How To Get There:
Cefn Mably Farm Park is signposted by brown and white tourist signs from the A48 at Castleton, between Newport and Cardiff.
Sat-nav users please note that the postcode given above does not appear to correspond to the Farm Park itself, but to a remote `office'.

Continue across the A48(M) to the end of this road at a T-junction with Druidstone Road. Turn right and continue along Druidstone Road across the M4 and into the tiny village of Michaelston-y-Fedw. Turn left onto Began Road, towards St. Mellons. After about a further 0.5 mile, turn right at T-junction, towards Caerphilly. The entrance to the Farm Park will then be on your left after a short distance, just before a river bridge.

Just after entering the village, and after the start of the short stretch of dual carriageway, turn left into Coal Pit Lane. Continue to the Farm as described above (from Cardiff).
