The House

The Georgian house set within a 300 acre deer park was once home to the Earls & Countesses of Stamford and Warrington. The largely Edwardian interiors are host to an extensive collection of objects; most notable are the paintings, wooden furniture and large silver collection. Home to this family for over 400 years, there are new stories to hear with every visit.

The Garden

There are 30 acres of garden featuring both historical and modern planting. Historical features including an Elizabethan mount, an eighteenth-century orangey, a bark house and a pump house. Dunham Massey is home to the largest winter garden in the UK and changes continuously throughout the year.
