Lanhydrock House, NATIONAL TRUST
Lanhydrock house is set in wooded parkland of 450 acres and surrounded
by a garden of rare shrubs and trees, splendid in all seasons. Make sure
that you have come early to view all 50 rooms, ranging from the richly-furnished
main rooms reflecting Victorian comfort, to Servant's bedrooms, the Great Kitchen
with it's massive fireplace and the Nursery wing.
Lanhydrock was built in the 17th-century but parts had to be re-built
after a fire in 1881, the principal rooms all have delicate plaster ceilings,
including that of the long gallery magnificently illustrating the Old Testament
scenes. Through the gatehouse (1651) a walk down to the River Fowey at
Respryn Bridge and back through the woods should not be missed.
Located 2 and a half miles South-east of Bodmin; follow the signposts from
either the A30, A38 (Bodmin-Liskeard) or the B3268 (Bodmin-Lostwithiel) roads.
