Getting Here

By Car

Take the A30, Cornwall’s main trunk road, from junction 31 of the M5 near Exeter to Chiverton Cross roundabout, on the outskirts of Truro. The journey from Exeter to Chiverton normally takes around 90 minutes. Upon reaching Chiverton you will take the 3rd roundabout exit, heading towards St Agnes. After 1.5 miles take the left hand turning signposted to Porthtowan. After about a mile you’ll see the sea for the first time, and then will come down a  steep hill where you’ll see signpost on your right for Porthtowan. Drive towards the beach and take the last road on the right, Sandy Road, and then first left where you’ll find the garage to park.
