Kingsand (pictured right) and Cawsand (pictured below) are part of the Rame Peninsula that is often described as the Forgotten Corner of Cornwall. Situated just accross from Plymouth, The Rame Peninsula is surrounded by water on 3 sides, by the Rivers Tama, Lynher and Plymouth Sound.
The Rame Peninsula is a designated area of oustanding natural beauty and Kingsand and Cawsand are two small unspoilt (twin-joined by a connecting narrow street as pictured ) fishing villages that are an ideal base to enjoy fantastic walks, quite secluded beaches and beautiful scenery.
The villages have the narrow streets and small colour washed cottages that many associate with the best of Cornwall and they have won awards for the best kept villages.
As with many other Cornish villages, there are still enough shops and restaurants to cater for the people who stay in the guest houses and cottages. There is a day trip ferry to Plymouth that has a picturesque waiting shelter.
If you can drag yourself away from all of this, other attractions nearby include the grand houses of Antony, Mount Edgecumbe and Cotehele House
