Ways to reach Three Mile Beach

Far from the madding crowd, Three Mile Beach can be found tucked away on a truly unspoilt part of Cornwall’s coastline.

Drive it or train it, getting to Three Mile Beach is easy, even though it’s tucked away in its own little world in the unspoilt wilds and golden dunes. No matter how you choose to reach us, we have the know-how (from our own personal experience) to help make your journey part of the adventure.

Dear drivers

To give you an idea, we’re just over 100 miles from Exeter (that’s about 2 hours), just over 180 miles from Bristol (a little over 3 hours), and 275 from London (don’t forget the snacks – it’s 5 hours plus).

Once you’ve booked, we’ll send you the best places to stop en-route to explore or just stretch your legs.

Of course, the biggest benefit of driving is you’ll have your own car here ready to explore St Ives Bay and beyond.

Dear Train Travellers

The planet-conscious traveller’s mode of choice is a great way to get down here and back.

There’s a GWR line from Paddington to Penzance that takes in lots of major stations and lots of superb views, especially around the Teignmouth area where the train appears to be moving along the water’s edge.

The station you want for Three Mile Beach is St Erth. London Paddington direct to St Erth is about a 5-hour 10-minute journey. We’re just a short taxi ride from there (let us know if you’d like us to pre-book your taxi).

If you’re hiring a car, it’s best to leave the train at Truro, and then it’s just a 35 to 40–minute drive to Three Mile Beach.

Night Riveria Sleeper

Travel with GWR overnight between the West Country and London on the Night Riviera Sleeper.
