NIXON work to deliver for summer of staycation

Cornhill Castle Hotel

NIXON teams up with luxury hotelier Manorview to deliver new lodges for Cornhill Castle in Biggar, as the summer of staycations begin.

Our multidisciplinary team worked for three months to deliver seven new lodges on the grounds of one of Scotland’s most popular hotel and wedding venues, Cornhill Castle in Biggar.

Together with Logspan, Interlocked Construction and landscape gardener Keith Robertson, the new cabins are now open to guests. The development is a near half a million-pound investment.

Owners Manorview Group invested in the popular wedding venue by adding the new luxurious lodges set on the grounds of the Castle. Each lodge has its own private hot tub with high spec fixtures and finishes, luxurious soft furnishings and stunning interiors; a signature style of the Manorview brand.

The sustainable log cabins were chosen to compliment the Castle’s panoramic views of the Scottish countryside, and each is named after a Scottish river. NIXON provided quantity surveying, project management and CDM (Construction, Design and Management) services as well as civil engineering on the ground infrastructure and drainage.

NIXON’s Director Dominic MacConnell said: “Working with Manorview again, we were keen to bring our expertise to the creation of the new cabins. Set on the stunning Castle’s grounds, the lodges are sustainable as well as harmonious to their location. We were delighted to work with the group again as they rise to meet the demands of the hospitality industry and cater for holidaymakers.”

Guests can also enjoy the amenities of the hotel which includes the Castle’s Ghillie Restaurant as well as the hotel bar, which is conveniently located on their doorstep.

Carlton Graham, Operations Director at Manorview Hotels, said: “We are delighted to be launching our new lodges just in time for summer.  Our team has put a huge amount of thought into the lodge design and we’re confident the stunning location and attention to detail will really set us apart from the competition.  The location, stunning views and high spec amenities ensure guests can enjoy a calming and luxurious short break all year round.”

Cornhill Castle is situated just one hour from Edinburgh & Glasgow but feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
