 Had a fabulous time at Solway View. Pitches were very spacious. The shower and toilets were spotless.

There is also a cooking area where you can make your meals. There’s a picnic table and fire pit at each pitch.

I had my two small dogs with me who also loved it. I will defo be going back probably for a longer stay next time.

The owner was very pleasant and approachable

 Stunning views and spacious pitches with exceptional facilities.

If you are looking for peace and quiet this is the perfect place.

The owner is helpful and friendly.

You can walk down to White Bay, a small sandy beach within 10 minutes of the site or drive up to the large parking and picnic site by a long beach a couple of mile up the road.

 Myself and 7 of my family/friends stayed here over the Easter weekend. We had a problem with our hook ups on the first night as it kept tripping, we had a very cold first night and were ready to pack up the following morning to come home.

The owners pulled out all the stops and got it sorted for us. We can't thank them enough, especially at a traumatic time for them due to a family member being very ill.

The campsite's facilities are very clean, there is a children's play park situated here too. The location is lovely with a 15-20 minute walk from the campsite through the nearby wood is a lovely secluded sandy bay.

Kirkcudbright is a 10-15 minute drive away and it is a lovely town, with lots of eating places and historical places to visit. A lovely campsite, with lovely owners.

We will definitely be back.

 What a fantastic site.

The host was really welcoming, facilities well maintained and easily accessed and pitch sizes are huge.

We had the best views you could imagine over the Solway and the beach was close by.

The dog exercise field was fantastic for my highly energetic collie as they can be off lead.

Absolutely loved it here

 We loved this site; the owners clearly cared and took great pride down to the last detail to give campers and caravanners the very best chance to experience the sheer beauty of the place, and to have a quiet, relaxing time.

The frizby game was great fun, and the walks amazing.

The facilities were spotlessly clean. We also cycled from the site, around the lovely lanes through nearby hamlets and villages.

I could easily have stayed longer; so much variety on the doorstep, and I’d most definitely return, and recommend to my friends. Thank you.

 Stayed in a large family tent with our 2 children aged 6 and 14 lovely size pitch with plenty of space and not to over crowded - dog Friendly too with fenced off area to walk off lead, Beautiful surrounding views.

Park was small but children had lots of fun there. Shower and toilet areas where clean and lovely and warm water. Dark skies where lovely and on a clear night so many stars and even spotted a few shooting stars.

Closest beach walk was a little hard to access due to the rocks might be difficult for anyone with mobility issues but we all managed OK as well as other beaches a little further but more accessible. Not really any shops close by if you forget any essentials.

Firewood available at reception. Any problems and the owners are only a phone call away and very helpful. Nice woodland walk nearby. Kirkcudbright was a short car journey away.

Overall a beautiful friendly secure site and reasonably priced for our 3 night stay.

 A really nice site

Beautiful location

Lovely friendly reception

The facilities are really good, very clean & modern

The site is in a superb location, overlooking a section of the Solway down a small country lane

Very quiet, great beaches close by.

There is a children's play area, should you require it?

Really good big pitches, bbq's allowed.

If you want to explore this part of Scotland? it is the ideal location
