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.

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.

About the location
Llandrindod Wells 8 miles.
Dolau is a small hamlet in Powys, with a very pretty little railway station. Nearby, the town of Llandrindod Wells is centrally located in Mid Wales, and offers a variety of shops and pubs, as well as the pretty Lake Park and Temple Gardens, plus many hiking pathways in and around the town. The annual Victorian festival is held here in August when locals and businesses step back into the time of Victorian Llandrindod Wells - a spectacle not to be missed. Other attractions nearby are the National Cycling Museum, the Radnorshire Museum and nearby Abey Cwm Hir, resting place of Llywelyn, the last Welsh King (1282). Enjoy the nearby Hay on Wye Festival in late May or the Brecon Jazz festival in Mid August, or visit the Red Kite feeding station in Rhayader.
