Guests travelling from continental Europe and other locations (by air, train or car*) may find the following site useful to plan their trip:
By car: If you are travelling from the continental Europe by car can choose to cross the channel by car ferry to Dover, Southampton or Plymouth or via the Euro-tunnel to Folkestone. Which ever route you choose we would advise to book early to get the best deal.
The tunnel journey time is just 35 minutes compared to the hour and a quarter by ferry from Calais to Dover. The ferry whilst slower, does offer a more relaxed journey with an opportunity to stretch legs, have a meal and enjoy some tax free shopping.
From Dover or Folkestone; take the M20, M26, and M25 to the intersections with either the M3 or the M4 and follow the directions from London
By air: There are several airports within easy reach of Little Cobbetts. Newquay Cornwall Airport is circa 40 minutes drive away, whilst Exeter airport is just 1¼ hour drive away. Both airports have care rental facilities.
From Wales or the North the best route is via the M5 from Bristol, to Exeter and from there the A30, A395 and A39 to Camelford.
From London and the east there are 2 options; by motorway via the M4 then the M5 to Exeter or scenic route (past Stonehenge) via the M3 and then the A303 to Exeter. From Exeter both routes carry on via the A30, A395 and finally the A39 'Atlantic highway' to Camelford.
