Mount Stewart is well worth a visit. The grounds are superb and the House truly amazing. Great for walking the dogs or for a relazing stroll around the lake, gardens and house. Highly recommend a visit. You won't be disappointed.

The ground in this attraction are superb, especially in the autumn where the colours are astounding, especially if you visit of a dry sunny day when you can sit on the benches around the park to simply enjoy the views across the lake. You can add a visit to the house but fro me the grounds are the thing. The... More

Although the house was closed for Christmas and we had heard fantastic things about it, we were still pleased that the gardens were open. Such a lovely place on a sunny day, any time of year!

Had a lovely visit with mr & Mrs clause they welcomed the children into their sitting room & spoke to each child individually. I do have to say it would be better to advise on the national trust website what the visit would involve. My son is 19months old & the majority of the visit was not suited to his... More

Well worth the National Trust membership to have access to places like this. Extensive informal gardens with easily accessible walks, taking in lake and wooded areas. For the more active and adventurous, there are trails extending over several km of woodland, with opportunities to see local wildlife if you're patient. The formal walled gardens are well manicured and have quirky... More

I've been to Mount Stewart several times and always enjoyed my visit. This last visit was with my mother who was visiting from Asia. She was really impressed with the overall surroundings - the wonderful colours of the plants and trees, the swan, and of course the house. Highly recommended especially for the garden lovers out there.

This National trust property is great for a day out with the family. The grounds are very extensive with some lovely walks. For those of a more horticultural bent the formal gardens are spectacular and now that the house has been refurbished there is plenty to do for a whole day.
