How to get here

By train

Given its remoteness this is a hard property to get to and from by public transport, but there are railway stations at Llanwrtyd (4 miles), Llangammarch (4 miles) and Sugar Loaf (5½ miles). For further information go to Transport Direct

By road

The A470 from Builth to Rahayder passes close to the village of Llanwrthwl, which is close to the eastern end of the property. The B4358 running southwest from Newbridge on Wye (also on the A470) takes you to the village of Beulah. From there drive northwest to the Nant Irfon valley; a spectacular valley and steep winding road that leads over the Devil's Staircase and eventually on to Tregaron. The Nant Irfon valley is at the extreme western end of the property. Other small lanes can lead you to the edges of the property

By foot

There are many access points onto the common. The Wye Valley long distance trail cuts along the eastern boundary of the property. This 136-mile trail is way-marked by the distinctive 'leaping salmon' logo and runs from the source of the River Wye in mid-Wales all the way to the mouth of the river near Chepstow Castle

By bus

Given its remoteness this is a hard property to get to and from by public transport, however the Number 100 from Llandrindod Wells to Abergwesyn Old Post Office runs twice daily Monday to Friday. For more information go to Traveline

By cycle

National Cycle Route 8 (on-road) passes within 3 miles of the eastern boundary of the property and runs from Cardiff to Holyhead, passing through the heart of Wales. It links with route 42 on the banks of the River Wye. The roads along this route are usually quiet but can be busy in some sections. This route is quite strenuous and generally for the more experienced cyclist. Follow the route to the B4358 and from there onto the property. For more information go to Sustrans
