Bluebell Walks

Bluebells at Castle Ward

A welcome splash of colour from our native bluebells marks April and May, covering the ground in the shaded woodland areas of Castle Ward.

The woodland around Castle Ward is the perfect environment for bluebells to thrive, with its shaded, wet ground and they've been delighting visitors to the estate for hundreds of years.

Bluebell Trail

We've put together a trail to make sure you get to the top bluebell spots, ranging from a short stroll around Mountain Wood, to the 'Grand Tour' which also takes in the shores of Strangford Lough.
