The great Lanhydrock house stands in extensive grounds (360 hectares or 890 acres) way above the River Fowey... It has been owned and managed by the National Trust since 1953. Much of the present house dates back to Victorian times but some sections date from the 1620's. It is a Grade I listed building and is set in gardens with... More

I love this place and go regularly to walk my dogs around the estate and woods. Dogs aren't allowed in the gardens. It is one of my favourite places and is particularly beautiful in the spring when the azaleas and then the bluebells are in flower. Stunning. I never get tired of visiting the house, it does all get very... More

We could have spent all day here, but due to time limitations we managed to cram in a very enjoyable 3 hours. What an amazing property! Lots of people to answer questions and provide loads of information. Well worth the visit and we would definitely go back if we return to the area.

As full NT members, we have visited and enjoyed many properties. During our Xmas stay in Bodmin, we visited Lanhydrock and thoroughly enjoyed the time there. The grounds are huge and suitably cared for, with the christmas display in the inner garden particularly attractive - trees shaped like the wine in a glass were intriguing! The interior had been decorated... More

Lovely place for a stroll. The house is nice but we were disappointed that not many rooms were open, it did not say that before we got our tickets. Staff all very friendly and enthusiastic.

We visited just after Christmas and the rooms we laid out in a festive manner. Parking was easy and the walk to the house no problem. A couple of our older relatives took the shuttle bus. From the gatehouse to the gardens this is a very good two or three hours. I imagine it is great when the gardens are... More

We visited at Christmas and several of the rooms had a Victorian Christmas theme which was very interesting. We parked at the lower car park near the bridge and walked through the woods to the house. We also ate at the restaurant which served local Cornish pasties.
