Dunham Massey – National Trust

A bit of a picture post for you today!

A few weeks ago I headed over to Dunham Massey near Cheshire with my grandparents for a day out. So I headed out into the rain armed with my camera ready for lots of picture taking opportunities. It was such a lovely day, even though it was a bit grey and miserable.

You may recognise a few of these from previous posts, they’re too pretty not too!

It’s an absolutely gorgeous place, huge too. It was used as a hospital during the First World War, and the house at the moment (it was closed the day we went) is all set up as it would have been then. There’s also lots of memorials to the soldiers dotted around the gardens which were really interesting.

There are so many different gardens for you to explore (my fav being the rose garden, porbably two thirds of these pictures of of it). They’re all stunning, you can tell the gardeners work their little socks off taking care of them all.

There’s also a deer dark that is free to go into – perfect if you live locally to go walking through. We did spot the deer but they were really far off so unfortunately couldn’t get any pics, my camera lens isn’t that good!

National Trust have some fantastic sites you can visit, I only wish it was cheaper. The prices are pretty steep, especially if you’re a student, which I think is a shame because they’d get so many more visitors each year if they did a discounted rate for under 25s. Oh well. Maybe when I somehow get rich I’ll be able to go to each site.

This is one of the memorials, each block symbolises one soldier who stayed as a patient during the war.

If you ever get the chance to go, definitely do! Plus, the converted barn cafe is super Instagram-able.

Have you ever been to any National Trust sites? What did you think of them?
