One of our most romantic! Argoed Mill is a stone built Victorian converted mill enjoying a peaceful location in the beautiful upper Wye valley - photos here. Spend wonderful days here next to the waterfall, your balcony over-looking the ‘wheel race’. The interior is spacious for two, and unashamedly romantic. You'll find original art on every wall, comfortable sofas, and a cosy modern wood-burning stove. Spot kingfishers, dippers and otters from your balcony, eat organic veggies from the kitchen garden and free range eggs from the resident hens, play pool on your own pool table in the den. Argoed is a fine retreat for lovers, walkers, artists, fishermen and budding pool champions alike.The artist owners live just next door in the mill cottage, but you have plenty of space and your own private garden.

It was a great place for two people. We loved the space and the pool table downstairs. Beautiful location and Debs was a great hostess.
Bus stop at end of drive, trains to Llandrindod Wells or Caersws.
The mill is fully centrally heated and has a woodburning stove in the living area.

A beautiful, romantic cottage. We had a very relaxing long weekend with terrible weather but we managed to get out on our bikes to the gorgeous Elan Valley trail which is only 10 minutes away. I'm much better at pool now than when we arrived.
What a fantastic place to stay! Deb was really lovely and the mill was incredible, a superb old building that has been done up very tastefully. The whole place is spacious, relaxing and comfortable. The claw-foot bath and wood-burning stove were particular favourites, and we made very good use of the pool table! It's in a fantastic location near the Elan valley. I would highly reccommend the Argoed Mill to anyone looking for a luxurious and tranquil break!
We had a fantastic time at Argoed Mill. The mill is fantastic and very relaxing; with pool table, comfortable bed, and all beautifully decorated and maintained. The countryside around is beautiful, with Elan Valley a particular highlight!
Our second visit to this beautiful place and we enjoyed it as much as the first time (perhaps more?) The conversion is large and attractive, the bed is the most comfortable I've ever slept on, the sound of the water gushing past is relaxing and every part of the place is relaxing and comfortable. We loved reading in front of the woodburner, wallowing in the deep bath by the window, visiting the Elan Valley and Hay on Wye and just enjoying a few days of a slower pace of life. I'm sure we'll be back.
Our stay at Argoed Mill was just perfect! Deb and Tim were so welcoming and we loved all their furry friends at the Mill too :) We had the best time, a lovely long weekend away for our anniversary in a gorgeous place. So much to see and do on the surrounding area and plenty of tips and advice from Deb and Tim. A homely cottage, so cosy and warm with the wood burner, an amazing bed and a great feature of having the pool table downstairs too. Love this place, we will definitely be back x
An absolutely fantastic time, wonderful hosts and a beautiful cottage. We spent 4 days at Argoed Mill and it was heaven. Great location in truly stunning and beautiful countryside. The scenery was like an amazing watercolour. The cottage was devine and very romantic and I would recommend it to any couple wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of City life for a totally relaxing break. Getting there was easy with great driving roads around the cottage. Lovely walks and pretty towns like Hay on Wye on your doorstep with a yummy food shop called the Hay Deli. I promise you will not be disappointed. Thank you Debbie for a wonderful time. Best wishes Adam
A great place for a romantic break in a sympathetically converted mill.With plenty of space to relax,cook,bathe play pool or watch the fire.Owners very friendly,dogs,ponies and the cat just as lovely.Good location for visiting holiday spots and towns in the area. We will most definitely be back. Thank's for a lovely long weekend.
We had a wonderful stay at Argoed Mill. The cottage was beautiful and we enjoyed the log fire and pool table. It's a lovely area for walking and canoeing.
We had an amazing time here! We came for our honeymoon and it was perfect, the house is gorgeous and the bath tub is great. the owners were lovely, and we enjoyed spending time with them and all of the animals. Would love to come again!
Our second time visiting Argoed Mill was just as incredible, if not even more so. The perfect place to relax, share some quality time and to explore the amazing surrounding countryside, the Mill has become our favourite place to holiday. The new bath is huge and luxurious, the bed is super comfy and the whole place is just beautiful. Tim and Debs are so lovely and friendly too. We'll definitely be going back a third time - and a fourth, a fifth, and so on!
The mill is beautiful very peaceful surroundings, inside is cosy spacious and decorated within keeping of the building Just lovely would go again without a doubt, the owners are really lovely and welcoming, Equipped with everything you need Amazing bed lovely comfy bed
The location of this cottage is perfect. Right next to a waterfall so the relaxing sound of the water can be heard through the window and balcony. You can sit outside on the patio listening to the water and the birds tweeting. The odd bonus of a red kite soaring over or even a miltary jet flying low through the valley for a bit of excitement. The mill itself is beautiful with wooden floors and beamed ceilings, beautifully decorated and furnished. The log fire is great for setting the romantic mood. The bed is soooo comfortable and snug. There is plenty to do nearby from the red kite feeding station to the 7 dams/reservoirs or the Brecon Beacons if you fancy a day out. I will definately be returning here for a romantic break or just to unwind.
