Weythel is between Kington and Llandrindod Wells

By car

Fastest routes: M40 towards Birmingham, then M42, M5 to Droitwich, Tenbury Wells; or M4 to Swindon, A417 via Cirencester to M5, M50 to Ledbury, then Leominster).

From London or Sussex, take the M25, M4 to junction 15, then A419 near Swindon. This dual carriageway bypasses Cirencester and becomes A417. Turn north on the M5 (signed the Midlands). At junction 8 join M50, and leave at junction 2, on A417 past Ledbury (follow 'all routes', then A438 signed Hereford but DO NOT GO INTO HEREFORD - it can be very congested). Soon turn off at Trumpet Inn/ traffic lights onto A417 signed Leominster. Turn right at end, on A49, then first left at roundabout on B4361 to Leominster (Newton Farm cider, on left almost immediately, sells excellent cider from the barrel). In Leominster, turn left at mini roundabout, and turn left at traffic lights on A44, signed Rhayader. After 14 miles this bypasses Kington. (An ALTERNATIVE route is up M40 towards Birmingham, then M42 west/M5 south to junction 7, then A44 west - very quick if Birmingham area not too busy.)

The cottage is at the west end of Weythel.
