How to get there

From the A390 in St. Austell (the main Truro-Liskeard road) take the B3273 to Mevagissey (at the B&Q/McDonald’s roundabout). Go through the villages of London Apprentice and Pentewan. At Pentewan the B3273 climbs a long winding hill overlooking the sea on the left. Prepare to turn right as you'll soon get to the cross-roads at the apex of the hill, following signs to the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Gorran Haven.

(If you have a Sat Nav it will probably suggest you take the alternative route through Mevagissey however this is not recommended in the summer as there are often lengthy traffic queues in the narrow streets).

Assuming you turn right, then you will pass Heligan Gardens after crossing a narrow bridge and negotiating, then down a dip and around another sharpish left hand turn. A couple of hundred yards along is the right hand turn to Gorran Haven. The road into Gorran Haven descends a long hill (Bell Hill) past a triangle of green with a telephone box. At this point turn left along the very narrow Chute Lane, going past the Llawnroc pub (Cornwall spelt backwards). Cliff Road and the row of Coastguard Cottages are ahead. 3a is in the middle and there’s parking for one car outside the house.

St. Austell to Gorran Haven will take about 25 minutes.
