This Christmas, Lanhydrock, near Bodmin, will be offering a traditional Victorian Christmas experience throughout December. Open every day from 11am-4pm (except Christmas Day and Boxing Day) visitors can enjoy a hearty welcome from the Victorian staff in the outer hall, complete with a roaring fire and decorated 10-ft tree.

Selected rooms have been dressed as though the family has just left for the Christmas Day church service. Explore the bustling kitchens whilst helping the cook and kitchen maids prepare festive food and decorations. Discover who was really invited to Lanhydrock over 100 years ago and what was on the Christmas dinner menu.

Visit the dining room to see it set in glittering, High-Victorian style. And if this gets your culinary juices flowing, why not indulge in a delightful three-course Christmas Lunch in the Servant’s Hall Restaurant?

Booking essential, meals are served from 12-14 and 19-21 December.

For those who love the great outdoors, come and explore our winter woodland walks around the estate or take advantage of our on-site cycle hire and get your blood pumping on our woodland bike trails.

There is also a foodie-themed children’s garden trail; can you help Mrs Candy the Lanhydrock cook find all the ingredients for her feast? When you’re done, you can warm up with a luxurious hot chocolate at the Park Café before indulging in a little last-minute Christmas shopping at our gift shop and plant centre. Don’t forget, you can always gift your loved ones entry to over 500 magical places with a National Trust Gift membership.

For the first time this year, there will be free children’s storytelling readings every weekend from 8 to 16 December, plus the 21 - 24. Come in and hang a wish on the Wishing Tree! And of course, a visit wouldn’t be complete without an audience with Father Christmas himself. He’s a busy chap so booking is essential through our online event listing or by calling our booking office on 0344 249 1895.
