Tie the knot with hotel in ‘wedding capital’

The hotel is a popular wedding venue

OPERATORS looking to purchase a wedding venue in Dumfries & Galloway may be interested in The Mill Forge Hotel.

Located two miles from Gretna Green – Scotland’s ‘wedding capital’ – the 33-bedroom hotel is formed from a selection of 18th century farming barns and buildings, which is said to create “an atmospheric and romantic venue”.

The business comprises function rooms, a bar and an on-site chapel.

Set within a seven-acre plot, the hotel also features landscaped gardens and a three-bedroom private owner’s house.

Alistair Letham, a director at Colliers International, which is marketing the business, said: “Hosting over 500 weddings each year, the current owners have done an excellent job cementing The Mill Forge as one of the go-to wedding venues in this area of Scotland. This sale offers a rare opportunity to acquire a well-established and well-located hotel and wedding venue.”

Offers over £1.5 million are sought for the business.
