Visited the park in June 2018. It was gloriously hot weather, a wonderful place to visit. Got the ferry over from the Hoe, a great way to get there. Food in The Stable was lovely.

A peaceful, beautiful country park with good facilities. Well surfaced paths which, with the hired Tramper, make the park very accessible for those with a disability. The Orangery café is a 'must visit'! Brilliant views over towards Plymouth and beyond. Every member of staff we...More

This is great place to visit and park while you explore this part of Cornwall. Moderate to easy walks taking in Cremyll, Kingsand and Rame Head for the more adventurous. All part of the coastal pathway. The orangery is a good stop for refreshments.

This is an inspiring place to visit with so many interesting things to do, to see and places to eat good food. The view from house and gardens are amazing - the house is interesting and the walks in the extensive grounds pleasing!
