Get creative on Lanhydrock's estate
Lanhydrock estate covers 1,000 acres, with parkland, woods and riverside paths. Guides of the many walks to explore are available in reception, at the gatehouse or the shop. Wildlife spotters will be in their element here. With plenty of flora and fauna to discover, from flowers to fungi and bugs to bats, there's something for everyone to see and do.
Autumn and winter are super times for taking photographs. The low sunshine strikes beautifully through branches and glints off grasses all over the estate for fabulous scenic shots, and we've lots of photogenic robins and feisty pheasants in the grounds.

Leaf your mark
Do a bit of tree spotting on your walk around the estate and see how many different types of leaves you can find. You can collect fallen leaves to create your own wild art or make a leaf crown if you're feeling crafty. We'd love to see your creations, so please share any art you make on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram feeds.
We leave fallen branches and trees in situ to create habitats for insects on the estate and these also make a wonderful breeding ground for fungi. See how many different varieties you can find on your walk.
