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.
