Cremyll (play /ˈkrɛməl/) is a coastal village in south-east Cornwall, United Kingdom. It is situated approximately one mile (1.6km) west of Plymouth[1].

Cremyll is on the Rame Peninsula facing Plymouth Sound. The Cremyll Ferry carries foot passengers and cyclists from Cremyll to Plymouth. The ferry may well date back to the Saxon's arrival in the eighth century and it was a link in the main southern route into Cornwall until the 1830s. There was a larger community here called West Stonehouse (compare with East Stonehouse) until it was burnt by the French in 1350. In medieval times the ferry was part of the manor of Stone-House, held by the Valletorts.[2]

The main gates to Mount Edgcumbe Country Park and Mount Edgcumbe House are located in Cremyll.
