Lanhydrock, National Trust in Cornwall
This blog post is all about my visit to Lanhydrock. Lanhydrock is a country house and estate located near Bodmin in Cornwall.
I had never visited Lanhydrock before and it seemed like the perfect thing to do on a drizzly day. You can explore the massive wealthy Jacobean house as well as its grounds and keep semi-dry! As you approach the house it takes your breath away and immediately makes you feel like you have travelled back in time. The grounds have a cafe and restaurant which we had a vegetable curry and sausage stew. I highly recommend going into the restaurant rather than paying £4.50 for a pasty from the cafe!
Rooms of interest
My favourite rooms in the house was the Kitchen and the Gallery. A lovely touch the National Trust added to the gallery was having a harpist. The harpist instantly transported you back and made you feel very calm and soothed. It was lovely to watch her play as I have never seen this before.
National Trust membership
I bought a National Trust card back in May, as I am 21 it only costs me £32. The membership has already paid itself off with my visit to
Lanhydrock, St Michael’s Mount and lots of local beach car parks which I visit frequently. If you would like to look into getting a National Trust card, which I highly recommend doing so, I will leave a link here.
I will also leave a link to the National Trusts write up of the the Lanhydrock house so you can get a better feel for it. I will definitely be back soon as, I want to try out the cycle trails there on a much nicer day.
