The garden front at Anglesey Abbey, Cambridgeshire.

A passion for tradition and impressing guests inspired one man to transform a run-down country house and desolate landscape.

At the age of 30, the future Lord Fairhaven began to create his first home. Wanting to inspire and surprise visitors, he created a spectacular garden with planting for all seasons and a cosy house in which to entertain. Life revolved around horse racing and shooting, and guests enjoyed 1930s luxury.

Inside, fine furnishings, books, paintings, silver and rare clocks give a feeling of opulence.

Outside, 46 hectares (114 acres) offer vibrant colour, delicious scents and the simple pleasures of nature.

Visit our Inspiration Station for family activities. Catch the chime of one of our 37 rare clocks. Transform yourself into a country gentleman with our dressing-up clothes. Be wowed by the Himalayan silver birches. Spot nature from the dizzy heights of our tree house. Unwind with a peaceful stroll through the glorious gardens.

Historic house or home, Industrial heritage site, Garden, parklands or rural site, Sacred space
