By Road
Typical journey times by car: London: 4 hours, Southampton: 3 hours Bristol: 3 hours, Birmingham 4 hours

(1) Head towards Exeter (if coming from the London or the South East, the M4 west / M5 south is the quickest way, Those coming from the South might want to head down the A303 to Exeter, but if you're starting north of the M4, head towards Bristol and pick up the M5 south there)

(2) At Exeter head towards Oakhampton, Launceston, Bodmin on the A30 (If you approach Exeter along the M5 you should continue along the motorway past the Exeter turn off and take the A30 exit some two or three miles further on).

(3) Shortly after Launceston you should take the "North Cornwall A395" exit off the A30 and head across the top of Bodmin Moor. Continue through the little village of Piper's Pool and past the oldest of Cornwall's windfarms.

(4) After around 10 miles you will reach the A39 Bude/Camelford road, turn left (Heading towards Camelford)

(5) After about half a mile, turn right towards Delabole on the B3314 next to a small white cottage. This road winds a little way through Slaughterbridge and brings you to a 'dog-leg' crossroad by the old Camelford railway station (now a Bicycle Museum - thanks to Dr. Beeching).

(6) Go straight over this junction following the signs to Delabole and then..

(7) ..take the first right turn signposted "Tintagel B3263". This road winds a little at first but daylight permitting, you should shortly get your first glimpse of the sea. Follow this road down the hill through the Prince of Wales quarry valley and down towards the coast. Continue past the left turn to Trebarwith at the bottom of the hill and up into the hamlet of Trewarmett.

(8) Once through Trewarmett you will travel for another mile or so before coming across the left turn into Treknow just before Tregatta corner (I would advise taking this route on your first visit even if you can see other roads on the map, they are typically Cornish; steep, winding, narrow and probably better tackled after settling in. Exact details of the location will be sent with your booking confirmation.
