A slice of heaven

We took our first club holiday here and what a surprise it was stunning!!!! Very peaceful and relaxing a real credit to Mary the owner ,the trees were really beautiful and neatly planted around the edge of the lake where the ducks wandered backwards and forwards , the dogs found it very amusing ...would definitely go back hopefully in the spring when all the daffodils are in full bloom who could ask for more :)

Wonderful site

We stayed here as our first site in Scotland and couldn't have picked a better site, owners were very helpful, thumper the dog was extremely friendly too. Fresh eggs were given to us free of charge and nothing was too much trouble. Watching the ducks on the pond, the horses in the field, the chickens running around was just lovely. The site is well looked after and obviously loved by the owner which is reflected in the general upkeep and the thousands of beautiful daffodils out at the time of our visit. Thoroughly recommend this quiet, rural, peaceful site.

Blowplain Fm, Away from it all!

This all grass CL is situated behind the farmhouse with a view over a duck pond. It is reached by a short tarmac drive from a narrow lane about a mile from the A712, Crocketford to New Galloway road. It has a good information room, toilet and a shower, and very friendly owners. TV, phone and wifi reception is good. Being that far from a main road it's very peaceful and has dark skies at night, great for stargazing. The local lanes are very quiet and a good 5ml walk can be made from the site with little or no traffic. The nearest shop is at New Galloway but one has to travel to Castle Douglas for a supermarket. Plenty of places to visit in the area, with offroad cycling tracks in the forest. A great site for getting away from it all.
