Directions to Trealy Farm, Mitchel Troy, Near Monmouth NP25 4BL

Finding Trealy Farm

Finding Trealy Farm is EASY if you follow the written directions (see below). Please do NOT follow SatNav which WILL lead you astray! Allow extra time for your journey and parking on the day.

On 25th May we will put a sign (BEWARE … it may be removed) to Trealy Farm on the B4293, opposite the driveway to the farm. When you turn into the driveway at Red House Farm drive STRAIGHT (do NOT turn, do NOT ask for directions at Red House Farm or at any house near the road). It is ½ a mile to Trealy Farm and everything will be clearly sign-posted on arrival.

Most of the parking at Trealy Farm is “Field Parking” which is a 6-minute walk from covered arena. This “Field Parking” is immediately to your right after you cross the cattle-grid into Trealy Farm. Parking in the farmyard and along the orchard / drive is pre-allocated (let me know if you need to park near the arena).

The driveway to Trealy Farm has deteriorated over the winter and you need to drive VERY slowly. Low-slung vehicles are not best suited to the driveway or parking in the field. There are car-sharing / car-pooling apps like liftshare.com and https://www.blablacar.co.uk that could help you to link up with other participants, share the journey and reduce the numbers of vehicles. Some of you could park at the church in Mitchel Troy and share a car from there. You could also share lifts via the local Connected Riding Facebook Group: “Connected Riding training uk south”.

If you are coming along the B4293 from the west (i.e. Raglan / Abergavenny / Newport etc), the Trealy Farm driveway is to your right. If you are travelling from the east (ie Monmouth) you will turn left into Red House Farm / Trealy Farm driveway. Hanging on the fence, to the left side of the driveway entrance, is a poster for “First Milk”.

When you are on the B4293 driving from the west and are close to the turning it looks like THIS ….

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the west, if you are car-pooling at Mitchel Troy church, keep on going. If you are going to Trealy Farm, turn to the right, opposite the Red House Farm bus-stop …

 

Opposite this bus stop, turn to Trealy Farm. Go STRAIGHT (pass by Red House farmyard and farmhouse to your left) … straight onto the road through the fields and up the hill …
