Mount Edgcumbe Country Park
Home of the Earls of Mount Edgcumbe for 400 years, come and enjoy one of Cornwall's finest country estates.
With wide ranging parkland, formal gardens and ever changing coastal views. The Mt Edgcumbe Country Park covers over 860 acres, stretching from Millbrook Lake around the Rame Head and Whitsand Bay, and taking in the villages of Cawsand and Kingsand.
In the heart of the park are the colourful 18th Century formal gardens in the Italian, French and English styles, complimented by the newly established American plantation and New Zealand garden. Exploring out into the landscaped park, there are any number of woodland and coastal walks giving marvellous views and access to unusual follies and the chance to see deer that roam freely in the park.
All this combines to make Mount Edgcumbe one of the most spectacular attractions in the West Country at any time of the year. One of only three Grade I Listed gardens in Cornwall, the park includes the National Camellia Collection and has some stunning examples of rhododendrons, and magnolias in the spring time.
A recent addition to the park is a model railway offering rides behind steam and electric engines. From Easter 2022 this will offer rides to the public on each Sunday and Thursday until the end of September between 1100 and 1500, weather permitting.
The country park is open all year round, daily from 8am to dusk and is free to the public.
