Just outside of Bodmin and of the A30 sits the grand house of Lanhydrock. It’s enormous and is one of the National Trusts largest and best. It is absolutely crammed full of collections of antiquities and artwork that a Property inventory clerk would need a Property inventory software app from https://inventorybase.co.uk/ to get the job done.

There should not be a need to sell it. It is currently owned by the charity in totality and is one of it’s most visited sites. One of the best things about the property is it’s location to the road system of the UK. It sits at the junction of the A30 and the start of the A38 which goes all the way to Mansfield in Nottinghamshire.

The property came into the ownership of the Trust as the Family that owned it, the Agar-Robartes saw their fortunes and heir’s dwindle. They also ended up having the family home moved to Wimpole Hall in Cambridgeshire making Lanhydrock surplus to requirements. The loss to the family was the Trust, and therefore the Nations, gain. There is still a member of the family living on the site in a small cottage in the grounds. They have a Victorian Tea room that only serves tea made from leaves.
