Directional Note - It is recommended you follow the route towards Penzance on the A30:-

1: Take the Camborne (West) exit, turn left at the top of the exit slip road and then right at the roundabout, signposted to Connor Downs.

2: As you enter the village of Connor Downs turn left at the crossroads, signposted to Carnhell Green. Continue on this road, passing Trevaskis Farm Shop then Rosewarne Manor on the right, over the level crossing, and on into the village.

3: At the junction turn right and continue, passing the pub on the left, for exactly half a mile. You will see a double bend sign on the left, and directly ahead, on the very sharp left-hand bend, a double-fronted stone cottage with French windows (and a red post box recessed into the left side), and a tall black and white Victorian house with a palm tree in the garden to its left. Turn right immediately in front of these cottages onto an unmade lane, (this is Rosewarne Road). The wooden entrance gate to ‘The Farmhouse' is the first on the left about 100 yards further on. (NB: If you pass a large white house with a central arched window on the left – which is immediately after the sharp left-hand bend – or the big sign on the left for ‘Parbola’, you have gone too far and will need to turn around and go back).
