We are following government advice closely and as soon as we are able, we are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to The Lint Mill. For now, we are asking all of our guests with reservations to defer them to later this year or to 2021 and 2022. To all of our lovely guests who have already deferred their reservations or purchased vouchers from us….. thank you so much. It means a lot to our very small business to have your continued support. Colin and Deborah
For the future. When we re-open, you can continue to expect the highest levels of cleanliness and hygiene. Our introduction of the recommended extra cleaning and hygiene requirements for the ‘new normal’ will be implemented to keep you safe and able to enjoy The Lint Mill and all it has to offer.

The Lint Mill is in a truly delightful rural setting off the beaten track. The accommodation is very comfortable, reflecting traditional tastes and the keen interests of Colin and Deborah in organic farming (they have certified organic status), as well as their artistic and other interests. Colin is a marvelous cook using mainly their own meat and vegetables....the lamb in a red currant sauce was superb eaten in the conservatory and the “full Scottish” breakfast was magnificent.

We've been to a lot of Sawday places because we always trust how good they are, but this has been a truly exceptional experience!

My word! What an amazing time I've had! Colin and Debby, thank you so much for making this last week such a tremendous experience. Aside from the luxury of being able to get on with the 'creative' side of my retreat, I've just had such a great time. What a wonderful place and thank you so much for all the first class food. Can't wait to come back!

Many, many thanks Debby and Colin for these lovely days here in The Lint Mill. We were really glad to spend our time at this fantastic place. We enjoyed everything so much and felt so cosy and happy. Everything was perfect! Thank you also for the great 4 star meals that Colin cooked, wonderful! Thank you especially for the warmth in your home, on the one hand for the log fire and on the other for the warmth in your hearts. The Lint Mill is like paradise!

I visited for 'A Beginner's Guide to Organic Smallholding' course. Thank you for making me feel so welcome. Everything was exceptional - food, accommodation, animals and of course Colin and Deborah. The course was so well organised and enjoyable. Thanks again.
