Millsyde Luxury Self Catering

Millsyde Luxury Self Catering at Hendersyde

Throughout the caring conversion of Millsyde, we’ve watched the wildlife, delighted in the birdsong & been soothed by the peace of the place! We love it & hope you will too! Special and spacious, Millsyde is a single storey, level entry, contemporary country cottage, which sleeps 6.

Snuggling into a blissfully peaceful corner of our family farm above the Eden Water, you can escape the rest of the world, yet be five minutes from Kelso!


Through the terrace, the easy access, level entry, hall leads to sociable space in the kitchen, with lots of room for every-one to gather.

Cooks will enjoy the Range Master cooker, with induction hob, two ovens & grill, backed up by the dishwasher!

The light, bright sitting room offers more room to relax, perhaps by the glow of the wood burner in winter!

The master bed room has a king-sized bed and en-suite shower room.

The other two bedrooms can be prepared as twin or super-king beds. They share the family bathroom, with a double ended bath & separate shower.

The utility room has space for a dog’s bed, as well as the washing machine & pulley. If you do bring a dog, they live in the kitchen and utility room.

Warmed by central & under floor heating, wood burner & solar panels, Millsyde is comfortable & cosy throughout the year!

The boot room & secure double garage are handy for storing fishing rods, bikes and golf clubs, and the table-tennis table.

A warm welcome waits, with tea on a tray when you arrive!

The following are provided…

A welcome offering of fresh fruit, eggs, milk and juice.

Logs, kindling, paper and matches for the wood burner.

Availability and Booking

Checking availability…

We can’t wait to return and have recommended it to friends, family and work colleagues. Go!  You won’t be disappointed!!

… wonderfully equipped kitchen, huge stack of games for a rainy day. I am incredibly fussy about beds and pillows and Sue has got it right as they were perfect and so comfortable. We certainly look forward to returning in the future. A true home from home.

Millsyde still has the wow factor, it is beautifully decorated and so well equipped. It really does have everything you could need and the most comfortable beds. We made the most of all the extras including the eggs that had been left (including chocolate eggs) and the cards and board games. Having level access and all accommodation on one level meant Millsyde has been perfect for my partner in his wheelchair. There was plenty of room to get round the house, in the bedrooms and en-suite which makes life so nice and easy.

I cannot praise Millsyde highly enough. We entertained our friends there, and the quality of the accommodation and the thought and care that went in to making this a real ‘home from home’ was quite outstanding. I am only concerned that when word gets out and everyone books and rebooks – we may struggle for regular slots! A big thank you to Sue, who couldn’t have been more helpful.

Our week’s stay at Millsyde Cottage was the best we have ever had, and we have stayed in dozens of cottages throughout Scotland over the last fifteen years or so. Large, airy, comfortable, clean, exceedingly well-equipped and appointed, we couldn’t have wished for better. Sue was a wonderful host, for whom nothing was too much trouble to make our stay memorable. The welcome gifts were to die for! We will be booking again shortly for two separate weeks for next year…..

You have to see Millsyde to believe it. The online photographs show you a high standard, but what they don’t capture is how beautiful each of the rooms are……the attention to detail …… and the thought put in by the owner, so your every whim is satisfied.
