Farm Holiday Cottage
This ancient mill, which dates from the early 1700's, and was still in use during the 20th century, stands beside a stream in a wooded valley just a short distance from the farmhouse at Cornorion Fawr. Although the millwheel and machinery have long since gone (taken to equip a newer building further down the valley), this handsome newly converted three-storey stone and slate building still retains many original features, including its heavy wooden beams. The two bedrooms comfortably sleep four people, with provision for an extra two visitors on a bed settee in the top floor living room. There is a well equipped kitchen, a bathroom and a large garden beside a stream.
Although the mill at Cornorion Fawr stands in a wonderfully remote valley, it is only two-and-a-half miles from Llanfyllin, where there is a good selection of shops and friendly pubs. The hills hereabouts are criss-crossed with an inticate network of footpaths, so visitors can enjoy a local ramble, or undertake a more ambitious outing - perhaps as far as Lake Vyrnwy. Bird watchers will be able to see a wide range of species, including the rare Red Kite, and fishermen can catch trout in the farm pool.
The area is also noted for its waterfalls, and those who use a large scale map to seek them out will find their efforts well rewarded.
