The Great Summer Escape

Run as fast as a hare, jump far like a squirrel and use your beady owl eyes to spot woodland animals in the gardens at Dunham Massey this summer. Treat yourself to an ice cream in the park and make your staycation one to remember. Don't forget to not apporach or feed the deer to keep them healthy.
