Remarkable 18th-century house and 98-acre garden that reflect the rich history of the Stewart family who played a leading role in British social and political life.

Just a superb place with great gardens and long (3-5 mile) walks around the estate. Tea room was excellent with home made cakes. House was really lovely and staff were very informative. Hard to fault.

We went without prior knowledge of what history lies here. As with all places we visited in Northern Island, its full value is realised in engaging with the charming staff and volunteers. We toured the house outside of a tour but were afforded generous insight...More

The house itself is lovely and recently renovated by the National Trust but the gardens are absolutely spectacular. We walked around for 45 mins before our house tour and loved it. Very different to English gardens, there were plants and statues from all over the...More

The house is fascinating but the garden is the star. Every step brings a new view and a photo opportunity. There is a great tea room, and the room stewards are delightful.

Visited Mountstewart again last week, as a member I try to go there as often as possible. Wonderful place, beautiful gardens and lake. This time we took a picnic and that turned out to be a good decision as our grandson really enjoyed the experience....More

yes there is a fee to visit the house and Gardens. I can't remember how much it cost, the tearoom is lovely everything is home baked.
