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 (Prosecco 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 loos, 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.

    My wife and myself liked this holiday park and the area. Also we enjoyed watching all the lovely animals that are kept at the park. There was a friendly welcome to the park on our arrival and information given.

    Disliked: 

    First of all, the approach road from the hotel to the public car park is diabolical with pot holes all over the so called road. Wasn't very happy bringing our expensive caravan and car down this part of the road. To be fair though, the local council probably own this road so should maintain it to a more reasonable standard, so we don't blame Queensberry Holiday Park for this

    The grass on the touring pitches was in need of a cut as this was really to long all other areas were cut.

    Being elderly we found it difficult to actually get on the beach due to the water being at the end of the pathway down to the beach, we are not Olympic long jumpers.

    The wet room power showers were great, but it was hard to get dressed after having a shower as all the floor gets wet.

    Dogs are welcome on site, but we didn't see one doggy doo bin on the site.

    Disliked: 

    My wife and I travelled over 300 miles from Cromer in Norfolk in very windy conditions in a motorhome, when we reached this site we thought it perfect to get off the road get a rest and continue our journey the next morning, little did we realize that as we couldnt give them a mobile phone number we were told we couldnt stay ,
    we went on to find Hoddon Castle about five minutes away which was a delight and had no concern about even asking for a mobile phone number, where we spent a restful night and carried on our journey the next day, nil points from a very tired and dissappointed couple Queensbury Bay!

Family pod we stopped in was better than we thought. ... 31/05/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom jason_h292992 Confirmed

  • Camping pod
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Family pod we stopped in was better than we thought. Plenty of room for two adults. TV kettle and microwave inside which was very helpful. Shower and toilet blocks were very well looked after and one major point we stayed here. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Shop is OK for those little things that you have forgotten but well stocked. We were lucky because we had good weather and the location of the wigwam was perfect, right on the front of the park so views were very good. Nearby Annan is a nice little place to wander around for an hour or so. Park is very quiet and a great place to relax. If you get good weather then it will be more amazing.

    Disliked:
