“Interesting house in lovely parkland”
Review of Antony House

Reviewed 6 April 2018

We visited Antony House on a rainy Sunday in March, so not the best time to appreciate its beautiful gardens and parkland. However, the daffodils were in bloom, and a large tree had been decked with ribbons and Easter eggs to brighten up the occasion, so we enjoyed a short stroll around with umbrellas up - and admired the view down to the lake in the distance. The house interior is interesting, especially the hall area which is resplendent with paintings. Portraits of King Charles I and King Charles II included. The house is still lived in by members of the Carew family, so it has the feeing of a much-loved family home. Worth returning to on a sunny day!

Limited openings throughout the year but worth making the effort. You also get a time slot to access the house but go with it because the house is lovely. Staffed by the usual helpful and knowledgeable NT volunteers and all the more special because the family are still in residence- it gives the house a warmth that other houses miss.
Lovely formal gardens as well.
Enjoyable visit.

Haven’t been for a couple of years but after visiting today, reminded how beautiful the house and gardens are. It’s a lovely spot for children to explore the gardens and go on adventures.

The gardens at Anthony are wonderful and perfect for exploring with children. There is also a woodland walk by the river to get away from everything!

A lovely visit among such knowledgeable guides. The house has super treasures, and the Carew Poles who still live there have a policy of collecting modern treasures where they can, so it's not just stuffy same-old ancestors! Though one thing I really liked was the half-chopped-up Civil War jerkin work by one of the said ancestors and showing in its/his glory in an adjacent portrait. Alongside was a superb modern crystal bowl I'd give house-room to any day... There are lovely woodland grounds and river walks too,and a several-centuries-old walnut tree that's quite spectacular presiding over the lawn. The NT does a good job here, as always.
