There is a twice weekly bus through the village, running between Lampeter and Llandovery. And on the other days, another one along the main A482, a mile away. Regular buses each day to Lampeter from Aberystwyth in the north and Carmarthen/Swansea/Cardiff in the south. Trains to Aberystwyth, Carmarthen or Llanwrda (Heart of Wales line).

Hi! I moved to Wales after working around the world and am enjoying life in the peace and tranquility of the country. When I'm not still working (on ancient manuscripts), I enjoy singing, learning Welsh, walking and gardening. And getting to know new people. I speak fluent French and Catalan, and apart from Welsh can manage a bit of German, Italian, Spanish. I host language tuition at the house and can tailor courses to suit individual needs
