-Rame Head is an historic site set on the steep cliffs overlooking the sea. There is evidence of buildings from as far back as the Iron Age and Bronze Age. See barrows, remnants of castles, dwellings and other fascinating sites. There is also a chapel that was dedicated to St Michael the Archangel dating from the medieval period.

-The James Egan Layne Wreck is a popular site with scuba diving enthusiasts. Sinking in 1945, it’s a massive 7000 ton wreck that was hit by a German torpedo, and then towed to salvage most of its cargo. It sunk to a depth of almost 80m, making it one of the most popular wrecks to explore.

-Cawsand Bay is an historic fishing village on the Rame Peninsula. Once famous for a successful smuggling ring, it is now just a place of stunning natural beauty and a popular tourist attraction. It’s a magical little town, with lots of walks and little winding streets sweeping over 800 acres along the coast.

-Port Winkle Walks are a favourite way to see the breathtaking coastline at its most spectacular. The walk is approximately 4.5 miles and starts at Port Winkle, passing the Whitsand Battery and Freathy and ending up at the Whitsand Bay Holiday Park. Chill out at the Cliff Top Café for some cool refreshments after the two and a half hour walk.

Great holiday location

5 of 5
We all enjoyed our stay in this house. It was very clean and well maintained, and we thoroughly recommend it to anyone who would like to visit this area. We were a bit worried as pets are allowed but we found no evidence to suggest that guests were abusing the rules. Kingsand and Cawsand are only a little walk from the property. There are many walks and activities to keep your busy ( my daughter and husband took a canoe trip around the shoreline) and the pubs with their occasional live music. The village shop on the Square is a great little place to get a pizza or some fish and chips( there are seats outside where you can sit or you can take your food down to the beach). The owners are very friendly. We love the area and can't wait to plan our next trip.
