Group admission prices
Normal admission charges apply to groups comprising 14 people or fewer, or when group members pay individually.

Accessibility at Lanhydrock
Please note that visitors arriving by coach will have to negotiate three flights of shallow steps in order to exit and access the coach park. If wheelchair access is required, it’s essential that this is booked in advance.
If a member of your party requires a mobility scooter for the course of your visit, this will also need to be requested prior to your arrival.
Looking for somewhere to get a bite to eat and a drink while you’re at Lanhydrock? Options include The Park Café opposite the coach park, and The Stables tea-room next to the house.
In addition to the aforementioned options, there are picnic benches dotted around the estate – ideal for an al fresco snack or drink.
Who is eligible for free entry?
Registered tourist board guides (on production of a valid badge), coach drivers and tour leaders escorting groups of 15 or more. National Trust members also receive free entry, so it is at your discretion whether to refund the entrance fee to members if you have included it in your package – this is not refunded by the National Trust.
Members must bring their current membership cards with them to avoid paying the full group rate. If any of your group would like to join the National Trust please direct them to our Membership page or call 0344 800 1895.
