Getting There

From Carmarthen head for St Clears then Tenby. At the Kilgetty roundabout follow signs for Folly Farm (FF). Drive past FF on left for 1 mile. Turn right under the railway bridge (before the village of Templeton – no houses or buildings in sight!). Melin Mabes is the first turning on the right (look out for the mini windmills stuck on lampposts). Please park at the gate then call at the static caravan on the left. Do not call at Mabes Mill House on the right as this is where the neighbours live.

The nearest bus and train stations are Narberth, or Kilgetty.
