Recommended Taxi Companies
Shilstone has a nominated taxi company we recommend that your bookings are made through, namely Tony of Ivybridge Taxis. It is always good to give the maximum notice and at least one week, as weekend nights get booked up very, very quickly. However, if he is full please see below a number of other taxi companies. Further recommendations are as follows:
1) Email your chosen taxi company to confirm your booking and ensure you receive confirmation in return
2) Have your destination’s full address and postcode to hand
3) Try and share taxis with other guests staying at the same location, as this will reduce your costs – and remember then to specify that you need 6/8/16 seater vehicle
4) Lastly, and most importantly, your guests should be at the taxi collection point at the time of their booking. We know it takes time to say goodbye, but delaying the taxi can result in firstly, somebody else taking it or it leaving for its next job. Secondly, more than likely, the taxi will have another booking afterwards and they will be left waiting.
Please see below a list of taxis our guests regularly use to get themselves to and from Shilstone. Please book your taxi travel in advance as you will find it difficult to book a taxi at short notice due to Shilstone’s remote location.

Please remember to be ready to leave at the time your taxi is booked for as delays can have a knock-on effect for other guests or fairs the taxi company may have. It is also worth remembering that taxis can be delayed for reasons such as that above; therefore, please allow plenty of time to reach your destination.
