Magnificent late Victorian country house with gardens and wooded estate
Lanhydrock is the perfect country house and estate, with the feel of a wealthy but unpretentious family home.
After a devastating fire in 1881 the Jacobean house was refurbished in high-Victorian style, with the best in country house design and planning and the latest mod-cons.
Discover two sides of Victorian life: from the kitchens, nurseries and servants' quarters, which offer a thrilling glimpse into life 'below stairs', to the luxurious family areas, elegant dining room and spacious bedrooms which reveal the comforts of ‘upstairs’ living.
Make sure you take a stroll around the extensive gardens and enjoy their year-round colour. There are beautiful herbaceous borders, a fabulous formal parterre and colourful higher gardens filled with camellias, magnolias and rhododendrons.
The estate is well worth exploring too, with ancient woodlands and tranquil riverside paths. There are also off-road cycle trails, with special routes for families and novice riders, and you can even hire a bike from us to make the most of this opportunity.
Experience the heyday of the Agar-Robartes family, who made Lanhydrock their home, and discover how their fortunes changed during the First World War.
Find out more things to see and do on your day out.
In the gallery there's a new book exhibition revealing our connection to Henry VIII, and there are fast facts on display with information about the quirky items in our collection. On Mondays you'll see our conservation team in action, deep-cleaning and answering all your questions about how we care for Lanhydrock and its contents.