What a lovely and relaxing place to stay - it was so very hard to leave. We had everything we needed, including the most comfortable bed ever! The area is fantastic for walking, as the views are outstanding in this beautiful part of Wales.
We had a lovely relaxing stay at this beautiful cottage :) It had everything you need for a great stay. We enjoyed playing pool & enjoying the log fire. We will be visiting again!
We had a great stay in this charming little property. Love the way it has been sympathetically renovated, and the open plan layout was perfect for us. Unfortunately we didn't get to use the log burner as it was too warm but the pool table got it's fair share of use! Great location in the middle of the Welsh hills, with lots of walks, activities, pubs and views that kept us entertained for the duration of our stay. Hope to visit again!
We loved our time at Argoed Mill. We arrived tired and stressed and left rested and relaxed. The weather was very mixed during our stay but we managed some beautiful walks (highly recommend walking from Rhayader to Gilfach nature reserve). The Mill was extremely well equipped with a good area to clean muddy boots and a washer for those soaked layers, lots of hot water to bathe in and a lovely log burner to warm up in front of. We'd love to go back - rain or shine (so much to do inside and out!)
Debs met us as we arrived and was very warm and welcoming. The mill is so lovely and of course the pool table, huge bath, lovely log burner and unbelievably comfy bed made our honeymoon. The setting is idyllic and having our own personal waterfall was the cherry on the cake. Lovely walks to and around the dams as well as closer by along the river. Thank you for sharing the mill with us, it was an escape and just what we wanted.
What a relaxing, peaceful and beautifully converted Mill to take a break in. The environment immediately helped us leave our busy lives behind and with the waterfall cascading behind the Mill we were transported in to blissful holiday mode. We didn't know the surrounding area but were blown away with it's beauty and stunning views. A delightful place to visit and would strongly recommend a stay.
We loved every minute of our stay at Argoed Mill. Sad to leave, but hopefully return soon
We had an amazing time at Argoed Mill, the cottage is beautifully decorated, comfortable and private, there's plenty to do around the area (amazing walks, rivers, lakes, forests) and inside the cottage (pool table, dvds, board games, books). The location is perfect, with a small waterfall right in your backyard. We hope to stay there again!
We had a lovely time, the cottage is wonderful and the perfect base for long walks and cosy evenings in front of the fire
Cosy, warm, relaxing, bliss... A lovely place to recuperate and unwind! The comfiest bed I've ever stayed in and the bath is spectacular!
Thank you for a wonderful stay. The Mill is so cosy and comfy and warm, it's true about the bed - it really is the comfiest bed I've ever slept in! Loved the pool table, the library, the bath, the fire, the bed, the big sofas, the peace and quiet, the area, just everything. And, bonus, a dishwasher! Amazing. Thank you thank you thank you, From Joey and Simpson.
Argoed Mill was the perfect place to celebrate a 40th birthday. Cosy, quirky and relaxing. The log burner, comfy bed and deep bath all helped to unwind. The weather was awful but it really didn't matter. A gem of a property.
This was a truly wonderful place to relax and unwind. The photos don't do it justice. It has the real wow factor when you get up the stairs. The bed is seriously comfortable, and so is the roll top bath! With plenty to do in the local area you can enjoy the cosy nights in front of the log fire, or go for an adventure in the wonderful Welsh countryside. Our highlight was the Elan Valley walk, which we picked up in Rhayader. Would highly recommend and we will definitely be back again!!
What a lovely and relaxing place to stay! The location was ideal, the pool table and bath were brilliant to have and we would definitely recommend Argoed Mill to all our friends and family. Thank you.
We had the most wonderful Christmas break at Argoed. The rain and wind meant we didn't explore much at all but we were more than happy to hunker down with the log fire and hot baths. Absolute bliss. We really appreciated the little touches too, like the house being decorated with greenery for Christmas, fairy lights, extra wood and even special roasting pans for our Christmas dinner. It was an incredible way to spend our very first Christmas as Mr and Mrs. Thank you
A secluded haven....the perfect location for a much needed break and a beautifully presented cottage. All of the little touches make it such a romantic and peaceful stay. The downstairs of the property has a pool table along with wall to wall book shelves and tourist information leaflets. So useful when planning where to go. Upstairs is just magnificent - a log burner, fully equipped kitchen, the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in and also a roll top bath in the bedroom. Listening to the howling wind and rain outside whilst cwtched up with a glass of red is pure bliss. Our first Argoed Mill visit definitely won't be our last.
Beautiful accommodation, we managed to pick a week with awful weather but it certainly wasn't a chore enjoying all the mill has to offer - the pool table, the log burner, the glorious bath! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing break.
Really lovely relaxing break. Argoed mill is beautifully decorated and the bath an added bonus after exploring the surrounding area. Deb made us feel very welcome. Will definitely be returning soon.
