To get to Carmelin, take the Lizard road from Helston, (about
11 miles, and don’t take any turns off, just keep following the road
to The Lizard).
When you get to the Lizard Green and the official 30mph sign (just past a new housing development on the left) take the very first right turn. This is opposite a large blue sign for the Regent Café and you will be heading for the Smugglers fish and chip shop.
Then take the first right again (only about 50 yards on) and you will pass the public toilets on your left, and three large houses on your right (the third one painted white).
Keep going along here and it becomes a bumpy lane. About 500 yards along, you go through a double bend, then we are the second bungalow on the right. You will see our big, wooden, open gate with a small Carmelin sign on it, and our bungalow is cream painted, with a little slate chalet in the front yard.
Drive straight into the parking space, defined by the line of stones by the hedge on the left. Park here, then go up the steps in front of you to the front door and ring the bell.
If you are coming from the Coast Path, look for the large, multi-storey house at the top of the hill, and take the path that leads to it. When you reach the house (Porth Vean) keep going for a couple of hundred yards and we are next, on your left.
