Please note, when coming to Cornwall, the A30 can be slow at times but once you get here Cornwall is truly amazing. We have the following advice for travelling to Cornwall:

  • Set off early in the morning to avoid traffic
  • Pack water and snacks in case traffic is busy
  • Fill up with fuel prior to joining the A30
  • Pack doggy treats, a doggy bowl and water if your pooch is coming too
  • Stop the car and take your dog for a little walk before joining the A30
  • Finally…make sure you arrive with us in time to enjoy complimentary tea and treats after the journey!

Catch a train direct to Truro station. For more information visit
The station is only a 20 minute walk away or a few minutes by taxi.

By Taxi
We’d like to note that not all taxi companies are dog friendly, so we recommend you use a2b taxis which are happy to accommodate hounds!

We’d also suggest if you’re planning to catch a cab between 8:00-9:00am to get you to work or train station that you book in advance as due to busy periods and limited companies we cannot guarantee same day booking. We would advise to book this before your stay or 1-2 days before you require the taxi.

We have many recommendations so feel free to give us a call on 01872 272450 for some contact numbers.
