ALL PROPERTY DESCRIPTIONS CONTAIN POST CODES FOR YOUR SATNAV.

A WORD OF WARNING ABOUT USING SATNAV IN CORNWALL - there are lots of single track roads, often hilly with blind corners. Your satnav will direct you along the shortest route which is not always the quickest. It is still a good idea to refer to an old fashioned map and stick to larger roads where possible.

DIRECTIONS TO TREBARWITH STRAND, TREBARWITH VILLAGE, TREWARMETT, TREKNOW, TREVILLICK AND TINTAGEL (see bottom of page for Boscastle) -

Enter Cornwall on the A30.

Bypass Launceston then Trebursye and Tregadillett.

At Kennards House, take the North Cornwall exit onto the A395.

The A395 is about 10 miles long. At the end turn left onto the A39 signposted for Wadebridge and Camelford.

Keep on the A39 for just over a mile then turn right onto the B3314 signposted for Delabole, Tintagel and Port Isaac.

After a mile and a half you come to a cross roads, go straight on here (signposted for Delabole, Port Isaac and Tintagel).

After about 200 yards, take the right turn onto the B3263 signposted for Trebarwith Strand, Tintagel and Boscastle.

Stay on the B3263 for about 2 miles.

FOR TREBARWITH STRAND AND TREBARWITH VILLAGE -

At the bottom of the hill take the left turn to Trebarwith Strand.

EITHER (TREBARWITH VILLAGE)

Continue about ¾mile and take the left turn at the small X roads for Trebarwith Village. Go up the steep narrow lane about half a mile to the village and Highdown is on your right.

OR (TREBARWITH STRAND)

Continue for about a mile and you come to the Strand. Properties appear in this order -

Cumbrae House (right hand side)

private road to Overseas and Little Ruffo (right hand side)

FOR TREWARMETT -

Curlews (left hand side)

FOR TREKNOW -

Continue through Trewarmett and another mile brings you to Tregatta. Turn left signed for Treknow. Properties appear in this order -

Martha's Harbour (left hand side on bend through blue gate)

Trelake Lane (left hand fork) to -

FOR TREVILLICK -

Continue through Trewarmett and another mile brings you to Tregatta.

Take the left hand track in Tregatta signposted for the Youth Hostel. Penhallick House is quarter of a mile on your left.

FOR BOSCASTLE -

Continue through Trewarmett and another two miles bring you to Tintagel. Go down the hill past the school on your right and turn right at the mini-roundabout toward Bossiney and Boscastle.

Continue for 3 miles heading east from the mini roundabout through Bossiney and Trethevy until you come into the top of Boscastle.
Just before you approach a sharp left hand bend to take you onto the road to the harbour you will see Potters Lane on your left – next to a house with large overhanging eaves.

Mount Pleasant is about 150 yards along here on your left and you can see the house as you approach.

Park outside to unload but the lane is a little wider just before the house and you may prefer to park up there.

PLEASE NOTE – this is the way I would travel to Boscastle. Maybe you will approach from the B3263 heading west and come past the petrol station to the junction. Go left here (almost straight on) and Potters Lane is a short way on your right. Or you may come in via the harbour in which case proceed towards Tintagel until you get to the top of the hill and the right hand bend when Potters Lane will be a little further on your right.
