 Fantastic location, very clean toilet blocks and wash areas. Easy access water from pitch.

Lovely spacious pitch, unfortunately for first few days the weather caused lots of problems (can't be helped)

Owners helped by supplying some pallets to give us some easy access to our tent.

Will definitely look at returning again

 What a lovely site. We were on the lower field with great views across the bay. Big pitches and no restrictions on how to pitch as long as the unit is between markers. Showers were on the top field and a bit of a hike, 20p. Not too clean at certain times, wet suits cleaned in there. Toilets on bottom field not always in use, but used van facilities. Other visiters have been going for years, but so friendly to 'outsiders'. Laggon outdoors across the road is part of the site, brilliant breakfast, views are fantastic. Zip wired, and segwayed. This is the first site that we have rebooked as we were leaving, already booked for next year

 Wonderful place. I hadn't booked but they had a couple of pitches spare, right by the beach. It's probably best to ring first or book in advance. Reasonable price and with adequate, well-kept facilities. Very quiet place, mostly level grass pitches with EHU if wanted. Plenty of space around the pitches. Lots of open grass areas. I would definitely go again.

 A lovely site in a great location, we liked it very much and Harry the Hound was in his element. Easy access, don't worry about the single track road, there is room to get by on the grass if necessary.

It would be good if there were showers and a CWD on the lower touring level, both of these are on the top site which is mainly for statics, although there are a few touring pitches.

Don't know if anyone has mentioned the well stocked shop at Auchenlarie caravan park next door, no need to to Gatehouse of Fleet for supplies.

The only problem, and not the fault of the site, is that the nearest fuel seems to be at Kirkcudbright, nearly 10 miles away. There is also a small Tesco here and it's an interesting town. Also try the drive around from Borgue, which will take you past some lovely beaches.

We paid 19 per night, well worth it for the great location.

 A gem of a campsite next to a sandy beach backed by hills. The facilities are modern and well maintained in 2 levels with some well spaced permanent units. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. It has good access off the A75 and is handy for local towns and Galloway forest for hiking/walking. The dogs were very happy!

 Wow. Don't usually review but this place is awesome. If you want a bar, restaurant, pool, entertainment forget it. If however you want the most stunning setting, great views, great location, fab (if limited number of facilities) then this could be for you. The coastline and beaches here are like a mini Abersoch without the people, truly stunning. The people running are lovely and helpful. Didn't find a pub but didn't need one. Will return

 Been here a couple of times, previously in a tent and this time in a van, and I love this site! Both times it has been during term time so it has been quiet. The bottom field is right next to the beach where there are toilet facilities and a wash-up area. Showers are up at the main site. There is a hairdryer available. Facilities are clean and the main block also has washers and a room with information, freezers for storing food and re-freezing packs, some stuff you might want to buy to further enjoy the beach and a library of books. As it was not busy we were able to pitch with good distance between us. When the tide is in there is a sheltered stretch of water ideal for swimming - weather permitting! At low tide there are big stretches of sand for your dog to gallop around on. The outdoor activities centre near the site has a cafe that does lunches etc. For evening meals you would probably need to drive into Gatehouse or Kirkcudbright. Will be back!

 I just loved Mossyard. It's a serene little gem of a place with access straight on to an interesting, attractive, safe and clean beach.

We stayed for 5 nights and were lucky enough to bag a seafront pitch. We watched the tides fizz and foam in and out of the expansive bay, while our kids took full advantage of the paddling, building, climbing and exploring to be done there.

The facilities were spotless with toilets and dishwashing close at hand. The showers were a bit of a trek situated at the top end of the upper static site, but that's ok. We had time to spare.

This area of Dumfries and Galloway is an ideal location for those looking for a relaxing coastal holiday. There are a few local attractions around to visit, while great food and boutique shopping can be found in the pretty and nearby Gatehouse of Fleet.

There is also a handy Tesco in Kirkcudbright as well as a cracking chippy at the harbour.

Mossyard is a peaceful sanctum in which to get away from it all. Take your book and some wetsuits for the kids, put your feet up with a Pimms and watch those waves roll in.

 Chose this site for our seventh trip to Dumfries & Galloway and it is near the top! We were in the bottom field right next to the beach, which is a wonderful spot. A large stretch of sand when the tide is out and a lot of small beaches when the tide is in. There is a toilet block (2 toilets) at the end of the lower field with dishwashing facilities, so it is quite a long walk to the main block in the upper field, so far that some were taking their car which seemed a bit ridiculous. A well-kept site with good clean facilities, we hope to go back.

 Lovely site situated in a beautiful area of Dumfries and Galloway, the bottom field is right in the shore line with stunning views over the solway firth.

Facilities are spotless, and the pitches have plenty of room, enjoyed lovely walks on the shore with the kids and dog. There are also loads of local activities to enjoy.
