I've been invited down to an Adventure Weekend in Bude (well, Widemouth Bay to be precise) next April and I'm trying to work out the best way of getting there from London.
Ideally I don't want to drive as I'll be the only one coming from London and I know that there will be a fair amount of alcohol being consumed over the weekend so don't fancy taking on a monster drive if I'm feeling tricky.
Options that I've looked at so far are a train from London to Exeter St. Davids then the 599 bus to Bude, or a flight from Gatwick to Newquay and then make up the rest of the journey in a mini cab.
Can anyone that has done this journey before let me know the best and, more importantly, cheapest option to go for? How much is a single on the 599 from Exeter to Bude and how much would a cab from Newquay Airport to Widemouth Bay cost?
