 I spent a long weekend here with my parents. Owners could not have been more helpful with bookings, allowed my parents (with a caravan) and me (with a 3-man tent) to share a pitch.

Pitches here are the among the flattest I have ever seen. 10m wide and quite deep so no probs for us with the 2 units, an awning, 2 cars and a picnic table.

Facilities are first class - clean, well thought out, practical - clearly the owners of this site are proud of what they have and quite rightly so.

Plenty of electric hook ups, bins, water points.

Play area for children - well used! Good games room with book swap, video and dvd - very informal. Surrounded by animals on all sides of the site - about 1 mile from the road - so blissfully quiet and traffic-noise free. Lovely views of the hills in the distance - and the sea nearby.

No shop on site - but plenty in the area. Fridge for freezing your ice blocks, ironing board, iron, washer, drier - all Dishwashing area (fairy liquid and a scrubber included).

Excellent - will def return again.

 I visited this site for 2 nights with my kids aged 13 and 8 & our dog.

This was my first time camping and I only did it after a nagging from the children who had camped before with their uncle.

I chose this site after reading the reviews here and I made a wise choice.

The site is situated near the coast with fields with livestock on both sides.

All the pitches appear to be flat and well spaced out.

The site was surprisingly quiet for the time of year and we had the pick of most of the pitches with only about 6 taken on our arrival.

As others have said, the facilities on site are very good. The block containing toilets, showers and laundry is quite new and in excellent spotless condition. There is also a pool table and tv/dvd/vcr.

At the far end of the camp there is a children's play area with swings and monkey bars.

We spent our time walking with the dog. You can walk from the camp along to an RSPB reserve on the coast then onto Wigtown harbour. There is also a forest at the top of the road with marked trails. We also visited the beach at Rigg Bay which is clean by UK standards.

One night we fancied fish and chips and headed into Wigtown, where I assumed there would be a chippy, wrong ! There wasn't any take aways at all and only a small Co-Op. Strange for a small town which boasts 7 bookshops.

Make sure you have plenty of supplies with you as the nearest place to stock up is Newton Stewart which is a good 24 mile round trip.

My first camping experience has been a good one due to the quality of this site and the wonderful weather.

 My partner and I had a lovely stay here.

Lesley gave us a very warm welcome and showed us all the facilities on our arrival. The toilet and shower block were immaculately clean and remained so for the three nights we stayed. As much free hot water in the shower as you need. A family bathroom was also available.

There was a lovely washing up area, (even providing washing-up liquid and dishclothes) with a freezer for iceblocks and free icecubes. A washing machine, tumble dryer, iron + hairdryer were also available.

We didn't take advantage of the children's play area or lounge/games room.

I'd recommend this sight to anyone, lovely views and plenty of peace and quiet.

 I would have to say I was very pleased by the attention to cleaning in all the facilities the showers were well thought out and the dish washing facility was excellent.

The owner was very helpful and showed me around the site and the facility, nothing was to much bother and the atmosphere was relaxing. I would recommend this site to family's and single persons alike.

The location of Drumroamin is off the main road and can be easily missed if you don't pay attention to the road sign my sat nav took me down a farm track so be wary, otherwise no problems.

 We have just returned from 2 nights at this site and agree with everything that has been said, it is a wonderful site. The shower rooms are of such a high standard they would not look out of place in a hotel.

Everyone seems to be catered for and there was a wide selection of people on site, mostly tents with an assortment of ages. The pool/TV room is a great asset if the weather is not too favourable, fortunately we had amazing weather so that was a bonus.

The views from the site and in the surrounding area are fabulous. We walked to the RSBP reserve and along the estuary to Wigtown harbour on the recommendation of the owner and we were not disappointed.

The owners are really friendly and extremely helpful. A fab site, you will not be disappointed.

 Wow what a site!

Just got back from a weekend with our walking group. First camp in Scotland (and this site), but won't be the last!

The welcome was very warm, the site was flat and well laid out, the toilets and showers were spotless and looked brand new. There were indoor washing up sinks, a tumble dryer, freezer, games room and numbered pitches with EHU.

We have rarely visited a site of this quality, and I haven't even mentioned the location and views, nothing short of breathtaking. At night the sky was like a planetarium and the silence was deafening until birdsong from first light.

I cannot sing this site's praises enough! I hope it goes from strength to strength, but not too much so!

Thanks so much, I'll be back!

 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!
