Reasons for trip

We parked in the top car park (next to the deer park) which was free. There are others nearer the river Tamar(pay and display) but the views from the top, by the estate church are unsurpassable. A large stretch of the water and Millbrook Creek could be seen, and descending down the path through woodland, the house appears on the right; alas "no entry" signs this time of year, but the grounds are wonderful anyway. Below the house are extensive gardens, mostly shrubberies but full of exotic plants. The orangery was closed until early January. With the mild climate, the camellias were in flower (Dec 28th!) The Cremmel ferry (passenger) from Plymouth joins the country Park so this would be a good way to approach. We walked for maybe 2 or 3 miles around the edge of the estate, on a path which hugged the edge of the river estuary, with views across to Plymouth Hoe and the cliffs at Wembury. Although parts were a bit muddy, the views and tranquillity were amazing. After Fort Picklecombe, the path continues through woodland and then bends around a grassy combe to emerge back at the deer park car park. We even saw a large herd of deer nearby. A marvellous day. In summer it would be a perfect place for a picnic and a stroll.
