Why stay here ...

Hemplands CL is located on a 190 acre sheep and arable farm which is run by John & Nessie Carson.

The site has panoramic views over the beautiful Nithsdale Valley- to the west we overlook the town of Dumfries (5 miles) and Criffel Hill (14 miles) while south, on the horizon, across the Solway Firth, we can see the Cumbrian hills.

This is a tranquil and relaxing site where guests can enjoy the scenery and walks but have a convenient base from which to explore the many and varied attractions of Dumfries & Galloway.

In a radius of six miles from Hemplands, guests have access to a variety of activities and attractions including golf courses, cycle trails, walks and fishing. The pretty small town of Lochmaben is four miles away and has three main lochs, a golf course and many interesting walks. There is a regular bus service on the A709 from the bus stop in Torthorwald village (1.3 miles) to Dumfries/Lochmaben and Lockerbie.

Within 30 minutes drive from Hemplands members can explore the Solway Coast and the small towns and villages of the area including New Abbey, Castle Douglas, Kirkcudbright, Thornhill, Lockerbie and Moffat. Visitor information packs are available on site and we will be happy to help with suggestions if required.

We are also well placed to provide a quiet and restful overnight stop for those travelling north or south as Junction 18 on the M74 is only 9 miles away and the A75 is within 4 miles from us.

We welcome dogs and walking/exercising facilities are available.

Nessie and John look forward to welcoming you to Hemplands. Our farmhouse is adjacent to the site so we are on hand to assist you if required and our aim is to make your stay with us as happy and carefree as possible.

What a find!

Hemplands Farm
We found this site as a stopover on our way south, but it is an absolute gem. If we hadn't already found our next stop we would have seen if we could stay longer... Electric, Wifi, views and great hosts. You need levelling blocks, but... This is one we'll return to...

Excellent CL

Hemplands Farm
We spent two separate nights here on route to the highlands. The site is very peaceful with lovely views . Nessie and her husband are the perfect hosts, making us feel very welcome and providing an outstanding welcome pack. An added bonus was the WiFi, the signal was really strong, probably better than we have a home! Emptying the chemical toilet is never the nicest of jobs but it was made easier here by a spotlessly clean toilet/tank to use. The best I have ever used! We will certainly stay here again, hopefully for longer next time so that we can explore the local area and will recommend this site to our fellow MV owners.

three days with the lambs

Hemplands Farm
Just passed three lovely days on a working farm. Nessie the owner gave us a very large collection of local information and attractions, really appreciated. Overall a lovely CL, peaceful with lots of new born lambs. The views over Dumfries and surrounding vistas were lovely and the glorious sunsets set them off. The lack of traffic noise was amazing, coupled with newly mown lawn really finished off the site for me. I would recommend this site to other members.

RELAXING WEEKEND

Hemplands Farm
Hemplands Farm CL is just over 20 miles from home. We discovered this during the Lockdown for Covid 19 as we started using local CLs to get away locally for a few days. Well kept grass site with beautiful views of local hills and Dumfries. Excellent value and fee includes Wi-Fi. You will get a lovely welcome from Nessie, who will hand you a comprehensive information pack on arrival.
