Lady Robartes' open day

The silver has been polished and the doors thrown open as Lady Mary Robartes welcomes you to view the best rooms of the house on her inaugural open day. Head to the front door for a warm welcome and a peek at the main rooms in which the family lived, dined and entertained. 


A new kitchen experience

Join us for a new experience in the Lanhydrock kitchen. A stand-alone route, the kitchen has a new entrance at the historic iron gate, once busy with deliveries to the hectic scullery. Wander through the newly-dressed rooms and learn about the efficient Victorian technology installed in the 1880s house refurbishment as well as how the staff prepared for a fashionable french dinner.
