Lots of info here, so bear with us - if you don't want to drive (and we'd rather you didn't) you'll find all you need to know here.
No pictures on this page as you all know what a bus looks like and you'll probably want to print this out. Happy travels!

First and foremost we are in Newport, PEMBROKESHIRE and NOT Newport, Gwent!

To see where we are on the map click here for a Multimap; you can zoom right in to see the roads too.


Our nearest train stations are Fishguard Harbour and Haverfordwest. Fishguard Harbour is nearer but with less frequent trains.

National Express runs coaches to Haverfordwest. For coach information ring 08705 808080.

From Haverfordwest take bus number T5 to Newport - this takes an hour. The bus leaves from directly outside Haverfordwest train station and also stops at Haverfordwest bus station. The T5 runs approximately hourly from 9am until 6.45pm Monday to Saturday. For current T5 bus times ring Richards Brothers on 01239 613 756. It runs infrequently on a Sunday and is operated by a different bus company - for current times ring Traveline (number below).At the time of writing, the last bus from Haverfordwest on a Sunday was at 3.30pm and from Newport to Haverfordwest 5.05pm.

Fishguard Harbour train station is actually in Goodwick (and not Fishguard!). From the train, take bus number 410 to Fishguard Square. This is a ten minute journey. From Fishguard Square take the T5 to Newport (see above). This is a twenty minute journey. The 410 is also operated by Richards Brothers.

If you are travelling from elsewhere in Wales, the midlands or the north you may find it quicker and/or cheaper to travel via Aberystwyth.
From Aberystwyth take the number T5 bus (from next to the train station) to Newport. This is approximately a two hour journey. The T5 is also operated by Richards Brothers - phone for current times. The Sunday service is operated by Arriva Cymru - ring Traveline for details (number below).

From Cardigan take the T5 bus to Newport - this is approximately a twenty minute journey. The last T5 bus at time of writing from Cardigan Monday to Saturday is at 7.15pm and 4.40pm on a Sunday. Ring Richards Brothers for current times. From Aberystwyth a West Wales Explorer ticket will take you all the way to Newport and costs around 6. For all public transport enquires within Wales ring Traveline Wales on 0871 200 22 33

From Newport to Us
It is a thirty minute, mainly uphill, walk from Newport to Brithdir Mawr.(1.8 miles)

Head out of Newport in the direction of Cardigan.

You'll pass The Golden Lion pub on your left. Take the next turning on the right, which is signed to Cilgwyn.
At the T-junction turn left and follow this road for about a mile (do not take any forks up the mountain - just stick to this road).

After the road starts going downhill for a fair bit look out for our track and homemade "Brithdir Mawr" sign on the left. You have arrived. If you reach Cilgwyn you've gone just slightly too far. If you have heavy luggage or small children, give us a ring and we may be able to pick you up from Newport.

Finally a quick Welsh lesson .. Newport=Trefdraeth . . .Fishguard=Abergwaun . . .Cardigan=Aberteifi . . Haverfordwest=Hwlffordd . . .Wales=Cymru.
