 Stayed here for two nights recently. Had a wonderful stay. Cycled around 25 mile from site on quiet roads and then took a trip to the Grey Mare's Tail waterfall and hiked up to the loch above.

Think we paid £19 pn inc EHU. On the Sunday night we ate at Hugo's which is a lovely Tapas bar/restaurant in town.

The site is a bit basic but has a cafe, (which we didn't use), and also fishing. Showers are £! for up to 4 minutes however you need at least £2 for a decent hot shower.

 Site seems a work in progress but overall we really liked it.

We were due to arrive between 6pm and 7pm and received written confirmation that arrivals after 7pm aren't allowed access even though paid in advance (no exception for road delays etc).

Three areas- The Circle is 6 hardstanding pitches with grass areas between and electric @£19 (despite info re not going on grass a motorbike with a tent was pitched up on the grass next to pitch 5 and bike was ridden on grass to park by tent).

The aire with electric has 9 pitches on gravel, not the best aesthetically but does the job@£15

Aire without electric - pitches on gravel with some grass@ £9

Then there is a separate tent area too.

Loos /showers as previously reviewed. With several tents on site too some queues first thing.

Fishing lakes are lovely for few minutes walk around but only accessible from 9-5.

Garden centre seemed to be just a few stands of plants in pots.

Easy 10 minute flat walk in to town.

Based on proximity to motorway and price its an excellent option and we will use again.

 Positives, it is convenient stop off on the way up the M74, access is easy as the whole site is flat. It is cheap, we paid £17.50 for a pitch with electric although two weeks later on our return it was £18.

Toilets are clean, 2 male 2 female, although unfortunately shower and toilet are combined so if two people are showering and you want the loo not all is lost though because if it is during the Green Frog's cafe their toilets are open.

The cafe is all right but my wife and I weren't wowed by the offerings. It is a reasonable walk into Moffat and there are plenty of eateries.

Downsides, those people who said it is a lovely site! It is a gravel carpark, perfectly adequate for overnighting. There is a green area that takes around 7 units and the only area that allows awnings, which would be more pleasant for a longer stay.

I don't appreciate on booking in a long lecture on the site rules and the dire consequences if they are broken, it sets you off on the wrong foot.

The barrier is obviously somewhat problematic as we were given very stern instructions that it is our responsibility to ensure no one tailgates so you are expected to stop block the road and wait until the barrier was down.

The barrier took some time to descend by the way. Final downside and most importantly we felt the units were all too far close together.

This was not a case of cramming extra people in the pitches are all very clearly marked. My estimate was less than 12' making the whole area a serious fire risk if any accidents were to occur. It is because of this that we won't be using the Green Frog site again

 We love this site and have stayed more times than I can remember.

Good amenities-we have stayed on grass and hard standing. Couple that run it are very friendly and helpful. Hubby loves the fishing and I like walking around the (conveniently)close shops.

Nice relaxed but secure site. Will be back again once you're open. 👍

Reviewer: Mondeocort 65 reviews from this member

 Very accessible no frills site with basic facilities. Cheap and cheerful.

Warmly welcomed at reception on arrival and given our pitch number and info about rules and regs etc.

We chose non ehu aire and likened it to an overspill carpark but it was perfectly adequate. Proximity to Moffat is very good and an easy 10 minute walk.

The facilities were ok, I imagine they must be heavily used as I'm led to believe they are less than 2 yrs old. I think they could do with a regular deep clean as there was area's in the cubicles that looked like they hadn't seen a cloth or cleaning agent for months.

The chemical waste area had a nasty whiff also but with the current heat wave and dry weather, I wonder if that didn't help.

Breakfast was lovely in the on site cafe and very good value for money.

Overall, we would visit again as the positives far outway the negatives.

 Stayed here for one night on journey down south.

Toilets very clean but only 2. Wouldn’t like to be here when it’s busy.

Showers are £1 but never used them.

Lovely cafe with lovely home bakes.

Nice short walk into town.

Reviewer: Jojam 3 reviews from this member

 Do not go by the pictures of the site it is nothing but a car park. Great location off the motorway for a 1 night stay.

Toilets need a scrubbing brush.

The whole area needs weedkiller which is amusing as it's a garden centre, not to mention a lawn mower.

The area with awnings have no space to park next to your van and I'm sure if measured would not be the regulated 3 or 4m apart.

The grey water disposal is in the middle of the car park.

Stay off the grass how many times in the rules messaged to you in advance and told on check in I lost count.

Cheap site unfortunately not as described and certainly not cheap and cheerful.

 Superb clean site. Very organised and excellent booking, contact and detailed communication.

Great position, short walk to walk into Moffat town centre.

Quiet and beautiful surroundings.
