A little further afield lies the world-famous Eden Project (01726 811911) and the Lost Gardens of Heligan (01726 845100).

Carry on along this road until you reach the next round about (Tollgate Roundabout) and go straight across and then take the first right signposted Edmonton (this is only a matters of seconds after leaving the roundabout). Carry on down this small road. You will pass the Quarryman Pub on your right, after this a few cottages and a few yards further take a sharp turn right and carry on down for approximately 300 yards and then take the first turning right, where you see the sign for Lowarth. You then turn immediately right in to the car park.
Nearest railway station is Bodmin Parkway. There is a regular bus service, from the train station to Wadebridge and a regular bus service from Wadebridge that passes the Royal Cornwall Showground, which is about a 15 minute walk to Lowarth along a bridle path to the Quarryman Pub and then on to the site.
