Christmas Starts Here: Advent Calendar Offer

2 Dec 2020

We are so thrilled to be featured as one of 24 doors in Scotland Starts Here’s incredible Advent Calendar for 2020. There are 24 unique and exclusive experiences, gifts and unexpected treasures available – all from businesses in the South of Scotland. Dod Mill can be found at door 18! We’re offering a totally exclusive “Escape” to our Fishing Hut river cabin, with a great discount, a luxury breakfast hamper and an amazing bag of mini pamper goodies by Laura Thomas Co.


The Dod Mill offer sits behind Door 18 on Scotland Starts Here’s Advent Calendar. We hope you like it – we really feel that what everyone wants for Christmas this year is a cool, peaceful escape, away from the chaos of 2020. So, we’re offering a gift voucher for a 2/3 night luxury stay in our gorgeous eco-cabin – the Fishing Hut. We are also including a free gift of pamper goodies by Laura Thomas Co as well as a luxury breakfast hamper (locally sourced of course!).

Gift an “Escape” to the Fishing Hut

The Escape includes a 2 or 3 night stay at our cool and quirky Fishing Hut river cabin. This is Scottish glamping at its most memorable and makes for an inspired gift for anyone weary of all that’s happened in 2020.

The Fishing Hut is a very unusual hideaway on the bank of the Boondreigh River. It’s a half-vintage-caravan, half-wilderness cabin which is perfect for embracing off-grid living and campfire cooking, without compromising on interior style. It’s a bit of an upgrade to ordinary glamping – this place is completely unique, rustic and luxurious whilst still retaining the “back-to-basics” set up which glampers crave.

The Fishing Hut is surrounded by fields, a river, trees and wildlife. And a few rare breed sheep! Heat and light come from renewable sources.

Whoever you buy this gift for, they’re in for a treat: now you just need to decide who deserves this Escape from 2020 the most!!

Hamper & Pamper Goodies

The offer includes a luxury local breakfast hamper which will be sourced locally – we have incredible eggs, artisan bread, local cheeses, jams, juices etc! We are also going to include an extra free gift: an “Escape” canvas bag by Laura Thomas Co filled with travel-sized versions of some of their gorgeous products:

  • Lavender Pillow Mist
  • Wood Scented Candle
  • Citrus + Herb Hand & Body Lotion
  • Flowers + Wood Hand Wash


£380 (RRP £450!) plus breakfast hamper and free gift of a Laura Thomas Co “Escape” bag with pamper goodies.
