Garden Historic Site
Widely regarded as one of the finest houses in Cornwall, Lanhydrock House and Garden is a late-Victorian estate featuring extensive servants’ quarters, sprawling green lawns, gardens, and thickly wooded areas. A fine example of a wealthy but unpretentious Victorian family home, the site’s kitchens offer a rare glimpse into the fascinating life "below stairs." Conversely, the large dining rooms and luxurious bedrooms introduce visitors to the elegant lifestyle once enjoyed by the Agar-Robartes family, the mansion’s former owners. Over 20,000 items are on display here, including original art and furniture. Explore over 50 rooms open to the public, and be sure to visit the site’s museum and secondhand bookshop.

  • What a stunning place to visit plus if you like mountain biking then this place has lots of great routes of verying difficulty for all the family .
  • Love it here, we brought our toddler daughter and she loved exploring the gardens, absolutely beautiful. It is a nightmare with a pushchair as you aren't allowed to take it around the house but fully enjoyable if you go prepared!
  • lovely gardens and a very interesting house, a bit too many visitors to take it all in at a leisurely pace, but still worth the visit. One of the nicest houses on the NT membership.
  • I really did not want to star a 3 as the place is wonderful and we enjoyed it but i found some of the staff to be very rude i know they are doing there job by asking folks to put there bag in a locked storage as due to narrow hallways but i felt like i was being told off by the headmaster at school,and i did not feel right leaving my bag and just found the staff being rude to us ,so if you do plan on going i would advise you to leave any rucksacks or big bags in the car if you don't feel right leaving it with them.
  • Beautiful house great gardens well worth a visit
