Hotels in Lockerbie
Relax in the peaceful surroundings of Lockerbie Manor, a beautiful hotel located close to Gretna Green and the market town of Dumfries, once home to Robert Burns. The 78 acres of tranquil grounds and woodland that surround the hotel provide the perfect environment for a relaxed stay. The Manor's interior has kept its charm, retaining original ornate ceilings and a wood panelled master staircase.
Lockerbie Manor dates from 1814 and was built in the Georgian style for Sir William Douglas and Dame Grace Johnstone. Their famous great grandson John Sholto Douglas, the 8th Marquis of Queensberry, was responsible for formulating the present day Queensberry Rules of boxing. It is believed that the rules were completed here in this house. In 1920, the Manor became a hotel.
