What to see this summer

Make the most of the warmer, longer days by getting out and about at Lanhydrock. Here are some of our favourite walks and things to see, including some rather rare and wonderful wildlife you might spot. Sit amongst the flowers in the beautiful formal garden and herbaceous border, or enjoy some shade on a wander along the woodland walks.
