The house was built in the 17th-century and much remodelled in Georgian times, enjoying an elegant 18th-century decoration. Today it is owned by the National Trust property and opened to the public.
At Ardress House is a traditional farmyard, and it is surrounded by 100 acres of countryside with apple orchards, charming woodland and riverside walks.
The atmosphere of a working farmyard has been rekindled with the return of small animals.
Mac Ivors Cider Co has farmed in Ardress for the past 150 years, and won the National Trust Fine Farm Produce Award – the first ever to be awarded in Ulster.
