The Mount Congreve House & Gardens are in for an exciting transformation to turn it into an world class tourist destination. The popular tourist attraction will be closing its doors on October 10th to make room for the redevelopment and renovations. It is hoped that works will be complete for the tourist season in 2022.

The upgrade works are to include: 

  • Renovation and up-grade of Mount Congreve House to provide for access by the public, host events, visitor accommodation and offices. Works will include installation of a lift, universal access, toilets, kitchen, fire safety improvements and installation of a bio-energy heating system.
  • Development of the farm yard to incorporate a café; offices, meeting facilities, craft yard; children’s play area and a retail unit.
  • Other works will include the development of a car park, waste water treatment facility, creation of a wetland garden, upgrade of existing greenhouse, upgrade of apartments and cottages to provide high quality tourist accommodation, enhancements to the grounds and paths and development of a children’s playground.
  • Improvements to sight lines on the L4411 by setting back the estate wall at the entrance just west of the main entrance into the House and Gardens. The second entrance will be used for traffic entering the gardens and the existing main entrance will be used for traffic exiting the gardens.
