A beautifully converted 18th century mill, charmingly restored, it retains many original features with exposed solid stone walls, beams and vaulted ceilings. Furnished in natural tones with a country living feel and guests' comfort in mind; enjoy leisurely family meals around a farmhouse table in the rustic fitted kitchen/diner, one step up from the sitting room, which overlooks the grounds, with a Inglenook and wood burning stove. Stairs lead from here to a twin room and another bedroom/sitting room on the first floor that opens to a decked balcony - a lovely spot to relax and admire the view out over the stream and Dowrog Common Nature Reserve. On the ground floor, down 2 steps, there is a family bathroom and two bedrooms; a cosy twin with stone walls and a romantic double with a four-poster bed that will be sure to delight.
The Mill overlooks a stream and surrounding fields, and offers a large, lawned garden which stretches down to the stream and gives plenty of space to unwind - if you are lucky you may see the heron fishing in the stream; a real retreat.
Tucked away from it all, yet only approximately 1.5 miles from the historic, tiny city of St Davids; the smallest city in Europe with excellent facilities, a Cathedral and the Bishop's Palace. Spend your days exploring the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path or on the glorious, sandy Whitesands beach, popular with surfers and officially voted one of the best beaches in the world. A boat trip from St Justinian's to Ramsey Island promises sightings of stunning birds and wildlife - not be missed.
A quality holiday retreat in a delightful setting, perfect for family celebrations and suitable for all ages to get away from it all whatever the season.
Care with children due to the stream.
Rhodiad Mill was converted in 1965 by the owner’s mother. The Mill used the water from the Dowrog Common, the wetlands behind, to power a water wheel, to grind wheat. Its dates are unclear, though part of the mill is said to be fifteenth century. The flour made by the miller, was used to make the staple diet of the Welsh manual worker, pudrum. It was a grain cake, not very appetising, but sustaining! The Leat was the water ditch bringing water to power the wheel, and it can be seen downstream, from the bridge, rejoining the River Alun. This is the river passing between the Cathedral and the Bishop’s Palace. Rhodiad y Brenin means royal road. Presumably its connection as part of the route to the port of Fishguard, meant that many travellers including, monarchs travelled through the village. Medieval west Wales with its cathedral and many religious establishments, plus its agriculture, fisheries and mining have disappeared as activities, but tourism has given a fresh lease of life to the area, which is where the Mill has rejoined mainstream economic life to the area.
