I booked the Mill Forge for our 25th wedding anniversary vow renewal and our 31 guests. It was all booked over the telephone and internet, so I was a bit nervous on how things would be on the big day, well I should never have worried right from checking In on the day before everything was perfect. The venue was... More

This was our first visit to the Mill Forge, having scoured venues for our special day, we chose wisely. The venue was faultless in every aspect, from the green blades of grass, to every stone put together, giving a very genuine and authentic experience for anyone's wedding. With wonderful touches, to melt our hearts further, from our hosts, the small... More

I don't know if I can express in words how perfect our day was. We arrived the evening before. The bridal suite was wonderful. Spacious, comfortable and the whirlpool bath was amazing. Relaxed in the night before with bubbly and the morning after the wedding when your feet hurt! We ate in the bar the night before. It was nice... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion. I am sorry to read that your recent stay did not meet your expectations. The issue with your meal is especially odd as many other reviewers compliment our food offering. I have consulted with the waiting and kitchen staff and they were both unaware of your complaint.

We were married at the Mill Forge Thursday 28th May 2015. From our arrival on the Wednesday with our guests (38 of us in total - age range from 19 months to 75 years!) everything was perfectly organized. All the rooms were lovely - especially our Bridal Suite! Champagne and Chocolates and another little surprise awaited us on arrival -... More

We renewed our marriage vows and celebrated my husbands 70th birthday on Friday 29th May. From the moment we arrived we were looked after brilliantly by the staff and this continued right through our ceremony and reception. We cannot speak too highly of their attention to detail and friendliness. The accommodation was lovely ( bridal suite room 29 ) and... More

We were married at the Mill Forge on Tuesday 2nd June and it was unbelievable. We had never actually visited the place before but when we arrived we were stunned. Extremely clean and beautiful surroundings, easily accessible from the motorway and every single member of staff were more than happy to help to make the stay as enjoyable as possible.... More

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.

My son and his wife got married here last month and it was just perfect in every way. We went as a family of 16 and stayed for 2 nights. Really could not fault it in any way.
