Then take first right signposted to Pendoylan.

Keep on this road for about a mile, passed Hensol Golf Academy, round an S bend until you come to a crossroads, you need to turn left here. (Guest house on the right, cottage on left). Follow the lane down for about half a mile until it levels out and you will see us on the right hand side. (dark pink).

If you are using a Sat Nav DO NOT take the first left into Brynhelygan Farm drive, keep coming until you see Clawdd Coch guest house and turn left here.

From the A48 take the turning to Pendoylan off Sycamore Cross, right handed if coming from Cardiff, left handed if coming from Bridgend. Follow the lane to a fork and take the left hand towards Pendoylan. Keep straight all the way down the lane, through the village and past the war memorial hall on your left. Straight after this you will come to a crossroads with a stone barn conversion on your right. Take an immediate right at this and follow the lane down until it levels out, you will see us on the right hand side (dark pink).

Follow the drive passed the first building on your right and then swing directly right and park opposite the blue trailor. You will see a gap in the wall taking you down into the garden, follow the path round to your right and you will find the hut.
