Travelling to Keveral by Car from the East
1) Go through Plymouth on the main A38 (a continuation of the M5 after Exeter), over the Tamar Bridge and into Cornwall.
2) Continue on the A38 for approximately 7 miles, through the villages of Landrake and Tideford.
3) At Trerulefoot roundabout (one mile after Tideford), turn first left at the roundabout for 'Looe'.
4) After 1 mile, turn right onto the A387, again for 'Looe'.
5) Continue for 2 miles to the small village of Hessenford, and AFTER the pub on your right, turn left immediately after the bridge, on to the B3247 to Seaton.
See below for travelling from Seaton by road.
NOTE: ROAD CLOSURE SEPT 2020 - the road from Seaton to Keveral (Looe Hill) is closed, so access to Keveral is via Nomansland - see next sentence.
However, if you have a large vehicle or you are towing a trailer, you should continue on the A387 for another 2 miles before turning left at Nomansland, then follow instructions below for 'Travelling to Keveral by Car from the West'.
From central Plymouth: you can take the Torpoint Ferry over the River Tamar (from Devonport, it is free crossing into Cornwall, and the same charge as the Tamar Bridge on the return), and take the A374.
You can go the scenic way along the coast by turning left at Antony, then through the villages of Crafthole and Downderry to Seaton (small roads, not advisable for large vehicles). Or you can continue past Antony, then Sheviock and Polbathic, before taking the A387 Looe road to Hessenford, then turning left to Seaton.
This route is only advised if you are starting in, or have to go through, central Plymouth. Leaving the A38 to go this way will add at least one hour to your journey compared to staying on the A38.
From Seaton, by road
1) Entering Seaton on the Hessenford road, you will see a car park on your left. Then, just before the river and the beach, turn right up LOOE HILL (NOT Keveral Lane, also on your right, which is a narrow dead-end road).
2) Continue up Looe Hill for one mile to the top of the hill, where the road bends to the right and levels out.
3) Continue for another 300m, past houses on your left and right (Penhale Camping is on your right), and as the road turns sharply to the left, you will see the sign for Keveral on your right, and the start of the farm lane (see photo below).
Keveral Farm is half a mile down the farm lane. You pass our neighbour's house on your right, and immediately after is our car park on your right and our farmhouse in front of you.
The lane is a bit rough, but this is not a problem if you drive slowly.

1) Take the B3253 heading towards Plymouth.

3) Stay on this road for 1.5 miles, passing the turn off to the Monkey Sanctuary on your right, past Bokenver Farm on your left, and 200m further, as the road bends sharply to the right, you will see the lane to Keveral straight in front of you.

Using a SatNav
If you are travelling from the East and using a SatNav, you should go via Saltash and Widegates (NOT Plymouth and Seaton). Otherwise, you may get sent through Plymouth and over the Torpoint Ferry (adding at least one hour to your journey), and then from Seaton you may get sent up the green lane through the woods (not accessible by vehicles).
Postcode PL13 1PA. Google Maps marks this postcode at Penhale Farm, where there is a caravan site. Our farm lane begins 100m to the north of Penhale (in the Looe direction).
