Bodorgan 460

Anglesey, Wales

Brief Description

The current site consists of a late-18th-century country house with later additions, on a coastal site with magnificent views. Formal terraces and the substantial remains of a walled kitchen garden date from the mid-19th century. There are areas of woodland and a deer park that is still in use.

History

In medieval times Bodorgan was an estate of the bishops of Bangor and in the 16th century became demesne land of the Meyrick family. A Tudor house and probable 17th-century formal gardens were destroyed to make way for the present house in the late-18th century. In the mid-19th century there was a further period of building, and formal terraces and a kitchen garden were added.
