Beautifully presented old house with lots of atmosphere and great snippets/anedotes from the family that donated it to the National Trust. Really interesting to hear about their lives but would've liked a bit more history on what the house was like before. Fabulous grounds, brilliant cafe and kids play area and the most beautiful bluebells. Best National Trust house I've... More

While in Cornwall, we recently visited Lanhydrock House & Park near Bodmin. Some of the building dates from the 1620s and the impressive main gatehouse dates from the mid-17th century. Unfortunately, severe fire damage occurred in 1881 but excellent restoration of damaged areas was in the original Victorian style. The House gives the impression of being quite large but "unpretentiously... More

All the rooms give you a snapshot from the past. Lots of content, especially in the library and kitchens. Plenty of staff in costume to answer your questions and explain how the house and family lived and worked. The gardens were a picture of azaleas and rhododendroms in full bloom.

We called in as an ideal spot to break a journey to Marazion. After tea and cake in the new visitor centre we walked down to the gardens around the house. There were plenty of spring flowers to see especially in the higher gardens. We then walked through the woods with bluebells in flower down to the River Fowey. We... More

We enjoyed a full day at this attraction, with weather quite good. The house is very full of lots to see with guides quick to help. Lunch was lovely and tasty and good value. The grounds were also large and plenty of places to see down to the river. Took lots of photos of flowers and shrubs near the house.... More

Obviously, the National Trust know a thing or two about stately homes and gardens but under its careful stewardship, Lanhydrock has become a historical attraction with twenty-first century appeal; there is plenty to see, a choice of three locations to eat and drink, approachable and knowledgeable guides and an overall presentation that brings the whole place back to life.

We are NT members and visit lots of NT properties – this is one of the better ones. Here NT has brought the place to life – you can really see how the other half lived in the early 20th century. Some NT staff are in period costume for effect - and notes, letters, quotes abound to put you right... More

The woodland walk in May among dozens of different rhododendrons and camellias was perfect. The formal gardens are pretty and very well kept, and the summer borders will be spectacular. The house is a typical National Trust place, pickled history, but interesting.

We'd never been here before and didn't allow ourselves enough time to explore all the grounds so we will definitely be going back , there was so much to see the house and gardens are beautiful. The cafe and children's play area were a unexpected bonus also if your feeling adventurous you are able to hire bikes

The house was wonderful, lots of rooms to look in and the trail kept the kids entertained throughout. The gardens were lovely. We got to the house quite late in the day so we didn't get to explore the whole of the grounds but would love to visit again and bring a picnic. They play area was a big hit... More
