Wonderful stay
We had such a lovely overnight stay here. Heather and Martin were really welcoming, our room was extremely comfortable, and the breakfast hearty and delicious. It was especially nice to have the opportunity for a little wander in the woods after breakfast. Thanks very much, and we’ll be back on our next trip south.


Mr & Mrs Robinson
How wonderful to see red squirrels, running and playing in the gardens and woods so close had not seen any for 25years, we saw otter in the river and many many different birds.


Liz Paul Soutar
Had a wonderful, and all too short stay here again. Once more , we were lucky enough to see red squirrels,herons, and an otter in the river fishing. As we said before, have recommended this welcoming & peaceful place to family and friends (and my sister stayed in Feb. and loved it too!). Due again in August-looking forward to it already!Martin and Heather are the perfect hosts.


Liz and Paul Soutar
Just back from a wonderful break here at Riverside Mill. We cannot praise it highly enough-Heather and Martin are perfect hosts,their black labrador dog is very friendly, and the setting is just lovely! We were lucky enough to see, in just a few hours, a red squirrel, herons, a kingfisher and an otter! First class all round, we have already reommended this special place to family and friends, and we will be back soon.
