Owner description: Castle Ward will take you on a journey of discovery. The 18th-century eccentric house with two distinctly different styles, classical and Gothic, will entice you to explore further. This truly beautiful 332-hectare (820-acre) walled demesne, with walking trails, exotic garden, stunning vistas and picturesque farmyard, will unlock your imagination through family history, leisure pursuits, events and industrial heritage. A children's pastimes centre and laundry room are a short walk from the house in the stableyard, alongside a gift shop, second-hand bookshop and tea-room.

This place is a lovly place to spend the day. Not only if you like walks and houses go there if you like peace. It has a lovly cafe in an old stable yard with bands playing there on busy periods. From the carpark you can walk 5mins down to Strangford Lough and look over to Portaferry. There is also a large pond, great for feeding the ducks. There is also a mill house which I got to have a go at using.