My husband and I absolutely loved our weekend at Argoed Mill, it was perfect for a romantic weekend away. We loved spending the evenings in front of the fire and playing countless games of pool in the library/games room. The bath in the bedroom was a real feature, it was lovely to come back to after walking the beautiful walks in the Elan valley (highly recommended, the views are spectacular) We also couldn't believe how comfy the bed is! we even searched for a label on the mattress so we would try and buy one like it for our home! After putting photos of our weekend up on facebook, we have loads of people contacting us asking where we went as it looked amazing! We couldn't recommend this quirky little place enough! :) we love to go back some time!
The cottage was lovely - almost perfect. Despite the living/sleeping arrangements being one open plan space, it still felt cosy and yet spacious, with just the right balance of 'cottagey' comfort - the sofas were very comfy - and mod-cons (modern kitchen area with everything you need). All this is on the first floor, with the main bathroom and toilet on the ground floor - a little bit of a trek if you need to go in the middle of the night, but probably worth it for the extra space in the living area. The original artwork all over the walls is also a nice touch. The use of the downstairs room as a sort of snug/library/games room is absolute genius - I finally learnt to play pool (badly) and we spent several happy hours down there working our way through the CD collection and having a laugh over the pool table, such a nice change from watching telly or being on-line. There is no WiFi, which my other half was a bit uncertain about, but in the end I think he appreciated the change for a couple of days, and anyway he got to beat me at pool! Our only suggestion would be one more side/table lamp in the main lounge area - so that in the evenings you can turn off all the other lights and just have the lounge lit. But that might just be us. Would love to come back for a longer stay as we didn't get much time to explore (although Rhayader is a lovely little place).
We had a wonderful stay at Argoed Mill. Thank you.
A lovely cottage in a lovely area! The cottage was wonderfully decorated and furnished, and the bed and bath were the cherry on top. The surrounding area was breath-taking - a perfect place for a complete get away!
We had a lovely week in the mill. It is a great place to stay as a couple and to get away from it all for a bit. The bath is great, as is the amazing wood burner, we definitely recommend going in September/October time to catch the Autumn colours but still chilly enough for a fire. The owners are lovely, and happy to leave you be, or chat as much as you like. We recommend visiting the Hafren forest and the dams, it's such beautiful country. One thing we felt needed saying was that the property is literally just on the A470 road, so there is traffic noise in the day, which dies off at night. It was just a bit of a shock when we arrived as we expected something off the beaten track. You don't notice in the property though, and the comforts of the place and surroundings really make up for it.
Debs was lovely and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble without being over bearing. She really helped make it a lovely break. The accommodation was great and an excellent base from which to explore Wales. We loved the wood burner which made the room lovely and toasty - can't wait to come back!
We had a wonderful time exploring the area around Argoed Mill. The hosts were lovely and the accommodation was cosy and comfortable. We look forward to making a trip back in the future.
Really beautiful cottage, lovely living space and felt exceedingly relaxing - after 2 weeks we were very refreshed! Cute enclosed (and completely dog proof) garden, which our dog loved. The huge bath by the bed is a real treat, and the wood-burner (which we didn't use in August!) looks great too and I can imagine this would be an amazing retreat in winter. Good fun having a pool table too! A couple of minor reflections are that 1) if you are seeking true tranquility this cottage is just off the A470 main road and this does produce some noise, especially during the day - its not obtrusive but is there, and 2) it is not really possible to walk from the cottage given its location on a busy road - but there are lots of lovely walks within a 10 minute drive. Overall we loved this place and would certainly recommend!
This is the second time we have stayed at this property and it won't be the last. Idyllic setting, wonderful hosts and warm enough weather for a spot of wild swimming. Who could ask for more? I would wholeheartedly recommend Argoed Mill to anyone looking to escape to Wales.
This is a great retreat. The bedroom bath is a real treat!
We absolutely fell in love with Argoed Mill. Such a beautiful property in a stunning location. We spent two nights away without our toddler and was a great place to reconnect. The waterfall running past the property was an added bonus, and we spent some relaxing evenings playing pool in the room downstairs. I can not wait to revisit this property.
"Stunning building, gorgeous decor and surroundings - perfect! Debs and Tim have gone out of their way to make our stay special. Plus our time here has been extra special because we got engaged! Will have fantastic memories, thank you' ~ Lee and Hazel
"This place has something for everyone, gorgeous setting, beautiful and romantic interior, (straight out of Country Living) lovely attention to detail, pool table, log fire and great dog walks. Thank you for your warm hospitality, this is a place we'll definitely like to come back to." ~ Phil, Vix and Bruce
"Even lovelier than the photos, and the prettiest place we've stayed. The bed was so immensely comfortable that it was hard to get out of it in the morning. In fact we ended up chucking out our creaky old bed when we got home and bought ourselves the exact same bed & mattress topper." ~ H.R. from Leeds
