A truly amazing space and a superb host
The family (and the dog) had a fantastic time at the Old Mill House. The property is beautifully presented and superbly equipped and is short of nothing. Sally is a fantastic host and could not do enough for us providing advice on everything from travel through to the local brewery! Great location as a base for walking, Dalkeith Park is 15 minutes away and offers hours of walks, a great café, a restaurant and wonderful adventure playground for the kids. It is really easy to jump on the train from the local station straight into Edinburgh (and beyond) which saves the hassle of traffic and parking in the city.
The spa tub was well used, lovely and warm on the coldest night in October and the grounds around the property provide plenty of space for walking and playing with the dog. We made use of the mid-week cleaning and linen/towel change offered on request and we had the private chef Sally recommended, Nichola Pearce, cook for us in the house which was brilliant.
This place is beyond a home from home, you will not be disappointed, and we shall be returning.
First rate property with all the trimmings
The Old Millhouse was all we had hoped for and more besides. The owner and host Sally could not have been more helpful both before and during our stay, assisting us with arranging activities (including Laser Clay Shooting in the grounds), in house catering, food and wine deliveries and even transportation. The house itself is stunning, beautifully furnished and with all the facilities you could ask for. Of particular note is the massive hot tub, which we had the weather for. Thanks so much Sally, hope to see you at the Old Millhouse again one day.
Richard was an absolute pleasure to meet you and all the boys, so pleased you all had a great time, and look forward to welcoming you at the house again very soon. Best wishes
Family Trip to Edinburgh
We stayed at the Old Mill House for a family gathering for 10 days and enjoyed every minute of it. The property is gorgeous, and the house is amazing. Historical and updated at the same time. Very well decorated. Everything in the house that you would need is there.
We used the house as a base for travel around the area. Sally hooked us up with many great ideas and her driver Wilbur could not have been more accommodating. Seems like Sally knows everyone in the area and her contacts and knowledge made our trip even better than it would have been otherwise. We hosted a private dinner at the house using Sally's recommended Chef, Chef Nichola, and it was fantastic. If you go, please take advantage of Sally's help in planning your vacation in advance. It will be worth it. Sally was fantastic.
So many times one worries about whether the property meets expectations. No hesitation with this one. It exceeded our expectations. Everything was nice. Everything worked. There was a lot of room. And beautifully decorated.
We were a group of seven which was easily accommodated in the house.
We will make another visit to Scotland, and The Old Millhouse will be our base to travel from while we are there.

The best vacation week ever.
My family of ten enjoyed our stay to the fullest. From beginning to end we were pleased beyond measure. Before we arrived, Sally communicated with me about the property and about many possibilities for activities in Scotland. After our arrival she was always available to help but gave us plenty of privacy. The children especially loved the pool/spa. After a busy day of traveling, it was great to have a dip. The house met our expectations and more. Thank you, Sally.
Dear Sheila Its always makes everything worthwhile when we recieve such nice comments. It was really lovely to meet you and all your family. Thank you for being such super guests !
