Garden

“An awe-inspiring Victorian country house, Lanhydrock was mostly reconstructed following a fire in 1881. There are elements from the building that had stood here since the 1620s, like the 35-metre Long Gallery (see the Steinway piano and plasterwork on the ceiling), the front porch and the gatehouse. One of many reasons to fall in love with Lanhydrock is in the contrast between “Upstairs and Downstairs”, where you can browse the preserved kitchens and servants’ quarters, as well as well as the grander family home and its tasteful dining room and bedrooms. The estate covers 1,000 acres, with landscaped parkland, woods and paths beside streams and the River Fowey. You may be caught off guard by the heartrending views of the valley landscape. In spring the garden is awash with the blooms of cream and white magnolias, numbering 120 different species. ”
