I've been for several years and every year I've been I've enjoyed it and seen something new. It's great for all the family with kids getting lost in fantasy the big gardens.

A great place to visit with family and friends. Acres of parking, beautiful walks especially with the winter sun setting and so much for the kids to run around and play in. Love this place and can't recommend it enough!

A great thing to do when visiting Cambridge. They have lovely grounds and there are free guided tours here. A real oasis. There is a nice cafe at the property, which, itself is very beautiful.

We have visited Anglesey Abbey on a number of occasions-which is owned by the National Trust and has a very good restaurant/cafe. The walks through the gardens are lovely-especially during the winter to appreciate the colours of the various dogwoods and stunning birches.

It was some misgivings that we accepted the invitation of friends to visit the Christmas lights and woodland walk, dreading a tacky display of illuminated santas and reindeer - Blackpool comes to Quy. It wasn't like that at all. The lights were very skilfully set, making the most of the striking coloured bushes and trees in the Winter garden (especially... More

A beautiful historic house in gorgeous grounds. A great place to visit for all ages. We normally take a picnic to keep costs down and buy drinks form the cafe. The cafe is excellent, but can be expensive for a whole family.

Back again, I love this NT property. This is one of our favourites, we were lucky enough to see Lord Fairhaven's bedroom which we haven't been able to see before. The grounds are a real treat and I would highly recommend a few extra hours just to have a walk around them. Dahlia season is still my favourite time of... More

The staff were very welcoming and the conservation tour was fascinating - something different. Lots of effort made to entertain children in particular despite it being winter season. Food was nice and seemed good value compared to some of the Cambridge cafés.
