Took my son and had a walk round the gardens. He really enjoyed it loved the flowers, he said the flowers were very pretty. Lots of walks to do from short to long ones. Definitely going back.

This is a wonderful day out, the house is presented as if the owners had just left the room, with a really family atmosphere. The kitchens are fantastic. Lots of space in the parkland and bikes to rent.

Very well thought out visitor route in the house. Brought the house to life with attention to detail. The house unlike other similar attractions did not feel like you had to tiptoe around being careful not to touch anything. It felt like you were swept back to the turn of the 20th Century and the family had nipped out and... More

We have a wonderful day at Lanhydrock during our summer holiday in Cornwall. Plenty to keep the children amused from the new outdoor play area to the trails around the house. It is one of the best National Trust properties I have been to and has been updated with new cycle trails and a new cafe recently. The gardens were... More

Visited the house and gardens on a rainy day which was a bit of a shame as we didn't get to do the cycle tracks and gardens, also unfortunately missed visiting the church. The house is amazing and it is unbelievable that a family kept all of their things for all these years!!! The guides were really helpful and knowledgable.... More

We had a trip to Lanhydrock. The house is stunning from the outside. We didn't go inside as you cannot take photos and that was the real purpose of our visit. The grounds are amazing and the garden is spectacular. Full of colour and so accessible.There is a Church in the grounds and it is so pretty. Nothing to do... More

Fantastic place to visit, stayed nearly all day, well worth going to see. There was something for everyone, great walks in the woods, flower beds and borders as well as the house itself.

This was recommended as a must see in Cornwall & it is - from the minute you go through the gatehouse -listen to the volunteer guide who will spend 15 mins giving you a brief history of the family who lived here. That positions the rest of the visit -spend a £1 on the brief room guide & this helps... More

This is a really great national trust property, huge house over 3 floors, lovely grounds, nice shop, cafe in what looks like the old stables, with icecream shop on the side, used book shop, little church/chapel, with a great looking new cafe and adventure playground closer to car parking along with bike hire (expensive i thought), really worth visiting.

Lanhydrock is a house and garden with so many stories to tell. These stories bring the house to life and enable the casual visitor to become totally absorbed in this complete Victorian treasure. The house was substantially rebuilt following a major fire at the end of the 19th c. when the opportunity was taken to incorporate the latest ideas in... More
