Driving Directions:

1.  Come off M4 at Junction 49

2.  Take 2nd exit off of roundabout onto A48 signposted Carmarthen

3.  Follow sign post A48 Carmarthen (3rd exit) at next roundabout (Cross Hands Roundabout)

4.  At roundabout take 2nd exit onto A40 (signposted Fishguard, St. Clears)

5.  At roundabout take 1st exit onto A40 (signposted Fishguard, St Clears)

6.  At roundabout take 1st exit onto A477 (signposted Pembroke Dock, Tenby)

7.  At Red Roses crossroads continue forward onto A477

8.  At Twy Cross roundabout take the 2nd exit onto the A478 (signposted Tenby)

When on A478 heading towards Tenby, you pass through the village of Wooden.  At the next roundabout, New Hedges and Saundersfoot are signposted to the left, take the 2nd exit towards Tenby.  This is your last roundabout!!! Yeehah!

After 1/2 a mile you will see a sign for Royston Caravan Park on the left.  There are then 100 years or so of grey metal railings on your left with some high visibility bollards at the end.

Indicate left now!  At the end of the run of railings is the turning signed to Waterwynch.

Turn left* into this lane and follow down to the bottom.  Take the right fork.  Press enter through the entrance gates and follow the drive to the car park for the main entrance to the House.

*Satnav has a tendency to send you right into Well Park instead of left at this point.  If you pass the Park House Court Nursing Home on the right, you have come too far.
