Groceries for your holiday
We are frequently asked about the most convenient supermarkets for East Trenean Farm.
If you are intending on visiting a supermarket before arrival, there are probably 3 good options.
Sainsbury’s (superstore), Plymouth.
Sainsbury’s (post code PL3 6RL)
On the A38, on the outskirts of Plymouth.
There is a filter for the A379 (Torpoint) and superstore. If you take that filter off the A38, it will lead you down the hill to a very large roundabout and Sainsbury’s is the second exit.
You can then get back onto the A38 (signposted toward Liskeard) and follow the directions you have to East Trenean Farm.
Waitrose. (post code PL12 6LD)
Continue on the A38 past Plymouth in the direction of Liskeard. Go over the Tamar Bridge (as per instructions), up the hill and turn right at the first roundabout (A388) signposted to Carkeel. Then right at the next roundabout and there is a large Waitrose on your right.
Again, it is easy to get back onto the A38 (toward Liskeard) and continue to follow our driving instructions to East Trenean Farm.
Morrisons. (post code PL14 3PR)
Finally, there is a very large Morrisons in Liskeard. If you carry on along the A38, NOT turning off toward Looe (as indicated in our driving directions) and follow the A38 to Liskeard.
Take the filter for Liskeard, then turn right at the first and second roundabouts and left at the third, you will see the supermarket on your left.
To return to us, follow the signs back towards Plymouth (A38) and then take the right hand filter for Looe about a mile later. Follow this road through Horningtops and eventually take the left hand turn towards Hessenford and Widegates. Drive past the school and turn left at the end of the road. Follow this road through Widegates until the t-junction at the end. Turn right and we will be the third driveway on your left.
Tredinnick Farm Shop
We have a local Farm shop (less than a mile away) and they have a good selection of quality Cornish and local produce. You can also order from them on-line before your holiday and have the food delivered to you following your arrival - use the link below...
We also have some smaller shops nearby, but these will have less choice and are probably not the right place to go for (say) a week’s shopping. They include;
a Co-Op and Quayside Fresh both in Looe (3 miles away)
You can of course arrange for a supermarket delivery direct to your barn. Sainsbury's, Asda, Tesco and Waitrose will deliver here. If you choose to do this, please be sure to tell them which barn you are in and arrange a time for after your expected arrival ! It is also helpful if you let us know about the arrival as we may need to direct the driver.
