Overview

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.

This was a lovely house to visit. The cafe was great too. But the gardens were a let down. No outside bit worth visiting apart from the view you can see from the side of the house. We went to the play area and found...More

The high points of the visit was the Rex Whistler murals which were very impressive. The room stewards were friendly & gave us some useful information about "their" rooms.The cafe was pleasant & the tea delicious.

Yes, dogs are more than welcome in the grounds on short leads. Everywhere except children's play areas, the house and terraced garden.
