How to get there
Vulcan Lodge - The Middleton is located in the middle of Wales. It is 2.5 hrs from Cardiff, Manchester and Birmingham airports and 4 hrs from Heathrow. The nearest railway station is 9 miles away in Llandrindod Wells. It is 32 miles from Hay-on-Wye. The Middleton is 3 miles south of Rhayader and is easily accessed off a slip road from the A470. The picture of the Lodge shows a green with a gate leading across the slip road to the building. There is intermittent traffic during the day but the road is very quiet after 6.00 pm. The river Wye runs at the back of the Lodge and is a very short walk away.
