Date of Visit: August 2023  Confirmed Booking Unit:  Trailer Tent
Nights stayed: 6 Travelling as:  Solo traveller
Reviewer: Peterm 1 review from this member

 Lovely quiet site in a beautiful setting.

The owners couldn't have more friendly and accommodating, Hamish helped me to move my trailer tent to a better part of the site and I was extremely grateful for his assistance in putting up the trailer tent as it can be a struggle on my own.

The loo and shower were immaculate and good washing up facilities.

The area appears to be good for walking and is definitely great for cycling.

Both Dumfries and Thornhill are nearby providing plenty of choice for shopping and eating.

 Stayed one night en route to Arran,

Owner said lots of people do that! Great little site,

Very friendly welcome,

Saw the dog so immediately showed me walk routes.

 Pleasant, peaceful site in a hamlet.

Helpful, friendly staff.

Facilities clean and basic.

Little or no telephone signal on site.

Details of one place to eat near by but an expensive menu.

Reviewer: Lindamcp2 1 review from this member

 Site was lovely were well maintained.

It is a very quiet and remote location. Owners very friendly and helpful.

The only downside was no access to WiFi and unable to use mobile data as no signal. This site states WiFi access but this is not the case.

 This is a beautiful peaceful campsite.

We enjoyed our one night stay here and did a lovely walk from the campsite.

We did not meet the owner but the warden John was very attentive to a problem we had with our Motorhome water pump and went above and beyond in an effort to solve the problem. Much appreciated.
