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.

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.

Partridge Cottage, Dumfries.....a real gem

This CL is situated just 3.5 mls from the A75 (Dumfries Bypass), off the A701 ( Glasgow road). The last 1/2 ml is up a narrow but dead straight lane with a few passing places and is infrequently used by vehicles. The site has EHU and 5 level H/S pitches with a great view all the way to The Criffel and is really peaceful. The pitches are quite narrow, but wide enough for a caravan and step, and one has to cross lawned grass to get to each of them. There is a good dog walk of over 1/2 ml on a mowed path in the field in front of the site. Andy and Julie, the site owners are a font of knowledge about places to visit locally. The local lanes are quiet and good for cycling, and there's mountain bike trails at Ae Forest, 6 mls away, Mabie and at Drumlanrig House. There are lots of places to visit in the vicinity, Lochmaben and Caerlaverock Castles, Sweethearts Abbey, The Creighton in Dumfries but to name a few. There's a Morrisons and 2 Tesco Extras, an Aldi & a Lidl at Dumfries for provisions and fuel. A great place for a restful break away from it all and a bargain at £12 pn. We would definitely use this site again when staying in this area.

Great CL in lovely area - we will return

Spent 4 nights here Aug 2017. It was perfect for us - quiet, great location and good walking / touring easily accessible. Lovely views over the area and all hard-standing with no levelling required. Appreciated the easy dog-walking on site for early and late walks, and surprised the owner was happy for us to walk around their own landscaped small lakes. Owner available but unobtrusive.

A Cracker

This site is the best for miles around. Only 10 minutes from the centre of Dumfries. Hard standing pitches, no levelling required. Grass kept neat and tidy, beautiful views and a large field with a circular pathway for dog walking. Owners friendly and unobtrusive but helpful with advice and knowledge. We do not normally visit a CL twice as we prefer to explore but have made an exception in this case as it ticks all the boxes in the area.
