Rame Head Lookout
2.8 miles SE of Whitsand Bay
Sleeps 2 | dog friendly
Quirky house in Cornwall: Perched high on the clifftop at Rame, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with views stretching out to the iconic tiny chapel on the headland and surrounded by the sea, this is a very special coastal getaway.
Rame head lookout is positioned next door to the Coast Watch Station and from the moment you arrive you can clearly see why. This spectacular clifftop is the perfect vantage point to keep an eye on the vast ocean below. The view is a truly mesmerising. On sunny days take in the glistening waters and in the winter enjoy watching the stormy waves, crash to shore as you stay cosy by the wood-burner and watch from a front seat position. With a hot tub to soak away your worries and stylish interiors throughout your unique abode, this really is an escape to the great outdoors like never before!
The décor of this Unique hideaway echo's the sublime location. A nautical theme runs through the property to represent the National Coastguard. You'll find coastal maps, large arty compasses and colourful luxurious linens all linking to the history of this unique escape. Peek through the binoculars to keep an eye on the ever-changing scenery surrounding Rame Head Lookout.
The open plan living space is just idyllic. With a cute folding table which takes pride of place in front of the vast window, you can enjoy a romantic meal for two with the most superb back drop. If you prefer dining outdoors, then you have the idyllic place to sit and catch a few rays while you tuck into your lavish weekend brunch. The stylish wet-room is designed to reflect the Cornish cliffs. Cornish slate and rich tin seams have been incorporated into the bathroom and this theme of being by the sea flows effortlessly into your oh-so-wonderful bedroom. After a day of exploring the rugged South West Coast Path, light the wood-burner and get cosy on the sofa or hop into the hut-tub and embrace the bubbles while taking in your breathtaking location… pure bliss!
Whether you're a nature lover, you long to be a mariner, or someone who simply loves the natural beauty of the coast and countryside, Rame Head Lookout is ready to welcome you for that much deserved break.
Out and About
This beautiful corner of Cornwall is a real treasure and once discovered we are sure you will return time and time again. Pop on those walking boots and head off along the coastal path that leads direct from your door. The circular walk through the charming, twinned villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, with its pretty cottages and secluded beaches, is a great hike and more importantly a good excuse to try out one of the many pubs and cafes or hop on the ferry at Cawsand (April to October) over to the maritime city of Plymouth to discover the historic Barbican and Plymouth Hoe.
You'll need more than a day to discover all the delights on offer at nearby Mount Edgcumbe with its historic house, parkland, gardens, artisan shops, cafes and calendar of events and there are further delights to explore at Antony House and Gardens (National Trust). If you fancy a go at coasteering or surfing you can book a lesson at the Eddystone Cafe along Whitsand Bay and in nearby Looe you can join a fishing trip and bring back your catch from the day to cook up for supper.
