“Perfect house for family holiday!!”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We booked the Mill House to stay in for a family wedding in Peebles. Even though it said on the website the house catered for 10 people we were unsure what kind of house to expect. One by one we arrived at the house to be more than pleasantly surprised to see the house we had just rented.
There is nothing that this house does not have in the kitchen. From pots to pans, to baking facilities, and more than enough utensils to facilitate cooking for a large group of people. Even the booklet provided in the house gives you all the information you will need to know. The location of the house is perfect just a short spin out of the village. If we were going back to Peebles this is definitely the house we would come back to. The people in the village were so friendly to us visitors and coming from Donegal in Ireland it was like home from home. The only bit of criticism I would have about the house is that it can be slightly cold during the night so might be worth paying extra for heating... Highly recommend this house as a perfect family holiday.

“A great party weekend with family and partners”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We had a great time at the Mill House. It's a beautiful spot and a lovely house on the river just outside Peebles. A great big kitchen to cook and enjoy meals together plus ample room so we didn't feel on top of each other. The dogs enjoyed careering about in the gardens.

We took advantage of the location by the girls having a day at Stobo Castle spa while the boys went mountain biking at Glentress.

We also had a great dinner out in Peebles at the Sunflower restaurant.

Would thoroughly recommend this house to groups of friends or family.

“New Year holiday.”
Reviewed 8 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Once again we had a wonderful time in a great holiday house actually it feels more like a home. Ages 3 years to 70 years all had a great time. 12 for New Year dinner no problem in that great kitchen. Weather not great but still plenty of places to go and things to do,no bored children with that great toy room.

“Tranquil surrounds with great family accommodation.”
Reviewed 4 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Only negative criticisms are that some rooms could do with a little more TLC and updating -living room and was rather dusty and needed hoovering when we arrived, wallpaper throughout landings and stairs could do with updating and very very squeaky bunk beds! All in all though still a beautiful place to stay and very we'll equipped for families and children

“A Brilliant weekend with friends & family”
Reviewed 11 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We have stayed at the Millhouse a number of times in both summer & winter and with & without kids in tow. The Millhouse fits the bill perfectly for what ever type of break you are looking for. We have been mountain biking at Glentress, shopping in Edinburgh, fishing with the kids at Kailzie Gardens (caught 9 trout) & sightseeing locally & further a field.
At the end of each all couldn’t wait to get back to the house to relax. We spent most of our time in the kitchen or sat outside. We will be back again.

“Fabulous and picturesque”
Reviewed 19 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Arrived for a family birthday weekend, first sight of the house and Location was very pleased...once inside had a good walk round was not dissapointed, the owners have this place so well equipped , and beautifully decorated, clean and tidy and basically everything you need, for anyone with a young family the playroom is fantastic plenty of toys and games etc they would be well entertained.
We stayed Friday to Monday , relaxed and enjoyed the location, some great walks and Peebles so near as well , Lovely Town to visit.
Would definitely book here again the eight of us had a great time and hope to return soon..
