Lockerbie Estate

Lockerbie, Scotland

Dating back to the 1700’s, Lockerbie Estate is a grand Palladian mansion that can accommodate up to 41 guests across the main house and two cottages. The property is perfect for large groups, weddings, and family getaways in the beautiful area of Dumfries and Galloway, in southern Scotland.

Having undergone a complete refurbishment, Lockerbie Estate still retains its original character and charm, and benefits from modern touches. The Main House accommodates 33 guests across fourteen bedrooms, three with en-suites, and the bedrooms have a classic feel with period-style pieces. There is a mixture of bedroom layouts, ideal for families with young children or couples, and rooms can be configured if required. The large professional kitchen is perfect for cooking up a feast and guests can dine together in the main ballroom, large dining room, or black and white hall. If you don’t fancy cooking at all during your stay, there is the option to rent Lockerbie Estate fully serviced with staff. There is a PS4, Nintendo Wii, Scalextric, table tennis, pool table, and Sky TV for guests to enjoy during their stay.

Both cottages sleep an additional four guests each, and offer a double and a twin bedroom each, plus their own kitchen and living areas. There is also parking right outside the door for each cottage, ideal for guests who prefer a more independent stay.

Outside there are eleven acres of gardens to explore and outdoor enthusiasts will love the swings, trampoline and adventure course that can found in the grounds. There are five drives approaching the property, adding to the majestic ambience of Lockerbie Estate and there are plenty of picturesque spots for wedding photographs. Lockerbie Estate holds around 40 weddings annually and has its own wedding licence.
