Superb old mill house, beautifully restored

  • 4 of 5

Spent a few days last week with my family in this very well maintained and comfortable house. Lovely log fire and very comfortable beds. Well stocked kitchen with everything needed. Jane was extremely helpful and has been doing her best to get speedier wifi, not her fault! Lovely to sit at the table and watch all the different variety of birds, many which I haven't seen for some time. A very relaxing and enjoyable few days in beautiful countryside.

  • 3 of 5

we found the property excellent for our requirements with all areas catered for and not to far from town but would be no good unless you drive . a sign of the main road would be very useful to direct you to the property.

Beautiful property in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Dimpleknowe Mill was exactly as described and we enjoyed and made full use of all the amenities mentioned by previous reviewers. The very accessible ground floor layout worked very well for the 87 year old member of our family. We were able to visit several of the local villages and towns and explore local castles and abbeys. The late summer weather gave us some beautiful sunny days and sunsets and just a little rain. Thank you to owner Jane for her hospitality.

An Outstanding Tranquil Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The property is spacious and well equiped. It is particularly good for people with mobility issues as the ground floor bedroom has an accessible wet room en-suite. All of the bedrooms were very spacious and comfy and all en-suite. Jane made our stay very pleasant and made several helpful suggestions for local eats. The living area is large with every convenience laid on and we had a most enjoyable stay. For peace in the Scottish Borders this takes the prize thank you Jane (and my favourite tip was the Meringue Cafe at Jedburgh - bliss).

The Mill fitted our bill perfectly:-)

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely relaxed week in the Mill. It is bright, spacious, airy & peaceful. The property is exactly as advertised and Jane, the very pleasant owner, is on hand if needed with whatever assistance is required. For those looking for a destination to unwind-look no further.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We also loved Dimpleknowe. We were staying with my 86 year old mother and the ground floor bedroom was perfect for her. The mill has been beautifully restored. We appreciated the walled garden and patio. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped. We had no problem with the wi-fi. The surrounding area is lovely and we had some good walks in the evening - the roads are very quiet. The owner, Jane, was very helpful and had lots of suggestions for things to do. There was also a wealth of information on the surrounding area in the mill.

We would love to go back.
