This summer at Lanhydrock

Family visiting Lanhydrock

Make the most of the colourful garden and wide open green spaces this summer at Lanhydrock.

Peaceful strolls

Enjoy a peaceful stroll for a sense of stillness and to hear the birds chattering away. Wander through the dappled shade of the woodland, take a moment at the garden sundial and watch the bees in the herbaceous borders.
Download this map and bring it with you to find the perfect spots for lazy days and summer strolls. 


Bring a picnic

Pick a quiet spot to lay down the rug. Bring your hamper and enjoy a traditional picnic in the parkland. The Park Cafe is now open for takeaway snacks and hot and cold drinks. We hope you enjoy the tranquil moments to be had on lazy days, all we ask is you take any rubbish home with you.


Admire the view

Walk a few minutes and to your delight you’re at that view that seemed so distant only a while ago. Stay late in the afternoon and wander off the beaten track to areas you may have missed before, to see the sun dappling shadows over the formal gardens creating a particularly special place to admire Lanhydrock, a place of picture-perfect views.

Try a midweek visit

We know some of you like a more peaceful visit. We’re busiest at weekends, so if you’re looking for a quieter day out, why not visit during the week if you can?

Please book ahead before visiting

The garden and limited house route at Lanhydrock are open. We've introduced advanced booking to keep everyone safe and maintain social distancing. To avoid disappointment, please book in advance especially at busy times such as bank holidays and weekends. However, where space is available pre-booking may not always be necessary. If you do not book, we cannot guarantee admission. Members can book for free, while non-members will need to pay when booking. We'll be releasing tickets every Friday and you will need to book by 3pm the day before your visit.
