Y Felin (The Mill)
- Unit 1
This stunning renovated 18th Century flour mill is newly renovated! It has fabulous gardens, with lovely views over the valley and only a stone's throw from Cardigan Bay, the coastal path and the fabulous beaches of West Wales.
Welcome to our beautiful converted Mill (Y Felin) near the sea! - We hope that you will it love as much as we do! The mill was originally built on the site in the 1700's and has undergone several incarnations through its long and varied history. We have hopefully put the original character back into the place and lovingly sourced a contemporary and traditional mix of furniture to make this special place the perfect escape for a romantic break or family holiday.
There is peace and quiet in abundance here, you can enjoy the tranquility and the birdsong. (at night, as there is little light pollution, you can gaze at the stars) Relax and drink in the lovely country views or take a trip to the coast which is only a short drive away. There are wonderful sites to enjoy in this area including watching dolphins from the beaches which are close by.
There are lovely country walks from the door and the coastal path and beautiful beaches of Cardigan Bay are only a few minutes away.
