Cusop Mill Cottage is set in a glorious location on a very quiet lane, only one and a half miles from Hay-on-Wye and right beside The Dulas Brook. Only a few minutes drive right up to Hay Bluff where the wild ponies graze and the most stunning views.
Footpaths pass the cottage leading to Offa's Dyke Path, Hay Bluff and The Black Mountains this is the perfect place to stay for anyone looking for a comfortable cottage with superb hill walking straight from the door, yet an easy walk or only a few minutes drive down the hill to the always "buzzing" little town of Hay.
Cusop Mill Cottage has been superbly renovated with great style and flair ensuring the period feel of the property which dates from 1780 has been retained yet making the property a very interesting place to stay.
Sleeps 7 - 4 bedrooms
A completely newly built kitchen at the back of the cottage with an integrated electric double oven cooker and microwave, dishwasher, fridge and a freezer box and a lovely new electric Rayburn - ensuring the kitchen and dining room are always warm; and there are original flag stone floors but with the benefit of underfloor heating.
Throughout the cottage there are numerous interesting photographs, pictures, painting and prints and some really lovely pieces of furniture and fabrics.
A downstairs cloakroom: With a hand basin and toilet.
A big utility room with a second fridge with a freezer, washing machine and dryer, a sink and ample storage and work space.

The sitting room is warm and cosy with lots of character, sofas and chairs and again a large wood burning stove. TV with Freeview.
There is a large framed copy of an original photograph of Cusop Mill as it was at the turn of the last century and visually there is very little difference to the property now as then - except the woodland and hedge to the fields opposite has grown.
