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.

We are extremely fortunate to have access to this wonderful National Trust Property and gardens. No matter what season Mount Stewart gardens offers lots of surprises. The house has recently been completely refurbished to its original glory.

A really lovely National Trust property. The staff are helpful and educated, and we decided to sign up for a tour of the house (you can only see the house via tours in the winter I believe), free with your entry fee. The tour guide was informative and willing to answer questions. The tour was about 35 minutes, but I... More

A lovely, relaxing way to spend a few hours. I have visited Mount Stewart a number of times and it never fails to please. The house is not a museum piece, it has been continuously occupied, even during its recent massive refurbishment. It is a majestic yet comfortable home with some wonderful paintings and chandeliers. The best part of a... More

Relaxing grounds and perfect for a chill out walk. The gardens are beautiful and inspiring to anyone with even a passing interest in plants.

We both like Mount Stewart. It's good for both a walk around the grounds or for a tour of the house. The National Trust have worked very hard to look after the grounds and the house. Every time we have visited we have thoroughly enjoyed it. The grounds are accessible to all. The walks are not difficult.

Very overdue first visit to this beautiful property. On entry the National Trust staff were on the hard sell for memberships and charged us the gift aid price without giving us the option of which price to pay. The gardens are stunning, and the walk out by the lake was brought to life as the sun shone throughout our visit.... More

The house is a self guided tour with docents that try very hard to answer any questions. There are only a few rooms on display but they are well organized and lots of interesting and unusual objects on display. But it was the the gardens and walk around the estate that is spectacular. Granted we were there on a crisp... More
