The
Experience

Rolling countryside, fields of sheep and a rushing river surround this peaceful converted mill. You have your own light, roomy wing with sitting room, separate entrance and garden so you’ll feel nicely private.

Your hosts’ passion for living off the land is inspiring – meet their rare breeds of sheep, pigs and hens whose meat and eggs will end up on your plate, along with fruit and vegetables from the big kitchen garden. Peacocks wander and the dogs, Golden Guernsey goats and geese are all part of life on this working smallholding.

You are very well looked after. As well as tea and cake in the conservatory and tasty breakfasts Colin will prepare a lunch platter if you don’t want to go out, a packed lunch for day trips and seasonal dinner with a bit of notice. Stay all day if you want or wander two miles to the pub.

Reviews

The Lint Mill is an exceptional place to stay! Colin and Debbie offer a warm welcome to their ecologically minded small holding and provide not only all the comfort you could hope for, but also delicious home cooking using their own produce. I've restored my sanity here during a few days special retreat and we have also brought our grandson, who loved the interaction with the animals. The Lint Mill is per fctly located deep in the countryside, but only a short distance from Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The Lint Mill is a wonderful place to stay. A real piece of paradise to find. You have a fabulous space to stay which was so comfortable. It was a real treat to have the log fire burning as it was snowing outside. All the attention to detail such as the natural soaps make it a real special place to stay. The food for both breakfast and dinner was superb. I can't recommend it highly enough! We had our 2 year old with us and Colin went out of his to make her a special meal and cook what she wanted for breakfast. Colin showed us all the animals which was a bonus. Great place

Vicki, Kilsyth

We had 3 relaxing nights at the Lint Mill. We were spoiled by the comfortable and tasteful accommodation reflecting Deborah's care and attention which had all the qualities of a top hotel. This was coupled by the excellent attention to detail in the meals prepared and served by our super host Colin. All freshly sourced from the gardens of the Lint Mill. Overall it was a chance to experience a special approach to sustainable living with genuine hospitality with made Patrick's 60th birthday visit to Lanarkshire one to remember.

Fiona, Manchester

We stayed at The Lint Mill on our way to north Scotland and repeated on the way back down. A wonderful place to stay - so inspiring and peaceful. Would certainly recommend. Very good food cooked by Colin - would love to return.

Jenny, Hungerford berkshire

We stayed at The Lint Mill following a day cycling in Scotland's finest weather (rain all day, we were drenched). Colin had lit the wood burner and prepared a beautiful dinner for us, their hospitality was second to none. The selection at breakfast was more than ample and fuelled us nicely for another day in the saddle. The bed was super comfortable, so a good nights sleep. Our only regret is that we didn't have another day to enjoy ourselves here... Thanks again

Richard

Debbie and Colin's Lint Mill is a delight. The accommodation is very comfortable and pleasing to the eye. You have half the house - a lovely airy bedroom with bathroom and down the spiral staircase a cosy sitting room with woodburner and finally the conservatory where breakfast is served. Colin is a marvelous cook using mainly meat and vegetables from his small farm. Dinner is always a lovely occasion in Colin's own stylish conservatory. lovely place to chill out and recharge batteries.

Rosalie, Penrith

Attended Bread Matters course and needed a place to stay and what a gem I found. Being newly bereaved I needed to feel safe and secure. Colin and Debby were absolutely lovely, kind and thoughtful hosts. The food was devine. I took great comfort from the log burning stove which was still burning brightly when I returned home late in the evening from a long day. I would definitely recommend Lint Mill especially if you are a new widow travelling alone for the first time. I was lucky enough to buy some home reared Shetland lamb which I plan to enjoy again very soon.

If you love luxury, comfort, beautiful surroundings and care about how we look after our world and everyone and thing in it... Visit The Lint Mill. We just got back to London after a stay and we are already planning out next trip. We met all the animals and personally thanked the hens for our (ridiculously good) morning eggs. The attention to detail is second to none. Colin and Debby have literally thought of EVERYTHING to make it a very special place to feel part of, if even just for 24 hours. Attention to detail is second to none. Delicious, delightful and definitely going back.

Abbey, London

Stayed with Colin and Debbie for two nights on our return from holidaying in the highlands. Wonderful location, very peaceful. Enjoyed meeting all the animals and Colin and Debbie's approach to slow food and organic farming. Both evenings had wonderful food, all from the land on which we were staying. Definitely on our list to return when we head up to Scotland again.

David, Sheffield

Yet another excellent stay. This was my second visit to Lint Mill and once again Colin and Deborah were the perfect hosts. My sister & I had a delicious local cheese & charcuterie platter in the evening next to a wood burning fire. The house is cosy & warm; every detail is considered for guest comfort. Lint Mill is also an excellent small holding where Colin produces many of the superb ingredients that he serves for both dinner and breakfast. Don't wait too long to book!

Shaz

A warm welcome coupled with warm, cosy accommodation in a peaceful and lovely setting. Extremely good value and the meals cooked by Colin are delicious. We felt totally 'spoilt' - a thoroughly enjoyable and comfortable two days.

John, Rickmansworth

Lovely peaceful place, very comfortable, friendly, with marvellous cooking! Enjoyed all the animals and interesting chat.

Sarais, Rugby

Lint Mill is a relaxing oasis of calm. Colin is a warm, friendly host who made sure we felt very much at home. Dinner was a delight; cooked from excellent, organic home grown meat, fruit and vegetables. So many generous extras and considered details throughout the house made it a pleasure to visit. Thank-you.

Nothing is too much trouble for these lovely hosts. Fab food with no airmiles! Great nights sleep in lovely linen and comfy bed.

Gill

The Lint Mill offers a truly delightful experience in a number of ways: peaceful, attractive location; great hospitality (with excellent food); constant interest (thanks not least to the 'farmyard' animals); really comfortable and relaxing accommodation. Debbie and Colin are an inspiration. We certainly hope to return.

Richard

A wonderfully peaceful place with hosts who go the extra mile. Excellent value for money with superb cooking using their own organic produce where possible.

Graham

What a wonderful place: an eco-friendly oasis with sumptuous accommodation (the most comfortable bed we've slept in), perfect hosts and really excellent cooking. Highly recommend for couples looking for a serene getaway.

Daniel

We really loved the Lint Mill. We have stayed at many Sawdays over the last 20 years in the UK, France and Italy and this really was the best. Colin and Debbie are delightful hosts the place is idyllic and Colin cooked us some lovely food for which he was totally responsible. Some really good wildlife too an otter, two herons, a dipper as well as all the usual garden birds. A real delight.

Rosalie

Very comfortable stay looked after by perfect hosts. Excellent breakfasts & delicious meal made using home produce. Peaceful, idyllic location, close to many attractions.

Lynda

Just magic - amazing everything - all home bred and cooked organic food, hospitality, attention to detail, beautiful, clean and uncluttered yet warm and homely, Debbie & Collin are lovely, welcoming, interesting and down-to-earth folks who are happy to share their small-holding experiences. We also enjoyed the excellent selection of CDs, collection of books about eco-living and meeting ALL the many animals - everything has character, nothing soul-less or mass-produced here!! Highly recommended by Soozy & Stephen :)

Location

The neighbourhood

The Lint Mill is down a long drive, on the bank of the North Medwyn river, so you can stay as secluded as you like, exploring the gardens and admiring the animals and productive vegetable plots. To stretch your legs beyond the smallholding, choose a walk suggested by your hosts, through woods, farmland or along the river where with luck you might spy a kingfisher or an otter. Two miles away is a village with pubs, shop and post office.
