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.

My happy place.

Garlieston Caravan Club Site
I've just had my annual September visit to Garlieston. A perfect stay as always on this beautiful part of The Galloway Coast. There's always a friendly welcome, from the wardens, who are just so helpful and keep the site well maintained. There are some fantastic walks along the coast line from the village and further afield. Garlieston has a magical attraction, which keeps me coming back for more visits. I'd like to say a huge thank you to, the wardens, Ann and Martin for all the years that they've looked after us and wish them all the happiness in their retirement. - It won't be the same without them.

September stay

Site is at the end of a pleasant looking village looking onto the bay. Tide was out during daylight when we were there. Good food and beer in the one pub. Nice coastal walks and interesting military history , would stay again . Quiet site at night when we stayed ( September 2021 )

Pleasant well run site

Garlieston Caravan Club Site
A pleasant week, with excellent wardens, lovely views and decent walks from the site and nearby. Unlike other reviewers were not overly impressed with the nearby pub, which we found not to be the friendliest. But there are plenty of alternatives a short drive away. Our hopes for a peaceful week were also regularly shattered by a high number of very vocal, unruly small dogs. We are dog owners ourselves, and not usually put off by dogs barking, but the numbers of noisy dogs during our stay was exceptional, especially early mornings. Pitches are ample and level, with awning pitches on the main site set back from the waterfront, but still enjoying sea views, and excellent sunsets. Facilities were immaculate, if a little tired, with the shower cubicles in the walled garden area a bit of the small side with limited hanging space. It was on the whole a very pleasant site, but we will not be rushing back.
