We love the gardens at Mount Edgcumbe which are beautiful at all times of year. In Spring, the bushes are resplendent with camellias of every imaginable colour, in Summer the rose beds are a mass of frothy pinks, whites and reds, and in Autumn, the magnificent trees scatter a carpet of russet, amber and ruby leaves on the ground.
Views across the water are splendid. And the tearooms serve delicious refreshments. With plenty of space for children to run around and have fun, this is a great family venue.

Great walks and views over to Plymouth from this lovely country park. You can walk down to the Tamar River and along to the frerry terminus for Plymouth.

lovely staff, nice location, food good, unfortunately had the fish chips and peas and for £11.50 thought it was a complete rip off. fish the size of a spratt, table spoon of peas and a dozen chips. I've had a childrens fish and chips in other places at quarter of the cost.

We visited Mount Edgcumbe whilst staying at a beautiful holiday rental nearby.You can easily get there on foot from Plymouth by the Cremyll Ferry or drive round via Torpoint.
Mount Edgcumbe is owned by the city of Plymouth. The House is interesting but it is really the wonderful grounds and walks which are a must.
There are beautiful views to Plymouth Sound. Pavilions, an Orangery with a wonderful cafe.Great pasties from the little gatehouse. It is a real treat and not to be missed if you are visiting Plymouth!

We stayed at Cremyll and spent a few hours for two days exploring the grounds. Views over the Tamar to Plymouth and Drake Island are wonderful. View from the house itself is breathtaking you can see for miles. Nice little craft centre there with a cafe to get tea, cakes etc
