Been coming here all my life. Whenever I return to the homelands this place is on the list. Take a walk, throw stones in the sea and have a coffee in the Orangery. After that drive to Cawsand and walk to Kingsand.

Take a picnic , some activities for the kids. Or go in the lovely cafe, or play frissbe golf. Lovely day out. And travel by ferry makes the experience more fun. And the views are amazing.

On Sunday 12th October my Wife and I made our first long-awaited visit to to Mount Edgcumbe and we were not not disappointed! From the moment that we drove through the gates we were struck by the sheer size of the park and the huge array of outdoor activities available (and some wet weather ones for the youngsters). A superb... More

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 :-)

As part of our visit to Devon this summer, we attended the wedding of my spouse's cousin. The civil ceremony was held in Plymouth, however, the reception was held at the Orangery set in the Italian Gardens on Mount Edgcumbe which is in Cornwall, across the harbour from the Stonehouse area of Plymouth. Access is by the Cremyll Foot Ferry... More

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
