Our Location

The Lodge is well situated being a mile from Cornwall's largest village, Millbrook and a mile from the village of St John in the other direction. Although The Lodge is tucked away in a secluded location it is just 4 miles from the Torpoint Ferry. This is a chain ferry which crosses the River Tamar and connects Cornwall with Devon. However, many visitors by-pass the ferry and enter Cornwall via the Tamar Bridge which is approximately 14 miles away.

The Rame Peninsula

The Forgotten Corner
The Rame Peninsula or “The Forgotten Corner”, as it is known locally, is just across the River Tamar from Devon. It is bordered on three sides by water, the Rivers: Lynher, Tamar and Plymouth Sound. It comprises of the villages of Antony, Cremyll, Kingsand, Cawsand, Millbrook, St.John, Sheviock, Wilcove, Crafthole, Downderry, Portwrinkle, Seaton, Whitsand Bay and Torpoint as the postal town. The Rame Peninsula is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and here you will find a haven of peace and tranquility.
The Lodge is perfectly situated for weddings both at Polhawn Fort (less than 10 minutes by car) and Freathy Farmhouse (5 minutes by car) and HMS Raleigh for passing out parades (a 5 minute drive). Also very well located for trips to the beach which is just a 5 minute drive.
The Rame Peninsula is an area of great natural beauty, with quiet secluded beaches, magnificent scenery and spectacular walks. The Coastal Path starts at Cremyll and winds its way through the 800 acre Mount Edgcumbe Park (the house is also well worth a visit) and across the Minadhu to the villages of Kingsand and Cawsand. These historical fishing villages are unspoilt by time and here you will find colour washed old cottages, narrow streets, pubs, restaurants and shops catering for your every need. Frequent winners of the Best Kept Village award and a conservation area set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the villages are an artist’s dream. Used as a safe harbour for centuries, Cawsand Bay offers the perfect place to drop anchor and is popular for swimming, windsurfing and water skiing. From these villages the coastal path takes you to the edge of the sea and cliffs past Penlee Point and Rame Head with its 11th century monks’ chapel and stunning views to the glorious sandy beaches of Whitsand Bay.
Inland the villages of Millbrook, with its lake, shops and pubs, St. John, Sheviock and St. Germans, with the Port Eliot Estate, are all well worth a visit, as is the National Trust 18th century property, Antony House, with its gardens sloping down to the Lynher River, near Torpoint.
For the more active, coarse fishing and sea angling are very popular and bass, wrasse, pollock or mackerel are readily caught from the rocks. Bird watchers might be lucky enough to see buzzards circling overhead, peregrines swooping past the cliffs or cormorants fishing. If you fancy a spot of golf, then Portwrinkle is the place to head with its 18 hole golf course overlooking the bay. For more hustle and bustle, just a little further afield are Looe and Polperro.
This is the “Forgotten Corner”, an oasis of calm where your stay will be a truly unforgettable experience.
