    My wife and I visited the garden and, during our time there, were drenched when the skies opened up. We still enjoyed ourselves. The gardens are varied, with formal, Italian style gardens and adventur...  more »

  • The grounds around this stately home are magnificent, and don't have that sanitised national trust feel. The cafe is very reasonably priced and has exceptionally good food, much of which seems to be sourced from the estate itself.
  • It's is a beautiful, tranquil, relaxing location to visit. The staff are brilliantly helpful, friendly and extremely informative in regards to the history of the estate. There are stunningly plants scattered throughout the grounds and gardens. The café offers a great selection of food and drinks whether you want something large to eat, something to nibble on or something sweet to tickle your taste buds. All of the ingredients used in the cooking within the café are grown from the estate, hearded on the estate or laid on the estate. What's more, the food and beverages are excellently priced and not expensive in the slightest. Tapeley Park is a must for anyone visiting Devon or Cornwall. I personally return every year without failure.
  • Beautiful gardens surround an old house. Fantastic views of the bay on a clear day.
  • Lovely gardens, but no access to the house.
  • Lovely grounds to explore, lots to see - gardens, views, lake, topiary, follies, woods. Quirky and informal. Beautiful permaculture garden with unique atmosphere, completely environmentally friendly with lots of unusual edible plants, herbs etc - very inspiring.
