Mount Edgcumbe

You can take a boat from Plymouth to Mount Edgcumbe in Cornwall. A worthwhile trip to take taking you from Devon to Cornwall in a short hop.

The Edgcumbe Belle is a tiny little boat that ferries tourists to and from the impressive Mount Edgcumbe stately pile.

It’s a drizzly grey day but we’ve landed in Cornwall!

Mount Edgcumbe House is the former home of the Earls of Mount Edgcumbe. Set in Grade I Cornish Gardens within 865 acres Country Park on the Rame Peninsula, South East Cornwall.

Mount Edgcumbe House was first built in the 1500s and was restored after World War Two.

It is jointly owned by Cornwall Council and Plymouth City Council and is one of the regions most popular historic tourist destinations.

There’s art and sculpture dotted around the grounds to enjoy – and when it got too damp we retreated to a traditional Cornish past time – cream teas!

Fully stuffed and ready to do a little more exploring of this lovely little spot.

And below is the beautiful house itself which you can pay to visit – but we’re cheap skates (and very full) so give it a miss this time.

World traveller, proud auntie, bit of a liability.
