This is one of our favourites.
Located on the Rame peninsular just south of Plymouth this great site is built in an old fort. It is at the opposite end of the bay to Looe. When the tide is out there are miles of golden sands! Access to the beach is not suitable for anyone who struggles walking, or with hills/cliffs!
The fort and tunnels surround you when you stay here, and the history abounds. The original gun bases still exist and you can park right next to them. The site has a great indoor heated pool as well as The Vaults bar and restaurant. There is a cafe adjacent to the pool with a shop for basic provisions.
This is also an amazing wedding venue. You can, if the weather allows, get married in the wooden gazebo, with some of the best coastal views in Cornwall.
Not only is this a great place to take the Motorhome, but there is also a lodge complex, with many of them for rent. In the area there is so much to do for all ages!
Mount Edgecumbe House is on the peninsula with its stunning grounds an artisan workshops and galleries.
Plymouth is just over the Torpoint Ferry (or the Tamar bridge) with its large shopping centre, theatres and bars. There is a bus that will take you from Whitsand Bay Fort to Plymouth. Also local to the area is the fishing town of Looe as well as the the beautiful villages of Kingsand and Cawsand.
Throughout the year they host various hidden heritage events and re-enactments within the fort that are well worth a visit. The ghost tours on Halloween are great fun if a little scary.
A further update on this one when we visit again in February 2016.
