The Mill House

Rental Home -
5 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Peebles, Scottish Borders, Scotland
Built in 1802, The Mill House enjoys a beautiful and picturesque riverside setting on the banks of the River Tweed. The house is converted from a former watermill and has great character and charm. It has three floors overlooking the river and garden.

A large, family dining kitchen (seats 10) forms the heart of the house with French doors overlooking the river.

If you just want to relax in the sun, you can sit on the luxury garden furniture in the upper garden and enjoy a glass of wine. There is an abundance of wild life including herons, kingfishers and ospreys.

Children can run free in the large informal garden (fenced in), within full view of the patio and upper garden. Colourful Kailzie Gardens are a short walk away, with its sparkling burn and wildfowl pond, and can provide a tranquil and relaxing stroll or picnic.

About the neighborhood
The Peebles area
'Peebles for Pleasure' is what the locals say and it's easy to see why! Peebles offers plenty of ways to enjoy the great outdoors with many leisure activities. Golf, fishing, mountain biking and walking are popular pursuits, with the Forests of Tweeddale and the challenging Southern Upland Way easily accessible. For mountainbikers of all levels, Glentress Forest offers the first courses in Scotland designed by enthusiasts using a colour-graded scheme like ski runs.

Peebles' spacious High Street offers interesting boutiques and welcoming tearooms for a spot of shopping, then round off the day with a visit to Peebles Eastgate Theatre; opened in 2004 with a varied year-round selection of theatre, music and art exhibitions.
