Cawsand, Cornwall

Cawsand and Kingsand are twin villages in southeast Cornwall, United Kingdom. The village is situated on the Rame Peninsula and is in the parish of Maker-with-Rame. Cawsand overlooks Plymouth Sound and adjoins Kingsand, formerly on the border of Devon and Cornwall (the border has since been moved). Once a renowned smuggling centre, the houses are now being bought up to use as holiday lets.[citation needed] Cawsand's seafront (the Bound) consists of two houses and a hotel (the Cawsand Bay Hotel and Galleon Restaurant). Cawsand is within Mount Edgcumbe Country Park. There are frequent bus and ferry services to the city of Plymouth which is three miles to the north across Plymouth Sound. The Rame Peninsula is sometimes known as being in the Forgotten Corner of Cornwall.
