Welcome to Rame Conservation Trust
RCT cares for the heritage assets at Maker Heights, including 12 hectares of rare unimproved grassland, four Scheduled Ancient Monuments and the impressive Grade II* Listed Barrack Block.
The heritage assets at Maker Heights are unique, original and, at the present time, largely unaltered. Consequently, Maker Heights is of national importance, and of outstanding significance.
These assets are all vital components of the Historic Landscape and are set in the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (Rame Head AONB).
Maker Heights is also one of Cornwall’s most vibrant and independent creative clusters. Occupying the highest point of the Rame Peninsula in South East Cornwall, Maker provides affordable art and music studios, galleries and work spaces, a campsite and music venue; all surrounded by rolling hills, farmland and a postcard panoramic of Plymouth Sound.
We operate a ‘wild camping’ site with all the essentials, set in acres of natural landscape, in a quiet and rural location, on the South West Coastal Path. However, the site is still close to local shops and pubs, galleries, cafes and many attractions.
The campsite is designed with the greatest respect to nature and the intent to give campers a genuine experience of camping in the most natural way.
We are non-profit making, with all of the money received from the campsite being re-invested into to the Trust. More info and campsite booking can be found on their website.
In 2023, we are celebrating 100 years of Maker Camp.
Most recently, we have taken on the care and upkeep of Millbrook Chapel of Rest. For more upcoming updates, keep an eye out…
