 Great site, highly recommend. Staff are very helpful and pleasant. Site has one way system throughout easy to navigate to pitch. If you need to I would recommend filling with water before finding your pitch as the chemical area is just after the reception.

Depending on pitch this could be a long walk back down. Pitches are spacious which is good But if you do want to use the facilities they are a bit of a walk. However drinking water and bins are easily accessible through the site.

Grounds are very well maintained likewise so are the toilets and showers. Ladies toilets are a little dated but very clean with more modern shower block. My partner informed me the male toilets and shower are again very clean and ideal but dated (he didnít like shower curtains)

We visited the bar just for a quick pint. Great staff and service, beer was enjoyable nice an chilled. Football was on too so bonus. Wide selection of gin. I even saw a wee dart board inside. 9 hole golf course.

£10 for the day which was great given the unpredictable weather or £20 for the month entrance just at reception so walking distance.

Tee boxes are a little up and down for getting the right footing but course was in good condition. Flat course with some tree obstacles and a couple of bunker but enjoy round and great value.

Spotted lots of walking signs but canít comment of them as didnít have time. But nice play areas if you have kids.

 Lovely site, loads of space. Very clean. Lacking pot wash amenities and could do with another toilet block. Really enjoyed the 'treasure hunt' on our last morning.

Finding the motorhome service point was fun! But the best one was trying to find the place we could leave the amenities keys when we left at 8. 45am. (Site office only opens at 10am on Sunday!) We eventually found a small red box with a very small notice stating Keys situated round the corner. Perhaps a notice on the office door would help.

 The castle grounds, Golf course and bar was really lovely and well maintained.

Very nice people here and the laundry and some loos were open but not the showers, anti bacterial cleaning cloths in all public areas to keep things clean.

Great area for dog walking along the river Annan and we would definitely come back.

 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.

 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.

Reviewer: Anita-B 1 review from this member

 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.

Reviewer: Ledburyred 4 reviews from this member

 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.
