Took my dogs for a morning walk here as it is about 20 minutes from my house. Cant believe i have this lovely place so close to me. They have a special enclosed area for off lead dog exercise and the gardens are absolutely stunning.

On arrival, as this was our first visit here, we had great instructions and a huge map from the information hut. A quick tea, coffee and scone in the house and off around the gardens. The walled garden was so peaceful, we could have spent...More

Lovely gardens for a leisurely walk. Rhododendrons are particularly striking at this time of year. Lots of mature trees. However, very expensive for a walk if you are a visitor and not a member. They need to create something that is more affordable for tourists...More

Now that spring has almost arrived, and with it the promise of an amazing burst of colour from the ancient rhododendron stands, the visitor is in for a treat. There has been a big effort to put hard paths down in order to avoid walking...More

This was our first visit to Rowallane and, although we can appreciate that it would be a lovely place in spring, summer or autumn, the Christmas fair was a big let down. It was heavily populated and as we left we could not understand what...More

We live only a few miles away so this is a regular visitor. During the summer it is open to 8pm and we enjoy a quiet walk after tea. The new paths are great and stay dry so don't need to wear boots anymore. Gardens...More
