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.

First time two day visit to Garlieston.

Have always wanted to visit this site and certainly not disappointed. Have never been able to get booked in and having been there I now realise why. It is ideal. Very well run and clean and tidy. It has everything at hand. Showers and toilets were well organised given current climate. From site there are Lovely walks along coast. Which suits us perfectly. There is A nice beach. A pub at hand which is great and very friendly. Didn’t eat but heard good reports. The beer was good. Site Is handy for us and of all club sites we have been to this is now tops.

Relaxing

Been arriving at garlieston for 15 years now and love the village and surrounding area. Was in main area due to our large van but always go for walled garden if available. area great for walking cycling. Petrol station shop great for shopping. Great natural honey sold there. Harbour inn great meals. Never used facilities as used our own. It’s the first time I have had bother with booming music coming from bottom flat next to the site. But they turned it down when I asked them too. Relief wardens where great and explained everything about the routine on site and gave out lots of information regarding the site. They where always on the go and kept us safe. The site is lovely and empty at this time of the year and would return in Oct but not in summer as busy. Have booked a lovely holiday house in garlieston as we feel safer doing this.

Quiet oasis by the sea and off the beaten track.

A most enjoyable late season stay at the site which affords great access to local walks and attractions. Handy for Logan Botanic Garden, Port Logan Fish Pond, Castle Kennedy, Wigtown, Isle of Whithorn etc etc. Nicely appointed site with two sections, one in walled garden and the other overlooking harbour so actual pitch is a bit down to chance/luck depending on what one is after. Nice Inn located 200m from Site entrance.

Perfect can’t beat it!!!

Have visited this site twice and spent 10 days each time. Can not fault the site at all very friendly wardens who will look after your needs no matter what, even take amazon deliveries for you. It’s peaceful very scenic and that’s just the bay and walled garden. Great for all people and family friendly if you are wanting adventure and To soak up the scenery if not then perfect for village walks and relaxing. Great pub the harbour inn just up the road which is dog friendly. 100% recommended this club site!!

Worst pitch ever

A very disappointing end to 3 weeks in Galloway in our van. We were pitched in the walled garden. (Vacant pitches on the main site were being reserved for large vans) One end of the van was a few feet away from a 10 ft wall. The other end 6 yards from 20ft high vegetation with the roadway in between. The site information mentions quiet and seclusion. This was not the case! Dog walkers from the main site used it as an area to walk their dogs, passing within a few feet of our van.When we tried to sit out by the van we were subjected to loud music and non stop dog barking from the houses over the wall. On the positive side we did enjoy coastal walks and a very pleasant meal in the Harbour Inn. We used our own facilities and cannot comment on those on the site
