Accommodation

We’ve chosen to stop in large villages or small towns which have more than one source of accommodation and cafes/restaurants. Hostels in the area seem to charge about 20 Euros and B&Bs around 40 Euros. Thus four night’s accommodation will cost 80-160 Euros.

Ferry

We have firmed up on leaving late on Thursday 14 May and returning late on Tuesday 19 May. The ferry leaves Plymouth at 22:00 on Thursday arriving in Roscoff at 08:00 on the Friday. The return ferry leaves Roscoff at 15:00 on Tuesday and arrives back in Plymouth at 20:00 the same day.

We propose traveling out in two-berth cabins – and to use no accommodation on the day-time return trip. For a couple sharing a two berth cabin plus two bikes the cost of the ferry return trip is £85 each – but for a party of ten (in 5 x 2 berth cabins) this reduces to £62.30 each.
