Local Information

The Rame Peninsula also is known as Cornwall’s Forgotten Corner and is surrounded by Whitsand Bay, Plymouth Sound and the Lynher and Tamar estuaries. The area which is known for its outstanding beauty has lots to offer people of all ages. 

The old fishing villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are set upon the picturesque coastline of South East Cornwall with quirky cottages, cobbled streets and a number of traditional pubs and fine food restaurants. The rugged coastline is complemented by a series of sandy beaches, hidden coves and county walks. The Post Office, Village Store and Shop in the Square ensure that you are well catered for and are supported by a larger selection of shops in the neighboring village of Millbrook. 

Millbrook is Cornwall's largest village and boasts all of the amenities that you would expect of a well-equipped town (doctors surgery, newsagents, hairdressers, supermarket, garage, cafes, pubs, etc) whilst retaining its strong community spirit.  This hidden gem has a selection of traditional cottages, a picturesque lake and a number of rural walks towards Whitsand Bay / Rame Head, Mount Edgcumbe & Plymouth or Cawsand / Kingsand. 

The smaller villages across the peninsula all have their own unique identity and there are some great hamlets too. Cremyll is located at the entrance of the outstanding Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park and is a gateway into Plymouth across the Cremyll Ferry. St John, Antony, and Crafthole all small in size but large in hospitality, with popular public houses or restaurants. Portwrinkle offers a more intimate coastal retreat with it's own beach and harbor. 

Whitsand Bay and it's gorgeous beaches run along the southerly end of the peninsula and offers miles of fantastic footpaths with the most breathtaking views. Popular with surfers and water enthusiasts, the beaches are accessed via a cliff path and are all dog-friendly year-round. A number of traditional chalets are peppered across the cliffside, offering outstanding views in an incredibly unique location.
