Allanton Mill - the perfect, charming country break
Left on 03/05/2014 for a stay in January 2014 | RHeslop
We have just returned from a week spent at the beautiful allanton Mill and absolutely enjoyed our stay. The mill is a charming holiday cottage overlooking the Burn, and we were provided with a warm welcome by Jeanette and Nigel, our hosts. They were incredibly warm and helpful throughout our stay. The cottage itself is well appointed and tastefully decorated. We were within easy driving distance of local amenities, and there was a very helpful Welcome Pack detailing places to visit and activities. Overall we had a lovely time and I would recommend the Mill for the perfect, charming country break.
