"Deran House", where I live, is very close to the A390 road between the town of Tavistock (in Devon) and the town of Gunnislake (in Cormwall), about six kilometers from Tavistock.
Coming from the east, the best starting point is the centre of Tavistock, that being the location of the Town Hall and, close by it, the Bedford Hotel.
From that point take the westward-going road marked as the A386 towards Plymouth, immediately passing the Bedford Hotel on the left.
Drive straight along that road for about one kilometer and thus reach the small roundabout on which stands the large statue of Sir Francis Drake. Turn right at that roundabout. After only about 100 meters you will reach a further small roundabout and turn left there, marked as the A390 towards Gunnislake and Callington.
Continuing along that westward-going, up-and-down, very winding, road for about four kilometers, you will reach a medium-sized roundabout exactly at the top of the hill before the road begins to descend towards the River Tamar and the wilds of Cornwall. At that roundabout, you need to turn right (northwards) along the road marked to the village of Chipshop.
Then, only about 100 meters from the roundabout, on the left-hand side, you will see, on the left, the gate to Deran House (showing as a blue name board). Drive straight in. There is plenty of space for car parking.
