No matter how you’re planning to get to Lifton Hall, you’ll find it easy to find. Less than a mile from the A30 dual carriageway, the main road joining Devon and Cornwall, you’ll be able to enjoy a relaxing location that’s also convenient for all.
On foot or by cycle
If you’re walking or cycling around the south west and coming to stay at Lifton Hall on your route, we’re very easy to find. You will no doubt already have a route planned taking in Lifton, which lies on the old A30 and not that far from the new one! The hotel is on the main road – New Road – through the village. Take a look at the map below.
We have plenty of space for bicycles and can lock them away in the shed if required. Muddy boots are no problem, as long as they’re taken off outside! If you’d prefer a room with a bath so you can have a long, hot soak – just let us know when booking your room.
If you have luggage that you don’t want to carry or transport we are part of the Luggage Transfer scheme in place across the whole of the South West – please contact us for details.
Lifton is on the 6 and 6A bus route that runs between Exeter and Bude, via Okehampton and Launceston. The bus is operated by Stage Coach and stops in Lifton 4 times a day – Monday to Saturday – and once on a Sunday or Public Holiday. The bus stop is just outside the hotel.
Visit the Stage Coach website for details of the 6/6A route and bus times
Our closest airports are Newquay and Exeter – both about an hour away. Bristol airport is also fairly close (under 2 hours) and offers more flights.
We can arrange for a taxi to collect you from any of these airports. Car hire is also possible.
From the M5 heading south west
From junction 31 at Exeter (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.
Exeter St David’s is the best option if you’re travelling from the east or ‘up country’. It takes approximately 3 hours from London, 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 ‘By bus’).
Plymouth station is better if you’re travelling up from Cornwall. Again taxis can be arranged to pick you up.
