Great day out

Wonderful gardens and an amazing natural play park impressed adults and children alike! Had a great walk around the lake and marvelled at the building.

I have always loved Mount Stewart and could never fault it. However, on recent visits the reception staff have most definitely not been pleasant or helpful. During this particular visit I was quizzed surrounding my membership and then asked my age even though I had presented a valid membership card. This is not the first time this has happened to...

Mount Stewart is the perfect place to unwind, relax, let the kids run around, (maybe tire them out) and enjoy the beauty of nature everywhere you look. There are walks of all lengths, gardens to inspire you, statues that amaze you and a tour of the house you will never forget. You can spend the whole day here and not... More

If you have an free afternoon this is the place to spend it. The house and gardens are amazing. The whole house has recently been refurbished and looks great. The people who are there are very knowledgeable and have interesting stores to tell about the house and the family. The gardens are worth a visit and on a good sunny... More

No matter what time of the year you visit there is always something of interest to see in the formal gardens or around the lake area. The huge variety of plants both native and from more exotic locations creates constant eye catching displays. My favourite times and places are high summer in the formal gardens and autumn around the lake... More

Mount Stewart has recently undergone a transformation and is very in keeping with the heritage of the house. Fanastic inside and out. Staff have a great knowledge of the Stewart family and are very keen to share the stories. The work in the house shows it off to a very high standard. The gardens are great to walk around and...

The gardens and lake are beautiful! Pick a month that plants like rhodedendrons bloom, the walk is quite short and well kept. The house itself is beautiful and well worth the tour. The cafe is well run and you don't have to visit the grounds to use it.

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
