From Lampeter town, take the Aberaeron road out of town until you see a garage on your left (sharp left-hand bend). Turn right here for Silian. Take this lane and proceed for approximately 1 mile until you reach a set of cross roads. Go straight across at the crossroads and as you proceed into Silian, bear left at the junction then take a right turn down a small lane towards the church. Bear right at the bottom and continue up the track, passing the church on your left and The Old Vicarage can be seen at the end.
