Excellent site. Lovely people, that never stop working, be-it cleaning the already spotless toilet and shower facilities, or cutting the grass, or emptying the many bins around the site, these guys were always working. A very well kept site 10 out of 10. The only thing in need of improvement would be the driveway needing resurfacing, but we can't fault the site at all.

Great play areas for children and a separate one for basketball. Games room with pool table, tv and a comprehensive range of books.

One of the best sites we've stayed on.

We will be back!

I can only echo what others have said before: what a lovely site! ‘Winkie’ below has covered nearly everything, I’d add that there is a swing/slide set at the very bottom of the site, in a non-EHU tent area.

At the top of the site, there’s a concrete area with basketball hoop, swingball and lots of balls out for use. Next to this is the covered sandpit with toys. There’s a family shower room (push button fixed head) with baby change table for disabled or families with kids under 5 years – always very warm and clean. The laundry sink can fit a (small) baby in!

We were on pitch 1 (next to the sandpit!), which I wouldn’t recommend for tenters – a LOT of stones. Spoke to tenters on pitch 6 and they said there were no problems elsewhere (this was their 5th year).

So much to do in the area we couldn’t fit it all into 4 days! We spent a couple of hours on the Galloway House beach (it IS a slight trek from the carpark for little legs, so take a buggy for toddlers). Caught several shrimps, baby fish and a crab at low tide.

The Cream O Galloway ice-cream farm is a whole day’s outing. We went on a wet morning and actually ran out of time to do everything before tea! Marvellous for children of any age – too much to mention (see their website!). We did the factory ‘tour’ (you get to look through a window) with the 10 flavour tasting – really good.

If it wasn’t a 6 hour drive we’d be back again this weekend. Recommended.

What a lovely site

The pitches we used were great, the owners were really helpful and friendly when we arrived, encouraged us to pull over one of their picnic benches between our two pitches and checked we were ok. They always seemed to be doing something on the site, emptying bins, constantly cleaning the toilets etc (they always seemed spotless) the kids really appreciated the playground(as did all the kids on site) and the option to go in and play a game of pool in the evening was extremely well received.

There are not a great deal of 'things to do' in the area, but that didn't bother us much as we're quite happy to have a low pressure holiday with the occasional walking trip or visit to the beach (not too far and not too bad).

We loved this site and hope to go back at about the same time next year.

By far the best site we have been to! If you are visiting the area you would be absolutely nuts to go anywhere else after reading all the great reviews, they aint wrong! And one of the cheapest sites also!

Get fresh eggs on the farm road in ,from the wonderful couple with the delightful pony! Excellent new play area for kids our two loved it,pool table in tv room, games area at side of toilet block, cows, sheep etc in adjacent fields (take carrots for the horse she loves them).

Good dog walking/ cycling in the nearby forest. Loads of towns and beaches about. Lots to see and do. Wished we had stayed for two weeks not one and we would have if we hadn't already paid a deposit on next site!

Only fault was the toilet block floor is very slippy when wet and both my kids fell on it. They only did it once mind you!

Just got back from a week at this site. Great place for exploring the Solway Firth. Lovely clean wash rooms and toilets. The pitch was nice and large with wonderful views down to the sea and the distant hills.

If you want piece and quit though avoid the school holidays as there are lots of young families on site. Overall a wonderful site and very reasonably priced also. Would not hesitate to return here again.

We eventually made it to this site after a previous attempt was halted due to a family matter.

We were certainly glad that we made it as it is one of the best sites we have been to.

Lesley and Ralph were very helpful and we were surprised to see that they were always out and about working away on the site.

The surrounding area offered plenty to do and see while the site was relaxing and peaceful. It actually felt very comfortable and we could have stayed there a lot longer if time permitted(we did actually stay an extra 2 nights).

The kids loved the park and games room. It was a change for them to disappear for so long.

We are definitely planning on a return visit next year and the kids will be looking for the crazy horse in the field behind the site.

We can only agree with the other reviewers regarding the toilets/showers and other facilities - brilliant.

