Why stay here ...

Andrew and Julie welcome you to Amisfield, near Dumfries (Dumfries and Galloway).

Sitting on its own, Partridge Cottage is a quiet and peaceful corner with beautiful views of Criffel and the Lake District. South facing and sunny (sometimes!) the site is perfect for reading a book, watching the wildlife or simply doing nothing.

The site is part of a bigger field with a mowed path for walking round and enjoying. Wild life is plentiful with birds, owls and bees all encouraged to make a home in the woods here. The hard site ground is grassed, well mowed, well drained and suitable for large caravans and motor homes.

Cycling, fishing and bird spotting are all close by (a Whitethroat spotted by one of our mountain bikers was a new one to us).

Have a seat in a jet fighter at Dumfries and Galloway Aviation Museum only 3 miles away. It is excellent and well worth a visit. Have a dram at The Globe Inn famous for being Robert Burns favourite howff (a howff is a favourite meeting place or haunt, generally a pub).

In the countryside but only four miles from Dumfries we are handy for the thriving shopping and tourist villages of Castle Douglas, Moffat (famous for its special toffee) and Thornhill (which still have some small quaint village shops).

Sweetheart Abbey, Dumfries Museum and the Camera Obscura only minutes away by car. The local bus stops at the  main road and can take you local or if you fancy further a field to Glasgow/Ayr.  The 7 Stanes, Mabie, Ae and Dalbeattie and the Galloway Forest trails are all excellent for cycling, mountain biking, dog walking and walking. Whilst out look out for the Red Kites and other wildlife. 

Sandyhills, Kippford and Rockcliffe are easy to reach picturesque Coastal villages.

For the little ones there is Dalscone Farm Fun and Mabie Park Farm both with indoor and outdoor play areas. For old  and young there is Cream o Galloway and the Cocoa Bean Co.

The site is able to take long caravans and is particularly suitable for Motorhomes.

Peace and Tranquility

Only just over two weeks back from our 2nd visit to this beautiful site this year. Have been going normally twice a year for about 4 or 5 years and could never tire from the views and peace and quiet. Andy and Julie keep the site immaculate. The grass is kept short and is lifted so no trailing into van. On our last visit of 2 weeks the grass was cut at least 3 times. The floral displays are a sight to behold and are always being added to. The site is so peaceful and private. The final access is up a narrow road but it is completely straight. With a fresh water point at both the top and bottom of the site this saves a bit of walking. The grey water and toilet disposal point is as good as any I have seen on a C L. Andy and Julie are always about but never obtrusive. Look forward to April or May next year for our next visit.

Peace be with you

Just spent eight nights at this lovely CL with great scenery. Hardstanding pitches with no facilities (that suits us as we like to use our own) 16amp. Relaxing and peaceful, yet only about 3.5 miles from Dumfries. We would definitely return if in the area.

Excellent Site

Excellent CL, immaculately kept and plenty of space, well laid out facilities, super views of the pond just over the fence to the mighty Criffel in the distance. Owners very friendly and helpful. Wish we had started using this site earlier, we will be back.

Lovely site

Lovely site, peaceful, spotless and well maintained. A good site for a relaxing few days away. The site charges £12 a night in low season and £14 in high season which is really good value if you have dogs and an awning like me, RUB.
