We loved this site, it is stuck out on a limb miles from anywhere but that is part of the appeal. The nearest town is Stranraer about 15 miles away and that is a bit of a dump to be honest although there is decent shopping - and you will have to go there to fill up with petrol, we couldn't find another garage anywhere on the peninsula!

The site is divided into several pitching areas by dense gorse bush thickets, and it's alive with rabbits so watch your step and your dogs. Just over some dunes is a lovely crescent-shaped sandy beach great for paddling and exercising the dogs. Toilet blocks are freshly updated by the looks, and spotlessly clean of course as CC sites always are.

The Rhins of Galloway has some nice little villages but it is a backwater, it's mainly farming country, nothing in the way of lochs and mountains. Visit Logan Botanic Garden if that's your thing, also Portpatrick is a pretty little seaside village a short drive from the site. If you want to chill out and just relax in rural Scotland this site is ideal.

What a fabulous site. Our first, but not last visit, to this amazing place. It truly is doggy heaven with wonderful walks both on the shore and along the coastline. Managed to pick enough blackberries on one walk to make half pound of jam back in motorhome! Will be back definitely, but will make sure we have enough provisions (wine!) as nearest supermarket is about 15 miles away. Lovely helpful staff and a clean and well managed site.

We rang to ask if any space and were told of course we have come on over! We arrived and within minutes were checked in and on a pitch.

Most things about this site and been well said before, its location is incredible, the facilities are kept immaculate and the views are, in our opinion, second to none. We couldn't get on the front row this time so opted for the next tier and found the views to be even better.

A trip to the lighthouse is well worth the effort, great exhibition, a climb up the lighthouse and then coffee and cakes in the fabulous cafe.

Stranraer isn't too far away for essentials but the village of Drummore is much closer and has a village stores, post office and hotel / pub.

Not sure that, for us, site get much better than this one.

Wow what a superb location ! This site really ticked all the boxes for us ! It's located right on the beach at New England Bay (we managed to get a sea side pitch too) the site is very large (in size) with lots of secluded areas with well spread out pitches. 2 facilities blocks which were immaculate 1 had disabled, mother & toddler and a laundry. It has a small kids play area and an indoor games room with pool table etc. The wardens were very friendly and the site itself very peaceful (apart from the odd Oyster catcher) the site has some of the best views we had but is quite remote (about 4 miles to the nearest village ! ) We will definitely return as it's a must location when touring this lovely part of Southern Scotland and one of the cheapest Caravan club sites we've stay on !

We have visited this site many times over the last few years and have never been disappointed. It is great for our children who meet old and new friends each time. The site is meticulously clean and very well kept. It is a large site but doesn't feel like it due to the landscaping. Unfortunately our last visit was tainted slightly by the dreaded midge. We have not had that problem before and was due apparently by a mild winter. We have enjoyed good fishing for mackerel from our dinghy and from the shore at terally bay. Decent pub food can be had at the Clashwannon caravan site on the way to Drummore. Don't bother going all the way there though it is a rather depressing village stuck in a battle with a remote harbour owner.

Fantastic site. We visit at least once a year, and this is one of the best for beach access for the dogs. The Mull of Galloway lighthouse, café/visitor centre and RSPB centre are all well worth the visit. The site itself is clean, tidy and in early October very quiet. My wife, being disabled, likes the disabled facilities and we were able to pitch quite close to the block. If I had to find fault the dog bins were all near the beach so it required a bit of a walk down there to get rid of the offending bags, but on this site it's a very pleasant walk.
