Sale of hotel is on course, agent says

Activities on doorstep of Kirkcudbrightshire property


A KIRKCUDBRIGHTSHIRE hotel that’s close to a raft of outdoor activities is up for sale.

Set in five acres close to the Solway coast, the Clonyard House Hotel has been put on the market by the Thompson family, who bought the business after relocating to Scotland from east Africa 35 years ago.
There are six golf courses within easy reach of the hotel, as well as a host of other outdoor activities, including sailing, fishing and cycling.
Accommodation comprises a variety of single, twin and family rooms, as well as three suites. A Scandinavian-style chalet at the back of the hotel offers three self-catering rooms; and there’s two-bedroom owner’s accommodation on the second floor of the hotel.
A 60-cover restaurant and lounge bar are open to the public as well as guests; there’s also a 30-cover conservatory where breakfast is served.
Bruce & Co’s Lewis Murphy, who is handling the sale, said the hotel benefits from strong wet, dry and accommodation sales all year round.
“The sale of the Clonyard House Hotel offers an exciting and rare opportunity to acquire a well known and loved hotel, which is held in high regard by locals and visitors from further afield,” he said.
“Whilst repeat custom is enjoyed all year round, much potential exists to expand and develop the business should the new incumbents wish.
“The property is undoubtedly highly desirable; its setting is truly beautiful and the business model is sound. As such, we anticipate interest in early course.”
Offers in the region of £799,000 are sought for the freehold.
