Home of the Marquess of Anglesey, with spectacular views of Snowdonia.Set on the shores of the Menai Strait amidst breathtakingly beautiful scenery, this elegant house was redesigned by James Wyatt in the 18th century. The 1930s restyled interior is famous for its Rex Whistler association, containing his largest painting and exhibition.A military museum contains relics from the 1st Marquess of Anglesey's tenure, who commanded the cavalry at the Battle of Waterloo.There's a fine spring garden and Australasian arboretum, with an understorey of shrubs and wild flowers, a summer terrace, and massed hydrangeas which give autumn colour.A woodland walk gives access to a marine path beside the Menai Strait.

Absolutely fantastic. Have been here many times and the house and especially location never fails to impress. On a sunny day the gardens are wonderful and the house is always so homely and welcoming.

Average but interesting National Trust property. Lovely views towards Snowdonia. Lots of walks through well tended gardens. Ideal for a picnic.

A very interesting country house with amazing views over the Menai Strait. Originally built as a holiday home, the interior walls appear to be stone but are actually painted. The highlight of our visit was the Whistler Mural which changes perspective as you walk along...More
