Rame Coastal Walks in print

If you view ‘Cornwall Life’ online you will find a walk for our neck of the woods entitled ‘Rame’s Coastal Charm’, a circular route from Cawsand taking in Rame Head and finishing back in Kingsand  – find it here

The drama in the composition makes me think of scenes from Daphne Du Maurier’s books that are, of course, set a few miles down the coast.

Kingsand and Cawsand are quintessential Cornish villages, although at one time the Devon boundary went right through the border of the two and only reverted to Cornwall in 1844. Although there is not much in the way of shops, and that’s part of their charm, (Millbrook, down the road has more than enough) there is a wealth of public houses all serving good food, which means you are spoilt for choice. Another walk from these villages is the SW coastal route from Kingsand to Cremyll where you can hop on the Cremyll ferry for a ride to view the magnificent architecture of the Royal William Yard ( a huge naval victualling yard) and to sample the eateries nestling amongst the Urban Splash designed apartments. Or you could just stay on the Cornish side of the Tamar and eat at the Edgecumbe Arms (they do a good carvery on a Sunday) after a walk around the grounds of Mount Edgecumbe House where there are formal gardens, beautiful lawns, woods, cliff-top walks and views out across Plymouth Sound.

In the April/May issue of Coast magazine (out on Monday) there is an article on a “Weekend in Plymouth” where the reporter takes the said same ferry journey from the Plymouth side to Mount Edgecombe to sample the delights of Cornwall’s forgotten corner.
