Scenes from Lanhydrock

From exploring the house, finding out about the previous owners and maybe even meeting a Victorian or two, to adventuring in the grounds, you're sure to find something to enjoy at Lanhydrock.

See a few of the things you might experience on a day here, and hear one too - the piano being played in the Jacobean gallery.

We think Lanhydrock's a really special place - come along and discover it for yourself.
