Just as Lord Fairhaven left it

Anglesey Abbey is fairly easy to reach - it's signposted off junction 35 of the A14 (A1303 exit), between Cambridge and Newmarket. This review is mainly about the house, but it's... read more

Anglesey Abbey is fairly easy to reach - it's signposted off junction 35 of the A14 (A1303 exit), between Cambridge and Newmarket. This review is mainly about the house, but it's only fair to say that there are really extensive grounds and gardens - certainly enough to enable you to spend a major part of a day in viewing them....

Anglesey Abbey is stunning no matter what time of the year you visit. The house and grounds are maintained to a very high standard and the restaurant offers a nice selection of meals and drinks. The cakes are delicious. If you're lucky enough to visit when the mill is in operation then it's worth a visit - just be careful... More

We love Anglesey Abbey. It captures us every time we visit. Lord Fairhaven collected some of the most beautiful furniture, paintings and exquisite objects. The gardens are lovely and the visitor centre is wonderful.

Aslocal area residcents, we should have been to the Abbey before but every time we have tried to visit in the past it has been so crowded that we have abandoned our visit. Finally made it twice in the past year, and what a joy it is. This must be a gem in the National Trust's properties, the gardens alone... More

Took a nine year old and headed for the woodland adventure area - about 15/20 minutes walk through the woods. The concept is great with lots to fire the imagination of youngsters. Was surprised to see how tacky some of it was - the activity centre was messy, three of the five hammocks had holes in and were unusable, information... More

The house is a comfortable but elegant residence with interesting works of art. The gardens are lovely and its well worth going to see the snowdrops in early spring and the winter garden.

Spent a lovely afternoon here. Our daughters loved the gardens, so much free space to run and the tree house area was a real hit. Will definitely be going again as still lots of parts to explore

Beautiful walks through exotic foliage and flower beds. A truly invigorating experience for all garden lovers with both common and rare varieties on show at all times of the year. We often visit and never tire of the displays throughout the year in a classic English estate. The stately house is also great but we prefer the gardens and grounds.

My husband and I realised this was only a 40 minute drive for us so took the time one day to go here, and it was definitely worth it! A beautiful old house with some incredible art and interiors, the gardens are amazing too, especially on a sunny day. Much bigger grounds than I expected, with so much to see... More
