Just off the M/way North of Gretna Green, easy to find and a good choice for a night-stop. Friendly staff, clean rooms with good facilities. Decent restaurant & bar. Excellent breakfast included in the price.

The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were really good and plenty of variety. The day of the wedding... More

I always say praise where praise is due and The Mill Forge is somewhere that deserves praise. We booked the exclusive package for our wedding on 25th April some time ago and Graham and his staff have been absolutely brilliant from booking it to check out today.
