With spectacular views across Strangford Lough, this 60-acre wetland reserve offers extensive walks through a range of natural habitats, including woodlands, reed beds and meadows, set around a series of ponds and tidal lagoons. Keep your eyes peeled for the huge diversity of birds and other native wildlife. You can also explore the heritage apple orchard.

Always take your 2 for 1 card with you
Some gardens have pre-booking systems in place – take your 2 for 1 card with you to validate your booking.
If a garden offers both pre-booking and walk-up options, we recommend booking prior to your visit to avoid disappointment should the garden be busy.
Please don’t make multiple pre-bookings or share your 2 for 1 card – card misuse will invalidate your discount claim at the garden.
