There is an excellent hall with staging and a good quality sound system.   Seating for up to 300 people.
Our dining room seats up to 200 people and the onsite catering team can cater to all types of occasions.  
St Colomba church is a beautiful little church which can be used for weddings, baptisms, etc on request.  
The extensive grounds provide plenty of space and activities.
The classrooms can be used for conferences or gatherings where work spaces might be needed.


Our hostels provide a variety of styles of accommodaton from individual rooms to dormitory rooms sleeping up to six people.  Solway College has room for 95 people in the boarding houses during the school holidays.

The hostel option is a great one for sporting teams, groups in town for conferences or activities or just a big family group.  The prices are very competitive and allow everyone to stay on one site.
