BY CAR FROM THE EAST AND NORTH OF ENGLAND
Head for the Exeter junction at the western end of the M5. Then follow the A30 for Okehampton and the west. Shortly after you pass Launceston leave the A30 at the Kennard’s House junction. Then take the A395 to Davidstow. Turn left on the A39 then soon afterwards turn right onto the B3314. This will bring you down through Slaughterbridge and up to a crossroads with the B3266. Continue straight over, through Delabole and Pendoggett. You will then see St Endellion’s famous church tower on the skyline. Glebe Farm and the Stone Barn are the first buildings on the right as you enter the village and have their own parking area between them. This is reserved for authors, festival crew and disabled workshop participants. For the festival car park, turn down the lane to the right before the church and you’ll find it signposted on your left just beyond the festival site. There is limited disabled parking ideal for evening events in the two laybys on the main road beside the church.
BY CAR FROM THE WEST OF CORNWALL
Make for the A30 then follow it eastwards until the top of the steep hill above Indian Queens where the road briefly has three lanes. Turn off onto the A39 and follow the road past St Columb Major and Wadebridge. Shortly after crossing the Wadebridge viaduct you’ll arrive at a roundabout. Here you have a choice. A) Those happy with narrow, scenic lanes can continue on the A39 towards Camelford then take the sharp left hand turning besides the entrance to St Kew Golf Club and signposted St Endellion. Follow the winding lane all the way down into the valley and up the other side. You will, quite suddenly, find St Endellion church directly in front of you and need to turn right. B) More nervous drivers or larger vehicles should take the last exit off the roundabout, as if for Wadebridge then take the last exit, to the right, off the mini roundabout that soon follows. This is the B3314. Ignore turnings off to St Minver, Polzeath and Trelights. At the Polzeath turning the B3314 veers sharply to the right and will soon bring you to St Endellion, whose famous church tower you will suddenly see directly ahead of you. For the festival car park, turn down the lane to the right before the church and you’ll find it signposted on your left just beyond the festival site. There is limited disabled parking ideal for evening events in the two laybys on the main road beside the church. For Glebe Farm and the Stone Barn continue past the church and turn in at the first gateway past the left hand turning. This is reserved for authors, festival crew and disabled workshop participants.
