Although many of our bed and breakfast visitors arrive at Orchard Lodge by car, it’s very easy to get here without one. If you’d like to give the car a rest and come to Cornwall another way, we offer discounts to those arriving on foot, by bike or on public transport – so why not rise to the challenge and possibly save some money! Here’s some information which could help:
- Orchard Lodge b&b is approximately 90 minutes from Exeter railway stations and airport.
- Thirty minutes from Bodmin Parkway station and the main rail link to London.
- Forty-five minutes from Newquay airport.
- It’s on the Stagecoach bus routes between Bude and Wadebridge with links to Exeter.

Although Gunpool Lane is open to two-way traffic we advise guests to avoid Fore Street and access Gunpool Lane from the west side, off New Road.
Orchard Lodge is easily located at the top of the village at the junction of New Road and Doctor’s Hill. If you are arriving by bus the nearest stop is just a few yards from our b&b, at Doctor’s Corner – just ask the bus driver!
Approaching from the South on the A39: follow signs for Boscastle onto the B3266. Turn sharp right at the filling station into Gunpool Lane; Orchard Lodge is immediately on the left. Approaching from the North on the A39 take the B3263 to the harbour and continue towards Tintagel. Orchard Lodge b&b is on the left, half a mile from the harbour.
