    Great Cantal Granary, converted to detached 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 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. A network of tracks crosses the farm, giving easy access to Maelienydd and Little Hill Commons. Overlooking the farm to the north is Beacon Hill Common, 5000 acres of open moorland across which runs Glyndwr’s Way, a long distance footpath running from Knighton to Machynlleth. All three commons are access land on which there is the right to roam.
    The River Aran, which rises on Beacon Hill and flows down through Great Cantal to join the River Ithon near Penybont, and thence the Wye a little north of Builth Wells, is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a European Special Area of Conservation, where a variety of wildlife can be found. The owner has fishing rights for 3½ miles on the River Ithon which is located a 25-minute drive away (£10pw, licence required). Maelienydd, itself a SSSI, is a breeding ground for redshank and curlew and Beacon Hill still hosts the rare ring ouzel, as well as red grouse. One of Radnorshire Wildlife Trust’s nature reserves, Tylcau Hill, lies about 2 miles from the Granary and is open to visitors all year round. The spa town of Llandrindod Wells is 15 miles. Shop 8 miles, pub and restaurant 4½ miles.

    Lovely accommodation in a beautiful setting, a perfect get away. The accommodation had everything we needed. A bit chill due to a cold snap but this didn't bother us. There was no issue with hot water but not enough for a bath or long shower. Lovely host ...the homemade jam and bottle of Welsh beer was a nice touch. Shops are a few miles away, lots of good walks locally and further a field. Would happily stay again.
