Rame Cottage was in a beautiful place with gorgeous views in a very quiet and peaceful setting.
Seeing the ponies and deer right outside the property were an added bonus.
The hot tub outside was really relaxing and a great idea.
Great walks around the cliffs and the shops were not too far away (Millbrook) to buy your daily newspaper.
Overall a really great stay and would love to come back.
Have already recommended this property to friends.

How amazing that you were able to see the ponies and deer right outside the property! The hot tub outside really is a great advantage to this property - we can imagine it to be the perfect place to relax and star gaze in the evenings. We can't wait to welcome you and your return!

Please be aware that this property is adjacent to and entirely looked over by the coastal look out station manned from 9am to 6pm every day- that is men with binoculars just 10 feet away and looking out over the outside dining and hot tub area. It completely spoiled the experience for us.

The Lookout was amazing with unbeatable views. Everything we needed was on hand and the lovely hot tub was an added bonus. The coastguard volunteers next door were very friendly and a pleasure to talk to. We'd definitely recommend the place to others and we hope to visit again ourselves. We had a really fantastic time, thank you.
Mr Reece June 2023
I've seen a mix of explanations around how much guests are overlooked by the Coastguards next door . . . the fact is the Coastguards are there from 9am to 6pm (5pm in winter) every day. there are generally 2 or 3 of them. They are on 3-hour shifts. They definitely, clearly overlook the outside terrace - including the hot tub and could see inside the accommodation if they chose to - they open their window so you can also hear their conversations. As it happens, they are a lovely friendly bunch, and keep themselves busy with the task at hand. I enjoyed having them next door and never felt exposed. It's a pleasant little quirk. But people need to make an informed decision.
It's right opposite a popular tourist attraction. And has a carpark just behind it. People come and go all day - even into the early hours. Some forget to turn their car radios off, or have loud conversations as the walk past. I didn't mind too much, but assumed it was a touch more 'remote' than it actually was.
All in all, it's stunning. a 45 minute stroll to a costal village in one direction and a 20 minute stroll to coves and beaches in the other. The views across the channel are spectacular.

Beautiful location with stunning views but a complete lack of privacy due to adjoining coastguard station
Mr saunders May 2023
A beautiful place to stay for a romantic break or “get away from it all” break. Fantastic views looking out to sea and sunsets on your doorstep. Lots of nature and wildlife to see with plenty of trails to walk and hike direct from Rames Head. Say good morning to the ponies who come and say hello morning and evening whilst sitting in the garden or enjoying your morning coffee looking out over the headland from the comfort of the front room. Beaches, pubs and restaurants only a short walking distance from Rames head. Easy access to the rest of Cornwall from this location. A little less private than expected, with a working coast guard station directly next door during the day with one of their look out windows, looking directly out over the garden area.
Fantastic spot if you’re a star gazer. Very little light pollution.
Property fully equipped.
Mrs. Howland March 2023
Really enjoyed the location. Lovely walks right out the door. The wild ponies were a real highlight! Sofa is a small 2-seater, so not super comfy for relaxing inside. Disappointed that the hot tub could not be heated to an appropriate temp for cold days (probably would have booked somewhere else if we had known). Would be great in summer months.

We're so glad that you enjoyed the location and how lovely to see the ponies out trimming the grass! The hot tub temperature can be turned up or down depending on preference, please never hesitate to reach out if you need any assistance as we would love to help. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Sarah, Customer Support
Mrs Sharps March 2023
Rame head is an amazing location with fantastic views. The attention to detail on the internal decoration was beautiful. We saw a pod of dolphins with the binoculars provided. The wild ponies walking past made it extra special. We went to the halfway house pub in Kingsand which had a great atmosphere and yummy food. One thing we didn’t realise is that the hot tub is overlooked by the staff of the lookout during operating times.

How awesome must it have been to see the pod of dolphins from such a fabulous viewpoint. The station is set next to Rame Head Lookout but is only manned until early evening (5/6pm) leaving you with the evening to star watch from the warmth of the hot tub! It is worth checking out the photos and captions as they can give more information and show the landscape that the area has to offer. Donna, Customer Support.
mr shorney January 2023
The view what a place . Coast path on your door step .Wild ponies walking past even the deer came up to the fence line in the morning . And don't forget the friendly cost guards next door .Parking right by the door .Under floor heating works well and as to the little log burner great for those cold nights just after getting out the hot tub . The place is small and well thought out . Take a walk along the coastal path in to Cawsand for a spot of lunch in the bay restaurant where your dog is looked after as well as you. Further walk on to Mount Edgcombe estate for a cuppa and a bit to eat in the orangery or a pint in the pub just before the ferry . Question would we go back? yes yes and yes !
Mrs Nuttall December 2022
We had a wonderful Christmas and New Year at Rame Head, the views (on a clear day) are stunning. I sat for many an hour gazing out to sea & watching the ponies walk past. The kitchen is excellently equipped, even scales and a cake tin should you want to bake! The dishwasher was appreciated too, a luxury for me. The TV is in the bedroom, (we knew this beforehand), so took our small tv with us so we could watch a movie whilst sitting in front of the log burner. The hot-tub was fab too, we used it every day. Loads of excellent walks right on the doorstep. We will more than likely return in the future ??
Mrs Long November 2022
The location and style of this apartment can't be beaten. Simply stunning. We loved the view, the peace and quiet, and the proximity of the coast path for walking. The walk from the Lookout to Cawsand is one of the most gorgeous bits of coast path I've ever walked. We were treated to a large pod of dolphins on two days of our visit, and the superb binoculars provided really added to the sheer joy of that experience. The kitchen is really well equipped and the hot tub is delicious! The underfloor heating keeps the Lookout warm and cosy, and the wet room with wonderful large, fluffy towels is a delight.
Just a couple of things to be aware of when booking this venue:
The TV is not in the main room, it's in the bedroom.
There is very little storage at the property for bags / clothes etc. Pack light, and if you are the sort of person who likes to pack everything away, you might want to think again.
The sofa is tiny and not comfortable for two people for any length of time. If post-adventure comfort and relaxation is important, this isn't the place for you. Unfortunately it is to us, so we won't be returning - which is a massive shame.

