Fantastic little site ideal for some peace and quiet but not too far from Dumfries and other areas for sight sightseeing. We were just there for a a weekend break and wanted to relax. Facilities well maintained, hot shower included in the price. The owners were really cheery and provided us with maps of lovely walks from the site.

(We managed to get a TV reception and 3g on the Three network)

Can't wait to get back!

Excellent little site in a beautiful location. Owners were away on a celebration trip but a caravan resident Tom welcomed us and showed us around. Previous reviews which we read before we booked really say it all. We were only staying for one night but we would like to come back and stay longer.

The narrow roads leading to the site were very quiet in both directions and present no difficulties.

It is a gem.

We picked this site after reading the good reviews on here, for our first overnight in our new (to us) little Romahome, we wanted to check the hookup etc whilst not being too far from home.

We arrived late afternoon without booking (I would book if going again, as the gentleman managing the site told you it sometimes got quite busy at weekends) On this occasion there was only one other campervan on site.

The site consists of a small field with EHU points around the perimeter, and we were told to camp wherever we fancied and were given a short tour of the facilities. We picked a nice spot next to a red squirrel feeding box. The fees were 12 for the camper and 3. 50 for the EHU.

The site has one toilet, and one shower, both clean and well maintained. Also a large barn with cooking, washing-up facilities, a washing machine, and some seating.

The site is in a lovely spot, well-sheltered and just next to a quiet country lane, along which cars went past infrequently.

It was a very clear night and the sky was just spectacular, we saw plenty of shooting stars and sat out watching the universe go by in a lovely peaceful location. During the day, we also saw some of the local red squirrels feeding at the boxes on site. Lovely!

We would definitely return to this site, it was in a lovely location, the site 'manager' was welcoming and helpful (offered to look for some WD40 when we were struggling with the legs on the van!), and it was just so peaceful, felt like we'd had a week away after just one night in this idyllic setting.

I have been here twice now and this is a gem of a site. The owners are very friendly and make you feel welcome.

The site is small and has one toilet and one shower, so if it is busy you need to go early. There is a barn which is equipped with a kettle, microwave, double burner cooker and a washing machine. The site is kept spotlessly clean.

To get here you need to travel along narrow country lanes so caravanners need to be careful. The local shop and hotel is 2. 5miles away. There is a restaurant in the hotel which serves good food at a reasonable price.

Red Squirrels frequent the site and if you are up early in the morning you can see them feeding from two food hoppers.

Looking forward to coming back here.

Used this small site en route from Ardrossan ferry.

An ideal stopover a few miles from Auldgirth.

The owner was very friendly and chatty. He promised us red squirrels and delivered! - our pitch was between 2 feeding boxes and we enjoyed our squirrel watch waking 6 am to catch them feeding at the boxes - a real treat!

Grass pitches with electric hookup -just another campervan and a tent pitched whilst we stayed so plenty of room between us.

Basic toilet and shower facilities but very clean.

Did not see/use the other facilities as previously described in other reviews.

Would use this site again

A quiet adult only site - tractors from a neighbouring farm could be heard along the near road but did not cause problem to us.

Just returned from a weekend camping at this idyllic site. If you are hoping to get away from it all then this site is very peaceful. The owners are wonderful hosts and are very attentive to their visitors. Only one toilet and shower which wasn't an issue when we stayed as site was very quite but could be an issue at busy times. Campers well catered for with barn like building equipped with fridge, freezer, 2 ring hob, microwave, kettle, toaster and washing machine. Also table and chairs if weather is wet. We had a fabulous time and would definitely recommend this lovely little site.
