taxi from Bodmin Parkway to Padstow?

Hi, just wondering if anyone knows the rough cost of a taxi from Bodmin Parkway rail station to Padstow? And are there taxis normally waiting at the station, or should we pre-book? We will arrive late morning on a Sunday. Thanks for any advise.

Hello,

Probably around £ 25-30 would be the taxi fare.

There are usually taxi's outside the station.

There aren't always taxis outside the station, so I always like to ring ahead. Phone when you are approaching Liskeard, tell them where you are and ask them to meet you off the train.

A few numbers 01208 72320 or 01208 73000 or 01208 75000

Hi

There are rarely if ever Taxi's outside Bodmin Parkway.

The station is not actually in Bodmin.

It's not within walking distance to Bodmin and is in a rural location.

Make sure to pre book.

So from those 3 replies you can see that there are 'usually taxis' or there 'aren't always taxis' or finally 'there are rarely if ever taxis'

Confused? I would book one!

From my view, I have often seen taxis waiting when a London or 'up country ' train is due in.

Well I use Bodmin Parkway a lot, and get taxis to and fro. There are sometimes taxis waiting there, particularly from busy London trains, but there aren't always taxis around, and as I arrange mine from Liskeard as said, I have no idea whether they are pre booked or not.

What is clear, is that taxis do not routinely wait at Bodmin Parkway, and that you will be far better to phone ahead and book.

If you phone when you arrive at Bodmin, it will take a good 15-20 minutes for one to come out to the station.

I have responded to your PM before I saw this message. As I said there, you need the 555 to Wadebridge, followed by the 584 to Port Isaac. If you decide on Padstow, the 555 goes all the way there.

The website you want is www.westerngreyhound.com

Bodmin Parkway as previous comments indicate is about 3 miles outside the town in a rural location and has no suitable access for pedestrians. We recommend pre-booking Parnell Taxis on 01208 75000 to our guests, though I'm sure that you will get good service from other taxi services in the town.
