Home of the Marquess of Anglesey, with spectacular views of Snowdonia.Set on the shores of the Menai Strait amidst breathtakingly beautiful scenery, this elegant house was redesigned by James Wyatt in the 18th century. The 1930s restyled interior is famous for its Rex Whistler association, containing his largest painting and exhibition.A military museum contains relics from the 1st Marquess of Anglesey's tenure, who commanded the cavalry at the Battle of Waterloo.There's a fine spring garden and Australasian arboretum, with an understorey of shrubs and wild flowers, a summer terrace, and massed hydrangeas which give autumn colour.A woodland walk gives access to a marine path beside the Menai Strait.

Another one of our favourite places to visit a Lovely Country house set in a Superb Location. Managed to spot a Red Squirrel which was only a few feet away from us and by the time we had switched on the camera and began a search for it managed to glimpse it again about a Hundred yards away quickly making...

Highlights of house must be - the view across to Snowdonia, the Marquess' study ( planned disorder), the Rex Whistler mural and how it changes according to where u are. Biggest let down was the Mansion Tearoom - dirty uncleared floor, hot food coming out of kitchen cold, menu items not being available, staff moving chiller cabinets past diners -... More

A fascinating trip around an old NT country mansion with insite into the eminence of the family who lived there and the painter Whistler. We felt that there was a lot more that we would have liked to have seen as it is a huge property, and can't all be staff apartments. Friendly guides and fabulous tromp l'oeille. Very limited...

Very interesting and informative tour of the house. Excellent guides with very good knowledge.We did the walk to the Rhododendron garden which gave good views of the Meani Straits and Snowdon. Lunch in the cafe was disappointing. Jacket potato very overcooked and dry as were the beans that went with it.My cheese sandwich was dry and just plonked on a... More

We had a wonderful visit. The guides are so knowledgeable and welcoming. We were absolutely mesmerised by the Whistler painting, and this alone would be worth the visit, but the house and gardens were equally interesting.

What a beautiful place in a stunning location. We were desperate to see the red squirrels and we managed to spot 3 so weren't disappointed. Lots of area for the children to play in the woods and a magnificent tree house. Went for a nice walk through the woods. Would love to visit again when the house is actually open.

Called in late afternoon while visiting family in the area. Wonderful setting and rooms that really looked true to their past. Awesome collection of paintings and really interesting connection to Whistler and his works. Enjoyed the Waterloo exhibition. Will visit again in better weather to sample the extensive grounds.

Well it is part of Wales....we arrived in drizzle and could not see the mountains for the mist and rain but the place is still spectacular. The history of the family is well presented and unlike some NT places I will not mistake this property for another one. The walk beside the strait was great even without the view. The... More

It rained and it was cold the day I came here. Luckily the garden walk was in just a fine drizzle but disappointingly the effect of storm Doris caused much of the area to be closed for safety reasons. The staff was very friendly, the restaurant did was the National Trust do and the house kept us entertained for an... More
