about the property

A romantic holiday cottage for two in mid Wales with a Hot-Tub and its own pool table! Housed in a converted historic watermill this traditional Welsh holiday cottage has a charming interior and makes a great base for a holiday.

Named in The Times Top 50 UK self-catering properties ('best for couples')

One of our most romantic! Melin Argoed is a stone-built Victorian converted watermill enjoying a peaceful location in the beautiful upper Wye valley. Spend your 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, 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. You also have a hot tub and pool table.

Not suitable for children, babes in arms ok if visitors provide travel cot etc.

We had a fantastic time here - perfect hot tub next to the stream, great games room and lots of nice walking in the area (I strongly recommend Gilfach Nature Reserve). Deb was really helpful and gave us some good tips for walking too. We got lucky with some clear nights, stargazing in the hot tub was bliss.

We had a really magical time. The hot rob and pool table were fantastic, and the bed really comfy. The road was a little noisy but we would go again.

Thiis was our second stay at Melin Argoed and it remains one of our favourite places to stay. The main room is amaxing and the games room provides that something else to do when the log fire burns down. Love walking in the Elan Valley with the dog, would recommend this for a relaxing weekend.

Absolutely perfect mill house! Every area has been thoughtfully planned and designed for a wonderful cozy stay. The aha moment when you walk upstairs to the main living area is wonderful! We loved our evenings playing pool and darts and then relaxing in the hot tub by the waterfall. The evening walks down to the river to skip stones was so lush! Debs is very lovely and friendly and helpful with whatever you need. And I’m in love with her two miniature horses! Will definitely recommend and look to stay again.

Lovely place! Fabulous view if waterfall from the hot tub. Cosy wood burner. Friendly, helpful owner. Loved it!

Lovely cottage. Very quirky as expected, but nicely furnished and layout really great. We had a lovely two night break with total digital detox, playing pool, relaxing, reading and just talking. Liked the lounge and kitchen layout that meant you weren't cut off from everything if you were the one doing the cooking. Very nice to relax in the hot tub watching the stream and the blue tits, just a shame that we couldn't star gaze as it was cloudy both nights. Visited the Elan Valley dams and the Red Kite center inspite of the weather but would definitely like to come back when its not raining/misty.

A very romantic place to stay. Birdsong, a roaring log fire and a bath overlooking the woodland and from where you can listen to the rushing stream. The accommodation managed to be extremely spacious yet very cosy at the same time. Everything we might have needed was there and more besides. The hot tub overlooking the stream was very special and we loved watching the birds and the sheep from our secluded position. This is a perfect place to unwind.

We loved our stay at Melin Argoed. The Mill has been converted in such a thoughtful way. It's cosy, stylish and comfortable. The hot tub setting is so much better than we could have imagined. The river flowing like raging torrent making it all the more dramatic. It's set in a beautiful area of Wales just as good as the best of the north and the south. Looking forward to trying it out in the summer.
