We booked this for a family/friends 'houseparty' and it could not have been more perfect. Easy to reach by road but felt in the middle of nowhere, very welcoming host (and quick to answer the odd texted question). The rooms were comfortable, the kitchen well stocked and everything was squeaky clean. It had the feel of a place where the owners had stayed to see what it was like as a visitor!
An amazing building in an amazing location - I recommend it holehearteldy
Part of a party of 11 people stayed in this lovely Windmill for 3 nights. Extremely well equipped accommodation, as the Sunday lunch cook of the group I was impressed! All bedooms are characterful, the dining room is spacious and comfortable chairs. The loung area has enough seating for 12 ( bit of a tight fit on the sofas, but cosyand easy to chat in)
There are ensuites and 2 additional bedrooms with 1 family bathroom and a downstairs loo. At the very top of the Mill is a snug with books and games,
There is an outside patio area with gas BBQ and grassed area,
We ordered a takeaway on the first night, I recommend the Dil ( seperate review) we had a booked table at the Stuffed Tomato on the Saturday night ( seperate review) and a big family roast for Sunday Dinner,
Its about a 40 min walk into Usk ( a pretty little village with Church) and a 15 mile journey to Abergaveney ( a nice little town with boutique shops)
All in all a cracking weekend!
To stay in a windmill has been a long ambition, Llancayo is extremely well equipped and decorated; each room had a different colour scheme. We all felt at home there second we walked in the door. Easy access with the little town of Usk within walking distance with plenty of places to eat or drink. Our favourite was 49 with a tea rooms and preloved clothing on the first floor most of the ladies found something to buy. Further afield Tintern Abbey and the walk up to Devils Pulpit well worth the effort for the views. We will be back
We booked the windmill for my mum’s 60th birthday and there was 8 of us plus a one year old. It was just wonderful; my mum said it felt like we’d won the lottery! We wanted somewhere with a nice big table for eating at as a family and this one didn’t disappoint. We played games at it and then sat in the lounge where there were seats for everyone. I loved that the sofas were curved against the curve of the windmill, and that the focus was on each other. Beds were comfy and clean. The underfloor heating was fab too. Kitchen was great. We got a takeaway from Usk one night (though we had to pick it up) and (some of us walked) into Usk to go and see the castle and the local shops. We would all go back!
I stayed with some friends at the windmill and we all had a wonderful stay. The Windmill itself is beautifully situated close to Usk and is on a working Farm in the beautiful Welsh countryside. There is plenty of outside space which is private to visitors to the Windmill and so perfect for family and friends who want to spend time outside relaxing or playing games. The interior of the Windmill is absolutely beautiful filled with all mod cons but maintaining a traditional look . All rooms are designed to a very high standard and are very very comfortable . I find it hard to find anything to fault this location but the only thing which would make it more perfect would be the addition of a hot tub ! I would highly recommend this property!
This was selected for a special birthday celebration with a group of friends and proved to be an excellent property choice in a great setting.
It was of course helped as we were blessed with good weather but never the less it proved ideal for our party with ages ranging from 18 months to much older!!
