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.

Visiting this house makes for a lovely day out. Pretty gardens to stroll around and an interesting house to see. By far the most spectacular thing about it is the huge, intricate mural by Rex Whistler and the history behind it. A must see if...More

The massive mural by Whistler is a must for art lovers, it is incredible anf full of quirks and surprises. Lovely house, but the views of the Menai Straits as you walk through the gardens is wow.

It is a priviledge to visit this lovely private stately home and garden on the banks of the Menai Straits. It has a unique position with sublime views.

Absolutely fantastic. Have been here many times and the house and especially location never fails to impress. On a sunny day the gardens are wonderful and the house is always so homely and welcoming.
