Why stay here ...
Isabel and George look forward to welcoming you to Mains of Machermore Farm. Our Farmhouse is adjacent to the CL site, so we are on hand to assist if required. Our aim is to make your stay with us everything you would wish from a modern CAMC Certificated Location.
On the site, each of the five serviced pitches have hardstanding with a grass area, water tap and grey water drain. Five electric hook ups are also conveniently located for ease of use. The "Wee Hoose" contains a shower, toilet and wash hand basin for exclusive use of the CL. Wifi is also available as well as an excellent TV reception.
Mains of Machermore is a family run farm situated a mile from the market town of Newton Stewart, also known as the Gateway to the Galloway Hills. The CL site benefits from lovely views of the surrounding hills as well as our Belted Galloway cattle, other livestock and wildlife which live here on the farm. We are always delighted when our summer visitors of swallows and swifts return each year.
Close by there are an abundance of activities. Being the Gateway to the Galloway Hills there are lots of walks with a Walking Festival every year in May. Wigtown, Scotlands Booktown, is a 15 minute drive away with the annual Book Festival that happens at the end of September which usually has around 500 different events over the course of ten days. Horse riding is less than a mile away, 7 stanes mountain bike course approximately 5 miles, Laggan Outdoor Activity centre (15 minute drive), golf courses, beaches, places of historical interests are all close by. We are also on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park and Dark Sky Park which gives wonderful opportunities to see the solar system in all its splendour.
