The boss of the failed tour operator lowcostholidays Paul Evans is selling the country house hotel he bought in 2018.

Paul acquired Torrs Warren in Dumfries and Galloway on the Scottish borders two years after lowcostholidays collapsed with debts of £25 million.

It’s understood the Eton-educated travel industry veteran paid £175,000 for the rundown 10-bed property and went on to transform it into a boutique hotel organising shooting parties and other events.

It has been on the market since May 2021, with an original price tag of £900,000.

The price was dropped in May and again in July this year to £775,000.

A separate owner’s cottage in the hotel grounds is for sale for an extra £200,000, reduced from £250,000.

Estate agent Bruce & Co said it had received interest in the hotel ‘but nothing that has gone through’.

A spokesperson added: “Typically it takes around 18 months to sell a business like this, it’s not unusual for it to take a couple of years or more.”

Travel Gossip has tried to contact Paul for a comment but we understand he is very ill and undergoing extensive treatment.
