Drummucklock, Gatehouse of Fleet....Just grand.

This farm site has 5 aligned H/S pitches with great views overlooking the Fleet Estuary. It is accessed from a layby on the right of the A75 travelling from the east, however on arrival one has to book into the estate office of the Cardoness Estate. To do this you have to drive in the second gate west of the TEAPOT roadside cafe which has only a small "Cardoness" sign.There are good walks on the estate, and one can park by the estate office, where there is also a small shop. The area has lots of places of interest close by such as Gatehouse, Kirkcudbright and Loch Ken. Although the site is close to the A75 there is little road noise. We were unable to get a television signal, however others on the site managed. Phone recrption was good, and although the website shows wifi access one has to go to the estate office for it to work. We really like the site and thought it was a bargain at £10 pn. Will definitely return in the future.

Back Again

This site is just perfect for those wanting peace and tranquillity, the site itself sits up above and away from the A75 with views over the Fleet estuary. Included in the price is access to the grounds and all the facilities of the Cardeness Estate, with fabulous beaches walks and views. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff of the Cardeness Estate, who treat you as if your part of the family. To sum up its just a perfect place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Dumfries and Galloway.

Perfect for Exploring Dumfries & Galloway

What's not to like about this site? Well it has almost everything we could have wished for. The welcome was wonderful, the site is located overlooking the Fleet Estuary where just over the A75 you have access to the main Cardoness Estate which is yours to explore with its secret bays and lovely beaches. There is a little shop for essential's and within a few minutes drive is the lovely little town of Gatehouse of Fleet. Within 3/4 of an hour you can be exploring the mountain roads and views of Galloway Forest Park or nearer to the site explore the rugged bays, beaches and quiet coastal roads. If you just want to relax go down to the Cardoness Estate and explore the woods lake and beaches. Nearby Creetown is well worth a visit especially the Gem Museum and its excellent coffee shop. The staff and owners of the CL were so friendly and made us feel so welcome we booked in for 2 days and stayed 2 weeks. One minor issue were the farm dogs which if spooked could imitate the Hound of the Baskervilles at 2 or 3 in the morning but hey this shouldn't spoil the wonderful experience of staying on the Cardoness Estates CL. We will be back as we had such a wonderful time there.

Excellent value

We visited this site in late May 2015. The directions given are a bit confusing, we were back and forwards along the A75 a couple of times before stopping and phoning the holiday park for help. The easiest way if you are travelling westwards on the A75 is look out for a roadside cafe called the TEAPOT in a layby on the left, about a mile & a half after passing the turn off for Gatehouse of Fleet. If you reach the cafe you have just passed the entrance to Drummuckloch on the right. A further 200 yards along the A75 is the entrance to Cardonness holiday park on the left. No large sign with the name & listing all the facilities, as with most parks, just a small sign with 1 word CARDONNESS.

Nice quiet site

This was our first experience of a CL and only our 2nd trip in our caravan. There was only one other caravan on the site and luckily for us they were able to advise that we needed rock pegs to use with the hardstanding (newbie mistake) when we were struggling to get the awning pegged in. We spoke to the office before we arrived and arranged to site the van before going to pay so we didn't have to worry about turning round with the van if we missed the office. The site is next to a farm so there was some noise from that but it wasn't intrusive. The views were lovely and it was a very peaceful stay.
