By car the route is easy. If this is your first visit to Cornwall we recommend the A30 from Exeter which is mostly dual carriageway. Leave the A30 at the Ladock exit, by Mc Donalds, and follow signs to Ladock drive through the village and at the end of the road turn right towards Truro.

At the Mercedes garage turn left onto the bypass towards St Austell.  Follow the bypass up the hill then turn right towards Tregony and St Mawes.  Stay on this road until you drive over the bridge into the bottom of Tregony. Lynwood house, where you need to pick the key up from, is the big house opposite the bridge, the entrance is behind the two road bollards.  Drive through the low walls into the drive by the Lynwood sign and go through the gate to the back of the house, which is normally left open. Please drive slowly as there are children and dogs.

In peak time the junction leading into Lynwood can be busy and crossing the road to enter the drive can be a bit difficult, you may find it easier to drive around the bollards and turn left into the drive.

Once you have your key, go back out the drive and turn right up Tregony Hill. About 100 yards up the hill you will see on your right a building with blue pillars, opposite this building there is a turning on your left that drops down and turns back on yourself. Take this road, there are normally quite a few cars parked along this bit , drive past and take the road leading to the right. Frogmore Corner is the first yellow cottage on your right.

Parking at Frogmore

There is private off road parking for one car immediately opposite the cottage. Extra visitors will find spaces in Frogmore Lane and on the main street a few steps away.

Other Information

Shopping in Truro offers all the normal excitement and is about 15 minutes away.  Waitrose has recently arrived in Truro and is brilliant, as is the adjacent Cornish food store and cafe. It is situated about 10 minutes away on this side of the town with masses of parking. Tesco’s and Sainsbury’s are also available; if you prefer Asda, go to St Austell which is a little closer.

The award winning Lobbs which is right next to Helegan Gardens is nearby.  This is worth a visit for foodies, given it has won prizes, but please note their prices too are noteworthy!

But don’t miss The Curgurrel Farm Shop on the road to St Mawes – easily the best place to buy fresh fish, crab and lobster.  The beach nearby, below The Rosevine is lovely too, so make a day of it with simple lunch at The Hidden Hut
