Antony House & Gardens

About us

Superb early 18th-century mansion set in parkland and fine gardens
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.

The Woodland Garden, owned and run by the Carew Pole Garden Trust, has outstanding rhododendrons, azaleas, magnolias and camellias.

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