2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
Dumfries, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland
Converted water mill, the original beams are back in situ and all the stone walls are original. Ideal for small groups or families looking for a self catering holiday in Dumfries & Galloway Scotland.
Allanton Mill is a high quality self catering holiday cottage in a converted former water mill dating back to 1739 near Auldgirth, Dumfries, which originally housed the grain drying ovens, mill stones and mechanics for the milling of local crops.
Set in a stunning rural location with great country pursuits on the doorstep, Allanton Mill is perfect for both small groups or families looking for a countryside break, with Dumfries and Thornhill just a short drive away. Close to the former home of famous Poet Robert Burns, which is now a popular museum and visitor attraction.
