Directions

When you reach Penzance stay on the A30 and follow the signs for Land's End. Approximately 3 miles outside Penzance take the left turn signposted to the Minack. Drive through St. Buryan and continue (watching out for the hairpin bend!) until you see a left turn signposted to Porthcurno. Drive down into the valley - Zodiac House is the white building on the righthandside just past the Porthcurno Hotel. There is a gate across the entrance - for loading and unloading purposes only it is possible to drive through this gate. To find Stargazey go up the stone steps at the back of the development and turn left - the entrance is just beyond the wooden stairs. The car park is opposite the apartments and the allocated parking spaces are to the left and right of the post marked "8".
