Long Weekends

Secluded, relaxing and luxurious, enjoy an exquisite gourmet weekend at The Old Millhouse, in the pretty town of Dalkeith this 18th Century stone house set in 3.5 acres of private land with the River Esk flowing through the gardens.
Also to enjoy is our outdoor Hydro Pool Swim Spa open all year round for you to relax or exercise in during your stay.

Arrive on a Thursday or Friday afternoon from 3pm to a tasty afternoon tea accompanied by a lovely glass of bubbly, the perfect start to your luxurious weekend at The Old Millhouse. You will be met by our friendly house manager for a tour of the house before being left to settle in and explore the house and gardens.

When booking your weekend at The Old Millhouse, your dining will be arranged by our fabulous Chef, Nichola Pearce. On the first night of your visit, Nichola will leave a pre-prepared two-course dinner in the fridge ready for you to pop in the oven at your own convenience.

Wake up in your Hypnos Wool and Cashmere bed to the lulling sounds of the River Esk, ready for a beautifully prepared full Scottish breakfast, served by our fantastic Nichola and her team. Spend the day enjoying activities which we can arrange for you, such as retail therapy at the Restoration Yard, fishing on the river, a tour of the Scottish borders or perhaps an in-house massage or manicure, before enjoying the peace and quiet in The Old Millhouse grounds or Orangery.

Enjoy a pre-dinner Aperitivo on the terrace or in our beautiful Orangery, whilst dinner is prepared and served by Nichola. Enjoy a relaxing evening in one of our cosy lounges. Wake up on Sunday morning to a dip in the swim spa, or a warming cup of tea on the patio before enjoying a scrumptious Sunday brunch prepared and served by Nichola.

On top of all that, you will also be provided with the larder stocked with tasty Scottish goodies, bedrooms adorned with fresh flowers and a gift of hand made Scottish Chocolates. Choose your own wines to bring along. We highly recommend our local wine merchant Tarquin de Burgh, who can help pair wines for your menu choice, these can be delivered and chilled down prior to your arrival.
