Full description

The mill was originally restored and converted to a dwelling in 1984 and the present owners have carried out further works to enhance the residential quality of the property. It not only offers a superb principal house, which has a letting flat underneath but also a detached cottage, ideal for extended members of the family or for holiday letting purposes. The original water mill has now been replaced with a moldered counterpart and this generates electricity for the property. The situation is second to none, offering complete privacy and tranquillity, set in wonderful gardens which have been thoughtfully and tastefully landscaped to provide a wonderful setting for this property. Yet it is only 3 miles from the market town of Brecon which offers a wide range of amenities and facilities including shopping, commercial and recreational and educational establishments.

Millbrook Mill beat is an exceptional piece of water, with some excellent holding pool interspersed with some faster runs of water which makes this varied and exciting fishery which has produced excellent catches of both salmon and wild brown trout. Salmon in excess of 20lbs have been taken from this beat on numerous occasions and trout between 2lbs and 3lbs are not uncommon. Another attribute of the fishery is the fact that the opposite bank is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to fish from and therefore Millbrook Mill has virtually exclusive use of the river by virtue of the difficult terrain on the opposite bank.

Fishing Rights 
A plan is included with these sales particulars which shows the extent of the property and also the fishing rights edged in a red line. This is taken from the Land Registry and is believed to be correct. Although no formal records have been kept, the owners have numerous photographs showing catches that have been made by their many friends and colleagues who have come to enjoy this water. The water has never been let on a commercial basis and is used by family and friends only. On occasions specimen fish are taken but generally the policy has been for catch and release. The water offers varied conditions and is ideal for both fly or spinning methods. The former is preferred and the only method used for brown trout.
