The A30 is the best route to Ivory Cottage

How to get here from Exeter

At the M5 Junction 31 take the A30 (not the A38) heading West towards Oakhampton (22 mls). After Oakhampton, you will pass junctions for Launceston (about 16 mls from Oakhampton) then Bodmin (about 20 miles from Launceston) and after about 12 mls you will pass Macdonalds on your right on a dual carriageway at Fraddon, turn left at the next roundabout signposted Truro A39. From Macdonalds to the roundabout is about 4.5 miles. You will have travelled about 80 miles from Exeter by this time.

Drive for about 5.5mls until you see Allied Carpets & MFI on the right and at the traffic lights turn right (A39). Follow this road over 2 roundabouts until you reach the sign for Falmouth A39 at a double roundabout. Turn left towards Falmouth.

Stay on this road, going over a couple of roundabouts, until you reach another double roundabout signposted Redruth A393 and turn right. You will also see a sign for Stithians. Follow this road through Ponsanooth until you see a petrol station on the right. Just past it is a turning on the left to Stithians. Take this turning and look out for Stithians Boarding Kennels on the right.

About 150 metres further on is a right turn signposted to Trewithen Moor and Redruth. Take this turning. Follow the winding road (do not turn right or left off it) until you come to a 'T' junction with St Stythians Church opposite. Turn right.

You will come to a SLOW sign on the road after about 1/2 to 3/4 mile, then look out for the place name, GOONLAZE. Just before this sign there is a very sharp left turn on the bend and a sign for Stithians Dam. Take this turning.

Follow the road for about 300M and you will pass a farm track called Carnsiddia on the left. Immediately after it, a lane veers off to the left. You should see our nameplate on the wall - 'Carncrees Farm'. Follow the lane for 100M and you are there! Park at the foot of the steps to the left of the main house.
