Ardwell House Gardens
An excellent garden to visit with a walled garden and woodland walks, set around 18thc. Ardwell House. The house is not open to the public.
Admission when we visited was by honesty box. can't remember how much.
Open all year, 10am. to 5 pm. every day.
There is parking, toilets and picnic areas.
The gardens are famous for their azaleas and rhododendrons.
There is a circular walk that takes you along by the ponds to the old fish ladder and back to the house with nice views over the barley fields. While we were on this walk, we came across some swans with their cygnets. We actually thought they were huge models, they appeared so large and were amazed when we realised they were real!!!
On an unclassified road, off the A716, between Sandhead and Drummore.
UPDATE: ADMISSION £3 PER ADULT.
