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.

The house is very interesting and, of course, the highlight is to visit Rex Whistler's incredible painting which is a must for all ages. The word 'Painting' does not adequately describe it. The property is well worth visiting but we would advise everyone to take...More

Great location overlooking the strait. House interesting architecture and battlements over the straits are different. Great walk (nearly 3 Miles) with our dog through the woods and along the walls. Italian terrace was superb. Nice cafe and good coffee.
