You can take a variety of routes and they offer a pleasant and non too challenging walks and they are suitably finished off in the gallery tea room!

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

We visited on a sunny Saturday afternoon in April and it seemed that half the population of Plymouth were there. Cars were wedged in every available space ( and some unavailable spaces!) but the circular walk through the woods to the river Plym then back up to the house was spectacular and surprisingly uncrowded.

Visit monthly for walks around the estate, and to top up on fruit curd from the shop, it is delicious, flavours include raspberry, black currant and mango and passion fruit - delicious. Fresh food served daily in cafe including soups, and Devon cream teas :)

Really enjoyed our visit when we were actually members of the National Trust but would not have been happy to pay the full entry fee. A convenient location quite near Plymouth.

Convenient for a quick walk in lovely surroundings but so so busy and it's not even the Holliday season!!! The cars that try and park have ruined the grass verges, and so many dogs off lead that are running wild!!! The attitude of the cafe staff and the service is frustrating. Slow, expensive, small portions and the cup sizes are... More

A great walk, cycle or run. Visit the house and gardens and try a nice snack in the café. Well worth a visit. The dogs love it too.

We only visited the gardens (our choice) which we thoroughly enjoyed. It's more a closely managed park than a garden as such, which suits me fine as I prefer trees and shrubs to herbaceous borders. Once inside the park, all was great. Outside, less great. The cafe is rather small and therefore even more crowded than most NT eateries, but... More
