"Very relaxing and enjoyable stay in an extremely cosy and well equipped cottage"  "Comfortable, well appointed cottage"  "Lovely to come back to the fire on the wet/windy days.  Cottage - comfy - cosy - well equipped - very clean."  "Home to the biggest log burner I have ever seen.  Great place with everything you want."  "The cottage is lovely thanks - such comfortable beds that we found it hard to get up!"  "The cottage was very cosy and comfortable"



Mill of Tilqhillie Galleried Kitchen Overlooking Main Living AreaThe Mill of Tilquhillie offers characterful two bedroom holiday accommodation for up to four people.


Accommodation is on two floors.  The main door opens on to a landing with stairs leading up to the open plan kitchen and the main bedroom.


The kitchen is a lovely galleried room overlooking the main living area. It is very well appointed and includes a microwave cooker, a dishwasher and a table and seating for four.


The stairs leading down from the door take you into the main living area. This is a very light and spacious room containing ample comfortable seating, WiFi facility, TV/DVD with Freeview Digital Channels, a selection of DVDs and a CD player.  There is also a large wood burning stove which, when lit in the Winter, gives the cottage a lovely cosy atmosphere. 


Mill of Tilquhillie Sitting Room with Large Wood Burning Stove


Opening off the living area is a newly refurbished shower-room containing a modern electric shower, hand basin, WC, and a heated towel rail.  There is also a large cupboard which houses the washing machine.


There are electric storage heaters throughout the ground floor of the property, and electric panel heaters upstairs.  Due to the thickness of the granite walls the cottage stays very warm especially if the wood burning stove is lit.


Mill of Tilquhillie Main Bedroom with King Size Double or Twin Bedded Arrangement


The main bedroom arrangements may be adapted to suit; either a twin bedded layout or joined together to provide a king size double.  A chest of drawers and a ‘gentlemen’s wardrobe’ are also provided.


The second bedroom opens off the rear of the main living room.  This room was originally where the fire was set to toast the grain etc. in the mill.  As a result of this, the room is in fact in the style of an upside down pyramid of granite.  Inspired by the interiors of boats, the owners have built one full sized bed into either side of the room, both about four feet off the ground with three steps up to each bed.  There are also ‘lee-boards’ - slings of material- which are attached up to the ceiling at night time to avoid any accidents!  This small but unique and delightful room has been adored by children and adults alike.



Mill of Tilquhillie Entrance and Rear Patio

To the front of the cottage is a small, private garden, by the mill lade, with a patio table and chairs to enjoy the morning sun.  To the rear is another larger patio which lies within a few yards of the waterfall from the mill stream and with a view of the large wildlife pond; a favourite visiting spot for herons, wild ducks and Roe deer.  There is a picnic table and sun umbrella ideal for eating outside during the Summer months.


The Mill of Tilquhillie is situated within the garden of the owners' house with its own ample parking area.  Although it has its own small, enclosed garden, older children are very welcome to explore the woods and rough ground next to the cottage.  However, there is a lot of open water on the site and so, although young children are most welcome, they would have to be closely supervised at all times.  There is also a tarmac tennis court on site available for guests' use.
