We stayed at The Mill for New Year 2018-2019 and could not have wished for a more lovely way to start 2019. We were greeted with the warmest welcome and a spotless house. The views over to the central Cairngorms are fantastic and we roamed around the Glenlivet Estate and nearby hills from the door. The house had everything we needed for cooking, finding our way around (lots of maps and guidebooks) and relaxing (lots of great books, games, very comfortable beds and a warm fire). We loved staying here, have already recommended it to family and friends and are trying to figure out when we can come back!
If you're looking for complete peace and quiet to rejuvenate (and the gift of no phone reception!), beautiful views over the rolling countryside of Glenlivet Estate, invigorating walks, and day-trips to renowned whisky distilleries, castles, and Cairngorm ski resorts in winter, then the remote Mill perched on a hilltop is the ideal breakaway for you. The Mill is kitted out with everything you need to have a very comfortable stay, including an open fireplace and a wonderful library filled with books from owner Marjorie's treasure-trove bookshop, The Bookmark, in Grantown-in-Spey (be sure to pop in there too). Marjorie and Bill are wonderful hosts -- thank you! We hope to return one day soon.
We had a fantastic time at The Mill. Everything we needed and more. Bill & Marjory where especially kind and helpful. The welcome hamper was really appreciated. Our teenage boys really loved it to. We had great days out in the surrounding area, but would have enjoyed it just as much anyway. Having no internet and Tv was a bonus. It made proper family time. The only downside was that a week wasn't long enough. We will be coming back in Dec/Jan. Thank you so much
The Mill is a fantastic place to stay. Everything you need is there. The welcome hamper was very thoughtful. Bill & Marjory are so lovely and kind, nothing is too much trouble. The library and the snug are brilliant. A Really great range of books to suit all ages and tastes. We had great days out with our two teenage boys and the nights in were great to. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A week was not long enough. We will be back!
We had a wonderful time. The house was beautiful and so clean. Everything we might have needed was provided. The house has panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and is the perfect place to go to get away from a busy life. Marjory and Bill, who own the property, were so lovely and helpful. Can't recommend this property enough. Will absolutely be booking again!
Spent a week with my family at the Mill the owners Bill and Marjorie are very welcoming the cottage was stunning inside and out the views are breathtakingly stunning would definitely come back. Myself and my partner and kids had a great time.
Excellent, well appointed cottage. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The cottage has all mod cons, plenty of crockery and cutlery, fridge, freezer and good sized cooker. There are fabulous walks straight from the cottage or a short drive away. The library upstairs is fantastic and a definite bonus. The lack of TV and internet was NOT a disadvantage. It was a pleasure to stay at The Mill at Glenlivet.
Absolutely perfect! Our stay at the Mill was absolutely perfect. Hosts Bill and Marjory are lovely and didn't miss one detail in creating a relaxing escape. The Mill is cozy and comfortable while still being very roomy. The setting is beautiful and a great jumping point for the many walking trails on the Glenlivet Estate. We used the Mill as home base and day-tripped for hikes or to local sites including distilleries, a dolphin preserve, Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle. Coming back to the cottage to start a fire, make diner and read some of the many books in the Mill was a delightful and relaxing way to end our days. Marjory is full of fantastic recommendations for local things-to-do and for restaurants. She has also stocked the cottage with tourism leaflets to help you make the most of your visit. We were in Scotland for two weeks and this was our favourite part of the holiday. We will stay here again!
Tranquillity at its best, no phones, TV or broadband. Bliss.
The Mill at Glenlivet is a piece of peaceful paradise tucked away in a quiet, beautiful and isolated corner of the Cairngorms. I cannot imagine a more perfect place to escape from it all. We spent a week here over New Year's and it was the best holiday we've ever had. Lack of wifi and mobile signal was a huge plus for us as it felt completely isolated from the stresses of daily life. The cottage is immaculate, cozy, tastefully decorated and with breathtaking views over the surrounding hills. The library nook is the perfect place to spend a rainy afternoon and the big fireplace welcome after a day walking in the hills. The kitchen is extraordinarily well equipped for cooking (be sure to do a big food shop before you come as there is nowhere nearby to eat out or buy groceries). There is a seemingly endless variety of hill and valley walks that are accessible right from the front door - we only used our car twice the whole week. Gorgeous views on the walks, with mostly well marked trails and abundant wildlife (deer, rabbit, hawks, pheasants, grouse...) and aside from once on New Year's Day we didn't see a soul all week on the walks, the trails were completely isolated. All of the nearby distilleries were closed in winter but we found a brilliant whiskey shop (The Whiskey Castle) in nearby Tomintoul which was open and featured more than 500 whiskeys, well worth a visit! The hosts Bill and Marjory are so lovely, they left a delightful welcome basket and Bill picked us up at the bottom of the hill in his 4x4 as it was too icy to drive up. We would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat, ever since getting back we have been wishing we were still there!
This cottage is wonderful. Very welcoming with a super hamper and the log fire set ready to light. The views from every window were amazing. This was a very relaxing holiday and we will definitely be back.
We had a wonderful week at The Mill, a spacious and excellently equipped cottage, enjoying the views come rain and shine. I would definitely rebook if in the area again.
The Mill at Glenlivet seems like a distant memory now but it will be a Holiday cottage that will remain in our thoughts forever. Bill & Marjorie were such a lovely couple and excellent hosts and the cottage was just what we were looking for in such a beautiful setting. The cottage was all prepared for us and the gift hamper was an excellent little surprise left by Marjorie. The hosts left us to our own thing but they were always on call if we needed them. Marjorie had thought of everything in the cottage down to the smallest detail so we did not have to go out looking for anything as you usually do in a holiday cottage. The cottage made the holiday and was so welcoming to come back to every evening and the deer, buzzards and other wildlife was an added little extra. Well done to Marjorie and Bill and thanks again for making our holiday a memorable one.
A lovely cottage in a fabulous location. It was tastefully decorated and just the right size to accommodate our party of 6 adults and one child. The reading area was a gem and given more time I would happily have spent quite some time ploughing my way through the books on offer. The hosts Bill and Marjory were great and the welcome basket was a lovely touch. I would definitely recommend staying here, it feels nice and remote but is still within a reasonable distance for the excellent sites that Scotland has to offer in the area.
Lovely cottage, spotlessly clean, good furniture, amazing position, perfect location for visiting distilleries. Friendly landlords, welcome pack, wine and flowers very much appreciated, we're sure to return.
We stayed in this cottage between Christmas and new year for a very special getaway as a family. It didn't disappoint. The cottage was everything and more than the website described thanks to the careful care, attention to detail and generous hospitality provided by Bill and Marjory. The cottage itself was spotless and homely with lovely elegant Christmas decorations which lit the cottage up beautifully when we first arrived making it feel extremely festive and welcoming. There was also a welcome pack of goodies which was a lovely surprise! The area is beautiful with lots of very accessible and clearly marked out walks. It really was a perfect getaway with fresh air and time to be a family without the distractions of modern day life. All fantastically rounded off with a roaring log fire to relax in front of at the end of each day. We can't recommend this holiday enough. Thank you!!
We have had a really wonderful stay at the Mill. The owners gave us such a warm welcome. The cottage was very clean, well equipped (so much thought to all attentiveness for a holliday stay) The view stunning, fireplace and 'the library' awesome. The rooms were very nice and our time in the cottage was so serene and peaceful,to have no Wi-Fi was actually very nice. This cottage is a true holiday blessing, Thank you so much !
