The wifi here though is poor and only available in one room. Tuesday we spent the day out and wednesday used the pool which again was great if not a...

Pros: good facilities for children and families, lots of playing space as tourers and tents grouped together, nice swimming pool and amusements, beach small walk away. Cons: we had a meal which wasnt very nice...

Visited for a long end with two children. Caravan roomy and very clean, as was park. Beach is clean and empty. The park has a nice pool with good restaurant. The staff were polite and friendly. And the weather was amazing. Best local attractions is Maybe Forrest.

Just got back from a four night break at this park, we only booked Friday-Monday but the weather was fantastic and the kids were having such a good time we asked about staying an extra night and for an extra £40 it was well worth it. One word of warning, this park was listed as Dunfries but it is another...

We had a nice clean caravan, slightly dated but served its purpose and smelled fresh. Shop slightly expensive but not over the top. Amusements have reduced in size so bit cramped. Beautiful walks and beaches so good for cheap days out. Evening entertainment professional and great for young families - we never stayed past nine so can't comment on later...

A large holiday park with acceptable and predictable facilities, and ideal base for days out in the unspoilt Galloway countryside. The enduring memory that I will take back home with me is the unfailingly politeness and friendliness of the staff. Nothing too much trouble and always smiling - a trait I found, without exception, displayed by all we met and...
