The Jute Store is a luxury holiday home packed with period charm. Easy to fall in love with and hard to leave!

Unwind in the well-stocked library with a book and river views. Enjoy summery al fresco breakfasts on the balcony or watch the river tumble and roar with a hot chocolate in winter.

The Jute Store sleeps up to 6 people (including infants) in the lower part of the former store building – the roof space is the separate, self-contained Loft apartment.

As the building has been built against the steep bank leading down to the river you enter the Jute Store from the upper floor – very handy for unloading suitcases from the adjacent parking area.

  • The spacious entrance hall with coat pegs and boot trays
  • A double bedroom with king-size bed and east facing balcony with garden furniture
  • A double bedroom with double bed.
  • A twin room with lovely views to the river Ericht.

  • Book room with well stocked library, easy chair, piano and juliet balcony with views over the river Ericht

With The Cateran Trail on our doorstep, Brooklin Mill is perfect for dog lovers. We are very happy to welcome up to two dogs to stay at the Jute Store.


  • Do not allow your dogs on the furniture or beds
  • If your dogs bark or chew please don’t leave them home alone
  • Ensure your dogs are fully house-trained.
  • Please be aware that there are open tread stairs in the Jute Store which may not suit some dogs.
  • We’re very happy to provide additional towels for drying doggy paws and tummies or after a swim in the river. Please just let us know.

Brooklinn Mill is made up of old buildings and has stone retaining walls in the outdoor areas, some uneven surfaces and is close to fast flowing water. Young children and dogs need to be supervised in the outdoor areas and care should be taken when moving around. The shared garden is across the track from the Jute Store and is fenced and gated. There is a gap at the front of the building between the retaining wall and the stone wall of the building. Please do not let children or dogs play in this area.
