Getting to Buckland Hall

Buckland Hall, Bwlch, Brecon Beacons, Powys, Wales LD3 7JJ

Though Buckland Hall is in a tranquil, rural location, it’s not hard to reach – located just off the A40 between Brecon and Abergavenny.

Drivetime is 1 hour from Cardiff and the M4 Severn Bridge, 2 hours from Birmingham, less than 3 hours from London, and within an hour and a half’s reach of airports at Cardiff and Bristol.

Please do not use any SatNav or internet route-finder directions, but instead follow the directions below.

Driving from the M4

From London, it’s quicker to use the M4 rather than the A40. Go across the new Severn Crossing (toll is £6.50 coming into Wales). Turn off M4 at junction 24 and take the A449 towards Monmouth. Exit the A449 at Raglan, sign-posted Abergavenny/A40. Follow the A40 all the way from here through Abergavenny, then Crickhowell and then the village of Bwlch.

About one mile after Bwlch (look out for three lay-bys on your left) you’ll see a sign on the left signposted Buckland Hall. Turn left off the A40 and go along our lane. Please drive carefully along the lane and give priority to farm vehicles (you will pass the farm on your left). Follow another sign to Buckland Hall (bear right) and follow the drive all the way to the mansion house. Plan your route here>>
