Turn off the M4 at Newport sign posted Monmouth and onto a dual carriageway.

On the Monmouth road turn left sign posted Abergavenny after circa 10 miles.

Continue on the dual carriageway passing Raglan Castle on your right ( well worth a visit if you have time).

Take the second exit off the roundabout before Abergavenny and head towards Merthyr Tydfil on the Heads of Valley dual carriageway..

After 3 miles take the third exit off the next roundabout sign posted Gilwern and Crickhowell.

In Gilwern take a right turn to Crickhowell by the Beaufort Pub.

We are located on the Junction of the A 4077 and the A40 opposite the Shell petrol station.

If you enter Crickhowell along the A40 from the west or east turn off at the modern Shell petrol station into New Road and take the first entrance on the right via a beech hedge and green painted railings, bear left around the 3 acre lawn to parking areas on the east side of Porthmawr.

National Express have buses from Heathrow and Gatwick airports to Newport and there is a bus service or train to Abergavenny.

Crickhowell Taxis who have and array of cars and mini buses operate airport collection, we advise groups to collaborate and share a mini bus as it is 140 miles from Heathrow to Crickhowell and hence expensive for individual taxis.
