The ground floor also a utility room and an open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and a sitting area, whilst on the first floor there is as a sitting room. Outside there is off road parking, an electric car charging point and a front covered terrace with a hot tub, furniture and a BBQ, as well as a front and side lawned garden.

The Old Mill is a fabulous place to holiday in Wales, at any time of year.


I stayed here as part of a group earlier in the year and wanted to add my review. A stunning property, wonderful, helpful and friendly hosts, great layout and the covered hottub area is a superb idea! 10/10 for cleanliness and service! Surrounding area is stunning and ripe for exploring, lots of well marked paths right next to the property. I highly recommend a walk up Great Rhos (the views are incredible) followed by good drink in the hottub! Other walks include the Heart of Wales Line Trail which runs nearby, and the Llandegley Rocks area, for more beautiful views. For a day trip, you also can?t beat the A44 drive over the mountains to Aberystwyth, if you manage to arrive there just before sunset, you are in for quite a sight. Lovely place, lovely area, will be back!

Came to stay here with friends for a birthday weekend. Amazing cottage, being on the middle of nowhere kept everyone off their phones, we loved the hot tub, would recommended!

Excellent rural retreat for the family.
As a family of 6 we visited here during the February half term. Considering this is rural Powys the cottage was easy enough to get to and is well served by a main road that is far enough away from the house to not disturb you. When we arrived we were met by the friendly owners and shown around the Old Mill. It is very well furnished and finished, and it is obvious that the owners have put a lot of thought and care into making a comfortable home. Pros The cottage is very spacious - we were never on top of each other. The hot tub is under cover but still has a pleasant view and felt 'outside'. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Tesco deliver here. Cons There wasn't anything to spoil the holiday There are a lot is stairs as the Mill has 3 floors so this would be an issue if you struggle with stair's, although there is a bathroom on the ground floor. As you would expect this has some low beams and doorways - mainly on the top floor. Overall this is the perfect place for a quiet country get away surrounded by fields and walks if you want to get out but plenty of space and comfort if you want to stay in.
