Known as Cornwall’s forgotten 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 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.
If you're feeling energetic you can hire a paddle-board, kayak, sailing boat or sailboard from neighbouring Cawsand beach. Here, with its safe waters, they play host to the National Hobie Catamaran championships, and the Cornish Gig Regatta. Nearby are the renowned beaches of Whitsand Bay with its fine golden sand, excellent wreck-diving, swimming and surfing facilities.
Visit nearby Mount Edgecumbe where you can enjoy the house and gardens, hire bikes, Segways or try Frisbee Golf.
Check out a list of local attractions and things to do on the Visit Cornwall website. Dartmoor is also well-worth a visit. Whilst staying at Norcot 1, try our local discovery, 7 day quiz for all-ages.
Local West Country beers and ciders are some of the finest in the country. Try some in the local pubs, all a short walk from the cottage - The Devonport Inn, The Halfway House, Rising Sun and Cross Keys.
The city of Plymouth is easily reached via the Torpoint Ferry or the Tamar Bridge. Visit Plymouth Hoe, The Barbican, National Marine Aquarium and Royal William Yard. The Cremyll Ferry, a regular foot passenger service, runs from Plymouth to Mount Edgcumbe - or in the summer, the "Weston Maid", a delightful boat trip from the Barbican at Plymouth across the Sound and landing on Cawsand Beach.
