Just spent a week at this delightful site. It is in a lovely area, very peaceful with wonderful views, and with possibly the largest pitches ever on the flattest, most well drained field ever.
The owner, is always busy, don't think she sits down, except on the quad, when she is emptying the bins. She is always willing to stop for a chat and will happily recommend local eateries or places to visit.
The ablutions block is spotless with unlimited hot water. The showers are HUGE, probably the biggest cubicles on any site we've visited. The showers are push button and hot (possibly a little too hot, disadvantage of push buttons). There are three showers, four toilets and four open sinks in both mens and ladies, no privacy cubicles. There is also a disabled/family washroom.
The dishwashing area and laundry are in the same block, with three dishwashing sinks complete with washing up liquid and dishcloths. There are two washing machines, a tumble dryer, iron and ironing board and a sink for hand washing clothes. Outside is a rotary dryer. There are also two hairdryers available. Never had to queue for any of the facilities.
There is a small play area on site, but can't comment as we didn't have any children with us.
There is a lot to do in the surrounding area (we didn't do half of what we wanted). Plenty of gardens to visit and some very lovely villages, all those we visited had FREE parking. The Mull of Galloway is an RSPB reserve, with a lovely café/shop and you can see Ireland and the Isle of Man.
A must do/see is the Galloway Kite Trail and the kite feeding station, what a spectacular site, seeing over 70 red kites flying around. They are fed at 2pm every day and the farm where the feeding station is, sells hot and cold drinks, crisps and cakes.
For a meal out, try The Bladnoch Inn, about 2 1/2 miles away from the site. The food is delicious, reasonably priced, with plenty on the plate.
All things considered, a wonderful site, excellent value for money, highly recommended.
Lovely site and very friendly owners. All pitches are on grass which was well cut and short. Plenty of Electric Hookups available. Picnic benches were scattered around the site and were a useful facility for eating outside on a very warm weekend. Toilet facilities are faultless. Plenty for kids to do in the various play area/rooms but they were far enough away to enjoy themselves without disturbing anyone wanting a quiet weekend.
No midges to be seen but the cleggs (horseflies) were vicious a short distance from the site. Thankfully there were none ON the site. Take Deet to keep them at bay if you intend to walk to nearby Wigtown along nice quiet paths and tracks.
We spent 4 nights at Drumroamin Farm and have to concur with all of the positive reviews below.
The owner puts on a very good show. She was there to greet us, and always available for a friendly chat when we needed information or whatever. The location was lovely and peaceful, and a good night's sleep was guaranteed. The pricing structure was deviously fair, and the facilities were immaculate.
Although sparsely populated, the surrounding area provided plenty to see, so long as you were prepared to look for it. In addition to the local towns, we spent a day exploring the Whithorn peninsula, or The Machars as it's known and there is quite a lot of history to be discovered.
Another day was lost touring The Rhinns, including the Mull of Galloway. A visit to the nearby Bladnoch distillery also proved interesting. There are lots of prehistoric and early Christian remains in the area. We particularly loved the Cairn Holy Chambered Cairns, which were located south east of Creetown off the A75.
The low population density means that that food outlets are relatively few a far between, but we found a couple of takeaways in Newton Stewart, along with a Sainsburys supermarket and an Aldi.
Nearer by, the was a small grocers in Kirkinner and a co-op in Wigtown.
There is a pleasant walk from the site that leads to the foreshore where there is a bird sanctuary. Lesley informed us that it was also possible to walk into Wigtown, but we never found the time to discover that route.
Stayed here for extended Easter weekend. Two adults, one tired and hose leaking camper and two border terriers.
The camp site is exceptional. Clean, tidy and owners cheerful and helpful.
Showers and basins include hot water and clean. WC's clean at all times.
Washroom also very clean and tidy and included dish washing liquid and cloths etc and drier ideal for 15 minutes just to get towels dry, saves hanging on a line.
Lounge was a nice comfy room. To be honest I would get rid of TV but that's just me :-). And plenty of books and leaflets.
The area is a great place, from Thursday to Monday we went out one day in camper, all the other days we just walked from the site and relaxed just taking in the views. We saw thousands of migrating geese and some deer. RSPB reserve not far and it's a pleasant walk via the lanes into Wigtown, about 4-5 miles (?) each way with nice pub and distillery for a wee dram to fortify you along the route :-))
If we return to the area (we are trying to see as much of UK as possible) then this is first place we will call.
I am guessing 10 out of 10 for children but this is based on children enjoying getting out and about and messing about in the wild.
We have just returned from Drumroamin Campsite for an Easter break with our touring caravan. First of all the pitches are the largest we have ever seen and there was ample room for our porch awning and car. The site is very well maintained and the shower block/toilets are spotless.
The TV reception was faultless and we had no problems during our stay. The games room with tv is an added bonus and our children enjoyed spending time in there. They also enjoyed using the playpark and they played there safely each evening. We also used the laundry facilities which is great for anyone with kids! Drumroamin also have 2 static vans for rent, we had a look round these and would consider coming back to use these with family.
The site was very peaceful and we enjoyed our relaxing break. We only wish it was closer to our home so that we could visit more regularly! We would definitely recommend this site 100% and are looking forward to coming back sometime. The owner is extremely welcoming and helpful - thanks for the Easter eggs!
