Decided to make a stop at Lanhydrock House on our way back home. Wow what a find. The house - all 52 rooms open to view, is a treasure. The whole place house and gardens are so clean and tidy. House was full of interesting items - all well documented so that you knew exactly what you were looking at.... More

Did the weekly 5k ParkRun around the grounds which was really tough due to the steep hills but such a gorgeous location it was well worth it!

I had read reviews about Lanhydrock stating that it was a "don't miss" and in this case everything said about it is true! It definitely is a Must-see. One of the best of the National Trust. As you walk through the many rooms you become transported into the past and feel like an invited guest into a close friend's home... More

The nursery is filled with children's games and clothes and dolls and toys; the amazing Victorian... More

So much to see, the house was amazing with so much interest, fascinating how upstairs and downstairs lived! It was my husbands first trip to national trust and what a good one to get him started. The gardens were varied in themes, which were both immaculate and stunning. I will be back.

This was our first visit and it will definitely not be the last. The walk from the car park down to the house lets you enjoy the view of the house and entrance. This is a venue where you get really close to reality and can go from room to room and feel yourself transformed to Victorian times. After the... More

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
