Rame Peninsula

Age group: 10+

Location: EAST Cornwall

The Rame Peninsula in east Cornwall is an area of outstanding natural beauty with many quiet, secluded beaches, awe-inspiring scenery and a number of popular walks.


The South West Coastal Path in Cornwall, which starts at Cremyll by the mouth of the River Lyner,  passes through Mount Edgcumbe Park, which is another popular visitor attraction nearby.


This part of the coastline is known as Rame Head Heritage Coast. The views are fantastic, whether you look across the border to Plymouth or along the coastline into Cornwall.


Often described as 'Cornwalls forgotten corner', this part of east Cornwall is generally less crowded than the north or west, and therefore can often offer a somewhat quieter holiday destination. Many visitors to Cornwall normally pass by this area on their way to the more popular destinations like Looe or Newquay. It is 'isolated' due to its geography and it's bounded by water on pretty much as sides; with the English Channel, Plymouth Sound, the River Tamar and the River Lynher.


It's also a good location to, dare we say it my birds, explore Devon too! You can get there either by using the Torpoint ferry or using the A38 (remember you need to pay to leave Cornwall going over the Tamar Bridge!) Attractions here worth seeing would be Plymouth & Drakes Circus shopping centre, and Dartmoor.



FACT: Until boundary reform in the 19th century parts of the Rame Peninsula formed part of Devon (Oh My Gar!) as the manors had been possessions of Tavistock Abbey from Norman times!
