Bus and Train Links from Plymouth or take the Cremyll Ferry from Admirals Hard at Stonehouse in Plymouth - this service operates daily and takes only 7 minutes.
Tamar Hut sleeps four people comfortably on its fold-out double bed which, when upright, reveals a table and benches, and two single bunks on the other side of the hut are laden with woollen throws and plump pillows for a snug sleep.
For cooler evenings in Tamar, there's a small wood-burning stove with a provision of logs and fire-making kit, as well as candles and candle holders for a little ambience lighting. The hut has solar supply, meaning that there is switch lighting and a small USB charge point for phones and tablets - a little modern luxury in this otherwise 1950's inspired space. There's even a torch for evening walks.
There's a portable kitchen at the side of the hut which allows a preparation space for burgers or breakfasts. If you feel that life's too short for your infamous burnt bacon butty, then why not take advantage of Mount Edgcumbe's two cafes for delicious treats, from breakfasts to cream teas to hearty Cornish meals, and leave the washing up to someone else? After all, you are on holidayâ€¦
Around 150 metres from the huts is the bathroom block, which houses a key-coded private hot water shower, toilets and wash basins.
Mount Edgcumbe Country Park is in south-east Cornwall, around a 50-minute drive from Plymouth harbour. However, thanks to the Cremyll Ferry, guests can easily access downtown Plymouth in just under ten minutes from Tamar Hut, crossing the border from Cornwall to Devon. This is one of the most ancient continual ferry routes in Britain, dating from the 11th century and run by the Edgcumbe family for over 400 years.
Mount Edgcumbe sits right on the Cornish border with Devon, and was actually once part of Devon, but was handed back to the county some decades ago. From the park, you have spectacular views over Drake's Island, Devil's point, Mount Batten, and the hills of Dartmoor in the distance.
