Goodfest Info & Travel
Information about the festival
Getting to Goodfest
Goodfest will be held at Bedruthan Hotel, perched on the hill overlooking Mawgan Porth on the stunning North Coast of Cornwall. As well as an inspiring landscape right on the doorstep, which we’ll make as full use of as possible (weather permitting), the hotel also has fantastic eco-credentials.
There are 2 train stations Newquay 25 minutes away and Bodmin Parkway 30 minutes away from the hotel. We would recommend calling ahead to book a taxi service for your onward journey from the train station. There is a sleeper service operated by GWR.
Use postcode: TR8 4BU
There is parking at the hotel which is free and monitored by Parking Eye. Please log your registration plate during check in. If you drive an electric vehicle, there is Tesla Connector and Type 2 charging capability.
If you are driving to us and have room for others, please post where you are driving from and to, and what dates on our Facebook page, so we can see if we can help organise car sharing. Where possible, we’re asking you to share transport. If you can not find a car share here, you can also use Pasty Connection (around Cornwall) or BlaBlaCar.
For us the last resort would be to fly so we do encourage you to make alternative travel arrangements. The airport is Cornwall Airport Newquay and we ask that if this is the travel method you use, you are responsible for off-setting and for also letting us know how you have done this so we can share with others.
Although you can stay at the Bedruthan Hotel and Spa with room rates organised for Goodfest attendees (just say you’re attending when booking), you may wish to camp, share a lodge, an airstream caravan or wild camp, it’s up to you and what works best. The hotel’s conference space and facilities are just our base for GF23. We’ve put together a list for you of where else you can stay in the area, so you can make the right decision for you.
In partnership with the venue, we’ve tried to make the event as sustainable as possible and we’ll be recording how everyone travels to and from Goodfest so we can work with B Corp Ecosphere and Leap to balance your journeys if you haven’t already done so.
