The Saw Pit – 500m (1/3 mile) 5mins – Packed full of technical features and favouring skill over speed, the two Saw Pit trails are a great place to develop your trail riding skills.
The trails head downhill alongside each other, allowing you and a friend to ride side-by-side and push your limits.

When Thomas Charles refashioned Lanhydrock after a fire in 1881 he specified that he wanted ‘an unpretentious family home’.

While his idea of everyday comfort might be different from our own, there is no doubting the family is at the very heart of this house.

There’s a whole suite of rooms dedicated to the children, family photographs throughout and the morning room was even used by the children as a performance space for annual plays and theatricals.
