The day we visited it was very busy with German tourists who were in a great rush to get around. We held back as we were interested in reading about the place and taking in the surroundings of the house. This did spoil it a little bit for us. The grounds were great to walk around and the kids loved... More

A couple of years ago Lanhydrock was a pleasant place to visit with an ambience and atmosphere which evoked a spirit of history. It has now been transformed into a Theme Park to serve the needs of a minority of cyclists and others who have completely removed the previous spirit. The National Trust, of which I am a member, have... More

Lanhydrock House has to be the Jewel of the National Trust. An excellent house with the actual family treasures within the building left by the Robarte family.

The walks are brilliant and the snowdrops are all coming out, freedom to walk your dog, lovely area for children to play. It is a must to visit. Bit expensive to eat there, plenty of room for you to take a picnic. Brilliant for cycling.

Now we have discovered Lanhydrock, we usually visit at least once a week. We enjoy walking our dog around the numerous paths and trails there. We love the walk down by the River Fowey. This week we walked from the river up to the outer part of the arboretum (where dogs are allowed) and had a lovely surprise to see... More
