First impressions were good. Shops to the left and nice pitch and put to the right. Near a nice pond. Straight in front was a old war plane. Great site for golfers.

We paid etc for a full service pitch. But

A little disappointed with the pitch. The wall round our tap had semi collapsed. The distance from tap to our pump on side of caravan was over 6 meters. So we ended up buying etc hose pipe. No drainage holes for dirty water outlet on our unit. Like on most full service pitches.

The site had nice clean toilet blocks and children area was good. Walks around site could do with better signage.

Swimming pool was great and bar area good. Meal we had was good but a little over priced.

Staff very friendly especially the bar staff.

This is a lovely area to explore, we liked cream of Galloway, cocoa bean factory and all the forest areas (7 stanes)

Overall happy with the site.

But could do with a little up grading in places and tidying up. Signage up grading and paths more clear. A lot of unsightly water pipes lying around on some of the walks. No attempt to hide them. The riding school was similar to a scrap yard. The fishing pond could do with more stock information. Sounds bad but simply fixes needed.

Just spent 3 nights here. Overall we had a superb time and will be going back next year.

We pitched fairly close to the toilet block on the way in. We had EHU, the pitch was flat and we had plenty of room for our tent and tarp. We were pitched alongside both tents and caravans. Plenty of space between the pitches did not feel crowded at all.

Toilet block. Was clean and tidy during our stay. With youngish kids the en-suite section was ideal for us. Plenty of hot water in the showers morning and night. Covered area for pot washing etc. Quiet time after midnight, being honest we didn't hear any noise after 11pm and what little there was before that was not excessive.

Shop was well stocked. Golf on site, pony trekking, duck ponds and best of all you are less than 600 yards away from the beach, they also have a launch area for boats/jet skis. There is a large play area for the kids.

The local area is well worth a visit, Kirkudbright and Loch Ken within easy reach.

Can't say enough really, the weather helped, and although it was windy there is plenty of shelter on the site.

We chose this site because of its proximity to the beach of Brighouse Bay and we wanted to explore on cycles the country lanes around Borgue etc.

The touring site is good with plenty of space but not much screening between pitches.

Washrooms etc are very good and very well maintained. There is a good shop on site where you can get most supplies.

They advertise a swimming pool which turns out to be a public swimming pool in a clubhouse which serves the golf course. All a bit commercial and busy. The games room was not what we expected as it is more of an amusement arcade.

They also have a slipway for boat launching which is a great facility.

WOW ! what a site. We have just got back after a very nice winters break, stayed on pitch G28 with our caravan and full awning, for there mini winter season, November 1st to March 26th 5 MONTHS and only 425. Best value ever. What a beautiful site with outstanding views of the area and the isle of man.

Now to the site facilities. Well over the winter months we have watched it being maintained and a complete overhaul by the staff and contractors. The ponds dredged, the trees and hedges pruned, the swimming pool emptied grouted & painted. Games room painted and all new machines. The shop was being restocked as we left. The shower/washing block has always been clean.

All in all we have a very good time and would like to thank the owners and workers for making our winter go too quickly. 100% happy. We will return

Just returned from a night's stay over the Easter break. On the whole the site is large and the grounds are kept very clean, the golf facilities are excellent. The site is let down, by having dirty facilities, especially the toilet block nearest the reception, they were very dirty, and for the amount of caravans / tents / motorhomes using these facilities they should be cleaned more then once a day.

The site also has some issues with its seasonal caravans, and it is very off putting driving onto your pitch and to drive past a broken down awning on a seasonal pitch, and then almost immediately come across another seasonal caravan with a badly fitted awning, whose roof is almost as green as the grass. Not really a good first impression on driving to your pitch.

We have been visiting it for years and now it has got even better with all the work that is being carried out by the new owner. We can't wait to return here again well worth our 350 mile journey. Good clean shower blocks /good gravel and grass pitch / nice beach /very nice large playground / everyone helpful / beautiful views what more can one ask
