I’m so glad we’re getting back to going out once or twice a month again; we’ve visited Trelissick already, and now it’s time for Lanhydrock Gardens. It’s a little more complicated with booking in advance, so a there’s not as much chance to be impulsive.
You can find out more about booking visiting times for the National Trust here.
But with the amazing weather we’re having at the moment; it’s so nice to get out, and enjoy some of our favourite places in the sunshine!
Of course the National Trust houses aren’t open yet; which is understandable, but it’s a rare treat to be able to get out and enjoy Lanhydrock’s beautiful gardens; which, if you’re eagle eyed when it comes to past posts, our visits usually get a bit rainy! (This is purely coincidental! We just have bad luck visiting when it comes to the weather!) The gardens are beautiful, and there is so much to see.
Like our previous visit to Trelissick, we booked in advance, choosing to arrive in mid afternoon.
This particular day was SO hot. We were determined to get out though, and packing some bottled water, and sun cream, we enjoyed a lovely walk at Lanhydrock!
If you want to see some of the house, check out this post.
Again, we barely encountered anyone during our walk, and had a really chilled wander through the gardens. Walking up towards the woodland garden to take in the stunning views, looking down onto Lanhydrock House.
This is one of my favourite National Trust properties near us; and even though we couldn’t visit the house, Lanhydrock gardens did not disappoint. with beautiful views and pretty flowers. Due to lockdown; the planting was missed back in March; so there wasn’t as much planted as usual. The lack of some of the flowerbeds really didn’t affect how pretty it is at Lanhydrock; and there were still pretty hydrangeas and the Elizabethan knot garden, as well as the wildflowers.
We had a lovely afternoon, and again, it helped us feel more confident about getting out and about post-lockdown.
