Garden explorer trail
The Lanhydrock garden is full of hidden details to discover, a glorious mix of history and nature in the early summer sunshine.
A quick seeker's trail through the Lanhydrock garden
This walk follows the accessible route through the garden, on hard paths. Steps are optional but can be avoided.
How hot is 'blood heat'? What is the hottest temperature the Lanhydrock thermometer can measure?
Can you find where Spot lived? What kind of animal do you think Spot was? Would you be comfortable living here?
Can you find the oldest part of the house? How many years ago was this doorway carved? Can you think of anything that is older?
The parterre is laid out in very precise shapes. How many are there? Can you name them? Do you think the parterre is symmetrical?
Stop and look around you. How many colours can you see? Can you name them all?
Where can you find the time and the seasons in the same place? Do you recognise any of the bronze flowers?
The Thatched Cottage had no running water. Can you imagine living with no taps, no bath and no shower? Can you find where the gardener collected his water from?
One hundred years ago there was a glasshouse here in the higher garden. Can you work out where it used to stand?
