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.


Another Happy Customer

We have eaten many breakfasts in many hotels but this has always been the VERY best. Perfectly cooked and presented by wonderful, attentive, friendly staff - who could ask for more? This beautiful cooked meal comes after a selection of cereals, yoghurts and fruit juices. Served in a beautiful dining room with bay windows looking out onto extensive wooded grounds and, if you are lucky, you may even see a Red Squirrel or two!
