Handy stopover

We stayed for one night on way up to the Highlands. Owner was very pleasant and we would probably had a longer chat had it not been raining. We found the CL a little narrow to manoeuvre and levelling blocks required due to the slope. The views were stunning. The bins and waste area were tidy and out of the way the other side of the gate.

Whins, Ecclefechan....a braw wee site.

This is a grand quiet basic farm site with EHU and 2 H/S pitches. It could be a bit cramped with 5 vans but there is room. The site is easily reached being less than 3 miles from the A74(M) junction 20, the last 1/2 ml or so is along a tarmac farm road, which is ideal for walking ones dog being virtually traffic free. It commands good views over open fields towards The Solway and Criffel and there is a footpath behind the site up into a wood where one might see Red Squirrels. There are plenty of places of interest close within easy driving distance such as the Thomas Carlyle's birthplace, Caerlaverock Castle, Sweethearts Abbey and the forest at Ae and Mabie. There is good low level walking around the Hoddom estate on marked trails. Annan is about 4 miles from the site and has an Aldi and a Tesco with petrol. It is an ideal site for those that just want an overnight stop when travelling to of from Scotland, or as a base to explore The Solway Coast. Great value at £10 per night and we will certainty be using it again.

Lovely site with very easy access to motorway.

You have great views to the Lake District, Solway Lowlands and the Isle of man. Slightly sloping hard standing on some pitches. The perfect stopover site, but plenty to see nearby. Very nice owners.

IDEAL CL ON OUR HALFWAY STOP HOME FROM THE HIGHLANDS

We used this as last minute booking, half way stop on our journey home from the Western Highlands. Owner very cheerful & pleasant. It ticked the main boxes we look for with CL's ,(as we prefer these to Club sites), which are:- clean & tidy, fantastic setting with panoramic views & most important the grass was short & lawns maintained (long grass is a bugbear). With the added bonuses of electric hook up, not far from the A74, & hard standing pitches we will definitely be booking this idyllic spot again!

Stop off on our way North

This is a perfect small site for either a short or long stay as it is close to the motorway and A75/76. Good communication when making an enquiry and warm welcome from the owners, with the directions in the site directory proving clear and accurate. In terms of access, we had absolutely no problems with our 7.5 metre motorhome and used levelling ramps once on the hard standing. The views from the site were lovely as mentioned on previous reviews. We did not explore local places of interest as we were just passing through but will definitely call in again.
