If you’ve always wanted to stay in a treehouse or a cabin, but you also want gorgeous interiors, a decent shower and flushing toilet, then the Stilt House is for you. This is a rural hideaway with contemporary design inside and out. Expect loads of light, stylish interiors, pretty views from every window, dreamy bed linen, a cosy woodburner and the relaxing sounds of the river flowing by.
The Stilt House is a unique treehouse cabin, renovated in 2020. Insulation, double-glazing, larch cladding, a tin roof and a wonderful Esse Bakeheart woodburning stove for heating and cooking.
ONE LIVING-KITCHEN-SLEEPING SPACE
Stilt House is a studio-style treehouse, with one open living-sleeping-kitchen space. It's roomy for a single or a couple, and there is a sofa-bed for any extra guests. The focal point of the room is the woodburning stove – it can keep Stilt House very cosy, even when temperatures drop low. The seating area has windows which perfectly frame the view out to the mill pond. There is nothing more relaxing than watching wild ducks pootling about from the comfort of your cabin.
The kitchen is compact but has everything you will need. Stilt House has a small fridge, all cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery etc. The Esse Bakeheart woodburning stove will provide heat, a hob and an oven. We also provide a single electric hob as a back up, and you can cook campfire-style outside at the firepit.
The built-in kingsize bed comes with gorgeous, crisp white linen and a super comfy mattress. We can also provide bedding for the small sofa bed for an additional guest (or two).
Stilt House has its own WC and shower room, just 30m away. No need to share facilities. We provide gorgeous towels, shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Please note that only eco-products may be used in the Stilt House, no chemicals.
Stilt House sits right between the Boondreigh River and Dod Mill's historic pond. Outdoor seating is provided, as well as a fire pit for the full campfire experience.
You are welcome to explore the wider Dod Mill grounds. That includes a small orchard, sheep you can feed, the mill pond, mill lade immediately around the Stilt House. Cross the bridge to the other side of the Boondreigh for riverside walks and access to the Lammermuir Hills.
