Description
Mount Stewart House, Garden & Temple of the Winds

Neo-classical house and celebrated gardens

The famous gardens at Mount Stewart were planted in the 1920s by Edith, Lady Londonderry, and have been nominated a World Heritage Site. The magnificent series of outdoor 'rooms' and vibrant parterres contain many rare plants that thrive in the mild climate of the Ards Peninsula. There are dramatic views over Strangford Lough from the Temple of the Winds. The house tour includes world-famous paintings and stories about the prominent political figures to whom the Londonderry family played host
