We could write a long glowing report about the Mill as we got married here at 4pm on 17th Aug 2016, with only 9 of us in our party. (On the same day there was 2 other weddings,making about 80 of us in total) But this did not affect our day at all, in fact it made it better because... More

My husband and I were married here on 4th August this year (2:30pm). Where do I start?! We travelled to Gretna to view the The Mill before booking and instantly fell in love with its lovely little chapel and beautiful gardens, we also loved the fact that the whole complex was private and out of the busy town centre.

Myself and my new husband were married here on Sunday. We travelled up on the Saturday along with 12 members of our family.

Stayed for two nights to attend a wedding. Room basic but clean and well presented. Staff were great, helpful and friendly. Wedding service in the chapel was really enjoyable, the bride being piped in was very impressive. Wedding reception served up great food in a friendly and efficient manner. Would I recommend this place for a Gretna wedding ? defiantly... More

This was a fairy-tale wedding location. The bridal suite was awesome with four poster bed, bubbly and chocolates waiting for us. Jamie, our wedding coordinator, thought of every detail to make the day go really smoothly. Absolutely perfect venue.

The whole event was absolutely wonderful with the key highlight, after the wedding of course, the way the staff made us all feel welcome and their organisation of the big day. We stayed 2 nights in a double room towards the rear of the hotel overlooking fields. The room was a little on the small side but no less comfortable... More

We chose the Mill for our wedding as we viewed the venue on a very wet and windy day last year and even though most sensible people were indoors keeping warm and dry, the staff opened everything up for us to view and couldn't have been more helpful.
