About Rame

Crumbling ruins of a chapel built in the 14th-century, crown this magnificent viewpoint which is reached by a 10 minute walk from the car park adjacent to the coastguard lookout. The chapel originally had a beacon which blazed to guide ship's safely into Plymouth Harbour. This job is now done by the Eddystone lighthouse which can be seen eight miles offshore. The lighthouse was first established in the 18th-century and has a range of 24 miles.

Rame Headland can be reached via a number of walks, the most popular being the walk taking in the country park in the grounds of Mount Edgcumbe House, which suffered bomb damage during World War II. The grounds of the house, unaltered since they were laid out in the 18th-century are simply stunning with magnificent coastal views in all directions, particularly of Plymouth Sound where you can catch a glimpse of mighty Ocean going liners heading out to sea. The lane to the headland passes St.Germanus Church in the hamlet of Rame. Parts of the building date from the 13th-century and the church is noted for having no electricity - it is still lit by candles.

This lovely place is a nature lovers paradise. There is an abundance of wildlife including rare and beautiful birds to be occasionally seen and heard fluttering around their peaceful woodland habitat. In spring the woods are covered with a thick carpet of fragile bluebells with other plants appearing during the changing seasons of the year. At the foot of the headland there are two beaches, accessible only by boat. Once there, just as the headland itself, the beaches make secluded picnic spots. Many residents from Plymouth as well as tourists, pack a Sunday picnic and board the Cremyll ferry - even a few hours spent in this blessed spot is sufficient to wash away weariness and refresh the spirit.
