Superb house!

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!
Owner's Response: It was pleasure looking after you all ,only so glad you liked the property and all generations enjoyed .
I hope to to see you all back again .Thank you for choosing Overbells at Mabie .Regards Don

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!
Owner's Response: Cheers ,looking very much to seeing you all on your next visit .Have your slot already on my system .
Hope very much you all enjoy !!

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

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
