These gardens are absolutely beautiful, from the wonderfully manicured trees to the lovely herbaceous borders there is so much to see. We visited during the last week of September and there was so much colour and it seemed there was more to come. The walks along well laid paths can be a bit on the steep side in parts but there are lots of seats along the way and it's well worth the effort to take in the stunning views of the gardens, house and surrounding countryside. There is evidence all around of the care that is bestowed on these gardens, it must be a joy to work here and see the seasons through this captivating place, I wish we lived nearer!! As you walk around you will also come upon some very interesting artwork which gives another aspect to gardening which we liked.
Unfortunately we didn't visit the house which looked really impressive so can't comment on it but if we return we will take it in.
As with all NT properties the tea room offers hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, light lunches and of course delicious cakes. Take time to rest either inside or on a nice day outside in the courtyard before continuing your journey around the garden. There is also a rather nice restaurant opposite the tearoom which sells rather more substantial meals but unfortunately for us they had run out of several things, maybe we should have dragged ourselves away from the garden and made our way there a bit earlier, never mind our cakes were lovely.
If you love gardens you really won't be disappointed with Lanhydrock, and I'm sure whatever season you visit there will be lots of interesting things to see, enjoy!!
