How to get there

Directions from Newtown: Take the A489 (Kerry Rd at McDonald's roundabout) for 3 miles and just before you enter Kerry, take the right turning by into Gilfach Lane sign posted The Forest. Follow the narrow winding lane for approximately 3/4 of a mile ignoring the Sat Nav if you have one. You will pass a left fork and later a right fork after the bungalow; do not take either, stay on the lane. The entrance to The Forest has black metal gates and is on the left, just past the brook.
