Anglesey Abbey, a Jacobean-style house with beautiful gardens and a working water mill is only 50 minutes away from Biddenham. Originally the home of Lord Fairhaven it is now owned by the National Trust and is well worth a visit at this time of the year.
The woods are carpeted with cyclamen and the rainbow border of dahlias is stunning. The restaurant is open for a small range of snacks and drinks. Alternatively there is lots of space (114 acres) to picnic. There is plenty to look at in the plant centre and National Trust shop.
Additional hygiene and social distancing measures are in place and it is necessary to book a slot on line as visitor numbers are limited.
