Everything said by the last review (Chris W) is echoed and agreed with whole heartedly! Rame Barton was exceptional and gave more than we had ever expected. My partner and I were attending a wedding at nearby Polhawn Fort and this was the perfect place within reach, just 10mins stroll away on foot. Karen and Paul are the two most loveliest people you could ever meet. We had originally booked the B&B but Karen so generously upgraded us to one of their self catering apartments (the Whitsand) which provided more than enough space for two! A wonderful room facing the front but you could still catch a glance of the sea to the left, a large double room made more comfortable by the luxurious bedding and decorated with period white vintage furniture. A twin bedroom also found use for the excess luggage! The lounge was perfect; large and roomy tastefully decorated throughout with lovely handcrafted ornaments and contemporary paintings. Comfortable snug sofas were an added bonus along with a good sized dining table. After exploring the nearby countryside and villages, the large separate bath/shower room provided a much need pampering with a hot bath; perfect end to any evening. The breakfast room was picture perfect, once again tastefully decorated with vintage and retro pieces to make you feel right at home. In addition to various choice of cereal, Karen also catered for any type of breakfast; full english, continental (freshly baked croissants), eggs on toast however you liked them and freshly laid that morning(!) to endless quantities of freshly brewed tea or coffee and delicious cold orange juice. Great on a warm sunny morning, with the option to have it on the veranda if so desired.
The villages of Kingsand-Cawsand were approximately 10-15mins walk away, there is only the one road from Rame Barton leading down to them so little chance of getting lost but great opportunity to take in the magnificent views. Both villages have plenty of choice for food and drink from several traditional pubs/catering inns to beach harbour cafes for the quintessential cornish cream tea!
We absolutely loved our stay, the only drawback our holiday there was too short! Thank you to Karen for your wonderful warm welcome and hospitality and to Paul whose pottery studio is worth a visit and whose knowledge of all things art and design was awe-inspiring!
We will definitely return one day and would encourage others seeking a peaceful getaway to a remote part of Cornwall with breathtaking views of the sea, to look for Rame Barton; it should be at the top of your list for places to stay!
