Reviews Here's what our lovely guests have to say....

  • Alice, Manchester UK December 2018

    Gorgeous countryside location and very close to Drumlanrig Castle and the little town of Thornhill


    My friend and I stayed at this special place overnight and it was really wonderful. Melanie and John’s attention to detail was fantastic.


    They have thought of everything to welcome guests and make their stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.  Thanks we will be returning soon!

  • Kelda, Derbyshire November 2018

    Cannot recommend this place highly enough, Melanie and John are the perfect hosts, the house and grounds are breathtaking and its so comfortable and relaxing.


    The hospitality is second to none. Melanie cooks a perfect full Scottish breakfast and we would return in a heartbeat.

  • James, Staffordshire November 2018

    A beautiful place with a homely feel. The hosts were so friendly, informative and accommodating making our stay peacefully and relaxing, a home from home holiday.


    The location is glorious with great scenery. We came away completely relaxed and well rested.

    We’d love to return and enjoy it all again.

  • Hazel, Stratford November 2018

    We had a really excellent time during our stay at a Nithbank. Nothing was too much trouble, Mel & John are simply the best hosts with a wonderfully warm welcome.


    They showed us the immediate area around the house and we marveled at the views to be had, which could have been missed had we not known about them. They gave us detailed information about other areas to visit.


    Mel made us the most fabulous food.


    Our room felt sumptuous and grand, the bed was so comfortable and the views across the valley are stunning.


    We felt like VIP guests the whole time we were there.

  • Freddie, Gloucester October 2018

    A truly spectacular country estate that is in the heart of Scottish countryside. The perfect weekend escape away from reality and the city.


    Beautiful country walks, lovely views and a homely feel.


    10/10 would recommend to a friend. Melanie provides a mean breakfast!

  • Louise, Cheshire October 2018

    “Wonderful 5* weekend, Nithbank is beautifully presented, quiet and spotlessly clean.


    A great location with incredible far reaching views.


    Fabulous full Scottish breakfast – Nithbank is the perfect place to unwind”.

  • Dianne, Dartmouth October 2018

    Our room was a beautiful period room, with views of the stunning countryside, from both of it’s windows.


    John and Mel, our hosts, couldn’t have been more helpful and knowledgeable about the house and the area.


    The food was outstanding, full of flavour and all locally source too.


    Certainly 5*. Looking forward to our next visit to Nithbank.

  • Steve, South Derbyshire September 2018

    My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying at Nithbank for a couple of nights, we know Dumfries and Galloway from many years ago when we holidayed in the region when our children were small, this is a beautiful country house set in nice grounds with views over the river Nith.


    Our room was very large with a comfortable king size bed with luxury bedding, tea and coffee making facilities, bottled water, sweets chocolates and biscuits, the breakfast was superb and set us up for the day.


    Dumfries and Galloway is a beautiful part of Scotland with much to discover, we will certainly be going back in the summer.

  • Jackie, Leicestershire September 2018

    Nithbank is the perfect place to relax and unwind and recharge your batteries.

    It is a beautiful house with extremely comfortable rooms and a very warm welcome.  We can’t wait to return again soon.

  • Sally, Glasgow September 2018

    Wow! …We had the most amazing time at our say in this spectacular house.
    Mel and John you have certainly nailed it!

    The attention to detail is breathtaking. I’ve stayed in so many beautiful places around the world, but to have this paradise to retreat to is a dream.

    I will be back very soon I hope.

    I wish you every success for the future and I know your future is bright.
