An ideal location for a relaxing holiday, Garlieston Club Campsite is both peaceful and picturesque. Divided into two sections for choice of comfort, one section of the campsite 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 Campsite 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 campsite 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 lovely site in a beautiful location

Garlieston Club Campsite
We had booked a non-awning pitch and were able to choose a pitch on the seawall which had stunning views across the bay. When we visited the Relief Site Managers were on site and they were very helpful (sorry, I can't remember their names!). The facilities were all spotlessly clean and pitches were spacious and well maintained. The Mulberry Harbour Exhibition adjacent to the site is worth a visit, especially as we stayed there a few days before the D-Day anniversary. The Harbour Inn is great for a drink and The Hive cafe sell lovely cakes. A lovely site and highly recommended.

A little Gem

Garlieston Club Campsite
Very reluctant to leave the glowing review I want to leave as it will mean I have less chance of being able to book a pitch next time. However Judith and Edgar are amazing wardens and nothing is too much trouble, from initially changing my booking then extending it they were so helpful. Garlieston site is split into 2 sections and we were fortunate to have a pitch on the harbour side directly overlooking the bay - amazing. The facilities though dated are immaculately clean and well maintained, endless hot water with great pressure. We visited the Harbour Inn for a birthday meal and were certainly not disappointed, in fact we returned for Sunday carvery. We also enjoyed a coffee and ice cream at The Hive cafe. Whilst in the area on advice from a member we visited The Mull of Galloway lighthouse, which you can climb - 115 steps - and amazing 360 deg views. There is also a cafe which serves lovely homemade food. The journey takes you along the coast and past New England Bay campsite (well worth the look). All in all an amazing place to visit and we will return, thank you.

Very friendly welcome

Garlieston Club Campsite
We stopped here primarily so that I could visit Wigtown. A joy. The bus stops just outside the site and we were able to leave the MH behind for the morning. There was also a really interesting exhibition about the Mulberry Landings in the village hall. The site is quite cramped but in a lovely location overlooking the bay and we enjoyed a lovely walk along the coastal path to a garden at Galloway House and back. Judith, the Manager was particularly warm and friendly.

Great Site

Garlieston Club Campsite
Lucky enough to get a pitch directly overlooking the harbour and bay - magnificent in every way. Toilet blocks are dated but they are very clean and the showers have fantastic pressure. Garlieston itself has the Harbour Pub which served a reasonable pint of Real ale and the food was fine without being spectacular. The Hive Cafe is fantastic with great coffee and lovely cheese scones.There are some very easy walks direct from the site. The small town of Wigtown has an annnual book festival and therefore has some fantastic and quirky book shops and although not really golfers but when in Scotland you have to play so we took the clubs and found St Medans Golf Club stunning and immaculate. Wonderful coastal views from every part of the course, hardly anybody playing on a Thursday meaning we can hack around to our hearst content. Great value at £25 a round for over 4 hours entetainment ! All in all a great 4 nights with good weather an added bonus.

Lovely stay

Garlieston Club Campsite
Not been to this area before, great campsite with good facilities and very helpful staff, kept very clean and tidy. We pitched in the walled garden where it was lovely and quiet. Interesting area, lot of history with the Mulberry Harbours. Good local walks, pub and coffee shop. All very dog friendly.
