We're close to Lands End so the easy route is to follow the A30 all the way through Cornwall. Summer and bank holiday traffic can be very heavy at the week-end so, if possible, travel at other times; Fridays and Saturdays are particularly busy. Early morning or evening journeys are easier. The A30 is largely dual carriageway and traffic often speeds, particularly just after joining from the M5. There are two stretches of single carriageway, at Bodmin Moor, where there is a two-mile stretch of single carriagewayand at Carland Cross where there is a single carriageway stretch to Chiverton Cross. The A30 returns to single-carriageway west of Camborne. Between Hayle and Penzance the A30 returns to the original route and it passes through several villages. Approaching Penzance, the A30 briefly becomes a dual-carriageway once again. Once west of Penzance it becomes a more rural road, running through or past several villages before terminating at Land's End. There are speed cameras (fixed and mobile) at various locations and some unmarked police cars. Allow around two hours for the journey from joining the A30 until arriving at Penzance if you have a clear run. It's always worth taking a break; there are serious accidents every summer on the A30 largely caused by excess speed and driver tiredness. There are good dining pubs at Tedburn St Mary and Victoria for example. Newquay Airport is about an hour away and has car hire facilities (rentalcars.com). There are year-round flights from Manchester and Gatwick and summer flights from Belfast City (from 7th June 2014), Birmingham International (from 16th May 2014), Edinburgh (from 24th May 2014), Dusseldorf (from 12th April 2014), Liverpool (from 3rd June 2014), London Southend (from 17th May 2014) and Newcastle (from 24th May 2014). Penzance station also has car hire facilities (Europecar: europcar.co.uk). If you're coming from the south-east you might want to try the sleeper and save a day's travelling. Detailed directions to Gwestva will be given once you've booked.
