150-bed hotel planned near Leswalt

A 150-BED, Four Star Hotel, golfers' cottages and leisure facilities are planned for a complex near Leswalt.

As the 'Free Press' revealed last week, local farmer Bertie McClung is seeking planning consent for a holiday complex on a 14.5 acre site at Creachmore Croft, on the east side of the main Stranraer to Leswalt road near Craigencrosh roundabout.

Architects acting for Mr McClung have already been in touch with planning officials in Stranraer.

If he succeeds in getting outline consent to develop the site, Mr McClung will try to interest Scottish-based hotel and leisure companies in taking over and developing the project.

In the meantime, architects will carry out a detailed feasibility study, investment appraisal and business plan into the scheme.

These will be based in a 150-bed four star hotel, golfers' cottages and conference/banqueting facilities.

Leisure pursuits will be catered for by a swimming pool, fitness suite, health spa, specialist rose/Japanese garden and equestrian centre with a two or three mile riding track.

The complex would also plan to have recreational links with the adjoining Stranraer Golf Club, Soleburn Garden Centre which is bearby, a boating facility on Lochryan and an open farm or agricultural museum.
