Just back from another wonderful visit to this special place. Think this was our 4th time and we will keep returning! It's just so lovely...The beautiful house, cakes, breakfast, surroundings, wildlife and hosts! We were lucky enough to see the day old ducklings this visit, it was wee chicks last time! My husband took me for my birthday this visit...

This place is a little heaven on earth. Not only is the B & B itself absolutely gorgeous but the environment is so tranquil and relaxing. Our hosts were Mandy & David, & they were delightful, very welcoming & helpful. We were served complimentary tea with a selection of fabulous cupcakes upon arrival & on our last night there a...

My partner and I were only staying for one night, although I had visited before. I can only reiterate my previous experience that this is one of the finest B&Bs that I have ever stayed at, and that includes Scotland and England and various ones abroad. Mandi and David run an immaculate establishment from the rooms to the food provided...

We had the king suite next to the wee burn. Everything from being welcomed with tea and cakes, to the room and the location were perfect. We were recommended it by the Horseshoe Restaurant and very glad that we took up their recommendation instead of staying at the nearby alternative hotel. Our hosts Mandi and David have totally nailed the...

I went with my girlfriend for a birthday treat - and what a treat. We were welcomed by David and Mandi who presented us with coffee, cupcakes and a rendition of Happy Birthday. The room was comfortable, spacious and backed onto the burn. We slept with the windows and doors open to sleep to the sound of the water. Perfect....

We initially booked Fairdean for 10th March but unfortunately had to postpone until 18th March. During the whole process of booking Mandi was very obliging in dealing with our change of date and most importantly accommodating our two dogs, one of whom is a newbie and not used to being away from home. The whole stay was faultless and both...

Had a wonderful short break at Fairydean Mill. A gem of a retreat nestled in the countryside. Beautiful, comfortable, scrupulously clean, with everything you could possibly want catered for. From time of booking to post visit, Mandi and David looked after everything, even supplying detailed route of how to find them. Its evident that they care about their guests experience...

Mandi and David are the best ever hosts. Your every wish is catered for. Fairydene is spotlessly clean and in a very quiet location. Wonderful breakfasts with Mandi's fab homemade breads and lemon curd. We so look forward to our 3 times yearly stay.

We spent a night here on the merit of reviews we'd read, and we weren't disappointed. Comfortable room with lovely en suite. Highlight was the tea and amazing cakes on arrival, and delicious smoked salmon and scrambled eggs breakfast. Great location off the beaten track yet close to excellent mountain biking and nice restaurant in Peebles. Thank you for a...

Wonderful stay at Fairydean Mill, couldn't have asked for more. The location is perfect, peacefully set in the countryside made for a restful sleep but only a 10 minute drive to the nearest town Peebles, and just over half hour to Edinburgh, perfectly located. The rooms were cosy and very very comfortable, also clean and had coffee/tea making facilities in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fairydean Mill is a hidden gem, nestling on the edge of the Meldons. The listed part of the property was once a Mill with waterwheel on Black Barony Estate. This has now been sympathetically extended to incorporate three beautifully appointed B&B rooms. The atmosphere is relaxed and luxurious. You may wake to the sounds of woodland birdsong and fall asleep to the music of Fairydean Burn, which runs through the garden, beneath venerable yews.Extensive cooked breakfasts each morning include freshly prepared fruit salads and freshly baked bread made at Fairydean Mill, together with a choice of cooked breakfasts, including vegetarian and healthy options.Beds have Hypnos mattresses and soft Egyptian Cotton sheets so you can be guaranteed a good night sleep. ... more   less
