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.

The accommodation has enough space for up to 240 young people, ranging from en suite bedrooms in the Manor for 4-6 people, with all teachers rooms en suite. There are also 4 bed eco pods located in either of the two eco pod villages. The Centre also boasts a large function room, teachers lounge and bar, plus a fully catered dining room.
