Overview

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.

The house and gardens are both worth taking a proper look around, there’s also a decent cafe plus a small adventure playground/trim trail. The treehouse isn’t anything special and we didn’t have a go at the frisbee golf, but there’s still enough to occupy a...More

This is a rather splendid NT house once owned by Peg-Leg Paget, later Marquess of Anglesey, who was Wellington's second-in-command at Waterloo. He called 'Gad, sir, I've lost my leg!' so Wellington turned, said 'Gad, sir, so you have!' and went back to his telescope...More

Second visit here but there is so much to learn. Could spend ages just looking at the Whistler mural. What a masterpiece and what a talent.

A standard National Trust property - house, gardens, activities for kids. The military connection is acknowledged but rather squeezed into a corner. There is a secondhand book room but when we visited there was a volunteer preoccupied with organising (by size?) books already on the...More

What an amazing place! In a truly fantastic location, the house and gardens certainly didn’t disappoint us, the art work in the house was amazing, with an exhibition of works by Rex Whistler, who was a guest here quite a lot. The gardens are beautiful,...More
