This castle/garden has a fascinating history and I would recommend a visit to the web site for some background information on the Dobbs family.
The present house of 1730 stands in a splendid position overlooking Belfast Lough and the County Down shore. Features include woodland, parkland and avenue trees with vestiges of a formal garden from an earlier house. There is a landscaped park for the 18th century house with a lake, a bridge and a cascade.
There is a walled garden looks that looks magnificent.
David Ledsham, with whom I’m sure you are all familiar, and a personal friend of the family, will be conducting the visit
