This delightful 1800s stone-built riverside cottage is set in a quiet rural setting on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Mill House is ideal for walking, fishing, golf, horse riding, cycling, bird watching, canal adventures, canoeing or simply relaxing and enjoying the peaceful countryside setting. See salmon leaping in the river in September, and red kites circling overhead.
There are walks right from the door, although Mill House can also serve as an ideal base from which to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park, or venture eastwards to explore the pretty book town of Hay on Wye (15 miles).
