Fantastic gardens and the house itself really stands out, set aside most of a full day to see thoroughly. Gift shop has a lot of nice things (if a bit expensive) and the cafe is worth eating in, grounds are great for a picnic though!

We are National Trust members and this is our closest property, but it is also special to us as this is where my husband proposed, overlooking the lake! Perfect place for a summer (or snowy) walk round the lake, bring a picnic. To keep the kids amused borrow a Tracker Pack from reception with lots of activities to enhance their... More

This place is a great way to spend a relaxing day outdoors. When visiting in June, the main house was going through major renovations so we walked though it very quickly. The grounds are enormous and there are loads of different things to see. The trail around the lake is lovely and even buggy friendly if you happen to be... More

A very interesting house with the most beautiful gardens. It was a nice sunny day when we visited so spent most of our time in the gardens. They are very well looked after and absolutely stunning. You can spend a whole day here with the family there is so much to see. Plenty of room for children to run around... More

Just got back from the Father's day event at Mount Stewart which was a brilliant day out. Super display of cars old and new and lots on offer for the children, there were many attractions for them to enjoy. Lots of stalls and catering units to suit all tastes. Afterwards a gentle walk around the gardens on such a beautiful... More

After a 14 year gap, it is wonderful to say that the garden is even better than before. Outstanding plants, outstanding setting, splendid maintenance standards. Didn't manage to do the house as well - 5 hours in the garden and still not enough. Only thing that would improve it would be better labelling of plants.
