The decadent main rooms and the servants’ bedrooms that give a true insight into the class divides that permeated England in the 1800s. See the world of the kitchen staff and see if you make the cut!

You can truly step back in time at Lanhydrock!

One of Lanhydrock’s main features is its nearly 1,000 acres of parkland that make up the grounds of the estate.
