Directions to Stradey Castle, Llanelli SA15 4PH
Stradey Castle lies between Furnace and Pwll on the western edge of Llanelli, less than 15 minutes’ drive from junction 48 on the M4. We are 10 minutes drive from the nearest Railway Station, with direct links to London Paddington. If you are using Satnav, please be aware that you may be taken straight past the entrance and in via a farm drive some way from the main house. To avoid this, look out for the Lodge (postcode SA15 4PH) and main entrance on the left, just beyond some new traffic lights, about half a mile along the B4308 coming up from the Furnace mini-roundabout.
