Getting to Cornwall

By Car

From the Midlands and Bristol take the M5 to Exeter. Exit at junction 31 and follow signs to Launceston, Redruth and Penzance via the A30. At Carland Cross roundabout (you’ll see the wind turbines on your right), take the third exit onto the A30 and continue on this road, taking the second exit at Chiverton Cross roundabout.

If you are collecting keys from our Hayle Office, at Loggans Moor Roundabout (McDonalds), take the second exit onto Marsh Lane, passing the Retail Park on your right. At the mini roundabout take the first exit and after 40 yards turn right into the industrial park. Continue for approx. 50 yards and you'll see Aspects Holidays; the large cedar-clad building on your right. If keys can be collected from our other offices via prior arrangement then please contact our holiday team who will willingly provide you with more detailed directions.

By Train

Many of our properties are easily accessible by train. For properties in St Ives, the single track branch line links to Carbis Bay and St Ives, which links with St Erth, Penzance and mainline routes to London Paddington. For more information visit: First Great Western or Trainline. We recommend you book early for the cheapest fares.

From the airport you can take a taxi or minibus to one of our key collection offices, catch a bus to Newquay train station or hire a car for the duration of your stay.

By Taxi

For our guests staying in St Ives, there is a taxi office, ‘Ace Cars’, on exit from St Ives train station who are our recommended taxi service. If you are travelling by public transport and arriving outside of office hours we can arrange for Ace Cars to hold the keys to your property and will be able to take you to your property for a minimal charge. Please contact our holiday team at or on 01736 754242 for more information.

Car Hire


When booking your holiday, the website will detail when parking is provided with the property. Whilst we would love to be able to offer parking at all of our properties, unfortunately this is not possible in many parts of Cornwall. Therefore, public parking is greatly in demand and it is a good idea to plan ahead.

If you’re staying in Cornwall for three or more days, and your property doesn’t have parking, we recommend that you purchase a countywide Rover Ticket. A Rover ticket allows you to park in almost all long stay council car parks in Cornwall (80+ car parks) and is therefore beneficial when visiting other areas of Cornwall during your stay as well. A seven-day Rover ticket costs £47.71 and can be purchased in advance via the government website. All council-run car parks also provide 24-hour parking for shorter stays, which can be purchased at the car park.

Most towns in Cornwall have several council-run car parks where your Rover ticket will be valid. However, in some of the towns, parking can still be difficult; take a look at the list below for additional non-council car parks for the following areas:

St Ives:

St Ives RFC
St Ives Secure Car Park
Stennack Laundrette Car Park
Stennack Surgery Car Park (evenings only)


North Quay Car Park
South Quay Car Park
The Parade Car Park


Folleyfield Long Stay Car Park


Maritime Car Park

Port Isaac:
