An Excellent Base to Explore the Scottish Borders

  • 5 of 5

Our main reason for booking Dimpleknowe Mill was due to this property having a ground floor bedroom and bathroom with excellent facilities for a disabled guest. The bathroom includes a wet room fully equipped for disabled use large enough for a wheelchair. The whole of the downstairs accommodation is wheelchair friendly.

We also required separate accommodation for our son and his family. This property has on the upper floor two bedrooms each with bathroom facilities. There is also a spacious lounge offering extra privacy. This provided them with a self-contained unit.

The location, very close to Hawick, is perfect for visiting the many Border County properties and various attractions. The property itself is in a very quiet location and has an attractive secluded garden.

We enjoyed watching the huge variety of birdlife which was in full view of the front lounge window

The owner, Jane, is very helpful and provides valuable local knowledge of places to visit within the area which is a bonus.

Stellar Property

  • 5 of 5

This property is wonderful! The pictures do not do it justice...great layout, very clean and well maintained and gorgeous location. Ten minute drive to Hawick(grocery stores, gas station, nice museum) and easy drive to Abbeys and other Borders sites. Jane and Norman were delightful hosts. We especially enjoyed walks down the lanes, bird watching(loved the pheasants) and the 11 hole golf course. Recommend highly and hope to return one day.

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.

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).
