Lanhydrock, owned and run by the National Trust since 1953, is one of the most fascinating late 19th century houses in England. Originally built around 1634, Lanhydrock was re-modeled in 1857 and almost re-built yet again, after a fire almost totally destroyed it in 1881.

Lanhydrock is the National Trusts largest property, standing in 900 acres of woodland and parkland, including its formal gardens, with 50 rooms throughout the house on view to the public.

The woodland area, with its network of pathways, is home to numerous ancient trees, Beech, Oak and Sycamore, some dating back as far as 1634. Springtime also sees an abundance of Rhododendrons, Camellias, Magnolias, bulbs and wild flowers and following the famous avenue of Sycamore and Beech will bring you down to the River Fowey.

The formal gardens around the house are set to lawn, with herbaceous borders ablaze with colour from roses and bedding plants during the summer months. Also to be seen around the house is the magnificent Yew Tree topiary.
