The Lowdown

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.

Perfectly placed...

This beautiful old mill has been converted with real style by Charlie and Spot - we loved the open living space, mix of modern and traditional touches, and fantastic wood burner. The back garden is a great space to hang out in. Local goodies on arrival were an added bonus, and Charlie and Spot hooked us up with all the info we needed. It’s perfectly placed for access to the coastline and the countryside, made a great base for our bank holiday weekend. Special!

The Mill is a truly magical place...

The Mill is a truly magical place - a stunningly stylish and cosily romantic bolthole in a wonderful location close to the beautiful Welsh coast. We so enjoyed all the thoughtful touches, from the amazingly delicious (and very much appreciated!) welcome hamper to the luxurious finishes - the softest bath mat we've ever set foot on, dreamy clouds of pillows with sumptuous bed linen, a stock of wood to make a fire in the cosy wood burner and beautiful wildlife books. Our little pup loved running around the gorgeous garden and exploring the wonderful Welsh coastal paths on the doorstep. Even more wonderful are the hosts - Spot and Charlie are two very special people who consistently went above and beyond to make sure our trip went like clockwork. They are so caring and helpful to their guests, and we were so pleased to get to know them. They pour so much care and attention to detail into The Mill, - it's clearly a labour of love for them and their thoughtfulness just shines through! Diolch, Spot and Charlie! xxx

Absolutely fabulous little find....

Absolutely fabulous little find! A lot of hard work has clearly gone into refurbishing this old mill and it is full of quirky and stylish touches. It is just perfect in terms of location; tucked away and also great access to the beach 5 mins drive away. We shall certainly be recommending this mill to friends and family to come and experience this gem for themselves! Thank you very much to Charlie & Spot who couldn't do enough for us. A great hamper welcome gift and even hand delivered fresh eggs from their chickens next door!! Thank you again!

Beautiful!

We had the best time ever in Wales. The Mill has been beautifully, sympathetically, restored to welcome guests. Charlie and Spot are a highly creative couple using local craftsmen and artists to enhance the perfect interior design. All the everyday gagets are there including local amazing coffee left for us to indulge! The location is perfect for walking, beach very close, a peaceful place to rest and enjoy the wonderful birdsong including ducks! You will also spot the wild orchids in the garden. This is an absolute gem, well done, it has to be a must stay place for everyone!
