Dog Noise is not gone

Drummuckloch
This is a lovely CL stayed 2 nights but the dog barking/howling at 2am 4am and 6am is not relaxing. If you are a deep sleeper it will be lovely but not if you sleep light you won’t get much sleep.

Very nice site , no dog noise

Drummuckloch
Currently in the middle of a 7 day stay at this charming CL, although being in close proximity to a farm the noise is minimal, just noise from baying cattle at times in the evening , no barking dogs now. What do people expect if the CL is next to a working farm , I would 100% book again as it provides a good base with good access .

Great CL but spoilt by noise

Drummuckloch
This is basically a good CL and we have stayed here several times over the past two years. However our latest stay in September 2019 was marred by the incessant barking from several dogs on the adjoining farm. We’re not the only visitors to have complained about this. Other reviewers have mentioned this problem, and during our stay another couple packed up and left early because of it. We complained to the Estates Office, and was told that the manager would “have a word” with the farmer, but nothing improved and two nights later it was as bad as ever. The dog barking woke us at 3am and kept us awake for over an hour. It just goes on and on. I know farmers keep dogs for several reasons including security, but this noise nuisance is just unnecessary and makes the CL unusable. We’re not the only visitors to wonder whether the farmer has started running a boarding kennel business. I will be submitting a formal complaint to the Club. Members choose CLs for, above all, peace and quiet. This essential factor is now missing and we will not use this CL again.

Definately Not Peace and Quiet

Drummuckloch
We booked 5 nights at this site on a recommendation and despite the great views, the lovely Cardoness estate park and the beautiful beaches close by, we only stayed 2 nights. We were put on pitch one which is the one nearest the farm house and next to the farm track and probably would have had more peace and quiet sat on the M25. Throughout the day from early until late the tractor was constantly up and down taking what smelt like silage from the cow sheds across the field, it is a working farm so some noise is expected so we could have put up with this and to be fair we were out most of the day. The cows mooing and the cockerel crowing from first light is country life and also expected but what really finished it for us was the dogs. We have a dog so don't moan about a dog barking now and again but the dogs at the farm (I'm sure its a kennels) barked throughout the night and once one barked the others howled for hours on end. If this had just been a one off ok but on both nights we struggled, getting hardly any sleep at all which was not what we had booked this site for so we gave up and moved on. The warden didn't seem at all surprised when I told him we were leaving and without any apology just gave me the money back for the 3 nights I cancelled. As we left one of the other caravaners said they had been on pitch one on another visit and had been warned there could be dog noise but this warning wasn't given to us. They were now on pitch 5 and said the noise didn't carry that far so they were undisturbed and like most of the other reviewers were enjoying a peaceful break.

Drummucklock, Cardoness. Gatehouse.....back again

Drummuckloch
Returning after 3 yrs and it's just as good as it was during our first visit, and I thought that I'd add a little to my previous review. This is a basic CL with 5 Hardstanding pitches and EHU. It lies just off the A 75 about 3 mls west of Gatehouse of Fleet, up a farm drive. The site overlooks Skyreburn Bay and the Waters of Fleet, and although quite close to the road the traffic noise is not very intrusive. There is no dog walk as such from the site but a quiet back lane is close by, without having to walk on the main road. For those unfamiliar with the site one does have to drive to Cardoness Estate offices, which is about 1/2 ml away, to book in and be directed to the site. There are lots of places of interest within easy driving distance, such as Cardoness Castle at Gatehouse, Threave Garden, House and Castle at Castle Douglas, McLellands Castle and Broughton House (N/T) at Kirkcudbright... the Artist Town.....as well as Wigtown...the Book Town.... and the Whithorn peninsular. There are small supermarkets locally and larger ones including Aldi at Newton Stewart. There is plenty of opportunity for those wanting both long high walks, eg up Cairnsmore of Fleet, and short walks in the woods or through parks at Kirkcudbright & Gatehouse, and in the forest at Kirroughtree, which is also the location of one of the 7 Stanes Mountain Bike centres. A grand site for touring Dumfries and Galloway, and a bargain at just £12 pn. This is our second visit and we would not hesitate in returning.
