Reviewer: Dollydaydream15 1 review from this member

Recently returned from a lovely relaxing week here. Shower facilities were great and clean and there was even a free hairdryer to use, which was great as I never thought to pack mine.

No playground on site but there were a few children on site who didn't seem to mind.

Onsite shop was great and I thought prices were very reasonable!

The site is close to lots of beautiful places and we felt we had a good central location.

Pitch sizes were excellent too, plenty of space for our caravan, awning and car and didn't feel like you were close to the next unit like we have at other sites. No hidden or extra charges were great too.

The warden we spoke to was very friendly and helpful showing us places to visit.

Would definitely like to return at some point next summer maybe!

Friendly and helpful owners, stunning location, great for exploring the Forest of Galloway. The Glentrool visitor centre is a short cycle ride away with miles and miles of cycle track for the more proficient rider. It is possible to drive a large motorhome up to Bruces Stone and explore from there. The local pub is an easy 5 minutes walk away giving a warm welcome. The site is immaculately kept, The toilet block is new and the showers are clean with ample hot water. The site is dog friendly with lots of nice walks. We spent 3 nights on the site and used it as a base to explore, would come again.

Having just returned from a 3 night stay here - and I don't usually leave reviews (even though I always rely on them before I book a site!) I felt I must give credit to the ladies who own and run this site. It's not only immaculate - the showers are very modern, clean with plenty of hooks, everything has been well thought out.

The site is very well laid out, lovely big pitches, plenty of signage so no wandering around looking for things! Dog wash, which is another bonus, and a nice little walk around the lovely pond. The shop is well stocked, and there's a good pub (dog friendly) just up the road, great food.

Fran and Jen couldn't be more helpful, and informative particularly of the many walks there are to do, and what we might see - we were extremely lucky to see a pine marten! They even lent me some of their animal antiseptic after my dog 'gained' a tick out walking.

Can't praise them enough, can't wait to go back and spend longer there next time.

Reviewer: Wheeler99 5 reviews from this member

Wow! All the other reviews are spot on. Absolutely lovely ladies clearly passionate about their campsite.

Great facilities for tents with a bothy hut and another being built as we left. New toilet block with perfectly hot showers.

Clearly the ladies are investing for the future with newly planted willow between pitches and nice flag iris and hoster plantings in the meadow marsh.

Perfectly situated for exploring the glen and the westerly forest and rather handy for the great pub down the road ( house o' hill ) which I am now rating on trip advisor. What a weekend!

Would we return? At a flash.

Wishing them all the success they deserve.

Reviewer: Fiona Grierson 1 review from this member

After reading the reviews we chose to visit this campsite. I cannot emphasis just how lovely it is. The new owners are very friendly and helpful, happy to chat or give advice. The facilities are great. There are two showers in the ladies and two in the gents. The showers and toilets are modern and very clean with lots of hot water. We were in a campervan so on hard standing. The pitch was very generous and felt private. There is a short dog walk around the pond which is great for first thing in the morning or the last walk at night. The House on the Hill is nearby, dog friendly and great food. This place is a gem, and I want to keep it to myself, but it is only fair to share. Hope you love is as much as we did.

We don't usually leave reviews unless the site is spectacularly good or bad, in this case we can only say this is one of the nicest sites we've stayed on. The owners seem to spend all days busy around the site which is very clean and tidy. The showers and toilets were spotless and there is information and help on hand if required. There is a lovely pond where we saw newts on a couple of occasions. We don't normally spend much time on site generally out walking or cycling but this is such a relaxing place. We initially booked in for a couple of nights but after a few days down the coast came back for another two. Nice quiet roads for cycling and lots of walking opportunities. The pub 5 minutes walk down the road is good for food and drink but they were having staffing problems in the kitchen so perhaps best to book if you want to eat there.
