Description



Absolutely stunning 5 bedroom steading conversion, ideal for family gatherings and well equipped for walkers, anglers, cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts. The Mill House stands on a hill just outside the village of Earlston (shops, pubs), near Melrose, some thirty miles south of Edinburgh in the heart of the Scottish borders, with wonderful views across the surrounding countryside to the legendary Eildon Hills. The Scottish Borders is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts and those seeking a rural retreat. Situated with access to many of the famous walks of the area, The Mill House is perfect for exploring the area. The market towns of Melrose, Jedburgh, Kelso, Lauder and Peebles--with their lovely shops and abbeys-- are all within 15 miles, and it is a 30 mile drive to the coast and the beautiful towns of St Abbs and North Berwick.

The Mill House is ideal for large gatherings. There is a extremely large and spacious area consisting of a large kitchen with vaulted ceilings,

The Mill House is ideal for large gatherings. There is a extremely large and spacious area consisting of a large kitchen with vaulted ceilings, a dining room with large windows overlooking the countryside and a double sided wood burning stove between the dining room and the sitting room. There are two bedrooms and 1 shower room downstairs, offering guests with limited mobility the comfort of downstairs accommodation and offering privacy to smaller groups or families within a party. Likewise, upstairs, the generous master bedroom had its own en suite and the remaining family bathroom is shared by just two rooms. There is an additional wet room downstairs just off the utility room for washing down muddy gear/dogs/kids! The property has loads of secure space to store bicycles/sporting equipment, etc.

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

There is so much to see and do in this beautiful area. Walk the Border hills, or take The Southern Upland or St Cuthbert's Ways, both of which are easily accessible from the Mill House. The Earlston circular walk can be joined from the door. There is riding at Cowdenknowes, just a couple of miles from Earlston; fishing, of course, not only in the Tweed but in many of the smaller rivers round about; golf at Melrose (6m) and Lauder (7m) where you can also visit Thirlestane Castle. Other nearby stately homes of note include Mellerstain House and, of course, Sir Walter Scott's beloved Abbotsford, between Melrose and Galashiels.

The Berwickshire coast can be reached in well under an hour. Visit the sandy beach at Coldingham, or walk the spectacular cliffs at St Abbs ( also one of the foremost diving sites in the country) and see the seabird colonies there. Further up the coast is North Berwick, with the Scottish Seabird Centre, and golfers looking for a real treat can visit Lothian's famous links courses - Gullane, Luffness, even Muirfield itself.

And of course nothing could be simpler than a day trip to Edinburgh, for which you have several options. You can go by car, or take the car to the outskirts and park and ride, or simply catch one of the regular buses which pass through the village.

Melrose

Situated in the centre of the region, the Mill House is the ideal base for exploring all the Borders has to offer...from hill walking to visits to stately homes. Earlston (2m) has pubs and shops, while Melrose (6m) is a popular tourist destination at the foot of the famous Eildon Hills and has an excellent selection of shops and eating places. At Earlston, too, you are on the A68, which will take you up to Edinburgh in under an hour and is also on a bus route to the capital if you would prefer to leave the car at home (recommended!)
