Cornwall Ten Tors route Bodmin Moor travel by TrainTrain Arrival at Liskeard - Mainline fast Trains from London and the Midlands run regularly in under four hours to Liskeard where all trains stop. Those wanting to take the full coast to coast route option staring at Looe will change at Liskeard to take a 1/2 hour branch line train onto Looe at the south coast.

Departure from Boscastle - There is no train station at Boscastle. Options are to take buses to Bodmin Parkway Station, Plymouth or Exeter (via Bude). Contact us for advice on times and options as services are on rural routes and need some planning. We can also advise on private transfers from Boscastle to Bodmin Parkway which is the nearest mainline station (around 1 hour away).
