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!!
