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 one unique and very special coastal getaway. Set next to the coastwatch station, there is a reason they pick this spot, because it's the perfect vantage point to keep watch over the vast ocean and you too can join in that watch, marvelling at that view to your heart's desire from sunrise to sunset. Take life at a gentler pace as you stroll along the winding cliff paths, linger over a leisurely lunch on the deck or enjoy a well-deserved soak in the bubbly hot tub - this is what Rame Head Lookout is all about.
Step inside and the interiors are positively shipshape with more than a nod and a wink to the fabulous setting. Coastal maps, large artwork compass, linens reflecting the setting and an obligatory pair of binoculars to allow you to keep a closer eye on the comings and goings on the water are all tied together with the yellow, blues and black colours of the National Coastguard. The cutest folding tables take pride of place at the large picture window, this is certainly the place to while away many an hour over a scrummy breakfast all rustled up in the fabulous kitchen and at the end of the day the cosiest of sofas invites you to relax in front of the toasty wood-burner, the ideal spot to relax with a hot chocolate after a bracing out-of-season coastal walk. The spacious wet-room is a triumph and skilfully designed to reflect the cliffs, Cornish slate and rich tin seams along the coastline and the bedroom is equally beautifully styled.
Whether you're a nature lover, a frustrated mariner, a bird spotter 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.
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.
