What's not to like? Fantastic views of one of the prettiest parts of Galloway, glorious sunsets, dark skies, totally quiet (apart from owls, and the geese flying overhead at night). Friendly & helpful manager. Refurbished toilet block, smelling of fresh paint, always clean, with a free hair dryer but only one (albeit free, powerful & hot) shower in the Ladies - one less toilet and one more shower might be preferable; however, there's a shower in the huge disabled (or family) room and one undesignated shower outside the Gents that can presumably be used if the Ladies one is occupied. Free Wi-Fi in the Information room. Secure bike storage. All grass pitches. The statics are widely spaced and don't intrude. Track then path down to the rocky pebbly shore, where you join the Coastal Path along the Firth - turn right to go back back to Rockcliffe then on to Kippford, turn left to walk to the fort and on Portling and the glorious beach at Sandyhills. Can't recommend swimming - the Solway tides are like those at Morecambe Bay, very very fast indeed and some sands are risky; but if you have the tide table, you can walk out to Rough Island from the Kippford path on a causeway.

A very minor niggle, that won't stop us returning - no MH grey water dump. Access road is single track and a bit rutted.

This site has stunning views over the Galloway coast - we had three glorious days of sunshine, the sunrises/sets were magnificent from our camper

The pitches are fairly level with a bit of tweaking, the showers toilets and pot wash facs, immaculate with the wardens friendly and helpful

Great for walks and dogs the beach and coastline path is two mins away - we got the bus from Rockliffe (10 mins walk) to Sandyhills and walked the coastal path back to the site - beautiful

There's a local Spar which stocks all you need about 10 mins cycle away

All in all a great site worth a visit

Friendly warden, thankfully we got a sea view although this seemed a lot more windier than some of the others, be aware. Thought we'de made a huge mistake coming here - as we were pitching the tent the young family beside us seemed hyper and were shouting and screaming, expecting a very noisy night it came as a pleasant surprise to find the whole site was very quite by 9pm even though it was very busy. There are 2 ladies toilets in the toilet block in the tent area and one of these is also the disabled, these toilets are signposted for gents or ladies although gents have their own toilets too, children and some men too lazy to walk a few feet to the gents were using these which meant there always seemed a queue for the ladies especially last thing at night. Apparently there are plans to upgrade theses facilities. Tennis table in one of the barns was good. Nice, will be back especially if toilets upgrade

I can not fault this wonderful site, we were in the tent field with ehu, the views are great, the sunsets and sunrise's were a joy.

Such a friendly site, prices are very reasonable, toilets & showers were always spotless.

A secure undercover lock up for pushbikes was very usfull.

The coastal path is lovely to get to the beach although being on the estury it is a little silty but swimming at castle point is great. Dalbeattie forest is accessed easily from the café at colvend very usfull for mountain bikers.

Will definitely return to this gem of a site.

We spent 3 nights on this charming site. The site is effectively split in 2 with a separate area for tents from the static and caravans. Friendly welcome, we were told to take our choice of tent pitches. The camping fields seem well drained, with half on a slight slope with beautiful views over the sea, the other half level, but without the views. The camping fields have their own showers, toilets and washing facilities which were of a very high standard and spotless. Not a lot of them, but we never had to queue. There was wi-fi available just outside the washing facilities too, though the signal did not carry far. A couple of areas were set aside for kids with football goals and there were lovely walks along the coastal paths. We will definitely be returning.

Great site wardens cheerful and really helpful. Toilets and showers always immaculate great base for walking and cycling. Nice bay in rockcliffe and good beach closeby in sandhill. The prices were reasonable and close to dalbeatie for shops/provisions where the culinary delight was pizza from the chippy. Will definitely return. Play facilities for kids could bemore comprehensive however this not a consideration for many.
