Antony House (National Trust)


Faced in silver-grey Pentewan stone and flanked by colonnaded wings of mellow brick, this classically beautiful house is a beguiling mixture of the formal and informal. Still the home of the Carew Pole family, it contains fine collections of paintings, furniture and textiles.

The grounds bordering the Lynher estuary, landscaped by Repton, include a formal garden with topiary, a knot garden, modern sculptures and the National Collection of Daylilies.

Antony was used as the film set for Walt Disney's Alice in Wonderland, directed by Tim Burton.

You can create stories inspired by our magical landscape; soak up the unique atmosphere of a family home; hunt for the modern sculpture installed throughout the gardens; smell the delicious sea air and seasonal plant scents; sit on the terrace and enjoy breathtaking river views; explore the welcoming wide-open spaces.

Facilities include the souvenir and gift shop, tea-room serving refreshments, cakes and light lunches, free parking 120 yards away, toilet facilities.
