This holiday property is surrounded by beautiful countryside, and is full of history and charm.

Great Cantal Granary, converted to holiday accommodation, was built in early Victorian times as the grain store for the adjoining Great Cantal Mill, which itself dates back to the 17th century. The mill, which last operated in the late 1940s, had a wooden overshot mill wheel on its east wall, powered by water from the River Aran. The water ran along a leat through the trees from the field beyond the mill and into a mill pond behind the mill, before rejoining the river near the ford.
The leat and the millpond were re-aligned in the 19th century to increase the water head and thus the potential power of the mill: the outline of both the original and later leats and millponds are still visible. The mill served as the ’court mill’ for the parish: local farmers brought their grain to Great Cantal, where it was stored in the Granary until it was milled, with the miller retaining some of the flour as payment for the milling.
Most of the mill machinery had been removed by the 1980s but one of the bedstones, made of French burr stone, dating from about 1830 and weighing over a ton, was still in place when the present owners, already resident in the old farmhouse opposite, acquired the Mill and Granary a few years ago. This bedstone was carefully removed and is now on display at Talgarth Mill, which is about 30 miles away, between Hay on Wye and Brecon. Since 1989, the Granary, Mill and Farmhouse have been in separate ownership to the farm, which is now owned and managed by a young family who live in a farmhouse up the lane.
