Arriving by train:
It is often possible to reduce costs by buying separate tickets for different legs of the journey. For example, if coming from London it may work out cheaper to buy in advance a return to birmingham (or say Crewe) and a return Birmingham (or Crewe) to Wrexham General ticket.
If travelling by train, please get off at Wrexham General. You will then need to take a bus to Corwen. From Wrexham General station, walk towards the town centre; King Street Bus Station is about ten minutes’ walk.
For the latest bus times, please click here and select the T3 (previously X94) or 5 service. If you are travelling on the number 5 bus, check to make sure it stops at Corwen (not all on this service do).
We now meet the T3 bus that arrives in Corwen at 16.23 (leaves Wrexham 15:30). Please let us know (when you book) if you wished to be collected, so we can reserve you a seat in the pick up vehicle. Please note that we cannot meet any other buses.
From Corwen, we are a 15 minute taxi ride away. This normally costs around £10. If possible book your taxi in advance as they can be difficult to get hold of at short notice.
Taxi telephone numbers:
Waterloo House: 01490 412333 (M-F 9-5 only)
Ty Nant Taxi : 07725 127446 (much more expensive as not based in corwen)
Make for Corwen, which lies on the A5. Leaving Corwen heading west on the A5, go straight on at the traffic lights (about 1 mile west of Corwen). Shortly after, almost opposite the new Rhug Organic Farmshop on your left, take the next right signed to Betws Gwerfil Goch. (N.B. If you are driving south along the A494, you will meet the A5 at the aforementioned traffic lights, where you turn right.) Take the second road on the left (exactly 0.4 miles from the A5 ) and continue for another two miles on the narrow farm road. Vajraloka is at the very end of this road (where the tarmac ends!).
