  • Did not book a house tour but when we went to the door to have a look the lady said to join in if we wish. Very good tour given by a lovely lady and gentleman. Great history to this place.......  more »
  • Very often has events on suitable for children and all the family. Great opportunity to feed the ducks and see the swans whilst walking around the lake.  more »
  • Mount Stewart is a typical Stately home perched up above Strangford lough.There is plenty of walks and trails for everyone to enjoy. Being on the coast I would suggest that you always have a rain coat...  more »

  • 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.
  • It has loads to offer for everyone the house is great and the walks around the grounds are out of this world
  • Brilliant country manor and excellent wedding venue.
