How to Get Here
By car, plane or train
Knighton straddles the border between England and Wales, with most of the town actually in Wales. Ffrydd House is at the Eastern end of the town, at the beginning of the town centre.
From Southern England, the best route is via the M4 to Swindon East, then follow the Cirencester signs and the Gloucester (dual carriageway most of the way). From the Gloucester by pass follow the signs to Newent. As you get to the crossroads with traffic lights just outside Newent, take the right turn. You are now on a road with an amazing number of places of interest: garden centres, cider makers and vineyards, orchards, pubs. Endless opportunities to stop and browse, usually with at least a cafe if not a full restaurant.
From the Midlands, go to Worcester and then Leominster.
From the North, go to Telford and Shrewsbury and then turn south.
Nearest airports are: Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Cardiff, Bristol.
Car free: The town has a railway station, 10-15 minutes walk from the house, on the Mid-Wales Line, accessible from the Midlands and North via Shrewsbury and from the South, including London, via Craven Arms. Knighton can be also reached by train from Birmingham International aiport in under 3 hours (1 change at Shrewsbury) and from Heathrow airport in 4 3/4 hours (change at Paddington, Newport and Craven Arms)
