This past weekend was European Heritage Open Day which allows the public access for free into some of the nations wonderful historic homes and buildings.
We decided to visit Ballywalter Park on the Ards Peninsula, having never visited before. Thankfully the weather held up.
Ballywalter Park is privately owned and the upkeep alone must be staggering, considering the size of the house and the outbuildings and estate.
I took quite a few photos, so browse through at your own pace!
The stable yard above.
Gates to the Walled Garden, which unfortunately was closed to the public.
I think this might be the oldest wheelbarrow I've ever seen - if that's what it is!
The parklands and bridge
I spy through the balustrades ...
One of the best parts of the house is the domed conservatory,recently restored...
