Reviewer: Hedgehugger 7 reviews from this member

I'd certainly go back to Drumroamin; I was very happy with what it offered. Other recent reviewers have listed all the facilities this site offers, which are many and indeed spotless. The inevitable clumps of grass clippings walked into the washrooms first thing in the dewy morning vanished as if by magic; the place was wonderfully well kept.

The mostly single-track tarmac lane from the main road has one right-angle turn past an old steading; bear in mind the last 200m are on gravel. Perfectly firm, should not pose a problem. The site is level and open; trees have been planted, but are young still. If you need shade for your comfort, you might like to take an awning, sun umbrella etc. Down the centre is a newly planted green and copper beech hedge, which will look very attractive when it grows.

Pitch size is generous, as is hook-up provision, water taps, bins etc. Recycling bins for glass and cans are by the house. The site would be great for children - plenty of safe space to play. There are many interesting places to visit without travelling too far. Garlieston's the nearest beach. Kirkinner has a general store, Garlieston has two, and Wigtown has several including a Co-op, and there's a little market on Saturdays. A butcher comes to the site on Tuesdays. The all-round open aspect makes it a great spot for star-gazing.

Back down the lane and just across the main road from the site is a wood, which was awash with bluebells when I visited, and provides good (nice and shady when it's hot) dog-walking territory.

What a fantastic site, facilities are absolutely spotless and heated, you could eat your dinner off the floor.

Very friendly owners, level and well kept grassy pitches of a generous size. Views were fantastic. Easy Access to site

A great walk from site Wigtown via a local pub (Bladnoc Inn) which does great food at reasonable prices.

Site was nice and quiet when we were there but would be perfect for young families.

Dog friendly with plenty of space for walks.

Water was easy to load in our Camper and the Elsan disposal is nicely out of the way. I would like to see an area to drop grey waste though. I discussed this with the owner and she was very helpful about where to offload my grey waste and was interested to hear options for where to locate a point and what it would look like. A future development I think.

I would say this is the best site we have been on overall. Top marks and well done.

As with other recent reviews, we would also award Drumroamin Farm Camping and Caravan Site 10 out of 10. Firstly, we were met by the very friendly and helpful Lesley (Co-owner) who, after providing a warm welcome, gave us a tour of the facilities and even provided us with a loan of an OS Map of the area and some additional information leaflets.

The on-site facilities such as toilets, showers and dishwashing areas were immaculate at all times of the day and night. There was also free hot water and free washing-up liquid, dishcloth and sponge, as well as hair driers and an iron / ironing board. Coin operated laundry facilities and the free use of a freezer (for ice blocks) were also available here (although not used by us). Next door, there is a lounge / games room with T. V. And a small information / book library, where you can borrow and/or swap books. Again, this area was spotless at all times.

The pitches were large and could accommodate most size of tents very comfortably and without restricting your neighbours. The grass was short, well drained, as was the surrounding area, which was again very well kept and maintained ideal for pitching a tent.

This campsite is quite rural and about 2 miles (or 6-10 min. Drive) to the village of Kirkinner, where you can buy some bread and milk and some small groceries, etc. However, the campsite is surrounded with lovely scenery and is ideal if you like to relax and get away from it all, explore the South of Scotland; or if like us, you like walking, then you are very close to the Galloway Hills and surrounding forest walks. Equally, if you enjoy cycling or watching wildlife / birds, again this is an ideal location for you.

Overall, we had a very enjoyable couple of nights stay at a nice and reasonably priced campsite. We can also confirm that the access road to the campsite is a tarmac road, with plenty of passing places. One note of caution is to follow the directions provided on the Drumroamin Farm Camping and Caravan website and not your satnav, once you pass Kirkinner. Happy camping!

Having just left drumroamin farm campsite, Kirkinner, all I can say is, excellent. Took my 2year old grandson, facilities for him to play and wander about with his football unsurpassable. A very well cared for sandpit under cover so no worries about the rain, play frame suitable for older children as well. Owners very kind and helpful, short drive to nearest shop and with the road resurfaced no problem. Big very clean family washroom, both dishes and laundry washing areas spotless, warm and loads of hot free water which with a 2yr old is important he loved it with horses in the next field he was allowed to pet, thank you we will be back very soon

Dear past and future visitors, this is Lesley Shell the joint owner of Drumroamin Farm Caravan and Camping site. I am just leaving a review to let past users of our site know that we now have a new road leading to our site. All the potholes have gone and we now have a smart new tarmac road running to our property. This is fantastic news for us and we haope you will be happy too.

Thank you for your past custom and lets hope for a good summer season this year. Kind Regards Lesley and Ralph Shell.

We have stayed at this campsite quite a few times. The owners are very helpful and friendly, happy to help. There is a playground for the kids while you put the tent up and a sand pit, basketball, and a pool table. Its in a lovely area, beautiful countryside, beautiful seaside nearby. Its one of those sites where you could just stay on site the whole week and you've had a wonderful holiday. So peaceful. There are shops nearby, supermarkets, takeaways, museums, plenty of places to go. Locals are really friendly too, we have asked directions many times and they have always been very helpful. The toilet/shower facilities are brilliant, really nice to use, plus there's a washer and freezer. We love going back there.
