The rooms were renovated outbuildings to an old farm,... More

First experience of Gretna & it was great! Stayed for two nights and the reason for our visit was to see family renewing vows. Chapel service was lovely and not to lengthy. The room we stayed in was number 23 which was easily tracked down due to good layout. It was clean, tidy and well maintained. All necessities were there... More

We got married here on 1st August 2014. Would recommend to anyone wishing something a wee bit different. There was only the two of us attending our wedding and the hotel supplied the witnesses free of charge. Our photographer (Carrie, from Captured by Carrie) was one witness and a staff member was the other. Everything was perfect (apart from the... More

I booked the Mill Forge for our wedding on August 7th. Everything was done via email and telephone so the venue wasn't seen before we arrived. I was not disappointed and with everything in one place there was no stress. Everything apart from the photographer was taken from the list of recommendations by The Mill and they were all excellent.... More

Just returned from a wedding at The Mill. It was a great stay...the wedding was perfect and staff were very friendly. Food was lovely. Grounds are gorgeous. My only complaint was the firm bed and thin walls in the bedrooms. Would recommend to friends and visit again.

We chose Mill Forge for our wedding as everything was on site, meaning the more elderly members of our party weren't being shuttled between venues, for the ceremony, reception, etc. Mill Forge exceeded any expectations we had. The staff were amazing, the recommended wedding services (local hair and beauty, photographer, minister, florist and piper) were all top notch and our... More
