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 CL

Partridge Cottage
Booked this CL to break our journey home from The Highlands, what a find. So tidy, peaceful and quiet. Hand sanitiser on all taps, EHU etc. Great field with a mown track to walk the dog he loved it. Hard standings for the vans, but mown collected grass surround. Handy for shops petrol etc, and touring the area. Not met the owner yet but was pleasant and helpful on telephone. Sure we will stay here again if in this area, thoroughly recommend.

Good to be back

Partridge Cottage
How good it was to be back again at one of our top two CL's. Went back for 3weeks as soon as sites reopened. Site still as good as ever and so well maintained. There are hand gel containers at both fresh water points, waste and chemical toilet emptying points as well as one at every electric hook up. Hope to get back again in the next few weeks.

Beautiful Site

Partridge Cottage
Stayed here for a week from 16 Aug 2020. Beautiful site with stunning views across to the North Lake District. Julie and Andy were very friendly and helpful. They keep the site and adjacent field in beautiful condition. It's everything we look for in a CL site. Andy gave us some great local information and we visited some places we would never have found without his tips. The site is a great location, there are so many places you can get to from here. If you are looking for a beautiful quiet CL in this area you will enjoy this site.

Peace and Tranquility

Partridge Cottage
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.
