Property description

Surely a unique opportunity to purchase a Grade II Listed 3 Bedroomed Cottage and Former Water Mill of immense character (with No Chain) offering huge potential for the imaginative and creatives minds out there. Why not realise its historical significance and make it something special!

If you’ve ever taken the picturesque tourist trail between Porthmadog and Blaenau Festiniog, you will have passed this unique property without giving it a second thought. Offered with the advantage of No Chain is this rather special Residence that is simply far from your ordinary dwelling in so many countless ways. Thought to date back to the late 18th century, this former Water Mill used for grinding flour (water powered), 3 Bedroomed Cottage and former Kiln House (all Grade II Listed) is located in an unmistakable roadside position within the stunning Snowdonia National Park. Mill cottage has been run as a successful holiday let business (Section 106 occupancy restriction applies) and is full of rustic charm and character alongside a tiered landscaped garden with pond and patio. Mill Cottage is now undergoing some remedial works and general improvements. Due to its substantial size and dimensions, it should be noted that the former mill offers huge potential for development (subject to all usual planning consents and approvals), its workshop and 3 floors providing space aplenty for the free thinking entrepreneur to come up with a host of idea’s with the original mill workings still intact, offering an undoubtedly special project for the adventurous! With partial electric Economy 7 storage heating, the accommodation briefly comprises: Dining Room, Kitchen, Lounge, Landing, 2 Bedrooms, Bathroom and Shower Room to first floor with a further Bedroom, Study/Dressing room and Attic Room on the second floor.

Mill Cottage resides within Tan Y Bwlch on the main A487 in the beautiful Vale of Ffestiniog, right in the heart of Snowdonia and lying some 3 miles west of the village of Penrhyndeudraeth and 6½ miles from Porthmadog. The property is ideally positioned for Porthmadog, Blaenau Ffestiniog and Dolgellau, the entire Snowdonia National Park and striking coastline.
