“5star plus”
Reviewed March 16, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Spent a long weekend in March with a group of friends, returning to this wonderful accommodation. The Mill has been treated to a luxury refurbishment. Very high quality finishes. Lots of granite and natural wood. Enormous kitchen/dining/ living space. En-suite bedrooms are spacious and light. Plenty of walks in the beautiful surrounding countryside. Great Italian restaurant in Selkirk if a meal out is required. Overall, couldnt fault anything!

“Wonderful time in a wonderful house”
Reviewed March 13, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Thanks Lulu for making our stay so warm and welcoming. Your house is amazing and it felt like we were staying in a 5 star hotel. The log fire made the house so cosy and the attention to detail in all the rooms was superb. It is a most relaxing place to stay. We were tempted to extend our weekend but unfortunately work called. We shall return.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed February 11, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

First impressions of The Mill - Wow. We arrived a little early and thought we were going to have to hang around for hours, but after a quick call to Lulu she insisted we were allowed in early. We even had a plate of her delicious chocolate brownies to greet us! The decor has such a wonderful balance of modern with cottage feel, the big windows looking out over the beautiful Scottish countryside. Lulu was kind enough to have the Christmas Decorations up (the biggest real Christmas tree I've had) so we could celebrate second Christmas with the family. The kitchen/ Lounge area is so spacious, more than enough space to relax and unwind in front of the fire. The upstairs mezzanine is such a good idea, the kids could spend their chill out time up there without having to fight over the TV. All of the bedrooms are beautiful, comfortable beds, all ensuite. And after a long, wet, windy day out hiking around the Scottish Borders what could be better than coming home to a sauna? We had a group of 10 family staying for New Years and we all fit comfortably without feeling crowded. The outdoor fire pit - despite the stormy week we had - we managed to get going for New Years Eve which was fantastic. Supermarkets are relatively close by, just a drive to Galashiels (the fridge is massive so stock up) We are looking to book again, there was so much to explore we didn't get to do everything we wanted to. I highly recommend hiking up Grey Mare's (should your fitness allow it), the views are incredible. Our hosts were so accommodating, Lulu and Johnny were at hand when we needed anything. Thank you again!

Thank you Lucy, what a fantastic review. We love decorating The Mill @ Christmas and I am so pleased you loved the tree, that was one of our last ones to cut in the woods. Need to plant more! You were amazing guests and left it beautifully. Hope to see you all again. Thank you again. Lulux

“What a magical place to spend Christmas”
Reviewed January 11, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My husband and I booked the Mill in order to gather round our family for Christmas and I can honestly say we could not have booked a better place. Lulu did a wonderful job of 'dressing' the Mill with lots of Christmassy and personal touches. The sense of space, tranquillity, comfort and amenity is wonderful even when all bedrooms are occupied - and having two dishwashers was a godsend!! The weather during our stay could have been better but that just meant that we were able to take full advantage of the mill - the fire, the sauna, the social kitchen - and with excellent wifi we all (old and young) managed to connect with the outside world without getting rained on!

Thanks Lulu and Johnny for helping to make lots of great memories.

“Luxurious and stylish”
Reviewed December 4, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The owners have put a lot of thought in to this. Extremely comfortable and quiet. Every facility you could ask for (sauna, steam shower, two dishwashers, even a place to sit round the fire outside). The setting is beautiful. The only downside is that there are no shops, pubs or restaurants within six miles, but that won't bother everyone (may even be a bonus!)

Thank you for your lovely review. Yes, sadly no facilities within in 6 miles but lots of beautiful walks and scenery to bed yourself down at the Mill with a Tesco's delivery and a well stocked bar! Hope to see you again.

“Best house I've ever stayed in.”
Reviewed November 13, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Went with a group of friends for a weekend. This is the most beautiful house! The weather was awful but it was no hardship to stay in. This house has been designed, built and decorated with taste, skill and attention to every detail. There is everything you need for a wonderful time. If you don't enjoy yourself, it's nothing to do with the owners because they really have thought of everything. We've already made plans to return next year. Thanks to lulu and Johnny. I can't say enough good things about your house.

“Outstanding property in a beautiful place”
Reviewed November 9, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A beautifully restored property in a lovely place. At night it was actually dark! No street lights so you could see millions of stars. The owners made you feel very welcome and their attention to detail was second to none. Loved spending a long weekend there with my family and going for long walks seeing all the colours of Autumn, I really couldn't have asked for more. I Have to say that Lulu's lemon drizzle cake, which was waiting for us on arrival, was gorgeous and went down a treat with a cuppa. It was just what we needed after walking miles with our dog! I'd definitely recommend this property to any one of my family and friends and we'll definitely be visiting again - I can't wait :-) The Mill has recently been awarded a five star rating and I must say it's very well deserved. The Mill is a credit to both Lulu and Johnny.
