Mount Edgcumbe offers a selection of beautiful gardens with interactive features such as 'bat cam' for spotting bats of an evening, a sawmill with historical style machinery to try and boat trips to Plymouth can be arranged.
The Earl's garden was created beside the Tudor House in the 18th century. Ancient and rare trees including a 400 year old lime, a splendid Lucombe oak, and a Mexican pine, are set amidst classical garden houses, and an exotic shell seat! Colourful flowers and heather grace the recreated Victorian east lawn terrace, which has spectacular views over Plymouth Sound.
The formal gardens can be found in the lower park and were created over 200 years ago in the English, French and Italian styles. They have recently been added to with an American plantation and a New Zealand styled garden, both countries having strong family connections. In 2002 a Jubilee Garden was established to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee.
A series of ponds enhance the small valley garden overlooking Plymouth Sound with its shingle beach. The lower pond near Milton's Temple is a great haven for bird life. Early plantings of camellias are found in the area.
