Site very quiet. We were very handy for shower block and no one near us at all. The unisex shower cubicles were great but they closed them halfway through our week as not enough people on the park to justify the extra cleaning - which I agreed - it would have been nice if Reception had known why they were suddenly closed with no notices posted. (I had to find out from the cleaner). Bit too isolated for us - quite a drive to 'civilisation'. Also there was a group arrived for the weekend at one of the seasonal pitches and they were still partying well after midnight.

We were recommended this site by a friend and we were not disappointed.

We stayed from the 26th July until the 1st August, mixed weather but that's what camping is about!

The site is very well maintained, regularly cleaned toilets and shower blocks and also nice and big touring pitches with a grass area. Situated overlooking the beach and with 3 ponds on site and various wooded areas its one of the best sites I have visited. Nearest village is Kirkcudbright about 5miles which has all local amenities inc Tesco extra

We were right opposite a small woodland (about 10m2) which if you cut through you come to the toilets and wash area and also the children's play area which had a real tractor which the kids loved.

The entertainment in the clubhouse is great as well as the food and its very well priced for those on a budget. A pint of lager and Malibu and coke was £5. 30, very reasonable.

We will return in the future

Pleasant surprise when we arrived here another site we visited years ago and never thought that much of it but this time we really enjoyed ourselves. Everybody really nice and friendly, site tidy, toilets clean and plenty to do even the pool open a big change to the last site we where on. This site has everything but the weather and we will be back in the summer for that its a bit out the way but all you need is on site all I can say is roll on the summer

Didn't pre-book but just turned up. Huge space available for tents with generous pitch area. Our pitch was sectioned off with wee hedges that gave some privacy. Booked in at reception and was told to choose any pitch I liked. I didn't see a warden again - I knew where they were if I needed them. I was late to leave and even then they didn't chase me off the site! Toilets clean and tidy. Great beach nearby that my dog loved! No signal available for me which was a small issue - you can pay for wifi I think found this out too late! Went to the David Coulthard Museum which was good. Some of the driving left me speechless. Some idiot tried to run me off the road as I wasn't quick enough at a roundabout! Clearly this is nothing to do with the site of course. All in all, a great site but bit of a journey for me to get there! Would still recommend the site though - a good stay!

Just arrived back from first visit to Brighouse Bay can't wait to return. Clean friendly well spaced site. Toilet blocks immaculate and cleaned multiple times per day. Visited swimming pool but did not go in looked great. The children's play area was well used by my grandson aged 4, however it could use a few more pieces of equipment as children of all ages seemed to want to play at the same time. Small beach just minutes away from site entrance perfect for all ages with safe bathing. Plenty of places to visit in area Castle Douglas, Kirkcudbright etc. We will definitely be back next year.

Great site, we (me, hubby and 3 boys (8, 11&12) had a 3 night stay over the English August Bank Holiday weekend. The site was busy enough for the children to many make friends but not overcrowded.

* Generously sized pitches are alongside the roads around the park, with tents, motorhomes and caravans intermingled, some pitches many be a little slopped but we had a great pitch up with electic hook-up from the children's park and second of the toilet blocks.

* Toilets, showers and washing up facilities were all great, extremely clean and never busy, a bonus to have unisex units with shower, toilet and washbasin all together.

* Boys loved the play park, which is centrally located, there lots to do for all aged children including the grown-up ones, their was a separate area for younger children and a green area for general ball games.

* We bought milk and small BBQ in the site shoip which seemed to be stocked for most camping needs.

* Indoor swimming pool lovely £9 for a family of 5 swim - quite with plenty of room to swim and play.

* Food on offer at the clubhouse was lovely and reasonable priced, although they had run out of a couple of items at lunchtime in the Sunday lunchtime and more later on the same evening.

* Recycling signs were on show but no evidence of anywhere to actually place your items (cans, bottles paper etc)

* Great walks near site including a coastal route which we did around the cliffs and husband enjoyed have a variety of different running options to take in the early morning.

* There was lots of activities we didn't even get time to do - entertainment in club house, golf, bowls.

* The nearby beach is great especially when the tide is out the boys had a great time climbing on the rocks and playing on the sand.

* Cream O'Galloway and Cocoa Bean Chocolate Factory are both within a short drive it you need to entertain you children.

Full marks all round from us, we had a great holiday and would go back again without hesitation.
