The Rame Peninsula (South East Cornwall)
The Rame Peninsula is just under an hour's drive from Roundhouse Barns. It is Known as Cornwall’s forgotten south east corner.
The Rame Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a 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.
The Rame Peninsula is bordered on three sides by water; the River Lynher, River Tamar and Plymouth Sound.
It encompasses the villages of Antony, Cremyll, Kingsand, Cawsand, Millbrook, St.John, Sheviock, Wilcove, Crafthole, Downderry, Portwrinkle, Seaton, Freathy and Whitsand Bay and Torpoint.
Rame is just across the Devon border and linked to Plymouth by the famous Tamar Bridge, the Torpoint Car Ferry, the Cremyll Passenger Ferry and in summer, by the Weston Maid, a delightful boat trip from the Barbican in Plymouth across Plymouth Sound and landing on Cawsand Beach.
