WHERE TO STAY

Mill of Dess Lodge (above) opened in the sum­mer of 2015. Con­verted from ex­ist­ing farm build­ings and ac­com­pa­ny­ing a ren­o­va­tion of Mill Cot­tage, it pro­vides Dee­side with high-qual­ity ac­com­mo­da­tion. The lodge is re­splen­dent with dis­tressed mir­rors, antler chan­de­liers and wood­burn­ing stoves. Re­lax in the lounge with a drink be­fore din­ner, which is served on a long ban­quet ta­ble, be­fore re­treat­ing to one of the ex­tremely com­fort­able bed­rooms – each named af­ter a dif­fer­ent pool. Un­like Mill Cot­tage, the lodge doesn’t have a view of the river, but it does have lovely views of sur­round­ing fields, forests and hills. On-site ken­nels make it dog-friendly too. Ac­cess to the fish­ing is very good with ve­hi­cle tracks to most pools. At the award-win­ning hut on Up­per Dess an­glers can en­joy a re­viv­ing lunch while re­lax­ing in bat­tered leather arm­chairs be­neath mounted stag heads.
