Travel Tips and Directions to Carnwethers Country House


Road, Rail and Connecting Airline and Ship


 Head for Penzance using the M5 or A38, then the A30. The quay is clearly signposted and parking is available locally.


Penzance is also the nearest train station. If travelling by rail we suggest you make your flight and boat  reservations to synchronise with train arrival times. 

Air and Steamship Travel 

 Scilly can be reached from the English mainland by fixed-wing aircraft or ship.

   Isles of Scilly Travel 

handles the fixed wing air-craft and ferry services 


Air services fly directly to St Mary's airport where taxis can be picked up at the airport or booked in advance.  Flights on fixed-wing aircraft can be booked from Exeter, Newquay  and Land's End.

The Scillonian ferry departs Penzance quay at 9.15. (Please check the times yourself.) It sails directly to St Marys and takes just over two-and-a-half hours.  When arriving on the Scillonian  your bags  will be delivered right to the door for a nominal fee providing they have been  placed in the luggage container as you board the ship and they are labelled, with our Carnwethers and your Cottage address.
