Map & Directions

Road Directions

SatNav users may find that our postcode leaves them a couple of hundred yards down the road! Also, some SatNavs suggest a local ford is navigable - it IS NOT! Please use the river bridge 1/4 mile to the North. Our Latitude is 52.309791 and Longitude -3.953962

From Aberystwyth take the A487 South. Just past Llanfarian, turn left onto the A485 through Llanilar to Lledrod. (In Llanilar, take the second exit at the new mini-roundabout in front of the Falcon Inn, to stay on the A485.)

In Lledrod, turn left at the hairpin bend, signposted to Ystrad Meurig, and follow this road up through the village houses. Go up and round to the left, keep going for about 2 miles then take the narrow left turn at the blue ‘Brynarth’ sign to Trawsgoed/Crosswood, carry on down this road for about half a mile and you will find us on the left hand side.

You will see the car park entrance first then the gated drive immediately afterwards. Please use the car park unless you are a Blue Badge Holder; there are pedestrian steps in the corner directly down into the main courtyard. Blue Badge holders please call ahead and we will be watching out for you to assist with baggage and show you where to park your car.

From Carmarthen and the South, follow the A485 to the north, go through Tregaron taking the left at the junction in the middle of the town, then look out for the steep descent into Lledrod and the hairpin left bend. Take the right turn immediately on the hairpin bend, signposted to Ystrad Meurig, then follow as above.

If travelling on the B4340 North from Pontrhydfendigaid ignore any SatNav directions to turn left towards the river ford, carry on and turn left over the bridge, then turn left again following the blue ‘Brynarth’ sign. Just under a mile you will reach a T junction, bare left here, at this point some SatNav’s will try to direct you down a dead end track back towards the river ford again!... ignore this and carry on following the blue ‘Brynarth’ sign for a mile and a half, up the steep hill, over the hump back bridge, carry on even though your SatNav may have told you that you have ‘reached your destination’ you will find us on the right-hand side.

If travelling south from Aberystwyth on the B4340 follow this road for just under 7 miles until you reach Trawsgoed, then take the right turn over the bridge and follow the above directions, towards Brynarth.
