Christmas at Mount Stewart

We have plenty to warm the coldest of hands and hearts.

This Christmas will be very different for everyone this year and our festivities are going to look a bit different too. We will be embracing nature and taking inspiration from the great outdoors this winter with a festive trail and some christmas crafts you can do at home. 

Santa Lake Trail
