welcome to Visit Rame the official holiday accommodation, tourist information and local services website for the Rame Peninsula in South East Cornwall.

Known as Cornwall’s forgotten south east corner, the Rame Peninsula is a beautiful landscape of tidal creeks, sandy beaches, lush farmland and 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 well geared up for the tourist trade with waterfront pubs and restaurants. A seasonal passenger ferry runs from Cawsand to Plymouth Barbican.

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 and is a popular spot for birdwatchers. Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park and Antony House are Rame’s green spaces by the sea. Situated on a peninsula with over 10 miles of breathtaking coastline this is one of the most astonishing public spaces in the UK.
