Second time using Abby Taxis, am really happy that I found this taxi company. So easy to book a taxi, our train was delayed coming down to Cornwall, phoned Dave not a problem, was sorted within minutes! Good fair rates, and really friendly! Definitely recommend! Thanks again! See you next year.

When planning a trip to Port Isaac, Cornwall I contacted Abby Taxi to arrange pick-up at Bodmin Parkway Station, drop-off at the Port Gaverne Hotel, as well as the reverse trip 4 days later. I was arranging this from Boston, Massachusetts, where I live, as a segment of a two vacation to London and Cornwall.

Almost immediately I received response from Dave who quoted a price and confirmed the date and times.

Sure enough, the day before we were to take the train from a London, I received an email from Dave and another from Bernadette confirming the date and time of pick-uo at Bodmin Parkway, and that Chris would be our driver and he would have an iPad displaying my name. Chris was there to meet us and was friendly and charming. Interestingly, enough, Chris was leaving the next day for Chicago and planned on driving all along Route 66, Chris, I hope you had a fabulous trip!

For our return trip to London 4 days later, once again I received confirmation the day before from Dave, and another from Bernadette. Sure enough, 9 AM the next day our driver Steve arrived and he was delightful. He was such a gentleman that he even carried our luggage to the train platform at Bodmin Parkway.

All from Abby Taxi were such a pleasure and this experience contributed to a truly lovely trip to Cornwall. For sure I will use them again when we next visit our friends who live in Port Isaac.

Thank you Dave, Bernadette, Chris and Steve - I am more than happy to recommend your services.

Kindest regards,

My dream was to come to Port Isaac, Cornwall & tour everything “Doc Martin” in his fictional Portwenn. Our journey to Cornwall was leg one of a 12-day holiday in England & Scotland. My husband & I needed a way to get from Bodmin Parkway (train station) to Port Isaac. We were recommended to try Abby Taxi of Wadebridge by the Terrace Tea Room & B&B. Couldn’t have had a better experience with Dave, our taxi driver. He was super friendly, on time, & drove very safely. High marks for their taxi service. I gave Dave the wrong return date; he went above & beyond by finding us an alternative taxi driver to get us back to Bodmin Parkway, as he was booked that day. Thanks to Dave & Abby Taxi of Wadebridge for helping make my Portwenn dream come true. Cheers!

As most Doc Martin fans from the US do, my cousin and I made the pilgrimage to Port Isaac when we were visiting London. Took the train to Bodmin Parkway, promptly jumped off the train with bags, took a quick selfie and got "busted" by Dave...who photobombed us. LOL. Great customer service, clean vehicles and plenty of room for the giant suitcase I had to bring with me. Dave is a very personable guy who offered all sorts of great information about the local area and even took us by the beach for our first ocean view before dropping us off in Port Isaac. Dave got our Port Isaac visit off to a great start and we will definitely use Abby Taxis again!

As visitors to this area this was the first time we had used Abby’s Taxis, but we could not have been better served. Prompt, reliable,friendly and courteous service and good value. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.

First time of using this taxi firm, couldn't fault them! Really reliable, both drivers where really friendly and prompt. Really reasonable in price as well, would highly recommend. Will definitely be using again when back in Cornwall! Thanks again for making our journey so easy!

I have been using Abby Taxi's for a few years now. They are polite and punctual, vehicles are exceptionally clean and well maintained and Drivers are very knowledgeable. Whether I need a local transfer or a long haul they are my first port of call.

I can't recommend Dave/Abby Taxis highly enough. You are in excellent hands. Dave picked me up at Bodmin Station and took me into Port Isaac and then for the return journey to the station in the wee morning hours. As an extra bonus his welcoming, upbeat and informative personality started my visit on a wonderful happy note and ended it that way too. Many thanks Dave!

We arrived on the train at Bodmin Parkway from London and wanted to get to Tintagel. Called Abby Taxi the night before and Dave was at the station to meet us. The vehicle was clean and comfortable and had plenty of space for luggage and passengers, and so we really enjoyed the ride. And as we were still planning our stay in Tintagel, he gave us great information about the area. We arranged for him to also take us back to the train station at the end of our stay. He was at the hotel on time as planned. Next time we visit we'll use his services to show us more of the area. Highly recommend!! Thanks Dave and Bernadette!

Dave, My friend and I are back in the US but wanted to thank you for your prompt courteous service while we were in Port Isaac. I have your business cards so I can refer you to any friends that may also be traveling in that area. You were most helpful.

Super trip from Wadebridge to Port Issac where the TV show "Doc Martins" was filmed. Informative, friendly, great knowledge of local area, super car with lots of leg room and excellent service all round. Highly recommended!!

5 star Fab service, always on time & such a lovely chap, with great knowledge of the area. Highly recommended.

Friendly, sincere, good driver. My wife and I came to Cornwall for a wedding, and didn't think to hire a car, so we taxid everywhere. My daughter gets carsick very easily, but Dave's driving was excellent and smooth around the hills and bumps of rural Cornwall. He was prompt, a decent price, friendly, considerate and an incredibly nice guy. It was an absolute pleasure.

We used Abbey Taxi's to travel to a restaurant from Padstow. This was reasonably priced and Dave is really friendly with a prompt and clean service. Would highly recommend if you need transport.

Good old-fashioned service is alive & well and lives in Wadebridge. David & Bernadette could not have been more caring and helpful in organising a group of teenagers to get safely from Newquay airport to their Cornish summer fun. They really went the extra mile to make sure the boys were looked after and parents re-assured. A great service and whole-heatedly recommend this brilliant local business.
