The house is great though very focussed on 1900 - 1918. I understand why because of how it was acquired but theres 500 years of post catholic history plus the whole reformation period that is "lost". Still fab. The restaurant is also excellent for lunch. 6 of us ate there and were very happy with our choices. The staff were... More

It's a beautiful house, the gardens are also fantastic. The balance of bike riders and pedestrians is reasonable but the car park clearly caters for the bike riders as it is a reasonable walk on foot to the house from there. Fine for most people, we knew bringing the pushchair for our 3 year old was a sensible decision. The... More

We are national trust members, so didnt have to pay but with the recent improvements this is a great day out for all ages. Since we visited last year, they have added a bike hire facility, a cafe at the car park as its quite a walk down to the house and gardens, an adventure play ground and a plant... More

Visiting on a hot July day on our way to Joshua's Cottage in St Ives, the superb gardens were at their magnificent peak. After the reception area and toilets, you stroll along to the ticket office, where you can walk on to the house and gardens, or take a stretched golf buggy (small fee) to the entrance. There is a...

I have just returned from a week’s holiday in Cornwall, with my wife and 4 yr. old daughter. I am about to post a number of reviews of the restaurants, cafes and attractions we have visited and or experienced. I have to say at the outset that there is a plethora of things to do and there is no doubt... More

It was raining when we visited so we didn't get to explore the woods or gardens but what a wonderful house. It felt very homely. The history of the house and family were presented in a really interesting way. We really loved it, so much to look at. There was a piano in the gallery and musical members of the... More

This must be the jewel in the crown of the National Trust. The house is presented in period style, with authentic decor, furnishings, and even smells. The private church in the grounds is charming, and still working as a parish church. Great atmosphere. Lovely gardens, walks, and bike hire for cycle routes. Great day out for young, old, athletic, or... More

We were so impressed with Lanhydrock when we visited the first time around 15 years ago that we became National trust members there and then and have been ever since. Back in Cornwall for a few days we couldn't resist a return visit to see if it was still as good, I am happy to say that it is, there... More
