Walk Details
The terrain along much of The Coastal Path is uneven to put it mildly. There are some steep stretches, including steps, and it can be very muddy, particularly in the winter.

The sections around Cremyll and Mount Edgcumbe House and its gardens are much more straightforward and can be accessed using wheelchairs and pushchairs.

For a small fee you can even hire a rugged ‘Tramper’ mobility scooter, provided by Countryside Mobility SW.

The path follows the waterside perimeter of the Mount Edgcumbe Estate and affords tremendous views across Plymouth Sound.

The route is littered with 18th century follies, fountains, seats and shelters as it passes through the parks and woodland of the ancestral home of the Earls of Edgcumbe.

The house, its gardens, tea-room, restaurant and shop are open to the public during the summer. But the path which passes through the estate is open all-year round.
