Lovely day out in the summer. Gardens are lovely with toilet facilities available and clean. Plenty safe space for children to run about. Didn't visit the house but looks lovely. Prefer the outdoors. Ferry access at the entrance to make more of a day of it :-)

The surrounding gardens are wonderful for walking. If you choose your area well the walk does not have to be too taxing either.

This Country Park is a bit out of the way unless you travel on the ferry from "across the water". Nevertheless it is worth a visit on a fine day. We gave the House a miss as it is a relatively modern reconstructuion replacing the burned-out original, but there are barns and other buildings which contain craft displays. I would... More

the peninsula has a remarkable history - naval, military & strategic - which makes the landscape a kind of history book. Good walking country with lots of wild life opportunities

This is more a country park owned my the county than an old estate.... you will need to pay for car parking.... the blurb states that house visits are timed and assisted however thay are NOT... but price is still the same.... very small house with poor contents... house NOT recommended.... estate is recommended

Had a lovely walk around here. Also visited the cafe and craft workshops. Lovely lady very patiently letting the young children have a go at weaving. Wonderful views towards Plymouth too.

This is a lovely Country Park just over the river from Plymouth. There are plenty of walks in the park or along the rive. A ferry service is available from Plymouth (avoiding a longish car trip over the river) When arriving from Cornwall there is plenty of parking (at only £2.00/day)
