Turn left into Brown's Hill and almost immediately right for Tresooth Lane, it is signed as a cul-de-sac and becomes a path at the end, then turn left and first right into the very narrow Durgan Lane. At the end of this lane turn left and follow the road to the entrance, keeping alert for traffic because there is no path along this road.
