Property code: BN294

Situated adjacent to the historic farmstead and the only surviving water-powered corn mill on the river, this charming former granary has been beautifully converted into an inviting hideaway fit for romantic escapes.

Positioned next to the 18th century farmstead with its adjoining stone outbuildings and mill, this property enjoys a peaceful and idyllic location. Just beyond the watermill runs the River Honddu, now regarded as one of Europe’s most important rivers for its rare selection of wildlife including otters, salmon, British crayfish, kingfishers and lesser horseshoe bats. Set out on foot with your canine companion for a private stroll along the riverbank or delve into the ancient woodland, which is amassed with bluebells and wood anemones in the spring. Continue walking to reach the historic Georgian town of Brecon (0.5 miles), where you will find a good selection of shops, cafes and restaurants. Or jump in the car to reach the ancient hill fort of Pen-y Crug (2 miles), which boasts wonderful views from the top.

Accessed via a flight of stone steps, this delightful former granary has been tastefully refurbished to blend old and new, with its solid oak flooring, traditional Welsh dresser and contemporary fixtures and fittings. Rustle up romantic meals for two in the bespoke oak kitchen, where you will find an oven, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and washing machine. A separate scullery houses the freezer. Dine at the good-sized table before sinking into one of the inviting armchairs or sofa in the lounge area. Settle in for an evening of TV, films or music while your pooch warms up beside the roaring gas-fuelled fire. Afterwards, enjoy a long hot soak in the cast iron bath, over which there is a shower. With a slanted ceiling, exposed beam and cosy oriental rugs, the king-size bedroom is a cosy space in which to rest weary heads at the end of the day.

Outside, there is a garden complete with a BBQ and furniture for enjoying a romantic meal alfresco while your four legged friend roams safely nearby.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

An amazing place, the flat was beautiful in its decoration, we had everything we needed. It was lovely and clean. The whole mill was so interesting, loved the chickens and Noel and Susie were really interesting to talk to.

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.
