No matter how you are planning to get to Lifton Hall, you will find it easy to find. Less than a mile from the A30, the main road joining Devon and Cornwall, you will be able to enjoy a relaxing location that’s also convenient.
On foot or by cycle
If you are walking or cycling around the south west and coming to stay at Lifton Hall on your route, we are very easy to find.
You will no doubt already have a route planned taking in Lifton, which lies on the old A30. 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. Muddy boots are no problem, as long as they are taken off outside! If you would prefer a room with a bath so you can have a long, hot soak – just let us know when booking your room.
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.

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.
Exeter St David’s is the best option if you are 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 is also possible to catch a bus from Exeter St David’s station (see ‘By bus’).
Plymouth station is better if you are travelling up from Cornwall. Again taxis can be arranged to pick you up.
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.
