Accommodation

The Mill House has the best single social and party space on the whole Ormidale estate.

The stylish kitchen at one end, comfy seating area at the other and dining space with vaulted curved ceiling total 75 square meters.

All with underfloor heating and plenty of space for 20 or 30 bodies to “mill” about in…..
 

Living Accommodation
The large stylish contemporary kitchen area features a granite work surface throughout, twin stainless steel sinks and two dishwashers, three hobs, two electric ovens, a large American style fridge freezer, and gadgets galore. There’s a kitchen table for eight – expandable to sit a comfortable 12 – and a breakfast bar. The separate utility room features washing machine and drier, an additional large fridge and freezer, and extra storage. As well as the stunning main open plan reception area, the ground floor also features a utility room, a loo, and a separate TV room-cum-play room with a sofabed and 42 inch flat screen LCD TV with full Sky plus package; this room has its own access to the garden and to a sandstone terrace facing the river. An additional South-facing sitting room on the mezzanine floor, again with slate floor and original exposed stone wall, gives access through a pair of french doors onto another terrace with seven person HOT TUB and other garden furniture and to the private rear garden, river and woods. So, with two separate reception rooms as well as the large open plan communal area, the Mill House living accommodation is generous and flexible. Guests also have access to a separate games cottage, desparately scruffy and scheduled for a late 2017 upgrade but a fun space for teenagers, with snooker, darts and table tennis, which is shared with the Old Barn.

Bedroom Accommodation
There are nine bedrooms altogether, each offering double or twin accommodation. The downstairs was described by a VisitScotland inspector as five star and the bedrooms as two star to two and a half-star, on the basis of the amount of space. As well as five ordinary doubles, there are two wee box / bunk rooms, a family room sleeping up to five people, and one room that can be set as a twin, a superking, or a triple. They are all way smaller than the bedrooms elsewhere on the estate, and we don’t make any claims to four star status for them, as a result – they are fine for sleeping in, but you would only have room to swing a small kitten !! We go for the same quality of goose-down and feather pillow and duvet, the same gorgeous linen, same quality of mattress, but they don’t have the space that we offer in the rest of the estate. As a result we usually restrict the adult occupancy to somewhere between 14 and 18 – classing some of the beds and bedrooms as for children. As the downstairs space is so generous, we have added extra beds into a few of the rooms to make the most of the available space and maximize the number of guests we can accommodate. While none of the rooms are enormous, with bunks and “fold aways” and the use of the sofabed we can accommodate a mixed party of 24. The six main bedrooms all have stylish contemporary wash-handbasins. Four bedrooms feature raised platform beds with storage underneath. There are three stunning bathrooms, with wall to wall travertine marble walls and slate floors, two of which feature jacuzzi baths, and a separate sauna and downstairs loo. In nine bedrooms, there are sixteen separate beds, of which eight are doubles including the sofabed.

Mill House

The Mill House can be taken in conjunction with The Garden Cottage next door – two quite large bedrooms, a shower room, and two box/ bunk rooms, all on the ground floor.  It is literally a few meters away, and means that we are a more attractive prospect for those parties including guests with either limited mobility, or with a desire for a bit more peace and privacy.  The Garden Cottage was chosen as their bridal / honeymoon suite by the last couple to get married at Ormidale, so it isn’t  exactly the shabbiest bit of the estate…
