Lanhydrock

This magnificent 17th-century mansion set in the Fowey Valley is one of England’s grandest country houses. Built originally by a rich merchant, Sir Richard Robartes, it remained in the same family until the National Trust took it over in 1953. It was reconstructed in 1881 following a disastrous fire. Though parts of the Jacobean building survived – notably its famous Long Gallery – the dominant style is that of the High Victorian era. The warren of 50 visitable rooms offers a glimpse into life inside a stately pile, from the huge kitchens to Lady Robartes’ boudoir.
