About the neighbourhood
The picturesque villages of Kingsand & Cawsand boast family friendly beaches in a sheltered bay, the more adventurous may prefer the more rugged Whitsand Bay, a short drive away. The Coastal Path starts at the Cremyll Ferry winding its way through the 800 acre Mount Edgcumbe Park. This can be continued through Cawsand and up to Penlee point and Whitsand bay. The view restaurant is an ideal spot for relaxed lunch or supper with fish sourced from local suppliers with one of the finest views in the country. If you are feeling adventurous continue to Whitsand Bay hotel for cream tea. Inland, the villages of Millbrook, St John, Sheviock and St Germans are all well worth a visit, as is Antony House.
Getting around
You can take the Cremyll ferry across the bay to Plymouth.
