Stayed at this lovely site for 5 nights with my girlfriend and 2 dogs.

Owners were very friendly and gave good advice on local areas to visit, eating places, walks etc

Campsite is very well kept, plots are secluded and very peaceful, toilets and showers were spotless

Come home feeling relaxed with 2 very tired dogs!

We are just on our way home after 7-wonderful nights at North Rhinns. I can only echo the previous reviews. Excellent pitches, reliable EHU, free hot shower (walk in wet room), 2-loos with washbasins. Lashings of hot water in loos and pot - wash. All facilities in a clean and modern building. Friendly hosts who will offer advice on where to go and what to do. Fire pits on most pitches and the owners provide big bags of logs with kindling and firefighters at £5 per bag. Very little road noise and we were on pitch number 2 next to the gate. Lulled to sleep at night by the birds, wood pigeons, sheep and lambs, cows and calves, and the resident barn-owl. 5-minute drive to the shop in Leswalt that is like an aladdins cave and manned by two lovely ladies. Can recommend the packs of Gypsy Cream biscuits that are made locally. 10-minute drive to Stranraer, a lovely little town with an eclectic mix of shops.

One of my favourite campsites in one of my favourite areas. The site is small (10 pitches total) which for me is a bonus. Well sheltered from the wind, nicely planted with trees and shrubs. The pitches are generously sized, well spaced and private. This doesn't stop you from meeting link minded folk though.

Your hosts, Kath and Richard have gone to great lengths to ensure every need is catered for. The wash room and toilets are kept spotlessly clean. Even though there is only one shower I never needed to queue. Hot and powerful enough. The wash area is indoors and usually has a good supply of cloths, sponges and washing up liquid. There is a covered cooking area for bad weather.

Most pitches have a dedicated fire pit and logs / fire lighting kits are available at £6 for a large bag. Our bag kept us going for 2 nights.

Kath and Richard are both lovely people, they make the site a joy to stay at.

We have stayed twice with the first time being colder and windier and the second bright and sunny, both times we found the site comfortable, the perfect base for exploring the Rhinns.

If you're a walker or have a sense of adventure you'll find plenty to do outside in the local area. Lots of hidden beaches and coves, the lighthouse at The Mull of Galloway is a good visit, great to climb. Stranraer is close by for shops etc and Portpatrick is worth a visit for the walks and pubs / eateries.

My kids 12, 8 and 6 enjoyed both visits and were lucky to find friends on both occasions.

We'll definitely return.

Just back from a 3 night stay at this site. If you are looking for quiet, relaxing place this fits the bill. Site owners could not have been more helpful, facilities were immaculately clean and tidy with plenty of information on the local area. Pitches are well spaced with option of a campfire at designated points on pitches.

Would definitely go back.

This is truly a little gem of a site and I will certainly return if in the area again. The site owners are campers themselves and this clearly shows in all the little details such as the towels, soap, etc provided in the washrooms, the water bowl and tie up lead for your dog outside the building and many other things that not all campsites think to provide. It was all very clean and everything worked as it should. There are two large rooms with toilets and washbasins and one large wetroom with free hot shower, all wheelchair accessible. Washing up sinks with teatowels and liquid. Fridge/freezer for campers use. Book exchange and folders with details of local attractions, restaurants, walks, places to visit. Price was a very reasonable £9 per person and £2 for EHU, per night, and they didn't charge for the dog - who enjoyed his walks around the edge of the site on the designated dogwalk. The owners were very welcoming and helpful with advice on good walks etc. The site is well situated for exploring all the peninsular. There are three pitches with hardstandings for campervans and all pitches are sheltered. N. B. Caravans are not accepted and there isn't room for large motorhomes either.

Arrived to the site and received a very warm welcome and made us feel at home. Facilities very clean and spacious. Perhaps could do with an extra shower as I would imagine when it is busy there would be a queue. The site itself is a little gem for peace and quiet and the pitches are well apart. Stranraer not too far away to get all you’re shopping and there is convenience store is Leswalt. Plenty of places to visit in the area but the Mull of Galloway and the Galloway Forest are a must. Would back to the site if we were to visit the area again and thanks to Rob and Kathy for their hospitality and their help especially when the weather got bad.
