About the property

House in Rudry, Nr. Cardiff, Wales - Set In 3 Acres Of Landscaped Gardens Its A Very Peaceful Location With Many Country Walks Available

The Mill has electrically operated driveway gates, a laurel lined driveway leads to the front of the property providing ample car parking. It seems to have more a modest two storey building at the front whilst the accommodation is in fact arranged over four floors as evidenced by the considerably more substantial rear elevation. Professionally interior designed throughout, the watermill offers traditional character with a luxurious contemporary twist. From the central hall, the accommodation at ground level includes a large sitting room which enjoys the striking feature of the mill machinery. Further living accommodation is found on the ground floor with a spacious family dining room. The kitchen and breakfast room is extensively fitted and arranged sociably around a central island. There is lots of space for eating and entertaining. Outside, the leisure wing has a heated swimming pool, gym and changing room. Whilst a large hot tub is available it enables the visitor to see the view.

Great property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a long weekend at the Old Watermill, bringing all our immediate family back to the area for a family get-together. The property was ideal - lots of room for everyone, a pool to keep the children happy and space outside for children and dog to run around. There was plenty of crockery/glasses etc (which is sometimes sadly lacking in holiday properties) and Alex was extremely welcoming and helpful on arrival.

Amazing time away

  • 5 of 5

We were very excited about staying at the Former Stone Watermill from reading the reviews and looking at the pictures. We were not disappointed!! The house and facilities were fantastic. Our children loved spending time in the pool and we loved spending time in the Hot Tub!! The extra special treat was having a Samba football goal on the grass by the house. We spent hours playing! The house was amazing with plenty of room for all of us! The kids loved watching DVDs in the evening and we loved chatting in the kitchen or being in the Hot Tub. The weather was also perfect so we spent lots of time on the balcony just relaxing. Everything you needed was in the house. We were sorry to be leaving but we certainly will be back! Thank you to Alex and Chris for making this break very special!

A luxury house in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful few days at the Old Watermill. I was nervous about booking direct with the owner, but Alex and Chris were extremely understanding and helpful. The house was beautiful, spacious, warm and really well equipped. The only thing we couldn't find was anything to make proper coffee in - there were several tea pots so I guess Alex and Chris must prefer tea! The hot tub and pool were the height of luxury, and were clean and well kept. We would love to return.

Beautiful house with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Everyone enjoyed there stay here, it's in a good location with a great pub at the end of the road, perfect for cold winters nights in the hot tub or in front of the fire, or summers days out on the terrace and in the swimming pool, highly recommended

absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at the watermill and it is still just as amazing, the peace and quiet is just what we were looking. The house has everything you could possibly need, luxury kitchen, big comfy sofas, huge master bedroom with stunning views over the fields and woods. The swimming pool and hot tub was constantly being used especially after the long walks through the woods at the end of the road. The huge garden is enclosed which is great for our nosey dogs, as there is no way to escape. We will definitely be returning again as it is such a perfect holiday home.

Special interest holidays:

Lisvane village centre offers a parade of shops, church and public house whilst the well regarded Maenllwyd pub restaurant is very nearby.

The owner of the property is very knowledgeable of sporting events in the area and would be happy to discuss further on request.


The property is based between Bristol and Cardiff airport. They are approx 20 miles each way.


The village of Rudry is a mile away, Rudry castle and many scenic walks are nearby which information can be made available The area also has an envious mountain biking fraternity due to the many scenic parks nearby.

The city of Cardiff is only 5 miles away.

Further Details:

The Maenllydd pub and restaurant has many visitors both far and wide so a visit is recommended. It is only a five minute walk from the property.
