Directions to Puddleduck Cottage, Lerryn, Nr. Lostwithiel, Cornwall, PL22 0PT
Turn off the M5 where it splits into the A30 & A38 (Junction 31, about 4 miles after Exeter Services). Take the A30 Okehampton/Bodmin turn off and continue along the A30 for approximately 60 miles, coming off at the junction signposted Bodmin and Lostwithiel. Shortly afterwards take the left turning signposted Liskeard A38 (just after West End Motors).
Continue on to a T-junction where you turn left (also signposted Liskeard A38). At the roundabout take the first left and shortly afterwards, at the next roundabout, turn right (signposted Lostwithiel).
Continue to the next roundabout and turn left (signposted Lostwithiel), stay on this road until you come to a "T" junction (Pelyn Veterinary Surgery on the right). Turn left and proceed down the hill into and through Lostwithiel. As you come out of Lostwithiel, just after crossing over the River Fowey look for a right hand turn to Lerryn opposite the sign to Duchy Nursery. Take this turn and after about 100 metres there is a small crossroads, go straight across into Lanwithan Road, signposted St. Winnow and Lerryn. Continue along this road for 3 miles, taking care, as it is very narrow in places. Enter Lerryn over a narrow stone river bridge, follow the road round past the village shop and the Ship Inn. Puddleduck Cottage is on the right, the second cottage past the Ship Inn, the only one with a porch over the front door.
APPROXIMATELY 20 MINUTES LONGER BUT EASIER TO FOLLOW FOR THE LAST FEW MILES: Continue southbound on the M5 until it ends and merges into the A38 for Plymouth. Pass through Plymouth and over the Tamar Bridge into Cornwall. Continue on the A38. A few miles after by-passing Liskeard you come to a roundabout where you take the 2nd exit onto the A390, signposted St. Austell. Continue for about 9 miles until you see the 'LOSTWITHIEL WELCOMES YOU' sign, continue on for 200+yards looking for a sign on the left to Lerryn (opposite the sign to Lostwithiel Golf Club). Turn left and continue as described above.
