General

  • Small and well-maintained park with superb views
  • Pampering spa with hot tub, sauna and more
  • Next to a beach nature reserve

Peaceful, quiet, relaxing and nature-filled breaks are the name of the game at Queensberry Bay Holiday Park, a small family-owned holiday park on the shores of Scotland's Solway Firth.

If pubs, clubs and loud entertainment are very much not your thing, you'll find all you need here at this top-end and popular park instead, from a very well-regarded pampering spa (champers in the hot tub, anyone?) to an excellent little campers' kitchen with first-class views across the bay.

The park also has excellently maintained showers and toilets, and a small licensed shop selling essentials like chocolate and the (also very well-regarded) Queensberry bacon rolls.

The Queensberry team is keen to point out that those looking for golden sands might be better off heading further west along the coast; the beach here, however, is a beaut nature reserve filled with grassy knolls and pools, and a breeding ground of the protected natterjack toad. It's just the spot for Spot and other dogs too as it's a perfect place for walking the pooch.

    always liked that area of Scotland and have holidayed in the area most of my life .nice clean site nice and quiet,lovely showers etc

    Disliked: 

    despite paying pitchup the full payment for my holiday £149 we were told on arrival that we owed £12 45,and that we had only paid£136 50pence only a small amount but we were pursued for the money and had it to pay since I had no proof with me of the actual amount we paid.it was never considered that I may have been telling the truth and has left a very bad taste .we were refused (as a result I believe) the refund of the deposit for the key and had to wait until we got home only after a phone call was the money put into my husbands bank account .I am awaiting a copy of my card statement so I can send it to the site and then they can decide who owes me a refund, as I said only a small amount of money but not an experience I would wish to repeat

A great place to stay 16/11/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom John P. Confirmed

  • Shoreside electric mixed touring pitch (adults only)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    It’s always a joy to stay at Queensberry. The great Adult(a big tick in our book) beach side pitches are roomy and have the most spectacular views. The staff are always very friendly and helpful and the facilities are ample and we have never had to wait to use them. The Wi-fi is a little restrictive as you have to buy data amounts which works out expensive. While the site is in a rural location we got 4g on our phones which was faster than the site can provide.

    Disliked: 

    2 upgrades for the future, 1. Better heating in the toilet & shower block 2. Make the shore side pitches hard standing, at this time of year the grass pitches are wet and a little muddy in places
