Directions - From Bishop's Castle Town Centre follow the high street down hill until facing the Church, turn right here signposted Sarn Church. Proceed uphill away from the Town until reaching a T junction, turn left. Follow this road along the Ridgeway until you reach a junction, this resembles a crossroads but the priorities are different. Take the small middle road of the three ahead, the wooden Kerry Ridgeway Long Distance Footpath sign is the most accurate pointer. Follow the land until the road drops into a dip then pass an only telephone box on the left. Upper Castlewright Cottage will be seen shortly afterwards on the left with parking in a gateway opposite.
