The Rame Peninsula Is a Must to Explore.
The Peninsula is clearly visible from the fort, and well within walking distance. The path goes all the way to the 14th century St Michael’s chapel, where wild ponies and deer still roam free, as they have for hundreds of years. A must see location for all visiting the area. Rame church lies along the way, a very small unusual building which has never had electric, and services are still done by candlelight On Rame Head you have visibility along Whitsand Bay, Looe and further into deepest Cornwall, and to the east lies the splendour of Plymouth Sound and the coastline of Devon beyond
The Beautiful Beach of Whitsand Bay.
A coastal heritage area, which remains untouched by the ages, and retains its unique character, as if it was during its smuggling heydays. The beaches of the bay are ever under the watchful eye of the local RNLI life surfing station. For more information on the beach click here. There are 4 miles of sandy beaches, with a small cafe at the top and immediately below. Lots of craggy rocks, rock pools and rugged coastline to enjoy, and its sheer expanse absolutely guarantees you peace and tranquillity, without the hustle and bustle of a crowded beach you may find elsewhere.
Quintessentially Cornish Villages of Cawsands & Kingsands.
A couple of miles from the Fort lies the twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand. A ‘little Polperro’ on our doorstep. Two authentic Cornish smuggling and fishing villages side by side, with tiny coves, rock pools, and beaches. Crammed with pubs and restaurants, and great coastal walks either side of the villages. Water sports of all types available along the shore. The Cawsand passenger ferry runs daily trips to the Barbican, at the heart of Plymouth
Beautiful Historic Houses & gardens to Discover.
Whilst visiting the area, a trip to Mount Edgcumbe Country Park and Mount Edgcumbe House (pictured) is a must. The wonderful formal gardens, and shoreline are worth a stroll around and provide a perfect venue for a picnic. Further into the Peninsula lies the deer park, and extensive coastal walks.
For members of the National Trust why not schedule in a visit to Antony House & gardens? This stunning 18th century house is located between Torpoint and the village of Antony and is only five miles away from us.
A little way up the Tamar estuary lies Cotehele riverside Tudor house , working mill, historic quay and gardens with valley views.
