Dod Mill is offering a unique rural bolthole in the north Scottish Borders. Old Mill has been carefully designed with modern, rustic styling and artisan touches to complement Dod Mill's rural & historic setting. Near Edinburgh.
Old Mill is one of several beautiful stone buildings at Dod Mill. It started life in the 1700s as a grain watermill. Old Mill sits in a rural site with rivers with trout and salmon, herons, ducks, otters (if you're lucky!), a mill pond, sheep in the fields, woodland and wild flowers.
Old Mill is perfect for a couple seeking a romantic retreat or a bolthole from which to explore the Scottish Borders and Edinburgh. You'll find a large open-plan space with well-equipped kitchen, a large oak-topped dining table, and a beautiful living space by the woodburning stove. The interior styling is a contemporary take on a rural, historic building with details reflecting an industrial heritage. You'll find a Farrow & Ball colour palette, vintage Moroccan rug, handmade shutters, artisan crockery, and quirky touches like a vintage French balloon mould and antique chappati rolling pins.
