  • Air from Airport (1.0 miles)
    A mini bus meets each plane when it lands to transport guests to their accommodation. They will charge you for this service but it is easier than walking with your luggage. From March to October planes fly from Exeter, Newqay and Land's End.
  • Boat from The Quay (0.4 miles)
    If you mark your luggage for 'Colossus B&B' Pilot's Retreat, St Mary's' your luggage will be delivered automatically to the B&B leaving you free of luggage to make the short walk to us. Walking from the quay, take the main road through town, bearing left (when you reach the Bishop and Wolf) then bear right past the Town Hall - continue on this road up past the St Mary's church and onwards up the hill. At the brow of the hill turn left then take a right and we are the 2nd house on the left.
