This was our 3rd visit to Lanhydrock house and every time has been interesting. It's a beautiful house, beautifully cared for and full of history. The coffee shop up by the house has the most amazing home made cakes and scones and we had something before we walked round the house. Since we visited last time they now have a... More

This house seems to be very well preserved with lots of friendly and helpful volunteers to discuss the treasures displayed. The surrounding gardens and parklands are a pleasure to meander thru. The facilities cater for all clients and there seems to be ample parking. Worth a visit.

An excellent example of showing a house as it operated in its prime. The National Trust brings this house alive through informative displays and supportive information sheets. This was supplemented with costumed interpreters. It was easy to get the feel of what living in a Victorian Country House was like. Well worth a visit

We were staying in the area on holiday so thought it was worth a visit - and it was very good. Started in the House which takes around an hour to navigate - especially liked the kitchen and the amazing gallery. Then had a sandwich and looked at the Church and higher gardens. Wish we had loaded our mountain bikes... More

This is excellent in our view. It is visually stunning, very well maintained, extensive and beautifully executed in terms of visitor experience. Well sign-posted from the beginning, and well serviced with cafes and loos. We spent most of our time in the house and I think we both felt it was one of the best NT / anything experiences we...

The tour of the house was very interesting - especially the children's rooms and kitchen. So much to see there that we didn't have time to look round the gardens. For the less able, there are gold buggies to take you to the house - but a pity they didn't go all the way to the car park.

Beautifully restored house, very interesting. The staff are extremely helpful and really know a lot about the history. Gardens are lovely, take the time to do the whole walk because it's really worth it.
