Well worth a trip to visit this lovely NT property. Surprisingly large inside, loads to see and a very interesting history. Nice NT shop and tea rooms. If you have time, take a walk up into the woods above the house or down to the river. Lovely autumn colours when we were there in late September and I imagine there is always some colour to see whatever time of the year you visit.

As a real Downton Abbey fan who has a real fascination with the upstairs/downstairs life of family and servants - Lanhydrock House was perfect for me. There are just so many rooms to see, very few seem to be shut off - which is a bonus to me as I am always intrigued to know what is going on in the rooms I missed and what part of the life of the house have I dipped out of! All the rooms were very well presented and the information given was so informative and relevant and you could really get a feel of how life used to be in the house. The house also flows well and the rooms link together well which does not always happen so you could follow the daily life in the house. All the guides and staff were informative and knowledgeable and really friendly and did all they could to make sure you knew all you wanted to know. We were so impressed at how well the information was given on the printed material - even the notices blended rather than spoiling the appearance of the rooms etc. The grounds were lovely and there is so much to do you can easily spend a day exploring and enjoying both the inside and out. We look forward to going back very soon - a most enjoyable and pleasant day - a really great venue very well maintained and displayed. A great place to take children to make history come alive and feel part of it all - very educational in an interesting way. We cannot recommend it enough.

Visited Lanhydrock with my wife at the beginning of October 13.
Unfortunately the gardens were past their best, our fault not the gardens, should have gone earlier. Even so they were lovely so well kept
The house itself was marvellous. The way it was created you felt you had stepped back in time with the residents. It was arranged very personal. The kitchens were well a visit on their own.
Facilities for food and drink were very good.
One slight comment was some of the volunteers were dressed in period costume whereas others were not which was a pity
Also very difficult for people with mobility issues as there are a lot of stairs

This house is one of the few NT properties that is accessible to those with mobility problems, such a treat. There is a lift so upstairs is easily reached.

This is a must if you are wanting an interesting and educational enjoyable day out. I loved seeing the downstairs, the kitchens were amazing, the servants quarters, everything in place as if the staff were in the house. You could easily imagine how their days were filled, see the food they ate in their lunches and dinners. The bedrooms upstairs are beautifully kept, members of staff from The National Trust are in each room happy to give you further information. Then there is the gardens, absoluely stunning, we listened to the talk in the grounds which I would recommend.
A lovely morning spent here, and you can have lunch, afternoon tea or just a snack.
