Even though we are in the middle of everywhere, Little Menherion can be a little tricky to find. Here are some options to help you track us down:
Entrance to lane: ///surfacing.dimension.breakaway
Little M Entrance: ///relaxed.shapeless.widely
Log Jam location: ///wordplay.suspended.dimension
Round n Round location: ///skinny.stammer.owls
The nearest station is 3 miles away at Redruth. It is well served by the main line Penzance to London Paddington route. A taxi from the station will cost ~£15. It will take you about 90 minutes to walk (it has been known!)… if you do choose to walk do ask us for some tips to get you off the road and onto some lovely footpaths.
By Car with tech
We are 3 miles south of Redruth and if you enter “Little Menherion” into google maps it should bring you directly to our gate. Sat Nav with our postcode TR16 6NW will get you to The Golden Lion or maybe the beginning of our lane, so not fool-proof… give us a call if you can’t find us
By Car without tech
Alternatively if you don’t have SATNAV, follow our preferred route when coming Southbound on the A30 …
As you enter Cornwall by car, from whichever route, you will find yourself on the A30 heading for Redruth.
A mile after Chiverton Cross (where A30 meets the A390) take the exit signposted SCORRIER A3047.
Continue straight, passing under the railway bridge.
Turn right at next mini roundabout. (You’ll pass a petrol station on your right after 200m)
Go left at next roundabout onto A393 (The Original Factory Shop is on your left).
Go left at the next roundabout onto Sandy Lane.
Next is a double mini roundabout. Go straight over at 1st then left at 2nd. (You’re still on A393 heading for Falmouth)
Go left at next roundabout.
After 300m take the narrow turning into “Tram Cross Road” (There’s a big circular metal building on your left and a B&B on your right just after you turn in here – Take care it is easily missed! If you do just take next right and re-join Tram Cross Road by turning left at T junction)
After about a mile you will come to a T junction – go right.
After another 1/2mile at the next T junction go left. (Here you pick up 1st sign for the Golden Lion Inn)
Follow this road without turning off and you will reach the Stithians Reservoir, and after crossing the causeway, The Golden Lion Inn will be on your left.
Keep going for another 400m passed the pub (Look out for a tree on left that looks a bit like Marg Simpson)
Turn right up an unmade straight lane, it’s 2nd right after Golden Lion. What3words: ///surfacing.dimension.breakaway is the start of the lane. You’ll know you are on the right track if there are farm buildings on left as you go up the hill. NOTE: You have missed the turning if you reach the entrance to Menherion Barton Farm on your right. In which case turn around, head back towards the Golden Lion and take 1st turning on left
Follow the track for ~½ mile up hill, around an s-bend and back down into a dip.
You’ll see lots of giant coloured tyres, planted with shrubs on your right .
You have reached your destination (what3words: ///relaxed.shapeless.widely)
Welcome to Little Menherion 😅
