Fantastic, unique property with huge ‘wow factor’. I took a group of friends away to celebrate my 50th Birthday and a great time was had by all! The windmill offers everything you need for a short break, is beautifully appointed and decorated and offered ample space for a party of 40-odd guests. I’m sure we’ll stay here again.

In this area, explore the Brecon Beacons National Park, the Blorenge, Sugar Loaf, and Skirrid Fawr Mountains. An ideal location for an outdoor break in Monmouthshire. Within close proximity of activities including cycling, rope climbing, pony trekking, hang gliding, canal boat hire, fishing and walking.
There are numerous award-winning restaurants nearby.
