Lanhydrock, one of Cornwall's grandest houses, dates back to the seventeenth century but much was rebuilt after a fire in 1881 destroyed all but the entrance porch and the north wing, which includes the magnificent Long Gallery with its extraordinary plaster ceiling. A total of fifty rooms are on show today, including servants' bedrooms, kitchens, the nursery suite, and the grandeur of the dining-room. Surrounding the house are formal Victorian gardens, wooded higher gardens where magnolias, rhododendrons and camellias climb the hillside. A famous avenue of ancient beech and sycamore trees runs down towards the Fowey at Respryn.
