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.

Excellent CL

Hemplands Farm
We stayed in our motorhome for 3 nights at the end of June. As others have said, we had the warmest of welcomes from Nessie armed with a huge Welcome Pack and wifi code, just lovely. Sadly we had the one totally wet day of our month long trip here, but perhaps it was good to have a rest day. The next day we caught the bus to Dumfries and enjoyed exploring the Robert Burns trail. Would definitely like to come again and explore further, it is a beautiful area. Thanks!

BEAUTIFUL NESSIE AND GRANNY JESSY.

Hemplands Farm
We have been caravanners since 1980, but never have we received such a warm welcome as we did from Nessie. We can only reiterate what previous reviewers have said. The site is quiet and secluded. Highly recommended. We spent a very peaceful 11 nights at the end of June. PS: Granny Jessy is one of Nessie's pet sheep, as opposed to the commercial flock.

Lovely Site

Hemplands Farm
Lovely well kept site and welcome from the owners, they genuinely care that you enjoy their site. Good views shame pub in the village closed. Easy to get to the Solent Firth, Steamboat Inn good for food. Fabulous beach at Southerness the dogs loved it. Super coastal walk from Sandy Hills to Rockcliffe (5 miles we got the bus back!) Beautiful walk from Rockcliffe to Kippford for dinner at the Anchor hotel

Perfect CL!

Hemplands Farm
This is such a lovely CL - The owner, Nessie greets you on arrival with a warm welcome and a huge Information Pack full of local tourist information and the all important Wi Fi login details.(Super fast Wi Fi - which puts many Club sites to shame!) The CL is just a few miles drive from Dumfries, lovely well drained open site on a very gentle slope with just a few sheep in the adjacent fields. Come here and enjoy the tranquillity, peace and quiet! I will definitely re visit.

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...
