Alan Rogers Review

An ideal location for a relaxing holiday, Garlieston Caravan and Motorhome Club site is both peaceful and picturesque. Divided into two sections for choice of comfort, one section of the site 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. The site has 60 grass/hardstanding pitches all with 16 amp electricity.

Garlieston 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 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.

N.B. Non-members may join on site and make a substantial saving on pitch fees, please speak to site staff for more details and to check pitch availability before arrival.
