Lower Marsh Farm is situated on the outskirts of the small village of Landulph, right on the shores of the River Tamar that runs down the border of Devon and Cornwall.

The Farm strikes the perfect balance of being in the depths of the Cornish countryside whilst being easy to reach by our excellent rail and road connections.

Travelling by Road

For GPS Sat Navs, our postcode is PL12 6NG, however we recommend following the directions below.

From M4 /M5:
Take the M4 or A303 to reach the M5 at Exeter.  Go past Exeter and leave the M5 on to the A38 (sign posted to Plymouth). Stay on the A38 towards Plymouth or Liskeard. Go past Plymouth, over the Tamar Bridge and through the tunnel after it. Note that both the bridge and tunnel are 30mph zones.

After the tunnel, you will reach Carkeel roundabout. Turn right at the roundabout, which is the 3rd exit.  You’ll almost immediately reach another roundabout (a large Waitrose will be on your right hand side).  Go straight over and continue straight on the A388.

Follow the road for about 5 mins and through some small villages – Carkeel then Hatt.  You will go past several roundabouts and past the Cardinals Hat Inn then a Pasty Shop (will be signed).

You will see a right turn sign posted to Landulph a few hundred yards or so after the Pasty Shop, take this road. At the T-junction, turn right and follow the road through Landulph – please drive slowly through the village. After leaving the village (road is marked as a dead end), you will go past Landulph Church on your left and at the bottom of the hill a yellow cottage will be straight in front of you.

Turn right immediately in front of the cottage and follow the road round.  You will see a sign along the drive welcoming you to Lower Marsh Farm.  This is the entrance to our driveway so follow it around to the courtyard.

From North Devon / Cornwall (A30):
At Launceston take the A388 south towards Callington and Saltash. After coming through Callington, after a few miles you will go through a small village called St Mellion. Keep on the A338 over the roundabout leaving St Mellion and approximately 1 mile further on take the left turn sign posted  to Cargreen and Landulph (and Pentillie Castle).  Keep going straight along this windy road for approximately 3 miles (you will go through Landulph village and then the road will be marked as a dead end).  You will go past Landulph Church on your left and at the bottom of the hill a yellow cottage will be straight in front of you.

Turn right immediately in front of the cottage and follow the road round.  You will see a sign along the drive welcoming you to Lower Marsh Farm.  This is the entrance to our driveway so follow it around to the courtyard.

Travelling by Train

  • Fast services run from London Paddington to Plymouth (~2 hours 50 minutes)  although it is best to book in advance to get cheaper seats.  A taxi from Plymouth will cost around £20 – £25.
  • Slower services run to Saltash (which is nearer to us).  A taxi from Saltash will cost around £10. Cotton Taxis provide a reliable service.

Travelling by Air

We can help arrange transport from and to the airports if required either via taxi or mini-bus depending on the number of people. For more information, please contact us.

Travelling by Public Transport

Landulph does not have any public transport directly to the village itself. The closest options are buses that go along the A388  and stops at Ellbridge Turn and Hatt Bus Shelter. The buses that stop here go to Callington, Saltash and Plymouth. From these stops it is about 3 miles to Lower Marsh Farm. You can arrange for a taxi to travel between the farm and the bus stops from Cottons Taxis (who are based in Landulph village).

Bus timetables can be found here. From Saltash and Plymouth there are many train travel options, to for example, St Austell (for the Eden Project). Ask us for advice on public transport options and sights to be seen!

There are a number of stunning train journeys that can be undertaken from nearby including the Tamar Valley Line (from Plymouth to Gunnislake).
