The Mill at Lewinshope is a converted threshing mill and has been beautifully restored. It sits within 100 acres of land and woodlands in the stunning Yarrow Valley, with many activities and attractions here and nearby, making this a fantastic holiday destination for families and groups of friends. Lewinshope offers a 5 star, self catering holiday let, providing everything you need to make your holiday extra special, so that you will want to come back again and again.

The Mill in part resembles a chalet, created using beautiful local wood and looking better each year. Comfortable and warm, with a large log fire and an abundance of logs, there's room for the whole group to come together for dining and socialising. The Mill is also suitable for wheelchair users.

There are also 2 glamping units for extra sleeping accommodation (with guests currently using shower facilities in The Mill, although a separate block is planned).

Outside is a large seating area, with a huge table and chairs, chiminea, swing and gazebo - relax and listen to the wildlife - and don't forget your binoculars. Or get together round the firepit and toast marshmallows. Guests are welcome to access the fields and woods for outdoor activities, with swing seats in an old oak - enjoy the peace that the valley brings. Please remember to close gates. The Mill Pond can get boggy so, for the safety of young children, please ensure they are accompanied by a responsible person in this area. Contact us if you have any concerns.

2 well-behaved dogs are welcome at The Mill, but please keep dogs in the boot room when wet. This has adjustable underfloor heating and is adjacent to the sitting room.
