This is a National Trust property left to them by Lord Fairhaven, a wealthy American, on his death in 1966. Parts of the house include post war furnishings that I can remember from my childhood and others were designed by him to show his wonderful collections. I particularly liked the clocks but there were great tapestries, paintings and china. There... More

Also known as Anglesey Abbey and Gardens and Lode Mil, a National Trust Property. First impression were at the car park I do not recall such a professionally laid out car park in any other NT property. What was I letting myself in for ? Even the Reception area was purpose built and modern which included the cafeteria and facilities.... More

We decided to have trip out in late April and the pin landed here. We bought a family ticket and in we went. The gardens and garden trails are great for young families ( will definitely have the younger members asleep on the home journey). It is easy to cover a few miles on these and en route there is...

We absolutely love Anglesey Abbey, it’s a regular picnic spot for us. The very extensive gardens are beautiful all year round, from the stunning winter garden (autumn until spring), to the wonderful snowdrops, daffodils, hyacinths then dahlia's and roses through to the amazing herbaceous garden in the summer - there is something for everyone. Masses of wide open spaces to... More

We visited on a very wet Sunday with our 81 year old parents. The staff were very helpful and attentive, providing a wheelchair for my mother in law who otherwise would have struggled with the walking involved. The house was fascinating and we were lucky to be there whilst the grand piano was being played - could have listened for... More

Popped in here on our way back south from Norfolk, what a truly wonderful place, the distance from the entrance to the Abbey was for me (being disabled) was quit a way, however they have transport to get you there and the drivers were absolutely brilliant. Food in the restaurant was very reasonably priced, staff excellent. Will go again when... More

We called in on our way from a week in Norfolk. Wasn't sure what to expect as was more of a planned stop to stretch legs. We were really impressed. Beautiful grounds which were huge. Still enjoyable despite the rain. Huge house and very friendly and enthusiastic staff. Water mill was working briefly. The whole place well worth a trip... More

This is the best house I've ever visited that's open to the public. The staff in all the rooms were very helpful informative and happy.

One of the nicest winter gardens (and small houses) (and interesting water mill) on the National Trust list. Easily accessible from outer London, Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and further north, it's very well worth a visit in later winter/early spring. The gardens are extensive and fascinating - nothing compares with the copse of white-barked silver birch trees. Wheelchair access is brilliant... More

On the day we were there the house/mill were closed (Monday and Tuesday). The gardens are varied and provide an enormous area to wander around. Different areas are well sign-posted and allow for walks of differing lengths. You can easily spend 3+hours wandering around the grounds which would be a great place for a picnic with children. Also, good access... More
