The closest station is La Gouesniere station but the TGV only stops in Rennes and Saint-Malo.

It is easy to reach Cancale by taking Bus line 5 from the Saint-Malo TGV station to Cancale Petites Croix (750m from our house) or Cancale Stade (700m from our house).

If you get off the train at La Gouesniere I recommend to order a taxi to go to Cancale.
