The former seat of the Earls of Mount Edgcumbe, Mount Edgcumbe House is surrounded by formal gardens and set in a Grade 1 listed landscape. The country park covers 865 acres of the Rame Peninsula. The woodland and coastal walks and marvellous view combine to make Mount Edgcumbe one of the most spectacular attractions in the West Country at any time of year. The Old Signal House sits in the wider Mount Edgcumbe Estate and the beautiful woodland Earls Drive leading to the property is jointly maintained by the Estate.
The gardens at Mount Edgcume are a step through history themselves as each generation has expanded the gardens to create a landscaped park.
