Explore this exceptional 332-hectare (820-acre) walled demesne dramatically set overlooking Strangford Lough and marvel at the quirky mid Georgian mansion, home of the Ward family since the 16th century. An architectural curiosity, it is built inside and out in the distinctly different styles of classical and gothic. Children can dress up and play with period toys in the Victorian Past Times Centre or learn about local wildlife at the Strangford Lough Wildlife Centre. Winding woodland, lakeside and parkland walks afford amazing unexpected vistas.
