About Sarah Watkins
My name is Ruth and I own Bryn Adda and Y Felin. I grew up in the area and have a deep love of the land and locality and the diversity it offers and a wish to help others to enjoy this. Sarah Watkins, part of my great team, will manage your booking from start to finish and she is only too happy to answer any questions you have about my houses or about the local area.
Why Sarah Watkins chose Abergynolwyn
Y Felin was originally a working watermill used for grinding corn. It is situated on farmland which belonged to my parents and when the farm was passed to me in 2009, I made the decision to restore this beautiful house using local materials and offer it as a holiday let to those seeking some peace. It’s location next to the river and in front of the mountain make it a wonderful retreat and my family and I often come here. The house is still surrounded by working farmland which is managed by our estate manager as we now live on a smaller farm near Monmouth.

Escape for the chaos.
Fabulous place to stay to escape from the chaos of life. Hope to be able to return in the future.
The place was beautiful, warm, and inviting. We only stayed 3 days and we wish we stayed longer. It was our favorite place to stay on our 2 week trip through Wales.
Secluded quiet setting
Beautiful country setting. The sound of rushing water all day and night. Clean spacious home with plenty of room for our large family to spread out. Kitchen had all we needed. Central spot for all our exploring.
A beautiful little sanctuary
The property is set in a stunning location. There is no wifi so you are free to take full advantage of the beautiful surroundings. The hosts left a lovely treat for our arrival. Overall, a wonderful destination for exploring mid-Wales and Snowdonia national park. Many thanks for having us!
Amazing location very remote and peaceful. Mountains surrounding the home, a safe enclosed garden. The accommodation was very comfortable and spacious.
