Cornwall's Forgotten Corner

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 steeped in history hide at the heads of creeks, waiting to be discovered, whilst the spectacular stretch of coast fronting onto Whitsand Bay offers breathtaking views, a range of watersports and great walking along the South West coast path. 

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.

Sheltered by the headland are the twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand. Once a popular haunt of smugglers, they are now popular places to visit with a variety of quality shops and galleries.

Rame Gig Club in Cawsand houses two gig boats and offers taster rows every Friday evening. Gig racing is a fast growing sport local to Cornwall, Isles of Scilly and Devon, with colourful Regattas held throughout the summer. 

Passenger ferries from Cremyll point connect Cornwall to Plymouth and the seasonal Cawsand ferry runs to the Barbican area.

Rame is the ancestral homes of Antony House, Port Elliot and Mount Edgcumbe, with it's 865-acre estate, deer park, gardens, galleries and gift shops.

The South East coastal path runs through the peninsula, offering lovely coastal walks that overlook many beautiful unspoilt beaches and coves.
