Notice: Please note that the house will be closed from 21st September 2014 as we prepare to re-open the house again in April 2015. Our gardens remain open all year round.

Neo-classical house and celebrated gardens

Mount Stewart is one of the most inspiring and unusual gardens in the National Trust's ownership.

The garden reflects a rich tapestry of design and great planting artistry that was the hallmark of Edith, Lady Londonderry. The mild climate of Strangford Lough allows astonishing levels of planting experimentation. The formal areas exude a strong Mediterranean feel and resemble an Italian villa landscape; the wooded areas support a range of plants from all corners of the world, ensuring something to see whatever the season.

Mount Stewart House

The house is now closed for the rest of the season while restoration work inside continues. We look forward to welcoming you in April 2015 when the house will open for visitors to enjoy in all its splendour.

Please check back soon for more information on our re-opening after our 3 year long restoration project.

To find out more about the work we've done to the house, please visit our Projects page.

The wonderful gardens are open for you to explore all year round.
