Lovely setting, friendly and welcoming hosts, clean and fabulous rooms, what more could one ask for? Breakfast was excellent and the hosts couldn't do enough in making us comfortable. Thoroughly recommended a stay here, if you are not in the area, get yourself there, it will be worth it!!

Our stay at Mavisburn was altogether too brief. We selected based on Trip Advisor reviews as a stop over point on a journey south, so we expected it to be good, but we were blown away by the experience. The hosts were brilliant - attentive, friendly, welcoming, but also discrete, all of which contributed to a very relaxing atmosphere. The... More

Touring Scotland with hubby we booked Mavisburn on reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. Excellent communication on booking with very clear instructions on how to find the B&B (thank you much appreciated as would have struggled without!). The B&B is tucked away in a quiet hamlet within the forest and thus was very peaceful & dark. Elaine... More

Mavisburn is the best B&B we have stayed in. From a really warm welcome by Elaine and John with a cup of tea and biscuits to a fabulous en-suite room.
