So sad to have to write this review as we have always loved this tradition and it marked the start of Xmas for our family. However, this year’s was a let-down and lacked the magic of previous visits. The fire show was the best part but it felt like too many people let through each slot making it feel like we were queuing. Also the courtyard which last year was alive with the sound of a band that encouraged participation with the kids joining in banging a tambourine was silent and lacklustre.

Anglesey Abbey is well kept and a great place to go or a walk. The walks are peaceful and it is a large area, so even on busy days it is still quiet. The car park is big and the other facilities, such as cafe and shop are good.

Very large car park which is free. The cafe facilities will suit everyone plenty of choice home cooked food. Lots of safe trails to follow suit all abilities mobility scooters also available. Paths follow lots of flower & plant areas as well as different walks through trees. huge lawn area for the children to run around. picnics encouraged. Don’t miss the silver birch trees with white trunks quite spectacular!!
Part of the Abbey is opened with specific timed visits lots of history about Winston Churchill.

As National Trust members, entrance is free. Membership is well-worth getting, especially if you live in this area as there are the NT properties nearby. There is always something lovely to see in the gardens at Anglesey Abbey at any time of the year. The last two times we visited it was the autumn colour with spectacular colour of the Cotinus leaves; a wonderful Dahlia border and carpets of cyclamen hederifolium under the trees. There are also lots of small birds in the trees, including Britain's smallest birds - goldcrests, and both Green and Great Spotted Woodpeckers. A kingfisher can also sometimes be seen near the river. The restaurant is well run and has a simple but good selection of drinks, snacks, and meals. The shop contains a number of tasteful items suitable for presents and the garden centre always has some interesting, good-quality plants for sale although none of it is cheap!

What a lovely day,
Large carpark,greeted by lovely staff who explained where the toilets and cafe and gift shop were then we were given a map.
We made our way a long the winter walk taking in the colours of the trees and plants on this mild autums day. We came across the mill which was open for viewing. By the mill on the river was a lovely family of swans who seemed to love their picture being taken, we headed towards the house where we were greeted again by a friendly lady who explained to take note of the numbers on the doors of the rooms. The house was wonderful and well worth viewing. We really had a great day.

We were staying in the area and being members of the National trust did some research and found the Anglesey Abbey had limited accessibility for two members of our party. So on a beautiful Autumn afternoon decided to visit. There was ample disability parking and access was completely flat. At the membership desk was a disabled member of staff who was very informative and gave us a map of the accessible pathway to go to Lode Watermill and around the gardens and said to ask a member of staff at the house and they would let us in to the ground floor dining room & tapestry hall & kitchens, as the rest was not accessible. The path way through the winter walk & gardens to the mill was lovely and the mill was working grinding grain.The walk along the river to the Abbey was nice and also to the visitor centre and tea shop. We all said that it had been worth the visit and had enjoyed it and we would go back again if we were in the area.

Spent a day visiting Anglesey Abbey. We toured the house which was interesting though (in my opinion) the owner/collector had the worst taste in furniture ever!! Other rooms such as the kitchens, scullery etc were interesting. The house volunteer staff were helpful and friendly. We also visited the mill, which we have visited before so didn't spend long this time at, but children would love it and you can buy the flour. We spent a lot of time exploring the extensive grounds and enjoying the autumn colours. The cafe is good and modern. A word to the National Trust though - not everyone wants horseradish in their beef sandwiches, nor mustard in their ham sandwiches!! The fact that that was all that was left at about 3pm probably bears out what I say! It's a lovely place and I'd be happy to go back any time.

The winter garden, recently augmented, is fabulous in all seasons. The house, bookshop and café are all really nice. The mill and river are photogenic. There are periodic art installations. Great trees and dahlias. This has to be the best National Trust property for miles around.

One of our regular haunts, fun to see the changes through the seasons. The house always has something to offer; the collection of clocks is exceptional; similarly the gardens are extensive and provide infinite variety. On this occasion I had an excellent and good value gluten free lunch- sausages, mash and cabbage - which was large and delicious.
