General Info

Superb detached, stone-built former 18th century mill, next to the owners’ working livestock farm, just outside of the small hamlet of Dolau and eight miles from Llandrindod Wells. Benefiting from being on an acre of private grounds, and with direct access to a small river at the end of the garden, this rural retreat is ideal for a family or a group of friends looking for a Powys holiday to remember. Set over three floors, The Old Mill is immaculately presented throughout, with character wooden beams which have been beautifully preserved. Park your car, walk up the five steps to the covered terrace and pause to notice the splendid hot tub, just waiting for you to have a soak in later on. Enter through the front door and to left of the hall there’s a convenient shower room, as well as a utility room and a storage room, which doubles as a dog room with a cage available. Continue through to the outstanding open planned living area with a kitchen, dining area and a sitting area, excellently-equipped with an American-style fridge/freezer, a Rangemaster cooker and an oak dining table with enough space for the whole party to enjoy as delicious meal.

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.
