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

The crochet workshop was great - this one was for moving on after the basics, and making a hat. Jane our instructor was very good; lots of good ideas and guidance. I learned lot today - and all for £15 including tea and biscuits!

Surrounded by water on three sides, Mt Edgcumbe is a lovely country estate for walking around enjoying the views of Plymouth across the River Tamar, Plymouth Sound and out to sea beyond the Cornish coast. Recently, there has been the additional attraction of Segway touring, which is wonderful fun! There are a couple of cafes on the estate, a pub at the quayside, one of the national camellia collections, and of course access to the coast path leading to the twin villages of Kingsand/Cawsand, from where you can board a return ferry to Plymouth if you travelled to Mt Edgcumbe via the Cremyll ferry. There are wild deer and farmed sheep on the higher fields, so dogs should be kept on a lead. The formal gardens and lower grounds are lovely for a less challenging wander. A great place for all ages. The downside may be that there is limited parking for cars. A higher car park with an honesty box, a lower car park near housing with a ticket machine, and waterside parking outside the pub.

First time we visited the park and it was beautiful. We walked just over 5 miles taking in some excellent views over Plymouth. The walk took us right the way round the park, tackling some unlevel track in places but good walking boots does the trick. Take a picnic with you and just sit and watch the world go by, such a beautiful and relaxing place to visit.
