Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The old water mill has recently been renovated in to a two bedroom, 5 star rated holiday let and provides a perfect base from which to explore the local area. During the renovation much care was taken to retain the original character of the property and all the Oak and Douglas Fir used was sourced from the sustainably managed woodland right here on the farm.
Features such as a traditional red phone box which has been converted in to a shower, a wood burning stove, and a beautiful conservatory overlooking the passing stream make the mill a truly unique place to stay. There is a modern well equipped kitchen with a slate worktop and the entire downstairs is fitted with underfloor heating.

The South Wales region
South Wales combines outstanding natural beauty and lively city life. The vibrant cities of Cardiff and Bristol are less than 45 minutes drive away from Cwm Cayo whilst the stunning Monmouthshire countryside is right on your doorstep. The Brecon Beacons National Park makes for a wonderful day trip and they nearby Wye Valley plays host to a variety of outdoor activities.
Usk is most famous for its fishing and flowers, often winning floral competitions such as Britain in bloom. If you’re enjoying a walking holiday or golf weekend in Wales, be sure to spend a day or more in this historic town. You’ll find us nestling quietly in the gentle Monmouthshire hills, just along the lazy banks of the River Usk.
As you’ll soon discover, the town of Usk is steeped in history, from the ruins of a Norman castle to the seventeenth century buildings that adorn the cobbled streets. It's no wonder our visitors tell us it’s like stepping back in time.
But you’ll still find plenty to see and do here. Walking around the town, you’ll find antique shops and clothing boutiques with a splash of local flavour. With all this to see, Usk has to be the perfect day trip in Wales – but with so many hotels and restaurants, you might be tempted to linger here and call it a holiday…
