What's not to like about this site? Well it has almost everything we could have wished for. The welcome was wonderful, the site is located overlooking the Fleet Estuary where just over the A75 you have access to the main Cardoness Estate which is yours to explore with its secret bays and lovely beaches. There is a little shop for essential's and within a few minutes drive is the lovely little town of Gatehouse of Fleet. Within 3/4 of an hour you can be exploring the mountain roads and views of Galloway Forest Park or nearer to the site explore the rugged bays, beaches and quiet coastal roads. If you just want to relax go down to the Cardoness Estate and explore the woods lake and beaches. Nearby Creetown is well worth a visit especially the Gem Museum and its excellent coffee shop. The staff and owners of the CL were so friendly and made us feel so welcome we booked in for 2 days and stayed 2 weeks. One minor issue were the farm dogs which if spooked could imitate the Hound of the Baskervilles at 2 or 3 in the morning but hey this shouldn't spoil the wonderful experience of staying on the Cardoness Estates CL. We will be back as we had such a wonderful time there.
We visited this site in late May 2015. The directions given are a bit confusing, we were back and forwards along the A75 a couple of times before stopping and phoning the holiday park for help. The easiest way if you are travelling westwards on the A75 is look out for a roadside cafe called the TEAPOT in a layby on the left, about a mile & a half after passing the turn off for Gatehouse of Fleet. If you reach the cafe you have just passed the entrance to Drummuckloch on the right. A further 200 yards along the A75 is the entrance to Cardonness holiday park on the left. No large sign with the name & listing all the facilities, as with most parks, just a small sign with 1 word CARDONNESS.
