History of Mabie House

Definitely Mabie

 
 

Steeped in history

Mabie House was originally built in the 17th century and passed through several generations of local landed gentry, including the Keswick family.

In the 1960’s the Keswick family handed building over to the local Forestry Commission, who utilised it’s forest location to provide hostel accommodation for workers within the forest and nearby sawmill.

It was not until the 1970’s that it first became a large guesthouse, offering bed and breakfast accommodation to tourists and visitors to Dumfries and Galloway.

Over the years, it grew in popularity, with families looking to host weddings and christenings in the beautiful old building and surrounding grounds you can still find here today.

A perfect base to relax and explore Dumfries and Galloway from, we were proud to feature in Love From Scotland’s ‘Where to stay in Galloway and South West Scotland‘ blog recently.

 

Another Happy Customer

The whole stay was fantastic, very helpful, friendly staff. We were looking for a relaxing week and we definitely got it. We had the penthouse (room 12). It was very spacious, clean and the views of the grounds are excellent. Very quiet which is what we wanted. The breakfasts are huge, freshly cooked and more than enough. It set us up for the whole day. I can't praise this lovely hotel and the staff we met enough. If you're after tranquility and a relaxing break, this is the place for you. There's plenty of car parking, lovely walks around the area. Check out the red kite feeding station about 30mins drive also the Bainloch deer park...excellent!! Thank you for a lovely stay Phillipa, we will definitely recommend this to family and friends and we will return in the autumn with my parents...
