How to get there
<BR>DIRECTIONS TO DRIFTWOOD<BR>Please be aware that as you get closer to Seaton SatNav's may take you an alternative route which does involve some very narrow country roads, where there are few passng places. This is the route we recommend:<BR><BR>Coming from Plymouth along the A38, follow signs to Looe. At the Trerulefoot roundabout, take the first exit to Looe onto the A374. After approximately a mile turn right to Looe and Seaton Valley Country Park on the A387. At the village of Hessenford turn left (opposite the Copley Arms Pub) and follow the valley road into Seaton (B3247). <BR><BR>
