Create an itinerary including Anglesey Abbey
Visit Anglesey Abbey for a fine example of British country living. Existing for almost 1,000 years and changing over time, the house is a fine example of grandeur. In 1600 CE, Thomas Parker converted the priory into a Jacobean-style house. The house remained in disrepair until 1926 when Lord Fairhaven fully restored the house and garden to what you see today. The dining room remains as one of the oldest surviving rooms in the house, dating back to 1236. Meticulously maintained gardens span 46 hectares (114 acres) and contain numerous plant species. If you're traveling early in the year, check to see if the dates of The Snowdrop Festival work with your plans. After exploring the house and gardens, visit Lode Mill, a fully operational water mill containing 150-year-old components. A functioning mill has been part of the property's makeup for nearly 1,000 years.

  • A great place to visit, you could easily make it last a day and still not see everything. £15.00 a person isn't cheap but there is 100+ acres to look round and a historical mill as well as the abbey itself. A lovely garden and parkland which is easy to get round for anyone. The parkland has a large variety of trees which would even keep Tarzan happy. The restaurant/ tearoom is well priced and top notch. Definitely visit.
  • A lovely place to spend a day. The house is small but beautiful with staff very knowledgeable. The grounds are a delight with fantastic statues appearing at every turn. I bought a book from the excellent second hand bookshop and sat on one of the deckchairs on the lawns enjoying the sunshine. Very relaxing.
