Erth Barton – Cornwall

Erth Barton is an historical, organic, ethical and riverside retreat.

It marries its medieval roots with a 21st century vision of offering the opportunity to live simply, wildly, immersed in the unspoilt natural landscape surrounded by wildlife .

Erth Barton’s position, is elevated on Erth hill, with views from large granite mullion windows over the River Lynher that snakes around both its sides. The movement of the tidal river breathes in and out twice daily bringing an ever-changing landscape and light. This place is wild! As soon as you drive onto the peninsula, you’re entering another world. Wild flowers, buzzards, skylarks, swallows, geese, egrets, fallow deer in the oak filled woodlands, and owls in the trees at night call across the river.

Erth is remote and yet, easily accessible by road and serviced by excellent rail links from London & the North

Located just over the border in Cornwall.

By Car

Use postcode PL12 4QY – don’t follow it to its end though.

Take the M5 south towards Exeter. Once past Exeter you want to get onto the A38 for Plymouth. Go past Plymouth and head towards the Tamar Bridge, go over the bridge – and you enter Cornwall.

Head through the tunnel, at the first roundabout (Carkeel) take the 2nd exit signposted Liskeard. Head up the hill for about a mile, and take the 4th left hand turn signposted Trematon.

Head through Trematon, and you will come to a V in the road at a pink house, with two options based on the width of your car – take the right hand option, bear in mind the roads now narrow – give way where possible.

Follow the road for 2 miles and you will come to Elmgate – you will know you are here as there is a yellow house in the middle of the road, with black postbox in the middle of the house -called Crossways. Take the right hand turn at the side of the house, which goes up hill. Follow this road – (FYI Sat Nav will have taken you this far), as you head up the hill, ignore SAT NAV and DO NOT turn left at any time. Continue along the road past Tredown Farm on your right hand side. You will the drive onto Erth Peninsula, marked by the white signs. Once on the peninsula, please do not drive fast, as there are animals that scare easy !. Erth Barton appears ahead of you on the hill. Drive down the road, until you come to the very end. Erth Barton has large barns in front of you. Once you arrive please park up in the front of the house.
