Date of Visit: May 2006 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Greystokead 2 reviews from this member

 Visited during the last week in May with two other families. The weather was glorious. The site was busy yet quiet. We were probably the noisy ones once the kids had gone to bed and the guitars came out.

Facilities excellent. Wonderful showers. No shop on site but there is a good market shop just over one mile away.

A short walk to the beach and if you hit the tides right, some glorious sand. Two evenings during the week we gathered drift wood and lit camp fires. Even gathered some nice mussels to cook on the bbq.

A nice easy cycle to Rockliffe and Kipford even for the little ones. Dalbeattie forest for the serious pedalers

All in all a wonderful few days on a small but smart and friendly site.

we will return. 

Date of Visit: August 2005 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Tim and Cary 60 reviews from this member

 The site is a large field, partly sloping. There are lovely views, across the adjacent field,over Rockcliffe Bay and Rough Island from parts of the site. There are electrical hookups. Tents are sited at the front of the field and have good views. After leaving the "main" Colvend-Rockliffe road there are no further signs to the campsite - just keep straight ahead along the single-track road which and climbs quite steeply for the last part.

It has one clean and adequate toilet block but this could be busy at peak times. The water and CDP are at the toilet block which is quite a walk from some parts of the site and a laundry block, not used. There is an information room with a wide selection of magazines, books and tourist info. There was no playground. There is no playground but children tended to play ball games on an empty area of the field.

There are quite a lot of statics and seasonal pitch caravans. When we visited the site was full and The touring and seasaonal caravans were pitched close together in rows. Pitch views depend on who was in front of you!! Many of the best spots were occupied by seasonals.

There is direct access to a coastal walk from the site. Popular with Max our collie. In an easterly direction this leads to the Castle Point, 10 minutes walk, site of an ancient hill fort. Castle Point has wonderful sea views across the Solway to Cumbria. The path can be continued further east along the coast. In the westerly direction it descends to a very very rocky shore, about 10 minutes downhill walk (strong shoes recommended) The coastal path continues west to a minor road which leads to the village of Rockcliffe village, about 20 minutes walk. Rockcliffe has a sandy beach, public toilets and tearoom. The village is very exclusive with lovely detached houses with lush gardens overlooking the unspoilt bay.

There is no pub but there is the Baron's Craig Hotel. The Hotel is quite expensive but serves bar and restaurant meals from its bar and restaurant and terrace which has stupendous sea views. We didn't sample the menu but it has a very good reputation. The food was excellent when, as a student, I worked there as a waiter for the summer 30 years ago!! The Hotel, also, has an art gallery adjacent.

The nearest shop/post office is approx 1 mile away in the hamlet of Colvend. It, also, has a Church. The next nearest town is Dalbeattie about 4 miles away which has a range of shops.

The site is well situated for touring this beautiful part of Dumfries and Galloway with its lovely beaches and countryside and quaint towns and villages.

There are a number of good, waymarked, walks in the Rockliffe area. We particularly enjoyed the walk across the tidal causeway to Rough Island, acessed from between Rockliffe and Kippford. There are, also, a number of woodland walks near Rockcliffe. The Mote of Mark ancient site near Rockcliffe gives lovely view over the bay and further. Kippford is a pretty yatching port.

We enjoyed the site and would be happy to return again.

The shower and toilet facilities were very clean and the showers were hot and powerful.

The tent pitches were level and well drained with fantastic views to the coast.

The beach is a few minutes walk, and the village has an excellent coffee shop to relax in.

We will definately visit this site again.

This campsite has lovely views and good walks directly from the site.
Whilst we were at this campsite various improvements in the facilities were completed. The toilets and showers were clean with plenty of hot water. The new washing up facilities were also well presented and a new laundry area was completed early on in our 5 night stay. We were able to pitch our tent on level ground, although some of the pitches would not have been as level. Despite the wind and rain that we suffered the ground did not become waterlogged. The warden was helpful and friendly. A site we would visit again.
