Location description from owner
The England region
• The only park on the rame peninsula 'Cornwall's Forgotten Corner' overlooking the sandy beaches of Whitsand Bay
• Just a few miles west of the maritime city of Plymouth and east of Looe
• Ideally situated on the Devon/Cornwall border surrounded by ancient fishing and smuggling villages.
• Whitsand Bay Holiday Park situated on the Devon/ Cornwall border , just a few miles west of Plymouth and east of Looe. Hidden in the eastern corner of Cornwall the holiday park enjoys stunning and contrasting views in all directions. Breathtaking sea views across the 4 mile sweep of coastline accompany spectacular countryside views across the Tamar estuary, Plymouth against the spectacular backdrop of Darmoor
• The area is particularly attractive to families who enjoy the outdoors. You will see surfers along the beach at all times of the year. Divers exploring the local wrecks of HMS scylla and theJames Egan Layne. Fishing off the rocks at Rame, and coarse fishing from a nearby lake. Walkers exploring the coastal paths. Cyclists enjoying the lanes and local roads. Paragliders use the adjacent hill to launch.
• The nearest beach to the park is Tregonhawke beach which is a 10 minutes walk down ( 20 minutes back up!) via the cliff path
• The Rame Peninsula area is totally unspoilt and quite unique, sometimes referred to as Cornwall's 'forgotten corner' with its winding lanes, small villages and amazing views. Within a 10 mile radius there is so much to see and do for all the family.
• The area is steeped in history , being popular for centuries for fishing from the local villages, and the beaches of Whitsand Bay were the landing place of choice for local smugglers out of Cawsand , Looe and Polperro, due to its remote location. Stories of the tales of local smugglers and the revenue men are told to this day .
• Come and see for yourself, and discover this hidden gem of South Cornwall
Cremyll is a port located on Plymouth Sound with a waterside pub, the Edgecumbe Arms, a well known boat building yard and a ferry to Plymouth. The ferry itself has a history dating back to 1204 when it was first documented in the ownership of the Valletort Family. Nearby is the Country Park below
Mount Edgcumbe Country Park offers Grade I Cornish gardens which are open to the public. There is also a fine Country house also open to the public Easter through the summer season. Originally built by Sir Richard Edgcumbe of Cotehele in 1547-53 it has undergone some restoration. The house is now beautifully furnished with family possessions, including paintings by Sir Joshua Reynolds, Gerard Edema and William van der Velde, Irish bronze age horns, 16th century tapestries and 18th century Chinese and Plymouth porcelain.
The Earl's Garden was created beside the House in the 18th century. Ancient and rare trees including a 400 year old lime, a splendid Lucombe oak, and a Mexican pine are set amidst classical garden houses and an exotic Shell Seat. Colourful flowers and heather grace the re-created Victorian East Lawn Terrace, which has spectacular views over Plymouth Sound.

- Very Good
“Very welcoming, relaxing and comfortable place.”
We used sea view lodge for a couple of nights while attending a wedding at the nearby fort. The lodge was really nice with all the facilities we needed and in a great location, close to a great little beach. Debbie was really helpful and provided loads of helpful info for us before we left and during our stay.
Owner's reply: We were happy to find a local taxi firm for you to enable you to plan your time in our Lodge. So glad you felt at home as it was a long way for you to come for a short stay. Many thanks for your kind words and we hope that you will have time to return for a longer stay someday.
“Wedding party accomodation”
Excellent place to stay, 3 bedrooms,2 bathrooms, large lounge kitchen diner with lots of space to wonder around with out being on top of each other. Great deal better than many hotels as you have the flexibility to come and go as you please. The lodge is very well equipped to cater for 6 adults in comfort. Would recommend this accommodation to anyone.
Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your kind words. We are always pleased to have considerate guests and trust that you will return in the future.
