Coach firm drives into Cornwall


Somerset-based coach holiday firm Bakers Dolphin is expanding its services into Cornwall.

The company, which is one of the south west’s oldest holiday businesses, will be offering its holidays in Cornwall for the first time. And it says it will be offering free home pick-ups for anyone living within a ten-mile radius of Truro, Falmouth, Liskeard or St Austell.

Sales and marketing director Amanda Harrington explained: “We have a well-established business serving people from Gloucester in the north to Plymouth in the south and we believe it makes sense to offer that same service to people in Cornwall.

“Around 8,000 people a year in Cornwall go on coach tours, mostly to other parts of the UK but many to continental Europe and we want to provide them with a level of service they have not had in the county before.”
