This enchanting property provides a unique experience for friends looking to gather in a pretty waterside setting. The property sleeps up to ten guests and is located between the villages of Llangynidr and Bwlch.

Located just 1.5 miles from Llangynidr and Bwlch, guests have a few villages to explore not far from the property. Crickhowell is slightly further afield (8 miles) and is worth a visit to peruse the independent shops, farm shops, Black Mountains Smokery, restaurants, and pubs. Whether you are looking for an active outdoor holiday or a relaxing break just pottering around, this property offers something for everyone. Explore the Brecon Beacons National Park on foot or by bicycle, or simply watch nature from the banks of the River Usk or even from the window of the mill with a warming cup of tea in hand.

Painted by numerous artists in the past, this mill has really captured creative imaginations and creates a unique space that feels very special indeed. The large sitting room is a great place to gather friends or family together and boasts 18th-century wood panelling with oak beams, a high ceiling and large windows. There’s a grand fireplace with an open fire for cosy nights in, and comfortable sofas and chairs where you can sit and relax. Guests will also find an 8-foot snooker table, piano, organ, music system, and dining table and benches. Sit by the observation window where the original waterwheel was located or keep your family entertained in the second lounge which has a sofa, chairs, and TV with Sky Sports and a DVD player. There’s plenty of space for meals to be prepared in the kitchen which is fully equipped with everything you will need. There’s also a multi-purpose utility room with boot storage and a washing machine and tumble dryer – handy after muddy walks. Four of the bedrooms are located downstairs – two twins and two doubles. There is also a bathroom with a separate shower on this floor. The top floor double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. A games room with dartboard and table tennis completes this property and gives it yet another reason why it’s great for groups of friends

Guests can enjoy the well-kept garden which has its own pond. Here you can sit on the picnic table and chairs and enjoy your evening meal al fresco. To explore a little further, you can go through the gate and meander through the meadows; there are 11 acres of land available to explore.

Comfortable and well equipped with fantastic location and views

Wonderful period Mill situated right on the river Usk. We had a couple of days of quite heavy rain, which saw the Usk rise to almost 5m during our stay. This didn't however detract from an amazing break in this picturesque part of the Brecons. The gardens were fabulous and the dogs enjoyed walking along the river banks. The Mill had comfortableRead more beds and plenty of room for all of us. The snooker table and games room were a real bonus for us. We would love to return to Buckland Mill in the future, but probably during the fishing season. Hide

The Brecon Beacons is a vast, mountainous and rural region of Wales. Stretching 42 miles from east to west and covering an area of 520 square miles, the Brecon Beacons is dominated by the National Park of the same name. Split into three main areas, the Black Mountain in the west, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Fforest Fawr in the middle, and the Black Mountains in the east; each is a wild, bold and inspiring place to visit on holiday. With 1232 miles of public trails which includes the 95-mile-long Beacons Way, it’s a wayfarer’s delight. One of four Dark Skies Reserves in the UK (and one of 11 in the world), stargazers can delight in the open night sky, to enjoy the darkness in full splendour. The Fforest Fawr is a UNESCO Global Geopark because of its important geology and a need to conserve and protect the area from negative over development.

Stay at a self-catering cottage in the mountains and cascading woodlands or out on the moors; you can also stay in one of the Brecon Beacon’s lovely towns like Hay-on-Wye, Crickhowell, Llangorse or Brecon. Outdoor lovers will enjoy a choice of easy to challenging treks up and around Sugar Loaf Mountain, Carn Pica, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad, Pen y Fan, or Hatterall Ridge (and many more besides). Take in uniquely Welsh attractions like Dan-yr-Ogof (the National Showcaves Centre for Wales), The Big Pit Mining Museum, Llanthony Priory, Carreg Cennen Castle, Fourteen Locks, and the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway. Wildlife abounds in the Brecon Beacons, and it’s a great place to spot red kites and discover the successful story of their reintroduction to the UK’s skies at the Red Kite Centre. There’s so much to do for outdoor lovers and extreme sports fans here, so why not book your self-catering holiday in the Brecon Beacons today?

Our holiday cottages across the Brecon Beacons have been carefully selected. From dog-friendly cottages in the countryside to large farmhouses on the mountainsides and everything in between, we have a holiday in the Brecon Beacons to suit you.
