How to get there
Lifton village is on the 510 bus route that runs between Exeter and Newquay via Okehampton, Launceston, Camelford and Wadebridge. The bus is operated by Western Greyhound and stops in Lifton 8 times a day - Monday to Saturday - and twice on a Sunday or Public Holiday. The bus stop is just outside the hotel. Visit the Western Greyhound website (www.westerngreyhound.com) for details of the 510 route and bus times.
From the M5 heading south west
From junction 31 at Exeter (and the end of the M5) take the A30 heading for Okehampton. Stay on the A30 for about 40 minutes, passing Okehampton, heading for Launceston. Leave the A30 at the Liftondown exit and follow the signs for Lifton - Hotels and B&Bs. Continue through the village, and our hotel is on your left shortly after the post office and stores. The car park entrance is immediately after the hotel building.
Take the A30 out of Cornwall. Leave the A30 at the Liftondown exit and follow the signs for Lifton - Hotels and B&Bs. Continue through the village, and our hotel is on your left shortly after the post office and stores. The car park entrance is immediately after the hotel building.
There are no train stations very close to the hotel. Exeter St David's is the better option if you're travelling from the east or 'up country' and is on the line to Penzance. It takes approximately 3 hours from London (Paddington or Waterloo), and not much more if coming from places like Manchester or Birmingham. Taxis can usually be caught outside the station, but its often cheaper if you ask us to arrange a taxi to pick you up. It's also possible to catch a bus from Exeter St David's station (see below).
Plymouth station may be better if you're travelling up from Cornwall. Again taxis can be arranged to pick you up.
