Fairly pleasant situation with mixture of tents and caravans in same field although access to site narrow and angled.

Inadequate electrical hook-ups which tripped twice during our 4 day stay, as it did with others. Owners unavailable to resolve problem which was ultimately sorted out by caravanners.

No chemical waste disposal on site, which I felt may be insufficient. One shower with meter.

Otherwise site afforded good access to Wigtownshire villages and ports, with beaches and golf course on doorstep.

Area is well worth a visit and we found a delicious meal in The Clansmen restaurant in delightful Port William.

This is a clean and well maintained site, the owner is very friendly and helpful. We stayed for a couple of nights and it was so peaceful as it is a small site. The beach is a 15min walk down the hill which is suitable for swimming or fishing.

There is a golf course down the hill towards the beach for those who enjoy a round or two. If you are looking for and action packed break this is not for you its for those who enjoy great views and peaceful surrounding

We originally booked for 2 nights but liked the site so much we extended our stay to 5 nights. Although it was the summer school holiday the site was ideal for anyone wanting a peaceful stay. The facilities were clean and soap was provided. There was one shower but as this is a small site we did not have to queue. The only down side was that the washing up point only had cold water and it was not covered as we had good weather this was not a problem. The skies were very dark and although this was a summer stay it was a delight to look at the stars.

There is no shop on site but there are 2 shops at Port William, a short drive away which had everything we needed.

Although we did not use it we were told by fellow campers that the nearby golf clubhouse did reasonably priced meals.

The camp site is on a bus route so it is possible to do linear walks.

If you need to put your ice packs in the freezer the site owner Pauline is more than willing to do this for you.

We would definitely like to return.

Reviewer: Papageno 1 review from this member

I love this site. Discovered it last year and must've been back about a dozen times by now. It has become a proper bolthole for us.

It is a special site where you are made to feel like guests in the owners' garden. They could not be more helpful and we always feel welcome.

Facilities although basic are always clean and well maintained and not without their own unique charm - it was a village school in a previous incarnation. Although the site is next to the road it is very quiet - think what roads must have been like 50 years ago and you'll get the idea!

For this reason I would certainly recommend the area if you want to do some cycling on flattish traffic free roads - a cycling paradise! Nearby are a couple of spectacular beaches which are regular attractions when we visit.

If you are a golfer the local course is minutes walk away and looks a cracker (I played when I was younger). At night the skies become alive with stars being in the Galloway dark skies area - it was particularly spectacular during last year's meteor showers!

The peninsula also seems to command its own microclimate so the weather is often a lot better than the mainland.

I have camped in numerous sites in Britain and keep returning to this site which is testament to its charm - all in all a very special place!

This is a charming little campsite, very pleasant owners who are keen to keep the site clean & tidy.

Toilet block & showers extremely clean if rather antiquated! Plenty of hot water. Shower great. Dishwashing in open air with no shelter.

Only space for a few tents. Lovely views from the caravan pitches. Great site for looking around that part of Scotland. We went to Whithorn and the North & South Rhins.

No playing area for children, great for little ones and adults.

Proper old-fashioned camping in the style of Enid Blyton. We thought it was fab!

We had a really enjoyable and relaxing weekís holiday at Knock School Caravan Park. The site is reasonably priced, pleasantly quiet, dog-friendly, and the facilities are clean and tidy.

The site is located in a very attractive rural landscape which is ideal for easy access to various beaches and other visitor attractions (e. G. St. Ninianís Chapel and Cave, St. Medanís Golf Course, Barsalloch Fort, Wigtown, Port William etc).

Thereís also plenty of wildlife to see in the area (we spotted kestrels, buzzards, oyster catchers and roe deer).

We would have no problem recommending it!
