Beware the X5

Howslack Farm
This site has stunning views, is a great place for breaking up a long journey as its not far from the beaten track but still quiet and unspoilt, lovely walks on the doorstep and it easy to find. Mrs Long was lovely and helpful. However, you may have 2nd thoughts if you have young children as there was a BMW X5 that was frequently driven at breakneck speed along the narrow, single track lane that runs by the site. Since the road is a dead end and there was only a couple of farmhouses/residences down the lane from the site and the car travelled by at 'commuting' times I can only assume the driver is a local who regularly 'terrorises' the area.

a pleasant peaceful CL set in lovely countryside

Howslack Farm
We stayed one night recently. All necessary facilities. A really nice setting. Elizabeth, the owner, is lovely. Only a few miles outside of Moffat on the left hand side. We will definitely visit again. Moffat is a great base and has plenty of coffee shops, restaurants etc. Parking is free and there is usually enough. Very handy for the motorway yet far enough away that you cannot hear it.

Final site of the September Autumn Gold 2020 tour

Howslack Farm
This was an unexpected bonus extra night on the 2020 Autumn Gold September tour during the return home to S.West Scotland. It is in a beautiful valley and river location just a couple of miles on from the top end of Moffat. The booking was straightforward and easy to do and clear instructions given as how to arrive at the site. Yes the site is up a cul-de-sac lane which is narrow in some parts but very little traffic was using it during the stay so no problems and well worth the few minutes of concern about a vehicle coming the other way ... passing places exist anyway! The 5/6 hardstandings at the site are narrow for sure but there is plenty of space either side of them to pitch an awning if desirable ... a couple had picnic benches as well Didn't see any 'pools of water' on the hardstandings even though the arrival was in rain conditions. 2 Water taps were available and no more than a few metres from any of the hardstandings.The spotless and clean single shower and toilet amenity block was fine though I do agree there was a small area of flaky paint on one wall so a lick of paint would brighten it all up. The CDP and grey waste disposal was no problem at all and included a good length of hose attached to a water tap for cleaning down. On the evening of the stay the skies cleared revealing a plethora of stars to wonder at whilst listening to owls on the prowl. The following day dawned lovely and sunny with fingers of mist on the hills and above the line of the river. This site hit the mark and finished of the tour in delightful fashion. A Gem not to be missed and for sure is a 'return to' site

Lovely views but needs TLC

Howslack Farm
Terrific views and very peaceful. Good spacious washroom facilities. Limited manoeuvring space and hard standings very small. Our 7 metre caravan stuck out a bit. Some of the hard standings had pooled water. Would have struggled with an awning as grass looked as if had not been cut for some months. Definitely a site for smaller units. The only grey water point was the chemical disposal point that involved lifting the waste container nearly 30cm. All things considered expensive at £17 a night plus 50 pence for a dog and £1 for an awning. Needs more regular attention.
