Welcome to Marthrown of Mabie

Marthrown of Mabie is right in the heart of the forest, away from the hustle and bustle of the world - a uniquely rustic environment in a breathtaking setting, Although only a few miles from the region's capital town of Dumfries, Marthrown of Mabie is completely surrounded by forest and this makes the sounds of modern life disappear. Marthrown of Mabie is a great spot to relax and unwind, with a sauna and hot tub on site.
Marthrown is not the place for "White Gloves" but we do have a uniquely breathtaking and beautiful environment !
