A breathtaking tour around the waterside perimeter of the Mount Edgcumbe estate, with tremendous views across Plymouth Sound and a host of eighteenth-century follies, fountains, seats and shelters along the path. The route travels through the parkland and woodland of the historic family seat of the Earls of Edgcumbe, who built the house at the heart of the estate in the mid-sixteenth century. The house and its formal gardens, as well as tea-room, restaurant and shop, are open to the public during the summer season; but the South West Coast Path, passing through the estate, is open throughout the year.
