Lanhydrock is known for the late Victorian National Trust House and estate that once belonged to the Agar-Robartes family through the 18th Century. With ancient woodlands, winding rivers and well-kept gardens, Lanhydrock is a great day out.
And now it’s even better!
New this spring is the Lanhydrock Cycle Hub. Cornwall’s newest cycling attraction. The £3 million Cycle Hub at the National Trust Lanhydrock Estate near Bodmin includes 10km of purpose-built trails winding through the estate’s woodland – including a skills area, a cycle hire shop, the new Park Café and children’s play area, all with plenty of parking.
The trails are cycle-specific and designed to be ridden in one direction; however, walkers can enjoy the green track just as much, especially if your little cyclist isn’t that proficient yet. There are off road cycle trails and special routes for families and novice riders.
The green route is smoother and wider and winds through relatively level woodland, but still makes for an interesting ride (see images below). There are three blue trails designed for moderate riders. These are narrower and have sharper turns, dips and bumps. There is also a red route which has a much steeper incline and created for the more experienced mountain biker.
Lanhydrock have a full range of bikes for hire for all heights and abilities. Child seat mounts are also available and they offer free helmets as standard.
