One of the most visited properties in the area, Lanhydrock draws visitors from far and wide to walk around the grand house and grounds. The great house stands in extensive grounds of 890 acres above the River Fowey and 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 back to the 1620s. It is a Grade I listed building and is set in beautiful gardens, planted with a fine selection of shrubs and trees.
As well as walking around the house and reading about the history of the family that used to live there, there is plenty of stunning land to discover too. From epic treks to casual rambles there are hidden treasures to discover on a range of walks for all abilities on the Lanhydrock estate. The estate is also home to a number of cycling trails, perfect for the whole family to enjoy and they’re great for dog walking as well. Stop off at the cafe for light refreshments or for a full blown cream tea after your ride and browse a selection and gifts and plants available for purchase in the plant centre.
