Reviews Here's what our lovely guests have to say....
Wow! The house sits in beautiful grounds and we spent some time, wandering around and sitting admiring the stunning views and the riverside. The very spacious room was amazing, with a fabulous bathroom, extremely comfortable bed and sofa and plenty of amenities. Breakfast was superb with a great choice and again Melanie and John could not do more for us. We spent a day cycling and another walking in the area which Melanie kindly printed some maps for us to navigate our routes which was a huge help! On our final night we chose dinner in the stables, both the location and food were UNBELIEVABLE!!! Definitely recommend this place!

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.

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!

“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”.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Me and my boyfriend recently stayed at Nithbank House and had an excellent time.
Such a beautiful house in a beautiful setting. The gardens are gorgeous and if you like wildlife this is the place to see it.
The house is stunning with plenty of character. The room we stayed in was spacious, warm and very comfortable.
Melanie and John are the perfect hosts and extremely welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble for them.
We will definitely be returning in the summer for another visit to this wonderful house.

We had a wonderful stay – Melanie and John were lovely hosts, making us feel welcome before we even arrived.
The location is perfect for exploring the Dumfries and Galloway area as well as en route to other areas in Scotland.
From the fresh scones with Melanie’s spectacular homemade ginger rhubarb jam, to the scrumptious breakfast made with tasty local fare, and to the treats in the room – our stay was filled with delicious delights.
The room was so comfortable and peaceful – everything you want for a weekend away. It was absolute perfection – and we will definitely be staying here again.

Nithbank is beautifully presented, quiet and spotlessly clean.
We arrived to freshly baked scones and followed these with a walk through the garden and along the river.
In the morning we had an excellent breakfast. Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming.
We look forward to staying here again.
