Anglesey Abbey, Lode

4.7
#2 of 43 in Parks in Cambridgeshire
Architectural Building Historic Site
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.

  • Another stunning family day out from the national trust family membership. This is a gem with stunning gardens, tons of space and imaginative activities for the kids. Today we went den building in the woodland, simple ideas done fabulously with mini den building for the little ones as well - they could have done this all day long.
  • Great place to explore, huge grounds for kids to run around, tree house, hammocks for kids and grown ups. Cafe and working mill. Parking free, one of my favourite places to visit.
  • Lovely walks around the grounds with interesting, well devised features and activities to entertain the kids. The shop is well stocked with National Trust goods and the cafe/restaurant serves a nice selection. It can get very busy.
  • Fantastic place if you like gardens and stately homes. They even throw in a working water mill too. Worth a visit.
  • Very interesting house. Fascinating history. Knowledgeable guides. Good cafe. Lovely gardens and parkland.
