Budock Vean Hotel, Mawnan Smith, Cornwall, TR11 5LG

It takes around five hours to get from London to the heart of Cornwall where Budock Vean is located. Drive along the M4 motorway from London, or M6 from Manchester, and then the M5 to Exeter and finally either the A30, that is mostly dual carriageway, or the A38 through Plymouth and Saltash. Alternatively if you enter Cornwall from North Devon, there is the scenic Atlantic Highway A39 through Bude which you can join from Junction 27 on the M5. Due to the high volume of traffic on Cornwall's roads during the summer months the main A30 route before Bodmin can become congested especially at weekends. Travelling overnight or outside peak rush hours is recommended to avoid long delays.

Once you get to Truro take the A39 to Falmouth. On the A39 about 4 miles before Falmouth on the outskirts of Penryn you will pick up the brown tourist information road-signs for Glendurgan and Trebah gardens.

Follow these signs through the village of Mawnan Smith, taking the right hand fork at the Red Lion Pub, and continue past Glendurgan and Trebah Gardens.

After a further ½ mile round a sharp bend to the right you will find the entrance to Budock Vean Hotel.
