    Hi Ips
    We use this site for weekends as we only stay in dumfries the site is in 2 parts seaside and walled garden seaside has great views but both areas are really nice.

    The village its self has a small shop and a pub from the outside the pub looks like a right state but if you go in for something to eat you'll be surprised nothing fancy just cheap hearty food.

    Also has a bowling green and tennis court if you have a dog then theres loads of places to walk theres some kind of big house and you can walk in the gardens and woods also walks along the seaside but well worth a vist.

    Blimey!:Eeek: Years since we went there but remember it being lovelly.
    Think I heard recently that awnings and canopies are not allowed in the front section on the grounds of spoiling someone elses view.
    We were in the RV so had to go in the rear section (fair one). Lovelly site, good views, great footpath walk around the front to the right. Good bird watching. A great retail mill adjacent to the site. Got all sorts at very good prices. Got a great fleece there. Lovelly area, fairly quiet. nice pub local.
    Must get back there sometime.:thumb:

    Thanks, certainly looks very nice on the web site...........but dont they always. Been to lots of sites over the years that looked good on the pics but didnt show you what was behind the camera, sewage works industrial estates and so on. Therefore its better to ask if anyone has been. Its 200ish miles trip for me so not sure when we will be able to warrant the journey as we usually only manage to get away for 2 nights but defo putting it on my list.
    PS
    Stand by very soon for reccomendations for south coast as that is the plan for our weeks jollies in june :thumb:

    Hi,
    Agree with the others it's a lovely site in a super area. Site was featured about a year ago in the CC magazine. The surroundings have actually improved now - there used to be a large granary building next to the site but it's now been replaced by some very nice housing. Incidentally, the C&CC CS site Garlieston Lodge is right next to the CC site - you'll love either of them - but they can be busy!

    We stayed here for 6 days last July and were lucky enough to be on the sea facing side backing onto the river outfall. The weather was amazing, blue skies every day.
    It is one of the most scenic suites we have stayed on.
    On our last day we had an incredible sunrise.
    Although we live in Kent, we plan to go back.
    Highly recommended.

    We live in dumfries and my wife absolutely loves this site.There's a wee shop and pub handy and if you like a bit of fishing you can fish the tide 100 metres from your van it is peaceful as well and the warden is really helpful if you need anything,even where to go for a nice meal:thumb:
