By car – if using satnav, you can use the postcode PL25 5QJ – however, please make sure it directs you into North Hill Park from Palace Road (next to St Austell train/bus station) and not via North Street/Menacuddle Hill. If in doubt, follow signs to St Austell railway station. The entrance to North Hill Park is off Palace Road (which runs alongside the station), next to the old signal box and green pedestrian bridge. Follow the drive parallel to the railway line until you come to a gravel area, where you can park. Ivy House is on your right.
