Getting around

The Old Vicarage is located on the A497, which gives us ideal access to the north, through Dolgellau, and to the south through Machynlleth. It's best to have a car when you are staying here at The Old Vicarage, to get to all the local attractions. However there are public transport options available if you'd like to leave the car behind for a day or two.
