How does one get here?

Getting to Scorrier House couldn't be simpler. The nearest train stations are:
Redruth Train Station - 10 minute taxi ride
Truro Train Station - 15 minute taxi ride
Or by car, simply follow the directions on the map or use the address Scorrier, Redruth TR16 5AU for Sat Nav. SAT NAV often gets it wrong to Scorrier house, so once you get close, simply look for festival signs and head for the main entrance.
