My wife and I haven't been on bikes for years. We took our 6 year old and 2 year old out in the bike trails having hires the bike from NT. Had a great time. The organisation and equipment were excellent. Ten cafe is just next door so you can even get some extra energy before you go. Would really... More

Without a doubt this is one of the top National Trust properties in the UK. After a reasonable walk we waited in front of the house for the pre visit talk. We found it a bit too detailed but still a good introduction of what we were about to visit. The house was in great condition and really interesting.The gardens... More

If you are into period dramas then you will be transported into their world as you tour rooms which have been dressed to look as if the family and servants have just popped out for the day. You expect them to come back at any moment. This amazing house is both atmospheric and enchanting. With a little imagination you will... More

Enjoyed our visit. The guides were full of information without being intrusive. So many rooms to see my feet were beginning to ache. The gardens had both formal and informal planting and as the sun was shining we saw them at their best. Would highly recommend a visit but allow several hours to enjoy it all.

Step back in time ..... With a visit to this grand estate in Cornwall, you will appreciate the difference between life "upstairs" compared to the life of the servants "downstairs". The house is meticulously restored, and the gardens are gorgeous. It seems as if Lord Robartes and his family are lurking nearby. For me, the kitchens were the most interesting... More

Well worth a visit! Gorgeous. Does make you uneasy seeing how the rich and privileged lived compared to the poor. Grounds are vast and the gardens are beautiful. Tour guides are lovely and very helpful.

We spent a good full day at the Lanhydrock Estate today, starting with the bike trails and finishing with a visit to the house. We hired bikes and helmets for our family of four: 1 X 16" kids bike (frog bike), 1 X adult mountain and 1 X adult mountain with kids bike trailer hanging off the back. It cost... More

This is one of the finest National Trust properties to visit. very well maintained and a great deal of the house that is open to the public. The visit around the servants quarters and the kitchens is extremely informative, almost as if it was still being used to prepare the banquets and parties for the gentry upstairs. In the large...

Not much to see in the month of March since not many plants were blooming. Some very steep hill inclines which wasn't ideal for elderly or my Mum who's just had chemotherapy (no, the buggy shuttle service man wouldn't accept that to take her to the top car park.) This place certainly isn't disability friendly. Someone has said before -... More
