At present this page focuses on Bude and Polperro as these are the only details we have to hand.
If you can add to these, please e-mail us with the information and we will include it.
This page is to help you find out about access to different parts of Cornwall. As we are all aware, access to certain places can be very difficult. We hope this will be of some help when coming to Cornwall. If you have found a place that is Wheel-Chair friendly then please let us know, and we will add this information to the this page.
