The Old Mill
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. The French doors lead out onto the side garden, ideal for some alfresco dining whilst the corner leather sofa is perfect for relaxing on whilst the chef in the party prepares a delicious meal. This room is made warm and cosy by the underfloor electric heating, complete with zoned controls. Walk up the oak stairs to the first floor and into the sitting room, offering dual aspect Juliet balconies on both sides of the room and comfortable seating for seven in front of the Smart TV. Just off the rear of this sitting room is a twin bedroom, ideal for the children in your party. Continue up to the second floor and on your left is a double bedroom, whilst next to there is a further bedroom with 4’ double bed, for smaller members of your family. Opposite this room is a splendid king-size double bedroom, complemented by a built-in wardrobe and a feature pulley from the old mill’s grindstone. A stylish bathroom completes the luxurious accommodation at this charming cottage, ideal for relaxing in after a day out walking or cycling. On a summer’s day, you could play a game of cricket or football on the spacious, enclosed, lawned garden, or you could even have a paddle in the bordering stream. Alternatively, simply relax on the terrace with a glass of bubbly and watch the world go by as the children play with your four-legged friends. The local area offers excellent opportunities for walking, cycling or just taking in the lovely views of rolling hills and lush green meadows, whilst great days out can be had at the breathtaking Brecon Beacons and gorgeous Elan Valley. An outstanding property, in a stunning location, to be enjoyed no matter what time of year you decide to holiday.
