Reviewer: Burns 3 reviews from this member

We eventually made it to this site after a previous attempt was halted due to a family matter.

We were certainly glad that we made it as it is one of the best sites we have been to.

Lesley and Ralph were very helpful and we were surprised to see that they were always out and about working away on the site.

The surrounding area offered plenty to do and see while the site was relaxing and peaceful. It actually felt very comfortable and we could have stayed there a lot longer if time permitted(we did actually stay an extra 2 nights).

The kids loved the park and games room. It was a change for them to disappear for so long.

We are definitely planning on a return visit next year and the kids will be looking for the crazy horse in the field behind the site.

We can only agree with the other reviewers regarding the toilets/showers and other facilities - brilliant.

We visited this site for just one night on a short break from our home in Glasgow. We found it to be a super site, well maintained and spotless. (Lesley was cleaning the toilets at 11pm so they were clean for the morning - what dedication! And Ralph is constantly emptying the bins and checking the site to make sure its clean and tidy.)

We had a warm welcome onto the site by Lesley and she showed us around to make sure we knew where everything was. Our boys enjoyed using the games room and found a rope swing in the nearby forest too! We had a great pitch with lovely views.

Were very lucky with the weather too! Visited nearby Garlieston and had a lovely walk along the shore to Rigg Bay and through Galloway House Gardens. Its a lovely part of the country and the campsite just made it perfect.

Would have been good if you could buy milk and basic provisions on site but its not far at all by car to the local village. Hope to return in the not too distant future!

Just returned from a 4 day visit to Drumroamin. What a fantastic site!

Great flat pitches with a lot of room. Electric pitches around the perimeter of the field, (non electric in the middle). Small park for the children to play in and a games room with sofas, TV, Pool table to occupy them later on.

Toilets / Kitchen facilities very good. 3 Showers in mens & womans, but rarely was anyone in them.

Great location with Garlistone, Isle of Whithorn, Newton Stewart etc all near by. Good Fish & Chips in Whithorn. No shops within walking distance, so just get supplies when you are out and about.

We visited Culzean Castle (quite a drive up the coast (45 miles), but well worth it for NT members). Also visited Portpatrick, Port Logan (go to the pond!) and Mull of Galloway another day. All great to see and visit.

We were lucky with the weather, but the day before we arrived it had rained all day, but pitches were dry, so drain well.

Site very clean. Bins emptied twice daily.

Definitely go back for longer next time.

We spent 3 nights on this peaceful camp site, perfect for visiting surrounding area. Pitches are superb, lovely view of the hills and sea.

The toilet and shower blocks are the cleanest we have seen in all our touring years (25 years )

there is a room for relaxing to just sit or watch tv, play one of the numerous dvds that are available or choose a book to read.Great camp site and we cant wait to go back.

Flat and well maintained campsite with excellent facilities including very clean toilet and shower block with 2 washing machines (3 to operate), a tumble dryer (50p for 15 minutes), a fridge freezer with ice packs you can use and ice cubes in bags, a washing basket with pegs (there's a washing line outside too) and - most unexpectedly but very welcome - a hair dryer (and power socket in the toilet block next to a mirror).

There is also a sink for washing clothes by hand and 3 sinks for dishes, which come equipped with cloths, sponge scourers and washing up liquid.

Next-door to the shower block is a little room with books and games, a sofa, table and chairs, which you could use to relax in, write postcards, etc. Outside this there is a small play area for children, which has a sandpit and a basketball net.

The whole place is clean, tidy and well organised but it still feels reasonably wild because it's at the end of a mile long rough road (fine for cars driving slowly).

There's not much in the immediate area in terms of shops, etc. But this is part of its charm and what makes it quiet. The nearest village is Kirkinner, which has a pub and a post office shop, and I'm not sure how far it is but perhaps 2 miles from the campsite itself.

There are plenty of things to see and do in the surrounding area including several lovely gardens (Logan Botanic Gardens, Logan Gardens, Ardwell House Gardens and Glenwhan Gardens), the Mull of Galloway lighthouse and RSPB reserve (which also has a good cafe and shop), Sandhead beach (nice tearoom called Woodlea in Sandhead, well-stocked village shop and the excellent Tigh-na-mara restaurant), Portpatrick, Wigtown book town (amazing array of second hand bookshops which makes an excellent way to spend a wet day, and there's a nice cafe called Cafe Rendezvous there, as well as a couple of pubs serving good meals and a couple of other small cafes), Whithorn and Isle of Whithorn (the Steam Packet Inn there is very good for food and also stocks several real ales). There is also the wonderful Galloway Forest Park to explore if you fancy going inland a bit, which includes 3 information places with surprisingly good cafes and many woodland walks.

I've been going to the Galloway area since childhood and I still love it. It's a relatively undiscovered area of Scotland, in terms of tourism, and although it doesn't have the dramatic scenery of the northwest, it does have a very relaxing air about it and I find it a great place to wind down and chill out.

Second time to the area but first time at the camp site.Breathtaking views, such a warm reception on arrival, shown where everything is and everywhere is exceptionally clean,

Leslie and Ralph are always working either cleaning, mowing or emptying bins, very helpful too if you need anything. Nice little playground too if you have little ones.

We spent 15 days here and although we suffered high winds and rain and the toilet block and laundry area was still very clean also the drainage on the site was good.

Will definitely be returning
