Travel from Carmarthen to the Ceridwen Centre
Depending on the time of your arrival and whether it conicides with a bus departure, you can travel by bus or take a taxi to Ceridwen. There is a taxi rank at the train station so there’s no need to book one in advance.
The service ‘460’ leaves from the bus and train stations in Carmarthen to the top of our lane. Ask the driver to stop at the Lamb Inn in Rhos (just before Saron which is on the timetable) and you can either walk from there to Ceridwen (30 mins walk) or it’s a short drive to be picked up.

We will happily pick up guests from The Lamb Inn or on occasion we can arrange a transfer to/from Carmarthen for £15 per car load.
