  • Hi Do you have an en suite with not to many stairs to reach it - suitable for 2 ladies travelling that don’t mind if sharing a double? Thanks
    Yes I have a double on the first floor, there is a stairway with 23 stairs, but also a good sturdy banister. The room is beautiful, the Van Gogh room & has a private bathroom with bath and shower. There is plenty of space for you both. Mandy

  • Hi are u taking kids
    I do have a family room and can take children over 2, there are a lot of stairs which would be difficult for a baby and pushchairs, cots etc.

Host review score

Mandy Nicholson
Built in 1863, this ex-Clydesdale bank has been recently renovated to a high standard. The 3 bedrooms are themed on famous artists, Picasso, Van Gogh and Monet, making them colourful and interesting. The Van Gogh room is all about the contrasts between his 'Sunflowers' and 'Starry Night' with a nod to his own bedroom in Arles, it has a street and mountain view (with a few rooftops thrown in) and private bathroom. The Picasso room has dual aspect views with a rather special arched window that you can sit in. This room is bright, more masculine in design like the cubist movement and contains some rather special details painted by your host. The Monet room is a place of calm, water lilies, pastel colours and self care. You will lose yourself in the opulence of the colours and furnishings and admire the view whilst chilling in 'cosy corner'. The Picasso and Monet rooms are on the 2nd floor (make sure you are OK with stairs) and share a luxury bathroom with a roll top freestanding bath and stunning views of the mountains that 'hug' Dalbeattie. The dining room is a tranquil paradise of blues and greens so that your breakfast can be savoured in a environment of peace.
Mandy is a Creative Genius Consultant, Artist and Author who helps creative women to build their businesses. She hosts creative retreats 8 times a year in the property and offers B&B outside of these. I love meeting the amazing people who enjoy the west coast Scotland, and who want something a little different and a bit special. The Art Bank was created for people who love creativity, art, crafting and colour. There are so many places that are afraid to inject their personality into their decor, not mine! I have chosen three of my favourite artists and themed the rooms around their art, personalities and styles (even adding a little mural to every room myself). I have worked in hospitality, retail & the online space of almost 3 decades now so I know what you want when you book a holiday or short break, comfort, a touch of luxury an outstanding breakfast to fuel your day and a joyous host. I have made it my mission to provide all of the above and more and I know that you will love staying at The Art Bank and that you will tell all your friends about us.
Dalbeattie is a friendly town with everything you need within walking distance of the property. There is free parking on the high street, but also 2 free car parks less than a 2 minute walk from the house where your car is safe. There are lots of good takeaways and eating venues and we are only a 8 minute drive from Castle Douglas the food capital of the west coast. Colliston park is a couple of minutes walk from the house and has everything you could want in an outdoor space, children's play areas, tennis courts, football pitch, a duck pond, a river running adjacent and a good long dog walk with plenty of bins! There is a loch nearby and 7Stanes, our very own mountain biking, hiking, walking space surrounding the town. Seeped in history and close to so many fabulous tourist attractions and historic Scottish towns and villages, Dalbeattie is a great base for your break.
