Known as Cornwall’s forgotten corner, the Rame Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with tidal creeks, sandy beaches, rolling fields and outstanding country parks.

Small villages hide at the heads of creeks, waiting to be discovered, whilst the stretch of coast fronting onto Whitsand Bay offers fantastic views and great walking along the South West Coast Path.

Sheltered by the headland are the twin villages of Cawsand and Kingsand. Once a popular haunt of smugglers, they are now popular places to visit with a wide variety of pubs, cafes and restaurants. The Rame Peninsula also boasts a number of quality shops and galleries. A seasonal passenger ferry runs from Cawsand to Plymouth Barbican and the Cremyll ferry to Plymouth runs all year round.

Rame Head, at the eastern end of Whitsand Bay, guards Plymouth Sound from the prevailing winds. It is crowned by the remains of a 14th Century chapel, dedicated to St Michael. Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park and Antony House are the Peninsula’s historic country estates and fine houses.
