Anglesey Abbey is a part of the National Trust and is a beautiful garden, with a functional mill selling organic produce, a historic house, acres of green pasture, excellent spot for picnic and a day out with family. We loved our walk inside the garden, rose garden, sculptures. Beautiful day spent at Anglesey Abbey.

Great place for a walk, I like the little church-ruins-folly up the top of the hill in the corner. Good place to bring dogs. Scenic.

Back today to fill my lungs with fresh air and to leave cares behind. This place really is a wonderful haven with something new every time or just plain peace and quiet. Thought I had seen most places in the grounds now after visiting weekly for the last few months but no...one helpful lady managed to suggest a different walk... More

The gardens are spectacular, the house is lovely but not as grand as other NT properties, the canteen is pricey but has a good selection of food. If you get the chance to go at the end of the season you must make time to walk through the dahlia garden, it is beautiful.

We have just been to Anglsey Abbey for a visit to see the snowdrops and the winter garden. We were not disappointed and had a lovely day out,the garden is beautifully laid out and the plants are very interesting and colourful. We were lucky and had a mild sunny day and the mill was grinding wheat while we were there.... More

We went to see the snowdrops which were absolutely beautiful - but probably would have been better not to have gone on a sunny Sunday in February as it was incredibly busy. The winter garden is fantastic - a real joy. We enjoyed the mill and the activity areas looked great fun. We couldn't use the restaurant as it was... More

A National Trust property which is worth a visit at any time of the year as the gardens always have something in season. Lovely walk through the Winter garden viewing the snowdrops at the moment, January-Early March. The gardens have marvellous scents as well as colour in the spring and summer. The Abbey is worth a visit, check opening times... More

Anglesey Abbey is a National Trust attraction with a house and garden. Only the garden, grounds and nature areas were open on our visit, BUT they are worth an extended stay on their own. Obviously, other people thought that as well as the place was very busy - it being half term and a very pleasant sunny day. The Winter... More
