Enchanting mansion and gardens, 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 and contains his exquisite romantic mural and the largest exhibition of his works.

A military museum contains relics from the First 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, an italianate-style summer terrace, and massed hydrangeas which give autumn colour.

A woodland walk gives access to a marine path beside the Menai Strait.

From the house and grounds, the views across the Menai Strait to the mountains of Snowdonia are simply stunning.

What's on

Coming up we have an exhibition by artist Andrew Southall, a visit from Mr Bimbamboozle and our rare plant fair.

Spring is sprung

Spring is here and the house and gardens are now fully open. See the refurbished saloon following the flood of two years ago and enjoy the new viewing points along the Menai Strait.
