A definite must see in Cornwall! Beautiful house and stunning gardens with lovely country walks.

We have lived in Cornwall all our lives but we are ashamed to say we have only just visited Lanhydrock for the first time this weekend! We are now asking ourselves why did we leave it so long! The gardens are immaculately kept and full of colour (stunning display of tulips) with a wide variety of plants, trees and shrubs... More

This was the second time that we had visited this attraction (previously about five years ago) and we weren't disappointed. This really is an exceptional place and well worth visiting. We started by walking around the grounds (the property has over 900 acres) and the rhododendrons, azelias and camellias were stunning - both in quantity, size and the many varied... More

Wow, this has to be in my top ten National Trust properties and over the years I've visited many. The house has to be the most complete I've seen and the story of the staff and the family makes it even more interesting than most. With over 50 rooms it takes some beating. Unfortunately the heavens opened so we didn't... More

What a delight, so much to see in wonderful parklands and gardens. The house is amazing and beautifully presented. It is quite costly to get in but it really is a whole day trip so well worth it. We were lucky enough to be entertained by another visitor playing the Steinway piano beautifully, thank you! Knowledgeable helpers and so much... More

This is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, National trust property I've visited. It's huge! Approximately 50 rooms open to the public. The rooms are well stocked and really show how the 'other half' lived in bygone days. The staff are friendly and willing to talk about the house and contents, we had four 'unanswerable questions' but the... More

The house is a rambling Victorian mansion and NT have presented in a really exciting way displaying both the upstairs and downstairs life. We were particularly impressed by the kitchen and the many ancillary kitchens that supplied the house with its daily requirements. The servants quarters, and rooms such as the livery room give an insightful view to the working... More

We were lucky to visit on a beautiful sunny spring day. Blue skies and not a cloud to be seen. A truly wonderful location, beautiful house and attractive gardens. Lots of tulips as one person mentioned, but hey it's still only April, the daffodils have finished and it's still rather early for the summer flowers to be in bloom. You... More

My first visit to Lanhydrock and went as a NT member. Huge grounds and as well as the walk to the house, you can hire a bicycle and cycle up the various cycle trails. The walk to the house is lovely, and is downhill all the way. If you don't like walking uphill, I'd suggest walking down to the house,... More

The gardens are the most beautiful you will ever see. They often have activities for children so keep an eye open for those. The onsite cafe is welcoming and well priced.
