Unfortunately the house had a serious fire in the 1880s and had to be completely refurbished. The occupants tragically died in the fire.
The house now illustrates a late Victorian country house and estate.
The photo above is the dining room ready for a sumptuous meal. The kitchen was where the magic was created, so we start with photos of the kitchen. Lots of pots and pans ...
... and utensils.
Tea would have been served to the lady of the house.
As for the gentleman, I don't think I'd have got on with him too well, because of that 'trophy' on the floor. Times have fortunately moved on in that respect.
There is somewhere to have a glass of port ...
... while in the meantime work carried on in the ironing room
... and the Victorian dolls waited attention.
Looks like someone was thinking of heading off on a journey.
And so to bed ...
... and in the morning the bath would ready - at the right temperature.
That's about it, a quick tour of Lanhydrock House.
Lots of space outside - about 890 acres I believe. The house is now run by the National Trust. Entrance is free to members. but for non members it is 15.35 for adults and 7.70 for children.
