Dunham Massey Hall, usually known simply as Dunham Massey was during the Great War the Stamford Military Hospital, and now is a National Trust property.

The garden provides the perfect backdrop for making the most of the long summer days – relax amongst lavish greenery and bright colours and enjoy the scents of the Rose Garden in the sunshine.

The house is open to visitors Saturday - Wednesday, 11am- 5pm where you can absorb in the Victorian beauty which tells a story of love and loss.

George Harry became the seventh Earl in 1845 when he inherited Dunham Massey to become the wealthiest and most titled young man of the time, being only eighteen years old.

He then rebelled against the Victorian society to marry a skilled circus performer Catherine Cox, the word soon got out about the controversial love-match.

Rejected by society, the married couple abandoned Dunham Massey. Dunham Masseys history changed forever.

Dunham Massey also has all the elements of a great medieval deer park. Enjoy a pleasant stroll through the grounds to see fine avenues, wide vistas, ancient trees with layers of history going back a thousand years, roaming deer and open grassland.
