About the neighbourhood
It’s hard to believe that Strangford was once situated on the equator. Of course, this was 5-million years ago!! The deposits laid down then and since have shaped the scenery around Strangford into an area of outstanding natural which you will see and enjoy today. Within 1 mile from Number 42 is Castleward.

The mid-Georgian mansion is an architectural curiosity of its time, built inside and out in two distinct styles, Classical and Gothic. The Victorian laundry, playroom, cornmill, leadmine and sawmill give the full flavour of how the estate worked. The grounds encompass woodland and lough-side paths and horse trails, formal gardens, Old Castle Ward, Temple Wa...
