Reliably good , well cooked fresh food. Sit down restaurant with reasonably priced options, and a snack and drink café in the stables. Relaxed, friendly helpful service. Recommend the Homity Pie

Interesting National Trust House with gardens set in an area of park land. Since last visit several years ago there is a new car park some distance away. There was a buggy service for prams, wheelchairs, and others from the car park to the House and gardens. The interpretation of the house was very good and the room stewards knowledgeable.

Though a good walk from the 'chalky when wet' car park, the house and its interpretation was well presented and made a fascinating afternoon visit!

As a family regularly visiting Cornwall over the past years and always staying fairly close by, we have only just got around to visiting Lanhydrock house. On checking the website we planned on eating here soon after our arrival just before noon, however the restaurant in the main car park was packed and because it was raining we couldn't eat... More

This is a lovely place to visit. The house was closed the day we visited, but it was a beautiful sunny November day and the grounds and gardens are extensive so there is a lot to see and plenty of walks to explore.

Been there four times now and I love it everytime! The house is interesting and is well looked after! It is like stepping into the set if downton abbey. Our most recent visit we saw their new cafe, play park, and bike hire really impressed to see the national trust providing something new, updating and keeping the whole day interesting... More

There is plenty of places to explore and walk around the grounds and with the exception of the gardens it is free of charge and is well worth walking... More

Ohhhhhh, beautiful Lanhydrock absolutely stole my heart. Of all the many castles, palaces, and mansions we saw in the UK, hubby says I talk about this the most. And to think we almost missed it since wind and rain lashed at us as we exited our car at the free car park that was several steps from the entrance. I'm... More

After checking in your pram, they give you a sling/carrier for your baby. The house looks just like the family has popped out for tea, do much effort put into authenticity. Genuinely fascinating.

One of the best National Trust properties we thought. It can be a long walk from the car park, but there is transport available.
