“Gateway to Paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Admiral's Hard, in Stonehouse is the place where you board this little passenger ferry to cross the mouth of the River Tamar. On the other side you're a world away from the noise and bustle of the big city, in an oasis of calm and beauty which is the Mount Edgcumbe Country Park.

To find the ferry you follow a road leading to the shore and walk along a causeway if the tide is low. The ferries run frequently. The times are posted up at both ends, so check them for your return before you set off on your walk. The ferry has bus connections at both ends, too.

The ferry trip itself is scenic. You can admire the fine naval buildings facing upstream, known as the Royal William Yard, that are now being converted into luxury appartments, restaurants and bars. You can also see parts of the naval dockyard just up-river and you may see some ships or smaller craft like tug boats and catamarans that carry supplies to ships anchored far out in the Sound.

Its not the biggest ferry or the longest journey in the UK but its always well-run and friendly, and its not expensive. Use it!

“Brilliant little ferry trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

I love taking the Cremyll ferry, it makes me feel like a kid again! You get to see all the boats that are in the harbour or the marina and also lots of people from a different viewpoint. I use the ferry to get across to Mount Edgcumbe where there are some nice walks. It is not expensive and well worth the trip.
