As you can see from the map, we are right on the border between England and Wales.
You can even see Offa’s Dyke from your window!
We are less than an hour by car from the Severn Bridge, and less than two hours by car from Birmingham. Many of our guests come from the London area, and providing that you don’t get caught in a snarl-up on the M25, it takes about 3 hours 30 minutes to reach us from central London.
By rail, our nearest station is Abergavenny. From here you will need to take a taxi to Little Trewern, or you can arrange for us to collect you. The journey from Abergavenny to Little Tewern takes approximately 20 minutes. Unfortunately, in this new neo-liberal utopia which passes for England, there is no other form of public transport.
On foot, by car, taxi, horse, or bicycle
As there is no mobile phone signal within 2 miles of Little Trewern (but we do have Broadband here) we always advise guests to print out directions or a map to help you reach us safely! Some sat-navs also believe that you can ford the river Monnow to reach us from the west – this is a mistake, and is not to be recommended, unless you are on foot or on horseback!
The turn to Little Trewern is off the Longtown to Michaelchurch Escley road, and to reach us you probably need to pass through one of these two villages.
If you are coming through Longtown, the pub should be on your left and the shop / post office on your right. If you pass Longtown Castle you are on the wrong road!
Our turn is to the left 1½ miles from Longtown or to the right 2½ miles from Michaelchurch Escley; and there is a no through road sign at the junction.
There are five turnings off this road: Pen y Waun is the first turn off to the right, then Tregoed, and then we are the third turn to the right – signposted Little Trewern.
But although we are secluded, access is straight-forward. The approach road slopes gently down to Little Trewern, and you certainly don’t need a 4×4!
