Travel from Exeter Airport or Newquay Airport

There are regular direct fights from Amsterdam (Flybe to Exeter), Berlin (Eurowings to Newquay) and connecting flights from other UK airports.

Car Hire

Hertz offer a fully manned rental location inside the arrivals hall of both airports. You can book online in advance and the cost for seven days hire is approximately £175 from Exeter Airport and £275 from Newquay Airport. We would recommend choosing a small car and purchasing a map rather than relying on satelitte navigation as the roads in Devon and Cornwall can be very narrow.


Both Exeter Airport and Newquay Airport have official taxi providers operating offices in the arrivals building. They are manned all day and night so there is no need to book in advance. The cost of a taxi from Exeter Airport to Kingsbridge is approximately £90 and from Newquay Airport to Kingsbridge is approximately £158.

Travelling from London by Train - see Trainline for more information

A journey from London Paddington to Plymouth takes approximately three hours and an ‘off-peak return’ ticket costs £110. This is a flexible ticket bookable in advance or purchased on the day. 

Car Hire

We would recommend travelling to Plymouth Train Station where you can hire a car from Hertz. Although they are not based at the Train Station if you book online then phone the office at least thirty  minutes prior to your arrival, Hertz staff will meet you in the arrival hall of the Station. On your return you must return the vehicle to 21B Commercial Road, Coxside, Plymouth, PL4 0LE and they will drive you back to the Railway Station. The approximate cost for seven days hire is £162.
