We are easy to get to being in mid Cornwall - ten minutes from the A30 and just a mile from the northern (Butts Lane) entrance to the Eden Project. We are less than 5 miles from St Austell train station. We are happy to arrange transport through contacts with local taxi coach operators.
Our full address is:
Knightor Winery, Knightor Manor Farm, Trethurgy, Nr St Austell, Cornwall, PL26 8YQ
There are brown tourist signs to us on the road from Carluddon to Eden Project and our signs at the end of our lane that joins this road.
Be aware that postcodes and SatNav directions in Cornwall are not as accurate as they are in England! Though we are easy to find, Sat Navs using our postcode PL26 8YQ will send you to Knightor Close in the village of Trethurgy. From here, you are only 500 meters to the South of us and should just follow the leafy lane North out of the village. Our granite gateposts will be found on the left after you pass our Manor house.

There is a comprehensive network of national and local cycle routes in Cornwall. Routes in the local area are shown in red and green. We are a very convenient rest stop for users of the clay trail between Wheal Martyn and Eden. This route offers a 360-degree panorama providing spectacular views of St Austell Bay and the clay mines
National Cycle Route 3, which locally links Bodmin to St Austell, skirts the northern/western fringe of the Eden Project. An off-road cycle route links to Trethurgy (part of the Wheal Martyn Trail) and then a cyclist would have a short journey on the unclassified road to Knightor Manor (approximately 2km overall between National Route 3 and the site).
The Wheal Martyn Trail is one of the ‘Clay Trails’ to the north of St Austell. The extension of this trail to the west serves Carthew/Scredda. To the north the Bugle Trail links Bugle to Knightor Manor finishing with a short journey on the road network.
Highway Network – Pedestrian:
The previously mentioned cycle routes can also be used by pedestrians with the path network from the Eden project to us only making use of the public highway for a few hundred meters along a country lane.
Commuters from Trethurgy or bus service 27 will have to walk on the country lane and are advised to wear high visibility clothing.
