Discover Mount Edgcumbe Country Park
Mount Edgcumbe Country Park is located at Cremyll, near Torpoint, and covers 865 acres of country park - all on Plymouth's doorstep and just 15 minutes away by ferry. Within the country park you'll discover herds of wild deer; formal gardens and landscaped woodlands with breathtaking panoramic views; historic buildings including forts, a temple, a folly and an orangery; the national camellia collection and more than 180 species of trees.
A perfect day out in the saddle
The multi-use trail is suitable for walkers, cyclists, horse-riders, wheelchair users and buggies.
The trail extends from the lower park gates at Cremyll along the park road (limited vehicle access), up the hard-surface woodland paths to reach the reinforced grass track which circles the deer park. It can be joined at any of the car parks which lie within or near to the country park. Families will find the deer park trail easy-going for push-chairs and tricycles - and ideal for young cyclists to practice their bike-riding! – while serious bikers may prefer the slopes and winding woodland sections. Along the way are information points where you can leave your bike and explore some of the park's many footpaths - including the landscape trail which takes in Mount Edgcumbe House, the formal gardens, the beaches and cliffs. So, if you fancy a change of scenery, why not leave the car behind and take a walk - or a ride - in the park?
