A NATIONAL Trust site in Trafford has been named as one of the most 'Instagrammable' in the country.

This means that social-media lovers and those hoping for a stunning snap should be sure to visit the site in the near future.

According to research from myjobquote.co.uk, Dunham Massey in Altrincham is the second most Instagrammable National Trust site in the UK.

One other northern National Trust site made the top 20 list and that was Fountains Abbey in Ripon, North Yorkshire.

It’s no wonder that Dunham Massey came in at second in the rankings.

Dunham Massey is a beautiful country house and gardens, that also boasts a large deer park.

The green gardens and protected parklands encircle the property for miles, and make for a great family walk, providing ample photo opportunities – with the odd deer if you’re lucky!

In the spring and summer months, the gardens are also blanketed with bluebells and wildflowers which would provide the perfect nature shot for your Instagram feed.

You can also bring your four-legged friend along for the photoshoot as they are welcome in the deer park, gardens (from 12 noon), shop (currently closed) and ice cream parlour- provided they are kept on a short lead.


Dunham Massey is also steeped in over 300 years of history and was once home to two families, the Booths and the Greys.
