The staff & volunteers were all extremely kind and helpful. There were so many rooms I genuinely lost my sense of direction walking round! The setting is interesting, the house almost feels like it's been cut into the side of a hill with colourful shrubs, bushes & trees softening the whole effect. The only slight problem is that the courtyard... More

The National Trust own many wonderful properties across the country and we always try to make use of our membership when on holiday. My wife and I had visited Lanhydrock a number of years ago when out of season and only the kitchen area was open (and I think I may have visited as a boy 30 odd years ago)... More

Lanhydrock house is a lovely day out and would recommend it to anyone. The hose is very well kept and the gardens are beautiful.

This is an excellent example of an aristocratic family house from yesteryear showing not only how 'the family' lived but also the lives of the servants. The amount of pantries and food preparation rooms gives a really good insight into the style in which 'the family' lived and although it was said that the servants in this household were well...

a truly impressive building, both inside and out. They advise at least an hour for a tour, but I suggest at least two hours if you want to take everything in. It is quite a long walk from the car park to the house and back, but there are caddies for those who find the walk trying. There are 10... More

The attention to detail and presentation of this time capsule are superb and the location and setting simply stunning. It will be difficult to unseat this as one of my all time National Trust favourites for stepping back in time. We actually only stumbled upon it as a break on our journey to Cornwall and it created a great launch... More

We arrived at 11am and were just in time to join the garden guided tour that was starting - we are really pleased we did this as we learned so much about the house and gardens history, and stories about some of the plants, that we would never have known! The guide was really knowledgeable and we particularly enjoyed seeing... More

Just made one of several annual visits to Lanhydrock to see the magnolias, they are lovely now and promise to get even better over the coming weeks as more come out. Recommend the cakes too and the Homity Pie

I have visited this property several times in the past and was looking forward to seeing the famous the Henry 8th book. I was shocked to be told at the Reception building 'to shut the door as they get cold'. How about a hello or welcome or how are you, etc. Then as i entered house was told to swing... More
