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 has now re-opened after our 3 year long restoration project.We've brought back the elegance and charm of the house when it was home of the 7th Marchioness Edith, Lady Londonderry and her family in the early 20th century and we look forward to welcoming you to enjoy in all its splendour.
To find out more about the house and what we've done, visit our house page.
The intricate yew topiary at Mount Stewart has delighted visitors for decades and now we've installed a new piece in the Shamrock Garden to rival them all.
The new fourteen foot high sea creature from Celtic mythology known as a Fomorian was created by local artist Terry Dorrian.

Take the path at the top of the lake which will lead you to what was once the Rose Garden, Dairy and Vinery which houses one of the oldest vines in the UK and Ireland.
This is a work in progress but with the help of our supporters we plan to restore this area to it’s former glory.
