Start on the bridleway leading up a concrete drive to the left of the main farm house (signed to the office). Continue ahead on the bridleway as it becomes an unmade lane just beyond the office. Follow it up hill across fields then through a left hand bend towards a bungalow and house (great views to your left towards the Looe Valley, East and West Looe and the sea beyond).
TURN RIGHT on a metalled lane when you reach it, then ahead through the sign for Tredinnick. A short way further on TURN LEFT onto a metalled lane signed to Tredinnick Farm and as a no through road. Follow the lane past a house on your right, then towards farm buildings. Keep to the main track past an 'unsuitable for motor vehicles' sign (to the left of modern barns). The lane is then unmade and leaves the farm slightly downhill at first. Follow the track as it bends right as indicated by a yellow arrow marker (don't go ahead through a six bar metal gate). A short way further on go ahead through a five bar wooden gate with a sign 'please keep gate shut beware cattle'. The lane now steadily descends for some distance to reach a stream.
Just before you reach the stream the track passes through a gate (broken down when we walked) with a stile on its left hand side. TURN RIGHT on a clear track away from the stream (don't cross the stream or go ahead over a stile). Follow the track uphill then KEEP LEFT at a fork and follow it until you are close to the stream again. TURN RIGHT on a clear track marked as a public bridleway (do not cross the stream). After a short distance TURN LEFT onto a forest track as indicated by a blue arrow marker. Follow the track all the way to a metalled lane – passing a wooden barrier just before you reach it (do not turn left across the stream part way along as indicated by a blue arrow marker – stick to the track as indicated by the yellow arrow).
TURN RIGHT along the lane – keep your dog under CLOSE CONTROL as it is very narrow in places. Follow the lane steadily uphill for some distance, then through the sign for Duloe and until you reach a T-junction with the B3254. There are public toilets and a 'phone box almost opposite the junction (SX 23364 58595) – and a post office and shop just to the left. TURN RIGHT and walk on the pavement on that side of the road. Just before the church note a sign for Duloe Standing Stones pointing up a track between houses on the left of the road. We diverted the short distance to visit the stones and to read the information board. KEEP AHEAD past the church and over a road (going to the right) with a war memorial in the centre of the junction.
TURN RIGHT (more-or-less ahead) onto a metalled lane as the main road bends hard left. Follow the lane, signed to Tredinnick Farm (with an old 'bus shelter' just in the lane on its right hand side). Follow the lane past houses on left and right, then past a metalled lane signed to Tredinnick Farm on your right (used earlier in the walk). 80 metres or so further on, as the lane bends right TURN LEFT onto a track just in front of a house named Penreth and follow it back to Treworgey self catering holiday cottages.
