I got married in Mount Stewart House. On the plus side the setting was wonderful and the photos were beautiful - I really did feel like a princess on my special day. On the downside we weren't allowed to get married until 2pm because of ongoing tours which left very little time for photos and mingling with our guests -... More

We have enjoyed this place time and time again as it has a relaxing atmosphere and it's great when a jazz Sunday is on. Get there early if the weather is fair. Staff lovely and the food is tasty.

An excellent property to visit on a daytrip ,wonderful grounds, walks, gardens .Gardeners are very informative, a good number of events held within the grounds during the year. A visit to the grounds and lake is very relaxing , with a nice cup of coffee afterwards in the café/restaurant, we take our grand children and dog on regular visits .... More

I had never visited Mountstewart Gardens until my son's wedding last August. He had arranged to have his wedding photos taken here. What an amazing place, everything was perfect, gardens are so well maintained, all neat and tidy. If anyone nearby is getting married, I would highly recomend they book the gardens for their phoographs.

I visit Mount Stewart at least two or three times a week, excellent place to relax, have a lovely walk, and to finish with a nice cup of coffee in a very good coffee shop. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly. There is also a chance to buy plants, cuttings from their own gardens... The gift shop is also worth... More

I am a national trust member and live just a few miles beyond mt Stewart. I quite often stop on my way home from work for a quick walk round the beautiful lake. Every season is different but everyone is special. The ducks and swans are fun to feed for the children but just sitting on one of the many... More

We've been to Mount Stewart many times and enjoy the gardens in particular. We travelled there looking forward to a pleasant and relaxing walk around the lake. So, it was disappointing to find restricted access to a large part of the lake circuit due to TV filming. What was said to be a few minutes of delay turned out to... More

The house is managed by the National Trust and is undergoing a restoration that will cost around £7m, according to our guide. The tour of the house explains how the restoration (of the rooms and the 15,000 (!) objects) is being handled, and you get to meet at least one of the expert restorers whilst they are at work. Their... More
