We broke our journey from Wensham at this first rate National Trust property. They really have an excellent operation here. It was probably the hottest day of the year, but between us we saw the Mill working (a real treat) the House, including the interesting WW2 Museum, and the gardens. The staff were excellent, booking in a coach party with... More

Lovely National Trust property with great gardens for children and picnics (bring a rug) including an adventure playground, lots of little paths to run down and a mill which still mills its own flour. The house is interesting with lots of clocks to get the children to count and find while you look at the rooms. Limited numbers in the... More

Wonderful Gardens; the most imaginitive area planted with JUST Silver Birch - quite ghostly and white, very lovely, relaxing. Nicely done.

As National Trust members we're used to seeing gorgeous places but this one was outstanding. The house was bequeathed by Lord Fairhaven to the Trust at the end of the sixties and is in wonderful condition. The painting, sculptures, furnishings and soft furnishings are exquisite. The gardens are glorious with a lovely river walk to a working watermill where you... More

It is National Trust so we didn't have to pay . It is fairly expensive but so worth it as there is... More

I did not visit the actual house as I did not have enough time. The gardens are huge and well worth a visit. It has a lovely shop and restaurant. Its a great day out but allow a full day to do everything

Vast grounds to walk around, with some very interesting planting in some of the areas. The house is rambling, and has some interesting 1960s features on show at the moment. Don't miss the working flour mill by the Lode.

My wife and I are members and took a friend one rainy day in July. The house may not be one of the most grandiose but it has a very comfortable homely feel to it. The house is interesting being full of all sorts of antiques but also interesting the background of Lord Fairhaven. The volunteers in the rooms are... More

As a member of the National Trust this house is a must visit. Large impressive and matching grounds, with usual smattering of helpful friendly, informative staff. Nice restaurant on site to digest both the house grandeur and lunch. Well worth a visit when in the area.

It is totally unreasonable to be charged an entrance fee 'inclusive of Gift Aid' without giving a visitor the opportunity to decide for themselves if they wish to pay an additional sum over and above the advertised standard charge for admission. There is no question that Anglesey Abbey is a wonderful place to visit, but the staff running the ticket... More
