The detail

Bathe in the natural grandeur of the wild Scottish Borders at this stylishly converted water mill on the outskirts of Lauder. Nestled amongst untouched, rural landscapes in 5 acres of flourishing, country grounds, Dod Mill is a tranquil retreat where you can hide away from the tourist crowds. Discover their green valleys and turreted and towered castles.

The 18th century mill is a sophisticated hideout which blends its timeless heritage with a chic, designer finish. Its worn stone façade hides a minimalist, open-plan sanctuary, where crisp whites and vaulted ceilings create openness and light. Calming natural textures are used to fuse past and present, and are complimented by bold prints, contemporary furniture and salvaged, industrial touches. Look out for the Farrow and Ball shades and the solid oak timbers, next to the woven rugs, wicker chairs and framed woodland views from the windows.

Rustle up delicious gourmet food in the plum-hued kitchen, gathering around the handcrafted table or in the comfy living area. A roaring wood burner keeps things toasty and warm, along with the underfloor heating and thick, woollen throws. There’s a Nespresso coffee machine for that instant caffeine hit, beside the entertainment mod-cons and welcome gifts. Throw open the patio doors and listen to the babbling mill lade, dining alfresco on the terrace and you never know you might spot and otter!

As the nights draw in and the stars start to glisten, you can light the fire, close the shutters and climb up to your mezzanine level. Dressed with a sumptuous king-size bed and a decadent in-room bath, the bedroom is a romantic snug for cosy morning lie-ins. A modern shower room is the perfect wake up call, and is complete with handpicked toiletries and soft, fluffy towels.

Fill your days with outdoors adventures, walking through the rolling hillsides. Visit the market town of Lauder for its artisan treats and visit iconic Thirlestane Castle. You can also head 30 miles out to find Edinburgh’s historic city streets. There are endless golf courses and plenty of fishing spots, along with biking paths, horse riding trails and exhilarating outdoor sports.
