Why stay here ...

Sue and Les welcome you all to our new Sorbie School CL site which is situated in the grounds of the former primary school in the centre of Sorbie village which we have made our home. After spending most of our lives in central Manchester we fell upon this little gem, the village is very peaceful and everyone is friendly.

All our pitches are hard standing with a grassy area, and the site offers full services. We pride ourselves on our excellent heated shower facilities which consist of two showers, two toilets and a washroom, also a separate dish wash area.

Our site is an Adult only site for that perfect secluded and peaceful getaway; we boast great views and an abundance of wildlife, deer, foxes, badgers and numerous birds. The site lies immediately to the south of the Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park and on a clear evening you’ll see more stars than you could ever count and a wonderful look at our Solar System.

We are in a very central location which is served by a local bus route in to nearby Newton Stewart, Garlieston, Whithorn and Wigtown which all have lots of things to discover, and a great location to explore the surrounding areas, also a perfect stop over on your way to the ferry at Cairnryan or for your travels up the west coast.

There are many activities in the surrounding area; we have a cycling centre at Kirroughtree which has a 7stanes mountain bike course and some lovely walks, as well as being a recognised Stargazing Site. There is also Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre about a 30 minute drive away.

We have an Italian restaurant (The Pheasant) on our doorstep which serves first class food and Andrea and Morag always provide a warm welcome. There is a cosy pub in Garlieston that serves great pub grub and a Chinese and Indian restaurant in Newton Stewart. We also have a Gin Distillery that do tour and Gin tasting sessions all of these are on the local bus route. There are plenty of supermarkets and shops in the area.

We have the nearby Kilsture Forest, which is the largest patch of woodland in the open countryside of the Machars. It looks especially pretty in January, when the snowdrops are peeping through and in May, when the bluebells carpet the ground, also great dog walks in the surrounding area and we have provided a washing area for your “mucky pup” when he/she gets back.

As motor homers ourselves and have travelled around the UK and abroad, we have tried to create a clean site with modern facilities that we hope will not only make your stay pleasant and enjoyable, but will encourage you to revisit our beautiful area and CL site regularly!

For further details and booking information please see our website. Advance booking is advised at holiday or peak season.

Sensational Sorbie

This site sets the benchmark. It is simply fabulous! It would be easy to bestow this CL with superlatives and compliments, every one being well deserved. We booked in for a stay over the Christmas and Hogmanay period and got back home feeling relaxed and replenished. The site is peaceful, surrounded by lovely countryside and near to many little coastal towns, villages and the spectacular, "Dark Skies" Galloway Forest with all its' cycle and walking trails. A bus route passes the entrance (where there's also an Italian restaurant). The facilities are IMMACULATE and modern, with 2 showers, 2 wc's and a seperate washing up area. Best of all - no push buttons in the showers! It's adults only with a practical and easy-to-use CDP and grey water waste, along with free green toilet fluid. The pitches are all equipped with water and 16A EHU, are hardstanding, with a grassed area. Special mention to the owners, Sue & Les. Not only are they welcoming and friendly, they helped us out, as we'd left our caravan step at home. After failing to purchase one en route (It was Hogmanay and everywhere closed!) a call to Sue, for a recommendation, she assured us not to worry, as they would "sort out something on our arrival" We were expecting a couple of building blocks or the like, but an hour after the phone call, we arrived on site to find Les has made us a 2 tier step complete with carpet treads! Amazing and once again, a very big thank you!

Just returned from our 3rd visit to Sorbie. It just gets better and better. Everything already said in previous reviews is true. It's a special CL in a wonderful area. Thank you to Les and Sue.

An amazing CL that sets the standard for others to follow. Clean, modern, welcoming with everything you might need. By far the best I have ever stayed on.

Super CL

Stayed for 1 night and what a great little spot. Peaceful. There was only one other visitor but even if full I'm sure it would be great. A warm welcome from Sue who showed us the facilities, which are more akin to an upmarket B&B or hotel than a campsite. There's a lovely washing up facility, 2 showers, 2 toilets and a washing area along with the usual campsite facilities. Absolute steal for £20. And at this time of year there are loads of brambles to be picked along the lane - an added bonus.

What a lovely, welcoming & peaceful CL site with brilliant facilities - well thought out. Every site should have a Sue & Les!! Best site we have been on. The added bonus being the food from The Pheasant (even takeaway) which was excellent! Sorbie Primary School - we'll be back!!!!!!
