This Old Water Mill was a threshing mill, built hundreds of years ago; the date 1773 has been etched on the extension, so one would assume that the main building was built some time prior to that.
It still has its wheel, millpond and leat and has been converted to a relaxing, comfortable and cosy cottage with all modern conveniences, yet by keeping the stonework and the beams exposed, retains its original character and olde worlde charm.
Sleeps 10 + 1 (Z-bed) + cots – 4 bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms
Easy access for wheelchair user
Built on a slope, the upper door opens into the very spacious open plan living area – hand crafted kitchen with all mod cons including fridge-freezer, dishwasher, microwave, family size electric oven, gas hob with 5 burners (including large burner for wok), dining area with hand made dining table and chairs, and sitting room with old wood-burner, tv/dvd player.
From your chair in the Old Water Mill sitting room you can enjoy magnificent views across the fields to Llanllwni mountain from large picture windows; one of the large pulley wheels which used to be turned by the water wheel is on the wall and part of the barrel of the threshing machine has been re-incarnated as a log basket!
A door from the living room leads into the twin bedroom with two adult size single beds, wardrobe and dressing table with drawers under and large shower-room with toilet and hand basin en-suite. This room has been designed with wheelchair users in mind and a shower wheelchair is available on request.
From the living room another door leads to easy stairs down to the lower ground floor utility area with washer/dryer, entrance hall and side door.
At that level are two double bedrooms with four-poster beds, wardrobes and dressing-tables with drawers under and en-suite bathrooms with toilet, hand basin and bath with shower over.
There is also a large bedroom with two sets of adult-size bunk beds and pine chair-bed (for +1), wardrobe, dressingtable, chest of drawers and en-suite bathroom with toilet, hand basin a bath with shower over.
At the back of the Old Water Mill is its own patio with large barbecue and garden furniture.

The cottage is carpeted throughout and is centrally heated; each radiator has its own thermostatic control as well as the cottage thermostat. The oil usage is registered by meter and charged at cost, as is the electricity. Baskets of logs for the stove are available at cost.
