One of the huge advantages to our location is how easy we are to get to. We’re just an hour and 15 minutes from the M5. The majority of the journey is easy dual carriageway and all but the last mile is an A road.
We’re also just half an hour from Bodmin Parkway mainline train station, that runs to London Paddington and London Waterloo via Exeter.
And Cornwall’s Newquay Airport is just 35 minutes away, with flights to North America via Dublin or London Heathrow. There are also direct flights to many domestic airports here in the UK, including Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds and Manchester.
By Public Transport
Our nearest train station is at Bodmin Parkway, 13 miles away. Trains run from London Paddington and London Waterloo via Exeter St. Davids. We are in a rural area, so bus services are patchy but they are available, and run to Michaelstow and Leathern Bottle, which are a 10 and 20 minute walk away. You can plan your bus journey here. Alternatively you can book a taxi or arrange for car hire.
A big part of the appeal of our luxury dog-friendly holiday cottages is that they’re tucked away at the end of a farm track down a twisty Cornish lane. This confuses your average sat-nav.
So, to find us, if you have access to Google Maps please search for ‘Tredarrup Farm Holiday Cottages’ and their directions will bring you straight to your door. This is by far the easiest way.
If using GPS please note our postcode covers the whole of the neighbouring hamlet. Sat navs will therefore direct you to the centre of the hamlet which is a good quarter of a mile away. This can be frustrating at the end of a long drive so when you get close please follow the directions below. And keep your eyes peeled for the blue Tredarrup signs at the bottom of the farm drive.
If you do get a little lost, don’t worry. Give us a call and we’ll be happy to help – 01208 850018 or 07731 084908.
Directions from Upcountry - head towards Exeter...
From Exeter follow the A30 for Okehampton/Bodmin. Continue past the two Launceston turnings.
Shortly after, take the exit signposted A395 Wadebridge/North Cornwall, which will bring you to a small roundabout. Turn right, then immediately at next roundabout turn left, signposted A395 Camelford/Wadebridge. Go through Cold Northcott, past a wind farm.
Just after the little village of Davidstow the A395 hits the A39 at a T-junction – turn left onto the A39, direction Camelford/Wadebridge. Follow the A39 all the way to Camelford.
When you get to Camelford go straight through (heading towards Wadebridge), come out of town, passing the Co-op supermarket on your left hand side, then past a BP garage, also on your left hand side. Continue straight ahead on the A39, past the Bodmin turning, and straight through the village of Helstone. Carry on out of Helstone until the road goes downhill, past a left turn to Advent, and the road opens out into 3 lanes. Take the next left turn to Michaelstow – opposite the right hand turn to Trewalder (if you get to Knightsmill & Allen Valley Slate on the A39 you’ve gone too far, but you can easily turn around at this point and head back up the hill).
Continue along the narrow, windy lane towards Michaelstow for 0.9 miles until you see the Treveighan roadsign on your left hand side with the Methodist church (painted red woodwork) on your right hand side. Do not turn right into Chapel Lane at this point (despite what your satnav may tell you). Instead continue ahead and, after approx 200 metres, on your left hand side, you will see the entrance to Tredarrup (public footpath sign, stones with blue enamel signs). Come up the farm track for approx. 300 metres and through the gates to your right.
Directions From South & West Cornwall & Bodmin Parkway Train Station & Newquay Airport - Head towards Bodmin...
As you approach Bodmin take the A389 towards Wadebridge
Continue past the Borough Arms pub and the Camel Trail on your left at Dunmere then turn right onto the B3266 towards Camelford
Follow this road for approx. 5 miles passing the Cedar Croft Nursery and St. Teath turning on your left, then as the road bends to the right take the left turning straight in front of you to Michaelstow (there are signs at the entrance of this lane for Button Meats and Michaelstow Holiday Park)
Continue down the lane for approx. 1 mile. Pass Treveighan B&B sign on your left and immediately afterwards turn right up our farm track (there are blue Tredarrup signs at the turning), continue through the granite pillars and up the track for 300 yards and enter through the gates on your right.
