Family fun

If you're looking for something fun to do this summer, make sure you come to Lanhydrock.

We have a bat patrol (if you're not afraid of the dark), dilly cart racing, bluebell walk and garden trails in the school holiday.

This winter at Lanhydrock we discovered a book in our collection that once belonged to Henry VIII. It was used to help him annul his marriage to Catherine of Aragon so he could marry Anne Boleyn and is on display in the gallery now.

This Saturday

Join our weekly parkrun around Lanhydrock's estate every Saturday morning at 9am.

It's not a race, but a timed 5k run, and open to everyone.


Hiring a cycle at Lanhydrock cycle hire

The cycle trails are open all year, and there's no better time to explore the new 10km of off road cycle tracks. A perfect escape for new and experienced cyclists. No bike? No matter, the bike hire is open everyday 10am-4pm. 

Summer colour

Dahlias flowering in the herbaceous border

The garden at Lanhydrock is bursting into summer colour. Look our for striking Dahlia Knockout in the herbaceous borders and breathe in the scent of our Rose Bright Smiles, which fills the air in the formal garden.
