The Gardens of Lanhydrock

If I was designing my dream house I would make sure that it also had a massive garden, a garden that months later you'd still be discovering new parts and one you'd never get bored of looking at. 

We've got a pretty small garden, a patio, grass and a space to grow some vegetables in but at least we have one. When we were down in Cornwall we visited a National Trust place called Lanhydrock which is just outside of Bodmin. 

A little background information on Lanhydrock is that it's Cornwall's most complete Victorian country house and the grounds cover 900 acres. The house it's self was once the home of the Agar-Roberts family. There are over 50 rooms to see and it really is a step back in time to take you back to what a grand Victorian house would have looked like. 

The gardens are some of the most amazing you'll find anywhere in the World, they were planned by George Truefitt in 1854 and surround the whole house with year round colour. The garden itself have hardly changed since the 1860s. 

While we were there they had an Easter Egg hunt so while I was taking photos the girls were hunting looking for clues which worked well for both of us. 

My words can't do it justice so hopefully my photos will help.
