Lockerbie Manor to be used for school activity breaks

25 October 2010 by

The 32-bedroom Lockerbie Manor Hotel in the south-west of Scotland, has been sold to a company specialising in educational activity breaks.

Manor Adventure has bought the Grade II-listed manor house, set in more than 16 acres of grounds north of Lockerbie, to add to its existing properties in Shropshire, Wales, and northern France.

Vaughan Philips, chief executive of Manor Adventure, said he was immediately taken by Lockerbie Manor. "It fits perfectly into both the existing portfolio and the on-going expansion plans for the company, which will include other sites in Scotland and the North of England," he added.

The hotel, which has extensive function and conference facilities, will also be available for conventional hotel clientele when not used for children's adventure holidays.

The sale of the hotel, which had a guide price of £995,000, was handled by Colliers International.
