Getting to the Old Hen House, St Agnes


By car

The Old Hen House and Endean Farm are tucked away up a hidden track on Goonown, St Agnes.  We find that Sat Navs often take you the wrong way into the village, and you can end up lost on the new Park Kres housing development!

We suggest you follow our directions – we’ll send them to you when your booking is confirmed.  We’re less than three miles off the A30, which is the main road into Cornwall from Exeter.  In good driving conditions, it takes about 1 hr 20 minutes to reach us from the M5/A30 interchange.


By train / by bus

If you’d rather relax and let the train take the strain, then the best way to reach us is by train to Truro station.  There’s a regular train service from London Paddington via Reading, Taunton, Exeter and Plymouth as well as cross country services.  From Truro Station (and the centre of Truro) there’s an hourly bus service (87 bus) to Goonown/Goonbell. From there it’s a five-minute walk down. Alternatively, take a taxi from Truro Station for approximately £25.


By air

Did you know you can fly to Newquay, about 13 miles from the Old Hen House, with direct flights from London Gatwick (Heathrow until the end of March 2020), Manchester, Cork, Dublin, Belfast, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen? Check out your options on the Cornwall Newquay Airport website.  We recommend you book a hire car from the airport for the duration of your stay in Cornwall.
