The Old Mill House is absolutely stunning. First class accommodations and Sally was superb host!!
Everything was perfect, the rooms beautifully decorated and are equipped with all the comforts for your stay. The house is stunning and the grounds are perfectly manicured with many places to relax and take in nature. We will definitely stay here again and I highly recommend it to anyone considering the Old Mill House.
What an amazing home and fantastic host
I do not have words to accurately describe what a beautiful home and gracious and friendly host Sally is. Our time in this beautiful home was just about as perfect as it could be.
The home is super spacious with 5 large bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms. The kitchen is fantastic for preparing large meals, we ate there almost every night with more than 8 people at each dinner, and the Orangery is very cosy. The weather was perfect while we were there and so we spent hours at the outdoor dining table, sitting around the fire late at night and enjoying the swim spa. My children spent hours in the garden with the chickens and just generally running around the high, safe and quite grounds, and we even hired a local fisherman to help the kids fish for a couple of hours.
Sally was amazing. So friendly, so helpful. Available when we needed her but left us alone at other times. We absolutely loved you Sally.
Book this home, you will have an experience of a lifetime. Wonderful
Erika, it was a real pleasure to meet you and all your family, and so pleased the Old Millhouse ticked all your boxes. Thank you very much for leaving such a lovely review and we look forward to welcoming you again. Best regards Sally
Absolutely beautiful home
Our family of 9 adults (3 generations) could not have asked for a more perfect stay in Scotland. The Old Millhouse is beautifully appointed with all the comforts of home. We were greeted by the owners, Sally and Terry who could not have been more welcoming and gracious. A delicious meal was even waiting for us in the fridg when we arrived. This beautiful country home provided a relaxing retreat after a long day of sightseeing. We thoroughly enjoyed the chickens who live on the property and the eggs they provided. The property offers over 3 acres of privacy yet it is only a 15 minute walk into the town of Dalkeith or to the beautiful Dalkeith County Park. Edinburgh is a short 20 min taxi drive away or you can do as the locals and take the bus. Sally was so helpful with assisting us in making transportation arrangements, providing dining and online grocery recommendations. We highly recommend staying at The Old Millhouse, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Sally and Terry for a wonderful stay in your home. Cindy, Dan, and family (California, US)
Dear Cindy and Family a real pleasure to meet you and all the family. Terry and I so happy you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you all again in the very near future. Kind regards Terry and Sally
Fantastic Property in Dalkeith
My family of 10 had a fabulous time staying in the house provided by Sally and Terry. Sally gave us all of the information we needed for a great stay in Dalkeith, a town outside of Edinburgh. We made good use of public transport the entire 8 days we were there. The house is gorgeous inside and out. This mill was restored to a beautiful house with all of the necessary accommodations for a large group. Of our many HomeAways (now 10 in all), this property was the most special. Thank you both for a great trip! Cheers!
So pleased you enjoyed your stay, hope to welcome you back on your next visit to scot land
Very special Scottish estate
A fabulous house, a gorgeous setting and incredibly welcoming hosts made this a trip of a life time for my wife and me, our four adult sons and their four girlfriends. May thanks to Sally and Terry for making an idyllic retreat even more heavenly. Fabulous.
I would have put six stars
The house was very clean and functional. Bathroom and bedroom was more than ok, the garden was lovely. Very convenient for food and activities. close to the airport.
