3 Routes

Lanhydrock house is split into 3 routes; Kitchen, Family and Lady R's Bazaar. Our welcome leaflet and Welcome Assistants will help guide you through the routes.

Please be aware that last entry to the house is 30 minutes before closing.

Kitchen - The hidden workforce

These rooms were created after the devastating fire of 1881 which started in the kitchen; the number and size of the rooms was built to impress.

Family - From toys to travels

The nursery rooms were added after the fire to provide a self-contained part of the house for the children; on the ground floor are more adult spaces for relaxation, games and estate business.

Lady R's Bazaar

Lord and Lady Robartes performed the opening ceremony and the gallery and some parts of the house were thrown open. Many took the opportunity to inspect the art and other treasures of the mansion.
