A garden for all seasons, an ancient deer park and a house filled with treasures and stories

What is coming up up in 2019


The places that make us

As police officers, Stuart and Rebecca know that finding quality family time with their two young boys can be hard. Working shifts or at weekends means that any time together is precious. At Dunham Massey in Cheshire, their favourite local place, they can escape hectic working lives to play with their sons and create treasured family memories.
