Anglesey Abbey, Lode

(4.7/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Anglesey Abbey into our Lode travel itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Lode.

  • This place is so different each time we visit. This time the autumn colours were amazing. I have never seen the car park so full. Once you leave the cafe area the crowds disappear. A triumph of gardening skills on display here.
  • I have visited on numerous occasions and always enjoyed myself. The grounds are very accessible. I have not tried the house. The staff always try to make my visit fun and entertaining. I am a wheelchair user.
  • Beautiful place to visit. Went to see the annual winter lights and they didn't disappoint. Would love to see it without illuminations, but the lights were fantastic and we would definitely go again!
  • We had a wonderful day at Anglesey in August 2016. The staff were so helpful, our 10 year old granddaughter enjoyed checking things off in her 'things to do' book and the 'cube' was a great success. We were blessed by super weather, but it seems a lot of thought has gone into planning things for children to do, including on wet days. Well done! We will come again.
  • Always well kept and colour in every season. House is worth a visit, just check opening times in winter.
