Lanhydrock is known the Victorian National Trust House and estate that once belonged to the Agar-Robartes family through the 18th Century. Seeped in history and currounded by ancient woodlands, winding rivers and well-kept gardens, Lanhydrock is a great day out.
And it just got even better!
This spring Lanhydrock Cycle Hub was opened, 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, mums and dads can enjoy running along the green track just as much, especially if your little cyclist isn’t that proficient yet. The green route is smoother and wider and winds through relatively level woodland, so it’s perfect for families and novice riders.
There are three blue trails designed for moderate riders. These are narrower and have sharper turns, dips and jumps.
And finally the red route which has a much steeper incline and created for the more experienced mountain biker.
Take a close look at the trails here.
