 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.

 Second time to the area but first time at the camp site.Breathtaking views, such a warm reception on arrival, shown where everything is and everywhere is exceptionally clean,

Leslie and Ralph are always working either cleaning, mowing or emptying bins, very helpful too if you need anything. Nice little playground too if you have little ones.

We spent 15 days here and although we suffered high winds and rain and the toilet block and laundry area was still very clean also the drainage on the site was good.

Will definitely be returning

 The site is as previously described with fantastic views, peaceful and very helpful owners.

The shower block and toilets were immaculate at all times. Although we found the water from the family shower runs towards the shower room door and the floors were slippy when wet this did not put us off in any way. We never had to queue for showers or toilets. Excellent washing up facilities with freezer for blocks and ice. Pitches were spacious and brilliant price of £15 per night including EHU.

Our three year old enjoyed the children's play park which was wooden and looked quite new. We visited the beach at Galloway House Gardens at the owners suggestion and we were not disappointed with the lovely walk through mature gardens to a private beach. We had a lovely quiet break and would certainly recommend.

 We visited this site as part of The Avondale Club and were definitely not disappointed. Lovely site with perfectly immaculate shower block, play area,level pitches, beautiful views, and excellent owners.

We were lucky with the weather, lovely and sunny, plenty of places to visit and lovely walks around the site. Garlieston was our favourite - especially Galloway House Gardens and the secluded beach which you could access on foot.

We had a lovely Sunday Lunch at the Bladnoch Arms pub, and we used the Games Room on site for a Cheese & Wine evening.

 Spent 3 nights here with my husband daughter and her friend, this is a great child friendly sight, totally remote and safe feeling, you are welcome to use a bbq but no fires / firepits allowed on this site,there is a climbing frame, swing and shute at the far end of the site and at the bottom of the site there is swingball and basketball which proved a big hit with our girls (and mum & dad) there is also a sandpit for younger kids.

There is a games room / dining room/ tv room which is great if its wet. The toilet / shower block was excellent, plenty of them so no queueing up at busy times,loads of space and it was spotless, there is even a hair dryer,

There is dishwashing facilities, washing/drying machines, even a freezer for your ice blocks, also plenty of ice left by the owner which is a nice touch,(nothing worse than a warm drink)

Set in a beautiful location with great walks and if your lucky a fab sunset,there is a co-op about 10 mins drive away and some other shops and pubs, you should get everything you need here.

There is a couple of horses in the field on site, they seemed to like our girls especially when they had an apple for them. Overall this is a fabulous site would recommend you check it out you won't be dissapointed,we had a great time, will visit again.

Reviewer: Ronapeter 1 review from this member

 The site is easy to find if you follow the instructions (to start with we didn't, but the country's great so it didn't matter).

Our arrival coincided with our first night in a rental motorhome, which had completely nil charge to leisure battery.

Lesley and Ralph helped us out considerably. Without their help we would have been a pair of ranting fools in the corner of the site, moaning about the total lack of all power in our motorhome. Thanks again.

The site's well-managed and lovely, with beautiful views and facilities.

The walks are good and the locals friendly.

We went there because we'd read the reviews, but it exceeded our expectations.

Reviewer: JohnAngela 1 review from this member

 Having spent three nights here over Easter, I can thoroughly recommend it. While the weather was not the kindest, the facilities were superb.

It is a very peaceful site with large pitches with superb views to the hills and sea. Its location enabled us to explore the whole of the Dumfries and Galloway area with ease. The owners could not have made us any more welcome.

Reviewer: Fiona W 196 reviews from this member

 A super site that we'll be back to. Located south of Kirkinner on the B7004 Garlieston Road, turn off opposite Kilsture Forest (signed walks). Very quiet and peaceful - only the sound of seabirds and livestock. Good dark night skies for star gazing. Absolutely flat grass field, widely spaced pitches, pick your spot. Fabulous open views to the hills and sea in the distance, but this openness means it was very exposed in the Equinox rain and gales that we experienced - there's no shelter here at all. Excellent dog walk in fields and woods. Friendly helpful relaxed owners. New toilet block / laundry room / games room, very well fitted out and spotlessly clean. Minimum of signs telling you what to do / not do, which we prefer. Not pressured to leave by midday - though the site was almost deserted. It won't be in the CCC Handbook for some time - they missed the deadline for the current edition that will last for 2 years. But the site is on the current 1:250 000 OS map (Road Map 3).

Reviewer: Dave C 2 1 review from this member

 This was a second visit for our family, there were 4 of us in total, caravan, awning and pup tent, the toilet block is always spotless despite it's heavy use on a busy bank holiday weekend, Lesley & Ralph always cleaning. We stayed for 11 days in total, everyone a pleasure. There is now a play park for the kids, what a really great site.

See you next year Drumroamin.

Think we'll book early, it's getting very popular and no wonder, it's ACE.
