EXPLORE THE AREA
Wringford Cottages nestle amongst the rolling hills in the centre of the Rame Peninsula just over the Tamar river from Plymouth in Devon. The "forgotten corner" of Cornwall is a peaceful and beautiful place.
The villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are a 10 minute walk from the cottages, this walk takes you to the edge of Mount Edgcumbe country park, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Cawsand is full of charm and character, the unspoiled cottages, narrow winding streets, and medieval square make it a wonderful destination for a meal or drink at one of the many traditional pubs. During the summer months, visitors can take the passenger ferry from the beach in Cawsand to the historic port of Plymouth with it's numerous waterside bars and restaurants.
A 10 minute walk in the opposite direction brings you out on Whitsand Bay, four miles of beautiful sands backed by cliffs and protected at one end by Polhawn Fort which these days offers civil weddings, and at the other by Tregantle Fort which is still used by HMS Raleigh for training purposes. The whole area is bordered by the Southwest Coast Path and is wonderful for walking. Nearby, Whitsand Bay Golf Club offers an 18 hole links golf course. Surfing, windsurfing, paddle boarding and coasteering is available at Adventure Bay Surf School based on Trenoghawk Beach, Whitsand Bay.
The Rame peninsula offers the best of both worlds - you feel as though you are in the middle of nowhere, but Plymouth lies just across the Tamar river. There you will find everything you would expect from a big city - shopping, cinemas, galleries and restaurants. Nowhere in Cornwall is too far to visit in a day, the Eden project is less than an hour away, and even Land's End is only 85 miles away.
