Mill House

The Mill House was described by its first guests as “the wow factory.” It’s not about the nine bedrooms sleeping up to 22 guests.

It is the stunning open plan reception and living space of 75 square meters, with contemporary kitchen, double height dining area, and gorgeous lounging space with three huge sofas and an open fire.

That’s complemented by the two further reception rooms, sauna and 7 person hot tub, private gardens running down to the river…
 

The Mill House at Ormidale has taken us two and a half years to restore, and was christened by its first guests as “the wow factory.” We market ourselves as for 14 adults and up to 10 additional children and with rooms on four levels, it will accommodate a large group in real style and some luxury. The main feature and glory of the place is the sociable open plan 80m2 ground floor reception area which opens up from a fabulous kitchen, through the dining area with vaulted ceiling, into a generous three-sofa living / lounging area with open fireplace.

The dining and lounge areas feature the original exposed stone wall and light floods through a large glass archway incorporating the house entrance from the courtyard. It’s a stunning room, and the natural communal gathering place for any party that takes both The Mill House and Old Barn at Ormidale. The two matching dining tables can be placed end to end to enable you to sit down and eat in one place as a party of 24.

The contemporary staircase in the centre of the arch gives a natural focus and pulpit like performance space for speeches! All the reception areas on ground and mezzanine levels are tiled in a natural riven slate which goes beautifully with the old stone walls and new white plaster walls, with underfloor heating throughout the house provided by an environmentally sustainable ground source heat pump.

The stone fireplace (not photographed because a new addition) features the saw bench from the original mill, as the mantelpiece. The Mill House reception space is big enough to seat 60 or 70 for a wedding breakfast, so it is a generous sociable area for any party renting it for a house party or holiday.

Ormidale House is rated at the top of VisitScotland’s 4 star band for excellence; the Mill House and Old Barn were described by a VisitScotland assessor as “a solid 5 star downstairs and barely 2.5 stars upstairs” due to the small size of the bedrooms, and we agree with those assessments but we always stress that these houses are not part of the award scheme and do not have a star rating. Both the Mill House and the Old Barn at Ormidale have been given special awards by Tripadviser and Olivers Travels for the consistency of the 5 / 5 reviews awarded by their customers.
