The Rame Peninsula

The Rame Peninsula is known as 'the forgotten corner' and is a haven of tranquility bordered on three sides by water. The peninsula is home to quiet secluded beaches, stunning scenery and spectactular coastal walks. The coastal path winds its way around the coastline and through 800 acres of Mount Edgcume Park.

Rame Head is a delightful half hour walk from the Old Signal House and is part of the SSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) due to its biological and geographical interest. The historic church of St Germanus stands on Rame Head - it is a building that has never had electric and services are still done by candlelight.

Further along the coast the three mile long sands of Whitsand Bay beckon - a favourite for surfers and familes being safely manned by the RNLI and with facilities in the form of a small cafe at the top and immediately below.

Visitors to the Old Signal House can take the passenger ferry from Cremyll to Stonehouse and also during the summer season there is a boat trip service from Cawsand Beach.
