The gardens and house are open until 8 pm. To enjoy the garden at its best you need to go when it is dark. Don't forget to peek into the house to see the Christmas trees.

Great house. Great park, suitable for walking, playing, cycling, dogs while getting fit. Alongside the river Plym there are great opportunities particularly in November and December to get lovely sunset photographs.

This is worth a visit in all weathers but best to fully enjoy if it is not raining. The views are breathtaking.
