Plas Newydd

National Trust Property in Llanddaniel Fab, near Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, Anglesey, Wales

In addition to visiting the Short Stack Lighthouse and Cliffs, we also went to Plas Newydd, another National Trust Property in Wales. Plas Newydd is considered a "country house" and parts of the house date back to the 1470s. The house sits on the Menai Strait and looks across at the Snowdonia Mountains. The house belonged to the Marquess of Anglesey who was awarded his title for bravery during the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 where he served under the Duke of Wellington and lost a leg. One of the main claims to fame of the house is the painting by Rex Whistler in the Dining Room.

That concludes our trip to Wales. I cannot wait to go back and explore other parts of Wales, particularly southern Wales. This was such a great trip!

Beautiful garden photos again, Lindsey! You’ve outdone yourself this time. And I love, love, love the Whistler paintings, especially the ones with the doggies. But I especially appreciate the picture you took of the very cluttered study, which gives me hope for my similarly messy house????. Keep ‘em coming! And hugs to Penny!
