If you want glossy and sophisticated you are in the wrong place! If you want a peaceful hideaway with easy access to the main roads through Dumfries and Galloway this is it. This wee site has everything you need;- loo, shower, dish washing sink, chemical disposal. It is easy to find because the fishery and pro paintball are well sign posted but a word of warning;- if approaching from the west (or leaving for a destination to the west) your sat nav may try to put you down a road that is impassable due to flooding. Take the road signposted Newbie and you cant go wrong.

I think this area was used as part of an ordinance factory producing propellant for shells during WWII There is an interesting local museum with information about 'The Devils Porridge' as it is called. The area around the campsite has a number of very overgrown semi subterranean buildings which are a fascinating relic of this and a network of rough tracks which the dog appreciated as dog walks.

It is a working farm and fishery so there are the usual bits and bobs of these businesses around, some count them as untidy;-I reckon they add to the charm!

We stopped off for one night on the way home, no booking but they had 1 spare pitch (5 C&CC CS). Although its on grass it very firm with some hardcore. All pitches had ehu, there is a drinking water tap a the far end of the pitches. Not sure where grey water dump was as we didn't use.

There is one shower, one loo and a chem disp nearer the house. No wifi on site. The cafe mentioned by previous reviews was closed and doesn't appear to have been open for some time.

The owners were welcoming and friendly, told us about the site, and said we were welcome to walk around the fishing lakes once the fisherman had left around 4. 30 pm. We walked along the beach to Powfoot, about 20 minutes. The hotel in the village does great coffee and cake - many people were eating what looked like very good Sunday lunches, its worth a visit.

We paid 15 for 1 night, 2 adults and ehu on this site. A really good CS that is very quiet and peaceful yet 10 minutes drive to Annan where there is a big Tesco and plenty of shops.

Found this gem of a campsite by chance as never fancied the fishing side but wanted to camp. Have been twice now and it's a lovely tranquil place, feels like wild camping as campsite is huge so you really do feel like your getting away from it all here and have your own space not crammed in. Owners carol and John absolutely lovely and can't do enough for you. Toilets and shower spotless. Gorgeous walk down to beach. Little cafe on site that does the job for wee rolls and cuppa etc. Just a cracking all round bit of peace and quiet.

A site we have visited a few times. Great for bird watching, animal(deer)watching. If you like course fishing, this is the place to be. On the downside, when it rains the pitches flood, little or no drainage. On our last visit, we had an inch of water in the awning.

We stayed here two separate nights, on the way to Stranraer, and again on our way back, - What a fabulous site. - Wildlife galore, plenty of runs for the dog. - Extremely friendly and helpful owners. - Simple but clean facilities. - Everything we could wish for!

Reviewer: Sue-and-Dave 5 reviews from this member

Stayed for 3 nights so Dave could fish and I could walk and relax with the dog. It was great for this. Dave had 2 and a half days fishing and got great advice from the owner and other locals to help him get to the bigger fish.

I had great walks around the fishery and at the beach with our dog. Owners have 3 lovely dogs and so are very dog friendly.

Campsite is simple but fully met our needs. Quiet and peaceful with good facilities (toilets, shower, washing up, disposal). Yes, it's an old MOD site but it simply added interest. Surrounded by history.

Finally, Carole could not have been more friendly. She was always doing some chore or other but was always willing to help or just have a chat.

A great place.
