We visited one of our favourate National Trust properties last week to see the outcome of the long awaited restoration of Mount Stewart.The term awesome is much over used today however it is very justified in this case.The new format of separate guides in each room of the house is great as is the absence of formal tour groups.

Wonderful place to have a walk around and there is a cafe you can visit if you get a bit peckish. I love to walk around the lake on a nice day with my family. You get some awesome pictures too!!

Incredible history to the whole place.One of the top ten gardens to visit in the world, famed for its grandeur & bold planting schemes of many rare plants. We could have spent hours reading & looking at incredible paintings . Loved it. Nothing to dislike except the rain & strong winds just like home in Portrush.
