THE OLD CORN MILL
Take time out from the hustle and bustle and relax in the Welsh mountains. Our 18th century corn mill has been converted into a spacious yet cosy family home.
This beautiful, old building is set in 2 acres of secure gardens nestled at the edge of a little village.
From this character packed property you can explore all that North Wales has to offer and cosy up by the log fire in the evening.
It's the perfect setting for a big family holiday or get-together with friends.
A beautifully renovated corn mill on the edge of Snowdonia, surrounded by fields with sheep, chickens and cows as your neighbours.
The open plan living room is packed with character and is set up with a log burner, large corner sofa and long dining table. The central heating and wood burning fire make this spacious, double height room warm and cosy, even in the winter months.
The modern country kitchen is fully kitted out to meet all your culinary needs. A large range cooker, coffee machine, microwave and full height fridge freezer means that you can stock up and cook up a storm after an exciting day exploring the majestic sights of North Wales.
There are 4 large bedrooms set across 2 levels which can accommodate up to 8 guests:
Downstairs- One of the downstairs double bedrooms gives wonderful views of the hawthorn tree where the woodpecker and other local birds eat their breakfast. The other looks out onto the patio area where the clematis blooms in summer. The third bedroom can be set up as a twin or super king bed to suit your needs.
Upstairs - One large super king bedroom. All double beds are fitted with with dual controlled electric blankets and extra throws which ensure your beds are cosy and welcoming even on the coldest of winter nights. The 2 super king beds have down filled mattress toppers which make it almost impossible to want to leave once you get in.
All bedrooms have some storage space for clothes to allow you to unpack your essentials for your stay.
There are two bathrooms (one on each floor) one with shower cubicle, one with bath and shower head which is perfect to soak those aching muscles after a long walk or a hike up Snowdon.
We are pet friendly and welcome your furry friends to enjoy the holiday with you. We have no limits on breeds or numbers.

House rules & safety
Smoking - Smoking is not permitted in the house. If you wish to smoke outside please make sure you dispose of your butts responsibly. A small pot is provided and we would ask these only be placed in a bin when completely out.
Pets- Please help to keep our gardens safe for all to enjoy by picking up after your pets. Please do not leave pets unattended/alone in the property for any period of time.
Livestock -We have free range chickens which we secure in a run when pets stay and the neighbouring fields often hold sheep and cows. Please help to keep your pets from 'worrying' the chickens and neighbouring animals.
Children- Please ensure children are supervised in the grounds. Due to the nature of our rural location, there is water (the stream) and uneven land. All cut grass and lawned areas are very safe for everyone to enjoy. Streams edges have been left to grow wild so that they are clearly visible to all.
Security - We have CCTV set up to protect the driveway. Our lovely quiet village is a really safe place to be, we simply set this up for guests peace of mind. We also have smart smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors throughout the house so that you can feel safe for the duration of your stay.
We hope these few simple rules and safety features help to keep our old mill safe and enjoyable for you throughout your stay.
