Lockerbie Manor in Dumfries and Galloway is set amidst 78 acres of tranquil woodland and fields inhabited with an abundance of natural wildlife. Our centre is superbly located in South West Scotland with easy access from the M74 motorway. Ideal for Scottish and English schools.
Built in 1814, Lockerbie Manor has a great history and has retained many of the original features with its master staircase, ornate ceilings and wood panelling. Before it was transformed into a country hotel it was the home of the Marquis of Queensberry, who formulated the "Queensbury" boxing rules in what is now the Dining Room.
New for 2015, Lockerbie Manor now has its own Loch within the Manor grounds, providing the perfect location for our watersport activities.
Lockerbie Manor can accommodate up to 130 pupils in the Manor house and 116 pupils in our 2 luxury POD Villages. Each separate high quality accommodation unit provides a 24 hour Duty Instructor. In the Manor House, teachers are accommodated in twin bedrooms with tea/coffee making facilities and television. Teachers also have access to common rooms. Accommodation facilities include drying rooms for clothing, and we also provide internet access on site.
Lockerbie Manor, prior to being acquired by Manor Adventure, was operated as a country hotel, so now it provides a superb experience for school groups. Totally refurbished in 2011, the Manor provides excellent en suite bedrooms and superb teacher lounges.
A totally new concept developed by Manor Adventure to offer a luxury camping experience for schools. Pupils are accommodated in 4 bedded PODs with heating and electricity, while teachers are provided with their own POD. Superbly fitted out toilet/shower blocks form part of the village. Pupils eat in the Manor building.
