A lovely palladian house with exquisite interiors and beautiful grounds. Small but well-stocked gift shop, and a restaurant selling a range of hot and cold food and drinks are very also very welcome, especially on a typical autumn afternoon!

Lovely day out to the house and gardens, well worth the NT membership fee! Agree with others that the refreshment prices are a tad steep, but that's often the case with NT, and the quality is good. I'll be going again to see the gardens in different seasons.

Peace and quiet within the city boundary. Immaculate lawns and gardens. Good for the little ones, no dogs inside so clean. Mums and toddlers seem to enjoy the space on a nice day during school times. Games and balls etc available and National trust members park for free. Dog walkers for public park now have to pay.

Being fairly local and a NT member I started using the parkland as a good route to walk with my dog. After undergoing several operations on my leg this year I became a bit housebound and stir crazy not being able to walk or drive. Friends were driving me around so I could hobble about on crutches and the one... More

We are NT members. Lovely walks with views over Plymouth Sound plus interesting house fully furnished and very well preserved. Big enough to spend 4/5 hrs if exploring gardens/walks.

A National Trust Gem, but I am a bit biased having lived [& worked] on the estate & in the House which is wonderful, man & boy at periods over many years. It has obviously changed due to local popularity being so close to Plympton & Plymouth, although paying for parking to non members has made a difference.

It's great for pretty level walk and if you take the long route along the river you can push it a bit more. If your not so sprightly on your feet or have a disability this can be a good place to head for
