STS Grade 4+

An impressive former mill, a detached building with exposed stone walls and low beams idillically situated alongside the river Llyfni on the edge of the quiet seaside village of Pontllyfni, world famous for seatrout fishing. Also available is Salmon, Brown and Rainbow trout on 40 miles of rivers and/or 6 lakes! The large spacious lounge on the first floor is full of character, the original beams display 18th century carved graffiti and a large wood burning stove ensures a wonderful warm fire. French doors from the lounge open out onto a large balcony above the river where there is furniture to enjoy the countryside and distant sea views. Particular attention has been afforded to the property being suitable tfor the less mobile - the bedrooms, bathroom and shower room are all on ground floor along with the kitchen and dining hall, only the lounge is up a wide open staircase. The grounds around the mill are enclosed except for only a chain alongside the river boundary, so not suitable for young children. The quiet beach is only a 10 minute walk down river; seals and dolphins are often seen along the coast here as is the rare Chough crow. The hills behind the mill are a web of country lanes for cycling and footpaths through natural countryside. Snowdonia is 5mls inland through dramatic scenery of lakes and mountaines. Local attractions include Caernarfon castle (9 ml), Snowdon and the mountain railway at Llanberis (15 ml), pony trekking (5 ml).

The S Family (June, 2017): "Lovely cottage, plenty of character. Nice & cool during the heat wave!! Glasses of wine on the balcony - bliss... Feeling very well rested & sad to go home to the 'real world'. Never mind there's always next year!"
The B Family (May, 2017): "We have had the most amazing stay at this beautifully presented mill. The position is incredible and the neighbours are most welcoming. The surroundings leave a host of possibility for doing trips."
J-L (April 2017): "We have enjoyed very much our stay in North Wales and the place is very peasant to visit. But that we already knew. On top of that River Edge Mill is a nice place to stay for a short holiday. We have been very happy to stay there."
The H Family: "Our first visit to Melin y Cim. What a wonderful cottage. We particularly enjoyed the lounge with the warm cosy fire. Coffee on the balcony in the morning is a real treat, overlooking the river and field of cows. The cottage is a great place to return to after a long day out. We've swam in the sea, climbed mountains and visited castles and markets. It has been a lovely relaxing week. We will surely be returning next week."
The N Family: "Here we are again, our second visit to Melin Y Cwm. We didnt think it would be possible to be better than last time, but it has. Cottage was as lovely as we remembered. Had some great days out, Harlech beach was stunning and sunny! Beaumaris castle was a great find. Electric mountain and slate museum are good on rainy days. We've had a brilliant time here. Thank you."
Mr & Mrs S: "A beautiful marriage of stone and wood, Melin Y Cwm is a lovely riverside cottage. Warm & cosy- must return in the winter!"
The T Family: "We have had an extremly restful week, and The Old Mill is the best accomodation of it's kind we have ever had! Very warm and cosy whilst we had rain, sleet, snow, frost and sunshine.  Overall a great week and we would love to come again!"
Mr & Mrs G: "The Mill is a beautiful cottage and lovely to return to after many different walks with the dogs, Molly and Meg, they loved it!  The lounge is so cozy witht he fire, and the weather has been good enough to enjoy the balcony in the evening as the suns setting.  Thank you Mr and Mrs Hughes for your warm welcome"
