GETTING HERE AND GETTING AROUND
Getting to Tanyfoel.
We are easy to get to from the UK motorway network. We are about 75 minutes from the J11 of the M6, using the M54 and the A5. There are mainline railway stations 11 miles away in Welshpool and Gobowen, with good connections to Manchester, Birmingham and London Euston. Given a little notice, we can arrange transport to and from Gobowen or Welshpool station to Tanyfoel.
