Sunnycroft Houses

200 Holyhead Road


Share this

This substantial red-brick villa is typical of the many thousands that were built for the prosperous middle classes in the late Victorian period.

Sunnycroft is one of the very few villas to have survived, with a mini estate and largely unaltered contents and decoration.

There's lots to see and do at Sunnycroft; taking a turn through the house with one of our friendly guides is a must. Find out about the families who built, lived in and loved Sunnycroft, from a local brewer to an embroiderer for the Queen.

No afternoon visit to Sunnycroft is complete without inhaling the aroma of the medicine cabinet. Formerly used as a linen press, its jumble of over 300 medicines, remedies and toiletries are a further reminder that the Lander family didnt throw much away. And why should they?
