Godremamog Mill is situated in an idyllic wooded valley setting
overlooking the Cych salmon river (a tributary of the famous Teifi river) with the gardens spanning the Pembrokeshire/ Carmarthenshire border. Close to the village of Capel Iwan, the local shopping towns of Newcastle Emlyn (about 3.5 miles) and Cardigan (about 14 miles) are within easy reach. The larger shopping town of Carmarthen with the A48 M4 link road is about 17 miles providing quick access to the cities of Swansea (about 44 miles) and Cardiff (about 84 miles), the Severn Bridge and beyond. The famous coastline and beaches of the Cardigan
Bay Coast and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park (along with its rugged Preseli Mountains) are also within easy reach.


Godremamog dates back to 1885 and was a working woollen factory for 50 years making flannel which would have been used for work men's shirts (e.g. for colliers and steel workers) and for army uniforms. Its valley is recorded in the Mabinogion, a medieval Welsh saga dating back 1000 years which records magical events by the Cych river.

The mill was originally converted in c. 1971 but has been
sympathetically refurbished and improved over the years to the
award winning holiday retreat that it is today. The mill is a substantial property (about 4403 sq ft) set over 4 floors. Generous owners' accommodation lies on the second and third floors, the latter being an attic conversion. There are 4 further spacious, fully centrally heated, self-contained apartments, each sleeping 4 people on the ground and first floors. Each has been rated 4 Star by Visit Wales (the Welsh Tourist Board). The mill has won numerous awards over the years including the
Gold Award at the Carmarthenshire Tourism Awards 2015/16 for Self Catering Accommodation of the Year. The property is set in approximately 6 acres (stms - subject to measured survey) and includes delightful landscaped gardens spanning the Cych river, a riverside meadow and magical woodland.

The mill enjoys an idyllic position and no other property can be seen from it.

Accommodation Entrance Level (First Floor)
A welcoming entrance porch is set on a bridge spanning the mill
stream. This leads through to a reception hall with doors off to the apartments called Spinners (on the left) and Carders Corner (on the right). Both have comfortable accommodation including a sitting dining room, 2 bedrooms, fitted kitchen and a bathroom. They also enjoy French doors that open out onto their own garden seating areas from the twin bedrooms in Spinners and Carders Corner.

Garden Level (Ground Floor)
Stairs lead down from the reception hall to the garden level (ground floor) where 2 further apartments are situated, Bobbin Box and the Wheel House. These again offer sitting dining rooms, fitted kitchens, 2 bedrooms and bathroom suites. They also enjoy French doors that open out onto the gardens and their own seating areas.

Second Floor
Stairs rise from the reception hall to the second floor owner's
accommodation. A large sitting dining room lies at the front of the mill with a wood burning stove providing a warm focal point. Adjacent is a useful storage room and separate office. These rooms could easily be converted to make a 3rd and 4th bedroom. A door leads off the dining area to a quality kitchen breakfast room with separate utility room. Next to the kitchen at the rear of the mill is another comfortable sitting room with a wood burning stove providing a warm centrepiece. Double doors open off to the landing area and staircase. The second floor is completed by a steam/ shower room with WC.

Third Floor
Stairs continue to the third floor and the converted loft accommodation that includes 2 substantial bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and exposed A-frames. These share the use of a generous and sumptuous bathroom suite with a corner bath and separate shower.

Godremamog Mill is set in idyllic and magical grounds of approximately 6 acres (stms). It is framed by landscaped and
terraced gardens (including vegetable garden) with lawned areas and is bordered on one side by mature woodland and on the other by the relaxing gardens around the enchanting Cych river. To the west of the mill is an idyllic riverside meadow with a riverside walk and rustic seating areas. Trails have been created
in part of the woods with rustic seating areas. Numerous other seating areas have been created around the grounds and river to enjoy the peaceful setting.

A superb outside recreational area that lies alongside the water wheel and overlooks the river includes a stone BBQ, a hot tub,
a swim4spa (where you swim against a current) a delightful BBQ hut, a butterfly garden, steps into the river to paddle and pergolas to relax under. Further outbuildings include 2 cosy summer houses, outside laundry room for holiday guests, greenhouse and a useful garage/ workshop. There is ample off-road private parking for 10+ cars with a large car park at the top of the drive and also a disabled car park next to the mill which doubles as a turning circle.
