We have had many visits here as a family over the last few years and love coming back. Its a big site if you want it to be, and a smaller one too it all depends what you're looking for. The statics are in a separate area to the tourers and some pods have been installed too. We've always found it family friendly and our young kids love the freedom of cycling about exploring the woods and the playpark. The pitches are well spaced out (unless you choose the grass ones which you share with tents) the fully serviced pitches are best and cost a minimal amount more than standard. Toilets/showers are fine too but the ones up at the play park are best. We don't use the Clubhouse other than for the occasional swim, so can't comment on that. The shop is well stocked and reasonably priced with fresh rolls daily. There is loads to do nearby with beautiful Kirkcudbright a short drive away, Castle Douglas a little further and endless other gems. Ok so there is no mobile signal, but to us that's a great thing. You can really switch off. Staff are always pleasant and accommodating and I would not hesitate in recommending this site to anyone. Only thing missing? A mobile fish and chip van!

Visited what used to be a lovely 5 star site, having been a regular when my kids were growing up. Very disappointed. Touring pitches crammed together with little room when they used to offer space. In fact area around pitches 18y onwards looked like a car park. Pitches gravel with little grass surround- very poor condition- lots of mud, little grass! At his park used to be famed for its plush surrounding and grounds- sadly not now. Clearly obvious that policy has turned to quantity over quality. Toilets and showers fine, but unchanged in 10 years. Park now has hundreds of statics, cabins etc all seeming to bring in the pounds over the quality of experience. Park area extremely noisy, even though we were parked well away from the area. A pitches sodden and muddy with little grass next to had standing-despite little ran. Shop ran out of bread by lunchtime and little in the way of supplies at all. No wifi, despite offering to charge you 17 a week! no phone signal. Pay phone at reception out of order- sign saying use payphone at club. Payphone at club also out or order! not really good enough for a 'premier'park. Shame on you Gillespie leisure. Quality should count and its quit clear that is no longer the case! Very saddened by visit and sadly what I can not evidence is a sadly neglected former fantastic park. I had recommended this park to numerous families through the years, but no longer.

We would normally stay at another park in Kirkcudbright but as it was full we decided to stay at Brighouse Bay. Although it was a lovely big park, it was too big for us. We prefer smaller parks. A few issues were that there was no mobile phone coverage. The toilets/showers were unisex which did not appeal to us at all. We decided to use the swimming pool on the morning after arrival and once in the pool realised that there was what looked like a greasy layer on the top of the swimming pool. It really looked like it needed a good clean out. Don;t think we would go back to this particular park. There was a path that took you to the beach but unfortunately when you got to the end of the path, it was just too rocky. We had our dogs with us and was quite disappointed to find this.

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
