Directions from our nearest town Llangollen:
. From Llangollen take the A5 towards Corwen travelling west into Wales. Stay on the A5 past the canoe centre, further along you will pass the Berwyn steam railway station, and then a turning to Vivod on the left. Just beyond the turning the valley will start to open out on the right. Stay with the A5 and you will come to a sweeping right hand corner with a row of wooden posts on your left with red and white reflectors on them, you will then pass the Toll Gate lay-by snack bar - again on your left. Keep an eye open for our sign at the end of this lay-by. We are 200 yards past the sign, on the right down a bridle way. Turn right off the A5 down the bridle way, we are the white house at the end.
