Reviews Here's what our lovely guests have to say....
Everything written below is true! It’s difficult to overstate how beautiful a place this is. The views are stunning, the grounds immaculate and tranquil, our bedroom one of the most elegant and charming rooms we’ve ever stayed in (which goes for the venue as a whole), and the service was flawless. And if you don’t believe me, just the other week Nithbank was named best B&B in Scotland! Then there’s Mel and John, who are two of the kindest and most generous hosts you could ever hope to meet. They’re just lovely and, yes, the myth re tea and scones/cakes on arrival is true! There’s no doubt about it - we’ll be returning and soon!

Mini-Moon Break…What an amazing place to stay! The hosts as well as the facilities were amazing. Fantastic location which is secluded but close to the local village.The breakfasts were a 3 course meal in themselves and being treated to warm home made scones and tea after long walks were just what the doctor ordered!Melanie was an amazing host- attentive and really showed the passion and care leading to the great experience my husband and I had!Highly recommended and look forward to staying there again!

One of the most lovely and hospitable places on earth!
Our stay with Mel and John was incredible!
We don’t want to go!
An amazing cycling experience with Galloway Cycling Holidays: The landscape and people of Galloway were the stars. Our route included a visit to the grave of the inventor of the bicycle! Then scones in our suite, I don’t want to ride I just want to sit here and look at the view!!

The Best B&B Ever…
From the warm welcome to the warm scones to the beautiful room to the amazing breakfast this was the best B & B we have ever stayed in.
Melanie and John have gone the extra mile to make this an unmissable stopover if you are in the area.

We travelled to Nithbank from our home in Kent, and after a long journey it was just what we needed. Beautiful house in a good location, lovely views and beautiful garden. Greeted with warm scones and homemade jam, served to our room, which was large and very comfortable. Lots of special little touches made this place special and I would recommend to anyone that you will have trouble bettering this place. Very clean, host very helpful and knowledgable of the area, great breakfast included using local suppliers where possible. Many thanks its been enjoyable and relaxing.

We went to stay at Nithbank (visiting UK from NZ) for one night and ended up extending our stay. We would have loved to stay longer! Nithbank has been renovated beautifully and both Mel & John could not have been more welcoming. The breakfast was amazing, cooked with thought and good quality, local ingredients. The view from the room would be hard to beat and the bed was by far the most comfortable of our trip. We have been recommending a stay at Nithbank to everyone we can. A true escape in a pretty special location. Hope to visit again.Glenn

My wife & I decided to escape the city and enjoy some quality time together at Nithbank House. From the moment we arrived and throughout our stay, Melanie & John made us feel welcome and relaxed.
Our room in the wing we stayed meant we had our privacy, it also had wonderful views of the river and beautiful grounds.
The breakfast was a real highlight. Top quality, local ingredients cooked perfectly.
It’s obvious that a lot of time and consideration has gone into making this destination venue a truly memorable place to stay.
This is Bed and Breakfast on a whole new level!

Oh wow! We’ve Fallen in Love with Nithbank!
This is a beautifully restored country house set in stunning woodland.
The attention to detail in the house is second to none. Mel & John were perfect hosts, providing the most delicious scones & breakfast.
We stopped over en route home from a trip to Scotland. Whilst dinner isn’t provided it was a short walk to the village where we had an enjoyable dinner at the Buccleuch & Queensberry Arms Hotel.
