We came rather late in the afternoon, so we did not have time for the huge park and also missed the tearoom which closes at 4pm, in order to be able to visit the house. But even so we liked the place very much. The house which was destroyed during WWII was restored by the family in the fifties. And... More

Perched high the gardens overlook Plymouth sound, and you can watch the yachts and ships sail by. We wanted to see the formal gardens and were impressed with their design and content. The gardens are divided by high hedges into different zones; with English, French, American, New Zealand and Italian gardens. Each were superb but we loved the Italian garden... More

It's hard to imagine that Mount Edgcumbe dates so far back as to once have looked across and below to essentially three smaller villages rather than today's widespread Plymouth which today fills our eyes so completely. The almost 900 acre gardens are Grade ! rated and unquestionably deservedly so at that. With sculptures and varied room like effects, the grounds... More

A pleasant look round the gardens for a couple of hours. Beautiful flowers, interesting insects and nice water views. Didnt go in the house.

Thinking of a day foot we went to Mount Edgcumbe for a day out. Car parking at Cremyll is very cheap put to Plymouth where we live. As soon as you enter the bottom of the Estate you get a stunning view up to the house. We had a quick cuppa sat outside the Orangery which was lovely. Then walked... More

Extensive ground for walking, pleasant gardens, TWO cafes as different locations, the best being The Stables, the other, The Orangery. However, if you want to visit the house at over 7 pounds, use the cafes and explore the gardens, with parking this can amount to a lot of money. Research which car park to park in, tho the ticket for... More

loved our visit to Mount Edgecombe. Was able to walk the dog through the vast grounds. Has an amazing collection of camelia's. Outstanding views of the estuary and Plymouth/Saltash. Suitable disabled access. Cant wait to visit again. Paid £2 for all day parking - a bargain.

Mt Edgcumbe consists of more than 600 acres of formal and natural parkland. The walks and views from the park are stunning and there are frequent activities and events happening all year round. Definitely worth visiting.

Mount Edgecombe gardens are wonderful to explore and easy to get to from Plymouth, just hop on the Cremyll ferry.
