There is ample private parking directly in front of The Mill.
A private outside space is situated directly outside the main living area. It provides a seating area, a barbecue for al fresco dining and a Chiminea. Above is a newly planted Willow arch with a wooden see-saw so parents can sit and watch their children play, with wonderful views looking across the valley. There are plenty of owls and bats and wildlife to be seen. Maps are available on request.
Guests are welcome to walk around the wider estate which extends to over a hundred acres. You can roam around the fields and woods, remembering to close gates.
At the beautiful Mill Pond is a recently built hut in the beautiful oak wood for a night or more out. You can have a bonfire for toasting marshmallows on the fire pit. The wood is a wonderful canopy of trees and near the gate, two swings hang from the oak tree to enjoy the tranquillity of the stunning views across and up the Yarrow Valley.
The Mill Pond can get boggy in certain conditions so, for the safety of young children, please ensure they are accompanied by a responsible person in this area. Contact us if you have any concerns.
For sporty types, an astro turf tennis court is available. There is no need to book, it’s available anytime through the day (but please note there are no floodlights). There is a seating area to watch the sport or just look across to the hills and take in the spectacular views up and down the Yarrow Valley. Rackets & Balls can be provided.
Two well-behaved dogs are welcome at The Mill (additional fee applies of £30 per dog). Owners are required to keep dogs in the boot room when wet. This has adjustable underfloor heating and is adjacent to the sitting room. We do allow well behaved dogs into the sitting room but not on the sofas and chairs or beyond in the bedrooms.
The Mill is not overlooked and offers a high level of privacy for holidaying guests. The main farmhouse is nearby but sits quite separate and we are on hand to help with any requests or questions.
