Christmas at Mount Stewart

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

Why not take a gentle winter stroll around the grounds, kids and adults alike will love the White Stag trail available at Reception for you to follow. You might even encounter Santa’s Sleigh on your Journey, but be careful not to wake the Sleeping Elves.
