Stayed here with 2 friends for a wee birthday break and had a great time. The prices are very reasonable and the owners are very nice and friendly - not intrusive and will just let you get on with your break. The site is in a great location for touring and/or for staying on site and walking or just enjoying the peace and quiet. We were directed to our site area and give the option to pitch wherever we liked. Pitches as quite flat and well looked after. There's and old steel wheel as a fire pit (excellent) and a picnic bench too! The toilet and shower facilities were always really warm and clean which is a real bonus. Free showers. We had great weather but would have used the hut kitchen if needed - lots of utensils etc free to use. We didn't buy any of the products on sale except firewood (which was easy to burn and gave off a great heat) but we will be back and we are looking forward to trying some of the fresh eggs and vegetables. At night the gate to the site is closed which made it feel very secure. There's plenty room for lots of tents and caravans and wigwams. You won't feel squashed in to a tight pitch. Highly recommended - and I camp all over Scotland. Already planning our next visit!

I doubt if we've ever been on a site that beats this one for value for money, friendliness, and location. The owners have a dedication to providing the experience of being on a working farm, while making you feel welcome. For touring units there is an area with hook ups, looking out over the lovely Soleway Firth; each pitch is spaced well apart with a picnic table and bbq (wood available on site). The camping area is below and seemed equally well laid out. There are sufficient showers and washing up facilities, all kept clean and well appointed.

There is a handy leaflet available for local walks. We also set off to walk to Kirdubright (a nice town); half along a lovely forest walk (from the old cemetery) to a picnic area, but the rest (not so nice) along the road. While we were staying we also got to see the birds of prey that a friendly chap was keeping on site. So yes, 10 out of 10 for us, and we want to come back.

This is our second visit here, and absolutely love it! Site is in a rural location but close enough to the local town.

Facilities on site are perfect and immaculate. There is ample space between tents with enough space to ensure privacy. A lovely touch are the fire pits, which a fab at night time. Park style benches are also provided to each unit.

All units are well spaced, and there is no overcrowding at all on this site.

Kids love the park and swinging from the tree rope.

Facilities immaculate to say the least. Shower and laundry block perfect for needs. Only gripe is lack of loo roll in ladies!

However we shall be back, as this is a little gem of a site and perfect for those with families.

If only all sites were as good as this, the view over the Solway is really something with the fishing boats and yachts going in and out. The facilities are top notch and always spotless, the pitches are roomy with a barbecue on each pitch even on the tent pitches which are well separated there is also a cook house with seating and cooking facilities plus pots and pans there is a play area for the kids and a private beach I think they have thought of everything on this site.

There is plenty to do and see in the surrounding area with a good fish and chip shop two chinese takeaways plus two sandwich bars.

This is our second time here and we will Certainly be back.

Just spent 10 days on this wonderful site. On arrival we were shown to our pitch which was huge! All the pitches were very spacious, with tents in 2 areas. We were in the area next to the children's playground, which my 3 loved. The whole site was clean and well maintained; the grass was kept short, the toilets and showers were clean and modern. My eldest daughter wasn't too pleased with the push button showers which she found a bit annoying.

There were 2 dish washing areas, with tables for dining, and one had a freezer which came in handy for our ice blocks, given the wonderful hot weather we had. The site was popular with families, with the children able to run about and play safely, and though busy, it was always quiet after 11 pm.

We enjoyed the walk down through the fields to the sea, and even managed to swim although the water was a little chilly!

The area is full of things to do; we were able to keep our 3 children, aged 11, 9 and 5, occupied every day. There are beautiful beaches, a great chocolate factory, farm parks and a nice cream factory, plus great walks and bike rides in the Galloway forest park. We have one child who needs a gluten free diet and we were able to find plenty of places to eat that catered for her.

All in all, a great holiday at a beautiful welcoming site in a brilliant area of the country.

The setting of this site is truly beautiful. It has views of the tidal inlet, without being overly exposed. The drive down to it is also lovely and the narrow last lap was trouble free with our small caravan.

I liked the fact that various types of campers were catered for. I had a peep in the cookhouse and was amazed at thoughtfulness that had gone into the provision of cooking and pot washing gear. Similarly the washroom and shower has all you need and was well cared for. It was not under pressure when there was an influx on Brownies at the weekend. It was good to see a dedicated dog walk where Tilly could be let off her lead. The grass was rather long so wellies are needed. Brighouse Bay was the best of the three local beaches but was a bit far to walk. We had a lovely 6 nights and the only sad part was listening to the heart - wrenching bleating of one particular lamb when its mother had been taken away for shearing. The sheep did safely graze the next day however when lambs and dams were reunited. My map shows a military area across the water. As our dog is terrified of gun fire I was a little worried But we heard none.

Kirkcudbright is a delightful little town with fishing boats a castle and the glorious garden of Broughton House. This is also an art gallery, there are quite a few in the town. All in all a lovely site in a glorious part of Scotland
