Acres of beautiful parkland
Buried in the seclusion of the densely wooded Fowey valley and surrounded by hundreds of acres of beautiful parkland, Lanhydrock is eventually sighted after a good downhill walk through the attractive grounds. Lanhydrock is one of the most fascinating and complete late 19th-century houses in England and as you would expect, it is full of period atmosphere.
The gatehouse and north wing with a magnificent 32yd-long gallery with plaster ceiling have survived from the 17th century, however, the rest of the house was rebuilt following a disastrous fire in 1881.
The garden has a stunning collection of magnolias, rhododendrons and camellias, and offers fine colours right through into the autumn. All this is set in a glorious estate of 900 acres of woods and parkland running down to the enchanting River Fowey, with an extensive network of winding footpaths.
