Our address is Aberduna Hall, Maeshafn Road, Gwernymynydd, Mold CH7 5LE. You can use Google Maps to generate your route by car. Whilst our site postcode will get you to the rough location, it is not 100% exact for Sat Nav users. 

If you are travelling to Outside Lives from Mold:

  • Leave Mold on the A5119 (Ruthin Road) or following the A494 (Mold Bypass)
  • At the Gwernymynydd roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto the A494 and follow this road for 1.1 miles
  • Turn left onto the Maeshafn Road and follow this road past the first two properties on the right hand side, you will take the track on the right, next to Aberduna Farm. This will take you to Outside Lives, please keep left

You can obviously use these directions when travelling by bike / motorbike / walking etc. 

Please be aware that parking onsite is limited and as such, arranging a car share (if you are coming with friends/others) is advisable, as is using public transport, cycling or walking… if you are close enough to do so safely.


There are only two buses that you can take from Mold & Ruthin to get to Outside Lives, these are the X1 and the 2. There is only one bus that travels from Mold to Maeshafn and passes the end of the drive at Outside Lives, the other bus (the Mold to Ruthin bus) – stops at the end of the road. Please note that these are the only DIRECT buses.

You can find updated bus timetables on the M&H Coaches webpage (part 1 & 2 depending on where you are travelling from).


Community transport may also be an option for you if you need to get to Outside Lives but have no means of transport.

They provide accessible transport (Minibus/volunteer car scheme) and cover the Mold, Buckley & Deeside areas. Costs are usually calculated by the mile and as much notice as possible is preferred for bookings. Carers are also able to travel at no extra cost. To qualify for the community transport service you will need to be eligible for a bus pass. 

You can access more details by contacting the Welsh Border Community Transport. You can call them on 01244 544474 or email:
