Things to do at the Lanhydrock House National Trust review
Lanhydrock House is an early 19th Century stately home with fine interiors set in scenic parkland near Bodmin in Cornwall. The parkland is popular with cyclists.
There are plenty of cycling trails at Lanhydrock to suit all levels of experience. You can choose to ride through woodland or on the flat or even on hillier routes. You can download maps from the National Trust website before you visit. There is a cycle hire shop, do ring ahead to check it is open.
The Lanhydrock estate isn’t just for cyclists. There’s plenty of opportunities to go for a walk and explore the grounds. There is a range of walks to suit all. There are over 900 acres of historic countryside to explore including a Victorian swimming pool which is now more for newts than humans.
There is also a relatively new wooden play area with plenty to climb and play on. You can also look around the house when it is open. The house is very child friendly with discovery tables. Plus a train trail around the rooms, a school room to play in, tables to set and serviettes to fold in the dining room and a selection of Victorian toys to play with.
