With river views to enjoy from almost every room, an excellent location on the banks of the River Tweed just 2 miles from Peebles, 5 bedrooms and a garden where you can sit out and relax next to the river, the Mill House is a truly impressive large holiday house.  Dating back to 1802, this converted watermill successfully combines character with modern comforts.  Free Wifi access available.

Family-friendly, the garden is fenced and there is a large playing field.  Pets are welcome too (up to 2 well behaved dogs).

Beautiful Converted Watermill with River Views

Inside the roomy kitchen diner with its seating for 10 is very much the heart of the home and features French doors that lead out to the patio where you can sit out and look out over the river.  The lounge with its big picture windows where you can look out to the river is a real treat too.

This is a tranquil, unspoilt location where you can enjoy relaxing in the garden and watching the river go by.  Local wildlife you might be lucky enough to see include herons, ducks, kingfishers and otters.
