How to get there
By Sea and Car.
With more cross channel ferry routes than any other region, Normandy is a real gateway to France. Aumale is ideally located for the long or short breaks by car to France, being so close to the major motorway network of the A28 /A29. The Channel crossing is easy from Dover to Calais by ferry. We routinely use the Eurotunnel service from Folkestone, which is so much quicker to access and also much nearer & easier. From Calais, the journey via the (A16), motorway is both quick and comfortable to Aumale. However, do bear in mind that from Calais there is a toll to pay of ~ 8 euros.
Or, Newhaven to Dieppe via LD lines, will save you about 30km each way, off the mileage, which was our previous preferred option being only 50mins away, and the 4hr crossing gives you a great chance to rest, especially in one of their cabins which easily accommodates families! The one draw-back with them is that they charge per person!

By Air. Fly/drive: We've now had people from Scotland (The Highlands), Norway, Canada and Australia visit us. Using Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. As a result we have now developed contacts at car-hire companies at this airport, which you may wish to use to make your choice more reliable. We'll even loan you a Sat Nav, that we guarantee will make exploring in France a breeze as all the tourist places are listed. Beauvais airport is less than 1hrs drive (53km) from Aumale. This is especially useful to people visiting us from Glasgow.
By Train:- Similarly, local trains (SNCF) go from Beauvais to Aumale. Equally, there are daily and regular links from Paris. However, We would recommend driving to the outskirts of Paris, then take the local train service (RER) to explore Paris because of the cost and time element. There are deals available, for example, that will let you use both the RER and Metro services plus visit the top 55 attractions in Paris ( for a two day pass) costing just 80 euros. We'll happily advise you of the best drive / train locations to do this. Aumale is perfectly situated on the A28 to make this just a direct drive to Paris 120km.
