Stayed here on a recommendation from friends. Not far from the M74, its a good spot for those travelling north or south.

The site is very large and was very busy on our first visit, but the pitches are so far apart, you wouldn't have known it. Facilities are dated, but were very clean, and the site is very well looked after.

The on site bar/restaurant was a bit of a disaster, waiting 10 minutes to order drinks, but it may have been a one off. Plenty to do there, golf, fishing, walking, so we will be back.

Great site, good walks for dogs, all amenities very clean, bar and restaurant very good value, play area for kids including a mountain bike area.

Only took a short hook up cable, warden was there straight away with a loan cable. Will be back

Stayed here with 4 adults and 2 kids for a weekend on a electric tent pitch. Site is excellent. Staff are friendly and helpful.

There's a good playground for kids and an few indoor games if weather isn't so good.

Pub and shop are reasonably priced and the food in the pub is of good quality.

We stayed at Hoddom Castle in our Motorhome twice in May 2016. You enter the caravan park and drive along a leafy tree-lined road, which really makes you feel like you are getting away from it all.

Only part of the Castle is still in use, but it is a pretty sight to behold. The facilities are good and there is a shop for essentials. There is a bar and restaurant with a decent selection of meals. We ate there a couple of nights and the food is good.

The site itself is pretty big with different areas for hobbit-type huts, tents and motor homes/caravans. As a result it can be a wee walk from the top end of the site to the main facilities, but this isn't a problem. There are toilet blocks at the top of the site, which is handy.

We will definitely be back.

No real views from site as is basically a large field but very peaceful as surrounded by trees. Castle is interesting to look at but not allowed too close. Surrounding countryside very nice and golf course lower down by the river is a good way to end a day.

Facilities good and clean and very useful having pub/restaurant on site for when you have forgotten something as we did!

Lockerbie Plane Memorial is very moving. Plenty else to do in surrounding areas with some beautiful drives a bit further north around Moffatt. Good Tesco in Annan or Morrisons in Dumfries.

Site seemed bit characterless mid week as a lot of statics which were not being used.

Had an excellent 3-day break here. The staff were very friendly and you were made welcome on arrival and during the stay.

Facilities were well-maintained but slightly damp (beware the semi-rough on the golf-course but otherwise it is a fun course). The on-site bar and restaurant were good value. TV reception can be patchy.

We will return.

This is a Fantastic camp site! We had the best time at hoddom castle!

Very nice clean toilets and shower area! clean washing area! Great field for our tent and no problems with the electric. With lots of room at both sides of our tent.

There was some great walks around the site and a super children's play area.

Also it was handy having a pub on site where they did nice meals and takeaways.

There are lots of places to visit near by too! Would highly recommend this site! We will be back xx

Great site, great Location. The restaurant / Bar did reasonable food at a fair price, the menu wasn't vast but sufficient. Drink prices were very reasonable.

Previous reviews state the Bar staff are miserable. I didn't find a problem. You must try The Thai Orchid in Dalton. 10 out of 10.

Would recommend

We have just arrived home from an absolutely fantastic holiday at Hoddom castle.

We visited it briefly earlier in July this year whilst in the area on holiday & we were impressed with their facilities so we decided to book a holiday there.

We were supposed to be stopping for 4 nights but after our 1st day there we cancelled our other stops & stopped there for an additional 10 nights.

The staff are very helpful, nothing is ever too much trouble, we explained when booking that we are new to touring caravans & therefore have little experience of reversing, the staff booked us onto a drive on / drive off pitch next to the children's play area which was fantastic for our 3 young children.

The one way system makes it safe for children to play & most people kept to the 10 mph speed limit.

The pitches are huge ! all hardstanding so need good pegs if using an awning, although we were still able to use our windbreaks to make a small garden for our dogs.

The restaurant is amazing, huge portions (even the children's portions were big) all homecooked food & fantastic value for money.

The location couldn't be better, 6 miles from Annan, 7 miles to Lockerbie & about 15 miles to Dumfries so plenty of shops to choose from.

The grounds are spotless, lovely marked walks along the river Annan.

The only slight downside is the distance to the hook up points (they are in the process of upgrading so each pitch has it's own point) but they wardens will lend you an extension cable if required.

Wifi is available in the bar only which was perfect for us, TV reception is not great judging from the amount of people messing around with their ariels not that we had a TV.

All in all an amazing site - cannot praise it enough, so good we have already booked to go back next week & will be booking to go back next year too.
