Come and explore the Lanhydrock garden in winter, the perfect time to learn all about the feathered residents and tick off some entries on your 50 Things list.

Ranger Day – Hazel Coppicing

Sun 19 Jan, 10am – 3.30pm
Come and burn off some holiday food by helping the ranger team to coppice hazel in the Lanhydrock woodland. Take home everything you cut! Wear warm clothing and sturdy footwear.
Booking is advisable on 03442491895 or through our events page. Bring a packed lunch!

Winter estate walks

If exploring at a slower pace sounds more appealing, there are winter estate walks on the third Thursday of every month, at 2pm, leaving from Reception. Join one of our friendly volunteer guides to discover more about the history of the historic estate and parkland. You can find more information on our events page here. If you prefer to stroll at your own pace then try out one of our three circular walks, with guide leaflets available for a donation from the Park Café.
