Our nearest mainline railway station is Carmarthen. Hammet @ Castell Malgwyn is a 40-50 minute taxi ride from there.
Our nearest bus stop is in the village Llechryd, on the route 460 from Carmarthen to Cardigan. From the bus stop it is only a 10 minute walk to the house. The village bridge is currently closed but pedestrians are allowed to cross.
IMPORTANT : Llechryd Bridge Closure
Due to recent storms, the main access route to the hotel (which would take you over the village bridge) has a part-closure.
Diversion notices are in place but it is best to be aware of the re-route in advance, potentially saving yourself journey time.