Thank you so much for your review. We're so pleased you liked the style and location of the apartment. How fantastic to be able to see a pod of dolphins on two occasions - it really has such a great vantage point for looking out to sea. The owners have made best use of the space available but will consider changing the sofa when making updates to the property. We would love to welcome you back to another of our properties in the future. Kelsey, Customer Support
Mrs Sloan August 2022
Fabulous stay at Rame Head Lookout the cottage is lovely the location is stunning we could have spent 2 weeks there instead of 1 week. If you like to get away from the crowds, love the sea & wildlife then this is the place for you. Do not hesitate to book. Would love to come back at some point.
Mrs Van Hagen August 2022
An amazing place to stay
Miss Pollock May 2022
Beautiful cottage and location - truly magical. Stunning views and blessed with sunrise as well as sunset. Would highly recommend and would definitely book again!
Mrs Evans May 2022
What an amazing place to spend a week!
Great walks right from the door, fantastic places to eat out a short drive away. Views for miles. We had a mixed bag of weather during our week but it was fine. On the days the sun shone we walked miles, and on the days with wind and rain we curled up in the comfy bed and watched a movie and listed to the wind howl outside.
Really enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub in the evenings and on clear nights did some great stargazing, also loved watching all the ships coming and going.
The garden was completely secure and it was lovely to open up the bi-fold doors and let our dog wonder at will. He had a great time watching the ponies make their regular walks past our fence.
We loved the property and the location and are already planning our return.
Miss Baker May 2022
Amazing location with great accommodation. Jacuzzi is a must in the early morning or evening - wonderful. Ponies and deer past the window. If, like me, you are hot at night, limited scope for opening windows to get cooler air.
Mrs Brunt May 2022
Really enjoyed our stay at Rame Head. Loved the location...just the tonic for a complete break.
mr gilford April 2022
We really enjoyed our week at Rame Head Lookout. The compact accommodation suited us and our small Dog. The Kitchen is well equipped & laid out well for such a small area. The Wet room is excellent and well presented. Bedroom was just perfect. Hot Tub and wood burner worked fine. The best bits about Rame Head Lookout are the location, the every changing views. I became an expert in identifying the Navy ships going past which in these times was quite reassuring to seethe Royal Navy training! There is a huge variety of birds & wild life to see and the Dartmoor Ponies were always in view.
Mrs Bray April 2022
Rame Head is a fantastic area. I would highly recommend the coastal walks and walk to the chapel. The scenery is breathtaking and the sunsets amazing. Rame Head Lookout is quirky and we really loved the hot tub and the fact that the ponies are frequent visitors to the coast path right in front of your window. The people in the Coastguard station are very friendly and you need to forgive that they are adjacent to you if you are to enjoy the tranquility, sea views, clean air and the sheer beauty of it all. A very relaxing and therapeutic holiday. Mount Edgecumbe Park is fabulous and the quaint village of Cawsand and Kingsand are a magnificent find.
Mr Gibson April 2022
Had an excellent time here. It is an amazing place with the best location and best views. Just stunning. You are straight on to the South Coast Path for walking in either direction to Kingsand or Whitsand Bay. Horses and Deer daily walking by the front of the property. Walk to the old chapel is amazing. Coastguards being on site with you during the day was a bit weird at first, but after a day just became normal and they are great to speak too. Had a lovely time a looking to book again!!
Miss Alexander February 2022
Thank you for a nice break . A real highlight for me was the closeness of the wild ponies.
Mr Barbour February 2022
Rame head cottage is a truly wonderful experience not to be missed. Remember to take the binoculars with you when out for a walk, where you will almost be guaranteed to see the dolphins in the bay! ?? ????
Mrs Robinson November 2021
If you're looking to take walks along the coast and come back for a nice, comfy relax, then this is NOT the place for you. The seating is minimal and uncomfortable.
Great shower room, comfy bed and good heating.
Mrs Cooke November 2021
Whilst the location is great. The cottage is not practical enough for the required comfort during a holiday.

Mrs Thompson September 2021
A fantastic cosy property in a wonderful cliff top location. Views to die for with ponies walking past our window. Highly recommend!
Ms Norman August 2021
Stunning location. Beautifully furnished. Loved watching the ponies walking back and forth. Great views all around. Can be a bit breezy on top of the cliffs!
Ms Gudgeon July 2021
What a stunning location. The views, the horses, the hot tub…. Just don’t tell too many people how good it is as we want to come back!
Mrs Richardson July 2021
Fabulous location and quality of accommodation
Mr Gregory July 2021
Rame head was the perfect place to visit to unwind. Everyday my wife and I would wake up to the clear ocean views and enjoy the peace and quiet. We’d walk our dog to the old chapel and enjoy the sunset.
The local pubs and beaches were amazing, clean and friendly. We spent several afternoons relaxing in the sun, And the evenings were spent either in the hot tub with a drink or reading together on the sofa.
Excellent place to unwind, would definitely go back.
Miss Tromans June 2021
Stunning location, lovely apartment and exactly as described. Loved being able to go on coastal walks with the dog from the front door. A truly beautiful part of Cornwall and a really comfortable place to stay for a week. The view on its own would be enough but it’s topped off by the lovely rooms and facilities. I’m not sure anyone could ever get bored of having breakfast looking out on the view, or having the wild ponies outside during the sunset. Truly memorable.
