alive with colour as the carpets of snowdrops, cyclamen and blue winter irises develop over the next few weeks – it’s the perfect place for a frosty walk with friends and family. There's always something growing in the garden, so each time you visit, there's something new!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas when the trees and formal gardens of Dunham Massey are all aglow for a magical after-dark experience. In partnership with Raymond Gubbay Limited, Dunham Massey will be transformed into a winter wonderland this December– a one mile sparkling path winding through the historic woodland with plenty of surprises along the way.
What could be better on a cold winter’s day than indulging in a yummy Christmas dinner in the Stables Restaurant? Choose from a range of festive dishes including roast turkey, Dunham venison and Christmas spiced casserole or roasted root veg and goats cheese parcels. Christmas lunch will be served at various time slots between 12noon - 2pm, from 4 – 22 December, Monday – Friday. £19.95 for 2 course or £23.95 for 3 course. Pre-booking is essential.

Don’t let the cold put you off…
If you’d rather be outdoors and pull on your winter woollies, and get some colour in your cheeks with a walk around the estate – did you know that you’re less likely to argue during Christmas time if you go on a walk? So there’s no excuses!
