The most memorable and enjoyable day of our trip for me was definitely visiting Plas Newydd mansion and gardens. We couldn’t go into the house due to COVID restrictions, but we were more than happy to just wander around the vast grounds due to how beautiful it was and the great weather. We primarily went there to see the Red Squirrels as well. Living in middle of England B and I had not seen a wild Red Squirrel in many years! The last time I saw a wild one was as a child, and we both had seen them in a caged sanctuary in Norfolk a few years ago. We always see the big Grey Squirrels, which are cute but are sadly an invasive species that have caused a decline in our lovely Red Squirrels. So it was fantastic to see the Red Squirrels thriving on Anglesey at Plas Newydd. The house is situated on the bank next to the Menai Strait, with great views of the water. It is very grand, dating back to the late 1400s, and is surrounded by carefully designed gardens filled with flowers, pristine lawns, and woodland. It is now owned by the National Trust.
All in all, a memorable day. 🙂
