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

  • Pete, California August 2019

    Everything was perfect!


    We hired a road bike and an electric bike from Galloway Cycling Holidays, a great experience and a stunning and peaceful area to explore.


    Thanks Mel and John, you are doing all the right things, good luck and see you soon.

  • Charles, Beverly Hills July 2019

    Our stay was sheer perfection!


    We can’t thank you enough for a dream stay.  The Cycling was Awesome.


    We had the perfect day to ride bikes. A loop, never more than a few miles from our Nithbank Country Estate base. Drumlanrig Castle and then into the hills beyond Ae. I think we were passed by 15 cars in the whole ride!


    Then the 53 mile ride that links the Galloway Highlands and the coast from Nithbank. There is quite a section of open moors in the way and some pure climbing.  The amazing single track road down hill is well worth the entry fee of the climb.


    Perfect days.

    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!

  • Dave , North Carolina July 2019

    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.

  • John, Solihull June 2019

    The Perfect Stopover with Scones on Arrival…


    Thank you for the most perfect stop-over

    The scones were very welcome on arrival, the house is fabulous.

    We hope to be up again soon to explore the area, Thank you so much.

  • Richard, Cheltenham June 2019

    Quiet, Comfortable and Opulent…


    Thank you for all your kindness and a lovely stay in your beautiful house.  It is quiet, comfortable and opulent.


    The views from our room were magnificent!

  • Paul, Kent May 2019

    Absolutely Perfect…..


    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.

  • Glenn, New Zealand May 2019

    Highly Recommended!


    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
