 Fab little site!

This is a compact site, located next the park (excellent for the dog), local football ground & primary school, so not a site for lots of space & views.

However, there is plenty of room on the site to not feel on top of your neighbours. Literally 2 minutes from the town, & a 20 minute walk to Dalbeattie forest - which is why we picked this site.

The wardens & all the regulars on the site are all very friendly and accommodating, & the facilities are spotless. Even though the site was full, no queueing at all!

The only negative is the 2nd shower in the ladies, this is simply curtained off in the main part of the bathroom. Whilst I doubt anyone would open the curtain when the shower is in use, I just wouldn't feel comfortable using this shower.

Lovely part of the world & would book again next we are in the area

 We stopped off here to empty and refill. The site is small and compact at the side of Dalbeattie all statrs ground and Colliston park.

You access the site from the town centre past the oblisc. The access is a little tight with a big unit. The site is level with mixed gravel and hard standings with electric. The amenities are outside the pitched area at the side of the football ground.

Male and female toilets and showers. Elsan point. There are 2 showers and toilets in each block which were clean enough.

The wardens were nice and live on site.

It's a short walk to the kings for a tasty meal and drink (vivid restrictions permitting). A short drive to coral towns of kippford and Rockliffe also Mereshead bird reserve is worth a visit especially for the beach.

Dalbeattie has one of the 7 Stanes mountain bike tracks which are well worth a ride plus miles of woodland walks with wild deer and a small loch in the town wood and 1 at the Colvend side.

 Ideal site for the Dalbeattie mountain biking trail and forest walks.

The owner was very helpful and accommodating.

The site was immaculate and facilities good.

A few minutes walk into the town with pubs and local shops. Fabulous bakers also. Had a meal at the kings hotel where the food was excellent

Reviewer: Allan T 1 review from this member

 Found this site by pure chance. We were looking for a one night stay at short notice.

During this current coronavirus situation most sites were full or had not reopened yet. Sent an enquiry to Islecoroft and they had a space for the night we wanted.

The site was fantastic and everything we wanted, close to town for shops and pubs, grass or grandstanding pitches, near good playpark for the dog. Friendly and helpful staff. Very fair price.

We will definitely be back.

 We have just returned after a 4 night stay at Islecroft Caravan and Camping Site. At first I was a little disappointed at where the site was situated, however the site is close to all places of interest and within the beautiful town of Dalbeattie.

The site is small and compact with very little privacy, however the couple who run the site are really nice people and very friendly. We travelled around the area and visited Auchencairn, castle Douglas, Powmillimount, Southerness and Kirkaldy and went on some nice forest walks close by.

The beaches are really nice around the area too. Sandy hills is spectacular, however, parking very limited at busy periods.

The site has laundry facilities, toilet and shower block which I must say was very clean and also an area for washing up dishes etc and clean drinking water.

There is a nice park nearby for children to play in which is directly next to the site.

No camp fires allowed, however fire pits and barbeque are allowed.

 What an excellent site. Small and quiet, but very friendly. I am planning to go back again if not this year definitely next. Might even look around Christmas.

Facilities are great and a park within 100m. Shops are within walking distance. Plenty of places to eat and the Birchtree Hotel has kids free with adult paying.

Meals are fantastic and they cater for gluten and dairy intolerances.

 Handy site for the nice town off Dalbeattie, this is under new management the guy has done a fair bit he is just waiting on the council renovation to the toilets.

Until then they are clean a bit dated but rmost sites are similar, plenty hot water and a nice quiet site, great for dogs as there is a great park beside and a play park for kids.

Plenty off good places to eat in the town and lots off great places to go about the area.

 We arrived with our friends in their motor home and our camper nice friendly welcome. We chose our spot on grass but field was very soft and wet. I asked if we could change to hard standing and this was done with no problem, site is quiet and relaxing toilets and showers are nice, plenty hot water paper towels etc and you get your own key.

Laundry room with washing machine, dish washing facilities. 10 minute walk to town. Enjoyed our stay.

We are looking forwards to coming back next year.

 We came for 2 days and ended up staying over. Site Manager could not be more helpful. Toilets basic but clean. Washing up facilities and laundry are first class. Dalbeattie is a lovely town and Islecroft means you are right next to the town centre but not noisy - lovely park for dog walking and Dalbeattie Town Woods a few minutes drive away. Would recommend.

Reviewer: DCHart 1 review from this member

 Good flat draining site - very well-maintained. Torrential rain but no flooding. Very friendly welcome. Small quiet site - exactly what we were looking for. Excellent wifi connection!

Toilet block old fashioned but perfectly serviceable and very clean, with soap, paper towels, toilet paper.

Wooden picnic benches on-site.

I chose this site because of walking distance to village so that we didn't need to unhook the campervan from the drive away awning all the time.

Loved all the fluffy bunnies hopping around the site!

Will definitely be back again soon!
