LANHYDROCK, Bodmin, PL30 5AD
Part-Jacobean, part-Victorian building that gives a vivid picture of life in Victorian times. The 'below stairs' sections has a huge kitchen, larders, dairy, bakehouse, cellars, and servants' quarters. The long gallery has a moulded ceiling showing Old Testament scenes, and overlooks the formal gardens with their clipped yews and bronze urns. The higher garden, famed for its magnolias and rhododendrons, climbs the hillside behind the house. The estate is well worth exploring too, with ancient woodlands and tranquil riverside paths. There are also off-road cycle trails, with special routes for families and novice riders, and you can even hire a bike to make the most of this opportunity.
