A 400 year old 'A' listed historic mill in a magical location.
Set in 14 acres of rivers, waterfalls, ancient woodland with abundant wildlife, all under the famous Galloway night skies.
Fabulous, hiking biking and watersports are on your doorstep.

The space
Ironmacannie mill has serviced the local population for over 400 years as a grain mill until it was converted into a dwelling house in 1990. It sleeps a maximum 10 people.; 3 bedrooms and a couple of fold down beds.
It is decorated very simply with real materials and a rustic palate.
It has 2 bathrooms and an extra loo.
The machinery room holds much of the original machinery of the mill, which can still turn when the water is diverted to the wheel.
The ancient kiln room door at the back takes you directly into the river. If you are only wishing to book two nights please read the 'other things to note ' section at the end of the description.

Guest access
You will have the whole house and garden with 14 acres of land to play in. Fishing on site.
People with children should be aware that property is on the banks of a river and therefore potentially dangerous. We have a wood fired hot tub available for rent.
Costs for weekend / any 2 nights are £69 including all the wood.
Prelighting service available £20.
Woodland sauna experience £50 per session.

Other things to note
We pefer to let on a weekly basis, fri to friday.
If its low season or short notice we will consider short stays, so please get in touch. Our low /mid season weekend rates start at 450 and run Fri to monday. .
Even if people only stay till Sunday it means that there is no horrible Sunday morning check out pressure for you, and no Sunday cleaning stress for us. It works well for everyone.
Pets are welcome but are charged at 20 per animal.
