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.

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.

Another visit....a lovely place.

Garlieston Caravan Club Site
Another visit to one of our favorites. As always the site was in excellent condition and the facilities spotlessly clean thanks to the hard work of your hosts Anne and Martin ......... both are always cheerful and it seems nothing is too much trouble. Even accepting our Amazon stuff while we were out enjoying ourselves. If you are looking for peace and quiet in a lovely place this is for you. We have booked again already.

Fantastic location

Garlieston Caravan Club Site
We stayed for two nights on our Scottish trip. Our pitch was located in the walled garden which did not have a sea view but was secluded, spacious and very quiet. The warden team could not do enough for us including delivering our Amazon delivery bringing forgotten essentials.Nice walks along the shores with a great information centre. Highly recommend.
