Are we there yet?

Perfectly located in the beautiful Lyhner Valley, near the village of Rilla Mill, The Green, House and Cottages, sits in rolling countryside looking out over some of Bodmin Moor’s most striking features – like the Cheesewrings, Sharp Tor and the engine houses at Minions – as well as Kitt Hill and Caradon Hill. Both coasts are within easy reach, from the crashing surf of the north coast to the clear waters and fishing villages of the south. We’re well located for exploring all of Cornwall with the A30 and A38 in easy reach– most places can be reached within an hour’s drive.

By Road

Using GPS in Cornwall

When driving in Cornwall it is important not to solely rely on your Satnav. Whilst Satnav can often take you to exactly where you want to be coverage can be patchy and it it can be problematic if you take a wrong turning. Rural Cornwall has a network of narrow un-named lanes. Satnavs will often recalculate your route and will treat the un-named lanes as any other road and you can soon find yourself in a maze of these with high hedges and passing places.

We would always recommend that you print out some directions and have a road atlas to hand. Then if you get lost you can follow signs to the nearest village and navigate via road signs from there.
