Superb house!

  • 5 of 5
Came to stay at Overbells to celebrate a 65th and 70th birthday and we weren't disappointed. The house has to be one of the best we have stayed in. There was 10 of us that went (6 adults and 4 kids) and the 2 wee dogs. The house had loads of room, the Pool table kept the kids and adults entertained for hours as did the big bath! All the facilities were great, the house has everything that you can think of. We even had lovely weather for the week. I can't recommend your house enough. Thanks again for letting us stay!

Brilliant house in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5
This is the third time we have stayed and once again the whole family enjoyed the quality of the accommodation, the standard of service from Donald and the countryside around Mabie. We would recommend the property to families with children and also the Mabie House Hotel which welcomed us for several large family meals. Superb!

Another fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5
Came to Overbells for a weeks holiday with all the family ages ranging from 4 months to 67 years and had another wonderful stay. It was snowing when we arrived but it didn't stop us from exploring the forest and surrounding area's. The best bit of the day was getting in the hot tub after a day in the snow. Thanks Don for another lovely week your house is the best we've been in.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5
Our parents arranged a week at Overbells as a family get together. The house could not have been more perfect, we were 7 adults and 3 children and had fantastic dining room and sitting room for everyone to get together but also more than enough room for anyone wanting space on their own.

The description and photos do not do it justice it certainly exceeded expectations, we were welcomed by Donald on arrival and had no other need to contact him during our stay,

We really didn't venture very far Dumfries is so close and Tesco do a delivery service, highly recommend Mogerleys butchers and Casa mia restaurant. Pool table was well used as was the jacuzzi bath must also confess to having a go on the karaoke as wel!!

Fabulous house really hope we get the opportunity to return.

Thank you Donald

Excellent Holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5
What a fabulous weekend we had at Overbells to celebrate my 50th birthday. A group of 8 adults, all agreed it was a great party house with a great sound system (complete with karaoke if you wanted).

I would echo all the comment made by previous reviewers and would definitely recommend Overbells. Donald is a great host, helpful and really easy to deal with.

One of the best bits for me was the Pampering treats for the ladies in our group at House of Beauty, which is run by Donald's partner, Melanie. We booked a party package and we all picked two treatments each. Melanie arranged for us to use their luxury relaxation lounge and even supplied crystal flutes for our champagne! It was a lovely afternoon and Melanie and her staff were great - nothing was too much trouble!

Then it was back to the house, where the men were enjoying the lounging facilities, for a jacuzzi bath and cocktails! It was a great chilling out experience and the weather allowed us to take full advantage of the extensive gardens. Although we didn't have children with us, Donald has gone to a lot of effort to make sure there are plenty toys (indoor and outdoor) to keep the kids happy. I wish we had known about Overbells when our kids were younger.
I would definitely recommend Overbells and if you want some pampering check out House of Beauty too.
A great holiday experience for young and old.
