Approaching from Dolgellau direction:
- Turn off A470 Dolgellau bypass at junction signposted Tywyn/Fairbourne onto A493. We are exactly 4.5 miles from this point so set your milometer as we are easy to miss. You will see our entrance sign on the main road on the RIGHT. Do not turn down any lanes - if you pass the quarry and reach Arthog you have gone too far.

Approaching from coast/Tywyn direction
- Our entrance is directly on the A493 between Arthog and Dolgellau. Stay on A493 out of Arthog up hill. Pass quarry on right and about 1/4 mile on look for sign on left saying "Concealed entrance". That's us.
