How to get there

From the South
Leave the M4 at Junction 24 (signposted to Newport & Monmouth) and exit the roundabout heading North on the A449. Exit the dual carriageway left onto the A472 (signposted for Usk) and shortly after entering the town turn right at the 'Three Salmons' hotel, (signposted to Abergavenny). Follow this winding road (the B4598) - through the small villages of Chain Bridge (you cross the River Usk here) and Llanvair Kilgeddin - for approximately 6 miles until you come a T-junction. Turn left here (signposted for Abergavenny and the B4598).Continue straight on towards Abergavenny and you will come into the small village of Penpergwm which consists of a few houses on the left and right and ‘The King of Prussia’ Pub on your left. Very soon after this you will see a sign to The Bryn to your left. Turn left (you will notice the road crosses over the A40 here) and then turn immediately left again on the other side of the road bridge. Keep on this narrowing lane (passing a red telephone kiosk on your left), drive carefully through the village, and at the foot of the hill follow the bend round to the RIGHT* and facing you at the end of the lane you should see a farm building, with Rectory Farm and a private road to your right. Bear LEFT here, passing the gates to St Cadoc's Church on your right, and the next turning on your right is The Old Rectory. You cannot go any further due to a five-barred gate providing access into the meadow, sheep, and eventually, The River Usk.

From the North
Leave the M5 at Junction 8 and follow the M50 towards Ross-on-Wye. Turn left onto the A449 and then follow signs on the A40 dual carriageway southbound through Monmouth and take the Abergavenny exit (still signposted A40). You will pass Raglan Castle on your right here, and at the bottom of the hill there is a roundabout. Take the third exit, which is the Clytha Road. Follow this road until it becomes the B4598 and then follow directions as shown in the second paragraph above for guests coming 'From The South'.

Should you experience any difficulty finding us please do not hesitate to telephone and we will be only too happy to help.

* Note for those with Satellite Navigation - your device will probably tell you to turn LEFT at the foot of the hill. Ignore it - you need to turn RIGHT here and follow the directions above.
