The Old Mill House: Scottish Borders

This rustic, 17th-century mill has been turned into a luxury nook in the Scottish Borders. You can see the old but still operating waterwheel, contrasted against the roses and flowering lavender on the old miller's house next door. A wood-burning stove sits are the heart of the home, keeping things cosy warm in winter (your host will leave detailed instructions on how to light it so you’ll become an expert). The classy, aubergine-purple kitchen is well stocked with artisan crockery and everything you need to cook up a holiday meal. The mill’s original mezzanine floor has been converted into a plush bedroom with a roll-top bath. Heading outside, you’ll find a small, private woodland garden with table and chairs. Exploring the rest of the old mill site you might spot owls and hedgehogs in the forest, heron and otters by the millpond and acquaint yourself with the friendly resident sheep. Heading into the small village of Lauder, three miles away, you’ll find a handful of craft shops, coffee shops and a local deli too.

Home truths:
*The hob in the kitchen only has two rings
*One dog is welcome to stay too, just notify your host in advance
*The nearest shop is three miles away so having a car is recommended and there is plenty of parking space onsite
*A fast-flowing river runs through the Mill grounds, so children should be supervised
*The bedroom is up a set of stairs and has a low ceiling so may not be suitable for those with limited mobility
*You may be able to hear some road noise from the A697 when sitting outside
