House open Sunday to Thursday 11am to 4.30pm, last admission 4pm
Set within beautiful grade I listed gardens, Mount Edgecumbe House and the EarlÕs garden is open to the public every year between April and September. A wider area of the country park is free to visit and includes the National Camelia collection planted here and a trail covering almost the full extent of the estate. Along this path, you will encounter most of the outer buildings and features which include an 16th century church, a fort, temple, a folly, a battery and considerable deer park. The trail is divided into two routes: one for the mixed use of walkers, horse riders and wheelchair users and another which is only deemed suitable for walkers.
The sixteenth century property once belonged to the Earls of Mount Edgecumbe; now under the joint care of Cornwall County and Plymouth City Councils, the property has become one of the most prominent tourist attractions in the area. Aside from the exquisite gardens containing a number roof rare trees and plant species, the house itself holds many impressive works of art and old belongings of the family.
There are two restaurants (although one of these is sometimes closed for private functions) and a shop selling refreshments.
Altogether, this one grand estate holds enough to interest visitors of all ages for the whole day; it is a piece of CornwallÕs heritage kept at itÕs best for generations to enjoy.
