Driving directions from A30
Take the A30 west following signs for Redruth/Camborne/Penzance.

• When you reach a T junction (opposite a stone gateway), turn right onto the B3280 (Praze Road) to Leedstown (1.5m)

• At Leedstown turn left (in front of the Duke of Leeds Pub) onto the B3302 which you follow for about 5 miles until you meet the A394 Penzance to Helston road.

• Turn right towards Penzance and first left. Small un-named lane

• Take the first proper left turn (under telephone wires) and follow this narrow country lane for ¼ mile or so and take the first right turn. 

• Head down the hill and we are the 2nd and 3rd entrance on left. Signed - Lanner Vean Barns or Lavender Barn.

Take the A30 East and follow signs for Helston.

At the third roundabout (outside Penzance) the A30 will go left to St. Ives but you should continue straight on to Helston (A394).

Follow this road for about 10 miles. After Breage you follow the road down through a sweeping left hand turn and there are signs for the turning to ‘Ancient Harbour’ of Porthleven.

Turn right to Porthleven.

After you enter the 40mph zone, take the first left hand turn (Tolponds Road).

Drive up the hill with houses on your right and fields on your left.

At the top turn left and after ¼ mile you come to a left hand bend with a long low barn and other buildings almost straight ahead of you.
