The 300 Minehead-Lynmouth bus is back for Summer 2019
Save

Quantock Heritage (previously Quantock Motor Services) will revive its 300 route over Exmoor for the Summer season, offering spectacular views over Exmoor and across the Bristol Channel.

The service will operate on Mondays to Fridays only, commencing Monday 15th July and finishing Friday 6th September. Departures from Minehead Railway Station will be at 10.05 and 14.05; and from Lynmouth, Lyndale Car Park at 11.35 and 16.00. Journey time is just over one hour.

Fare (single or return) is £10 from Minehead/Porlock to Lynmouth and vice-versa, £5 for children and dogs and £25 for a family ticket (2 adults and up to 3 children). Please note that Concessionary passes are NOT accepted as the route is deemed to be a tourist service. Also note that heritage vehicles will be used and these are not low-floor or fully accessible.

Thanks for that information. This has to be one of the most scenic bus rides in the country.

It's good news that this service is running again this year. It's a very scenic route in a lovely part of England.

It's a pretty little bus this year. Black and cream. Looks something like the Leyland Tiger PS1 second photo down but different colours

Shane - sorry, it only runs during the Summer. There used to be a regular service but it was axed a few years back after Devon and Somerset County Councils refused to support it.
