From A30

Come off at exit to Scorrier on B3298, start off towards Redruth and turn left just before the Crossroads Care Home, going under a railway bridge. At the crossroads go straight ahead and follow that road for 3½ miles through Carharrack and down almost to the A393 Redruth-Falmouth road. Just before that junction there is a left turn to Gwennap. After about quarter of a mile the road branches, go left across the weak bridge and straight ahead through the gateway with large granite gateposts.

From Falmouth

Take the A393 towards Redruth. About 1½ miles after Ponsanooth turn right towards Gwennap opposite the entrance to Burncoose Nursery. Go down the hill into Gwennap and across the weak bridge, and straight ahead through the gateway with large granite gateposts.

From Redruth

Take the A393 towards Falmouth. Go through Lanner and turn left just after the Fox and Hounds pub. Then turn immediately right to Gwennap, then take a left over the weak bridge, and straight through the gateway with the large granite gateposts.
