Why stay here ...

An ideal location for a relaxing holiday, Garlieston Club Site is both peaceful and picturesque. Divided into two sections for choice of comfort, one section of the caravan park offers beautiful views overlooking the bay, while the other provides a far more secluded and sheltered space for those who enjoy extra privacy and quiet. All non-awning pitches and a limited number of awning pitches are located in the part overlooking the bay, while all pitches in the walled area accommodate awnings. 

Garlieston Club Site gives you easy access to the rural charms of Garlieston village, geared towards farming and leisure. Many of the attractive cottages in the crescents that wrap around the bay are holiday homes, and pleasure craft now share the harbour with a few fishing boats. The caravan site is well located for fishing, boating, cycling and walking, with adjacent access to a coastal path leading to the famed azaleas and rhododendrons of Galloway House Gardens. The sandy beach at Rigg Bay, where wartime Mulberry Harbours were tested, is an excellent place to spend a summer day. If you're happy to venture further afield, The Galloway Forest Park offers 300 square miles of beautiful moorland, lochs and mountain tops to explore.

A mobile fresh wet fish van visits this site, please ask the site staff for details.

Quiet and relaxing

This was our first time at this site and it did not disappoint. The wardens (Ann and Martin( were helpful and friendly, the facilities were always clean and tidy....and it was reassuring to see the measures put in place to allow us to use them during the coronavirus pandemic...we stayed on other non-CAMC sites on our trip and there are others that don't seem to care too much.....so well done. This is a great spot....it is quiet and relaxing and has easy access to some lovely walks and bike rides....so if that is what you want this is perfect....we do so we will be back.

We have returned to Garlieston several times a year for three years and we are never disappointed. The site is kept to a very high standard and Ann and Martin are friendly and helpful. There are plenty of nice walks and places to visit in the area with some beautiful scenery. The Harbour Inn in the village is a great pub where the staff are friendly and the food is excellent. The site has all measures in place to ensure it is COVID safe which is reassuring at this time. We will be visiting again soon and can highly recommend a visit to this site.

Loved this relaxing site. Lucky to get a seafront pitch. So relaxing watching the tide roll in and out entertained by the gulls and oyster catchers. The facilities were spotless if a little dated. Fabulous circular bike ride to Isle of Whithorn. After reading about the spooky cruggleton old church, was delighted to ride past it and take a photo, not brave enough to venture into the walled churchyard. Despite a rainy day we walked from site into Galloway House Garden and emerged into Rigg Bay and walked back along the stunning coastal path to site. Fabulous sunrise across the bay just the other side of the harbour. Loved strolling around the fascinating village. Can recommend the Harbour Inn if you want to eat out. Sorry to leave the area.

Really nice site and a very pleasant stay

We completed a 5 night stay at this site on 2nd September and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Both Ann and Martin were very kind and helpful and the site is really well kept and peaceful. It was a great base for us to visit a lot of local locations and we saw some wonderful sunsets from the harbour and the kids loved the crabbing. We will definitely be returning.
