Visited with my husband, parents and 3 month old baby. When we arrived it was pouring with rain so headed off towards the house at a fast pace! We passed a young girl who worked for National Trust who told us about the site and where things were located. Once we made it over the flooded road, and passed another... More

Leave yourself plenty of time if you are planning to visit as there's so much to see and do. The extensive parkland and woods, the formal gardens, the house, the shop, restaurant and cafe will all take much longer than you think as they are all fascinating. There's bike hire, play parks and walks for the energetic, golf buggy shuttles... More

Lanhydrock House has a wealth of history. Now open to the public, it is much as it was in the late 19th century. The gardens are very attractive, even for somebody like myself who is not much of a visitor to that kind of attraction. The church on the estate, virtually next door to the house, is also charming. Well... More

Called yesterday for lunch - new cafe now open by the car park wiith an excellent choice of hot & cold food. I had sausage & mash (first time in years) complete with caramelised onions & good gravy. Never got down to the house as it was raining heavily but the cafe is worth visiting anyway.

Today we visited the house and gardens, the house was fascinating to walk round and the information was very informative, I was very impressed with this and thought the kitchen was amazing. The gardens and the church were lovely. The cafe was very good and not over priced, the toilets were all kept clean and all the staff were helpful... More

Beware if using a GPS to get there. Ours took us down a gravel road that was just like a creek bed. Should have known to back up right away rather than continue looking for a place to turn around farther down the trail. Can't believe the hard time we had finding this great place. When we finally got there... More

On holiday in Cornwall and came across adveret for this National Trust venue. Have dithered for years as to whether or not to join National Trust. I took plunge and spent £95.50 for the two of us, immediately saving about £24 on our entry to Lanhydrock - not that I am tight - but I am careful and can count.... More

We visited Lanhydrock on our recent holiday to Cornwall and it now has an updated visitors reception at the top of the park. There is a place to hire bikes for a few hours or a whole day, and clearly marked cycle routes around the Lanhydrock estate. There is also a new cafe which should ease some of the pressure... More
