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.

We were a group of five twenty year old guys, who stayed for three nights. The hosts were friendly and welcoming, and greatly helped to make our stay an absolutely fantastic experience. The surrounding area has a magical charm to it, and the house fits in with the place perfectly. I think that pretty much anyone would have a great time here, and I would wholeheartedly recommend this place to anyone; particularly those who like to walk, stargaze, or anyone looking for a peaceful retreat away from city life. Great value for money as well. I certainly hope to be back within the next year!

We celebrated Geoff's 60th birthday here with all the children and had a great time. Lots of space, beds and bathrooms for everybody. Good kitchen and dining area. Good setting for our Murder Mystery dinner party.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Spacious, pretty and secluded. Perfect for a relaxing few days away in one of the darkest parts of the UK.

Really tranquil location and great for looking at the stars on a clear night. Perfect for a group of friends or a family to get away from it all

Was met by Lorraine and her husband when we arrived, they live in the cottage next door. Lorraine was great at answering any of our questions prior to arrival. Spent a lovely girls weekend here at the mill. The mill is bigger than I had thought meaning the ten of us had plenty of space to lounge around. Enjoyed a nice walk around the village one afternoon. Went out one night for dinner at The Clachan Inn in Dalry - it's a good six miles away from the mill so required someone to chauffeur as taxis were difficult to come by.

It's so nice to have chance to feel truly disconnect and back to nature! The rooms are big, with plenty of space and something surprising around every corner! Take the time to explore the surrounding land.
