  • Beautifully restored house and gardens. The art collection in the house is worth the visit alone. Interesting historical context but the star of the show are the wonderful gardens. Well worth a visit in any season.
  • Beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. Lovely gardens and woodland to wander around. The cafĂ© provides reasonably priced tasty food.
  • An excellent national trust property, set on the Strangford lough coast, with a large house and both formal and informal gardens. There's also a good cafe with indoor and outdoor seating. It's very family friendly - well worth a visit for at least half a day.