We visited this site for just one night on a short break from our home in Glasgow. We found it to be a super site, well maintained and spotless. (Lesley was cleaning the toilets at 11pm so they were clean for the morning - what dedication! And Ralph is constantly emptying the bins and checking the site to make sure its clean and tidy.)

We had a warm welcome onto the site by Lesley and she showed us around to make sure we knew where everything was. Our boys enjoyed using the games room and found a rope swing in the nearby forest too! We had a great pitch with lovely views.

Were very lucky with the weather too! Visited nearby Garlieston and had a lovely walk along the shore to Rigg Bay and through Galloway House Gardens. Its a lovely part of the country and the campsite just made it perfect.

Would have been good if you could buy milk and basic provisions on site but its not far at all by car to the local village. Hope to return in the not too distant future!

Just returned from a 4 day visit to Drumroamin. What a fantastic site!

Great flat pitches with a lot of room. Electric pitches around the perimeter of the field, (non electric in the middle). Small park for the children to play in and a games room with sofas, TV, Pool table to occupy them later on.

Toilets / Kitchen facilities very good. 3 Showers in mens & womans, but rarely was anyone in them.

Great location with Garlistone, Isle of Whithorn, Newton Stewart etc all near by. Good Fish & Chips in Whithorn. No shops within walking distance, so just get supplies when you are out and about.

We visited Culzean Castle (quite a drive up the coast (45 miles), but well worth it for NT members). Also visited Portpatrick, Port Logan (go to the pond!) and Mull of Galloway another day. All great to see and visit.

We were lucky with the weather, but the day before we arrived it had rained all day, but pitches were dry, so drain well.

Site very clean. Bins emptied twice daily.

Definitely go back for longer next time.

We spent 3 nights on this peaceful camp site, perfect for visiting surrounding area. Pitches are superb, lovely view of the hills and sea.

The toilet and shower blocks are the cleanest we have seen in all our touring years (25 years )

there is a room for relaxing to just sit or watch tv, play one of the numerous dvds that are available or choose a book to read.Great camp site and we cant wait to go back.

Flat and well maintained campsite with excellent facilities including very clean toilet and shower block with 2 washing machines (£3 to operate), a tumble dryer (50p for 15 minutes), a fridge freezer with ice packs you can use and ice cubes in bags, a washing basket with pegs (there's a washing line outside too) and - most unexpectedly but very welcome - a hair dryer (and power socket in the toilet block next to a mirror).

There is also a sink for washing clothes by hand and 3 sinks for dishes, which come equipped with cloths, sponge scourers and washing up liquid.

Next-door to the shower block is a little room with books and games, a sofa, table and chairs, which you could use to relax in, write postcards, etc. Outside this there is a small play area for children, which has a sandpit and a basketball net.

The whole place is clean, tidy and well organised but it still feels reasonably wild because it's at the end of a mile long rough road (fine for cars driving slowly).

There's not much in the immediate area in terms of shops, etc. But this is part of its charm and what makes it quiet. The nearest village is Kirkinner, which has a pub and a post office shop, and I'm not sure how far it is but perhaps 2 miles from the campsite itself.

There are plenty of things to see and do in the surrounding area including several lovely gardens (Logan Botanic Gardens, Logan Gardens, Ardwell House Gardens and Glenwhan Gardens), the Mull of Galloway lighthouse and RSPB reserve (which also has a good cafe and shop), Sandhead beach (nice tearoom called Woodlea in Sandhead, well-stocked village shop and the excellent Tigh-na-mara restaurant), Portpatrick, Wigtown book town (amazing array of second hand bookshops which makes an excellent way to spend a wet day, and there's a nice cafe called Cafe Rendezvous there, as well as a couple of pubs serving good meals and a couple of other small cafes), Whithorn and Isle of Whithorn (the Steam Packet Inn there is very good for food and also stocks several real ales). There is also the wonderful Galloway Forest Park to explore if you fancy going inland a bit, which includes 3 information places with surprisingly good cafes and many woodland walks.

I've been going to the Galloway area since childhood and I still love it. It's a relatively undiscovered area of Scotland, in terms of tourism, and although it doesn't have the dramatic scenery of the northwest, it does have a very relaxing air about it and I find it a great place to wind down and chill out.
