If arriving by car, from the A30 follow signs for St Ives A3074 and the brown sign for St Ives Bay Accommodation. You will drive through Lelant and up into Carbis Bay. When you pass the Costcutter shop on the left in Carbis Bay, keep going. You will pass the turning for Polmennor Drive on the left-hand side and we are 200m further on the same left-hand side. Our driveway is immediately after the Oystercatcher signpost in front of the house. Please reverse park.

If travelling by train, although Carbis Bay is the nearest station, it is a 15-minute walk up a steep hill to Oystercatcher that would be difficult with heavy luggage. We recommend that you alight at St Erth on the mainline from London Paddington to Penzance and take a 5-minute taxi ride; or take the beautiful scenic branch line from St Erth to St Ives and take a taxi from there.

Newquay airport is approximately a 50-minute drive away and Exeter airport is approximately 3 hours away by car.
