  • Well-maintained park with superb views
  • Next to Powfoot Golf Course; four miles from Annan
  • 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 fab 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, including 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.

Dunlin electric hardstanding and grass touring pitch

Liked: Great quiet location. Lovely cafe . The site was spotless, the showers were fantastic, we usually use our own shower in our touring caravan but after hearing about the showers we tried them and they were definitely not like the average campsite showers 😀 . The staff were helpful and very friendly from the lady at check in to the bar staff to the guy cutting the grass. Hubby was happy with a golf course next to the campsite and our spaniel loved the beach which is easily accessible from the site. We will definitely return

Disliked: Nothing to dislike

Absolutely the best toilets and showers on any site! Very helpful,…

Dunlin electric hardstanding and grass touring pitch

Liked: Fantastic views over the Solway. Grass and whole site kept immaculate. Modern toulet block for tourers only. Toilet, shower, sink and seat in one room with plenty of hooks and hot radiator. Staff all seem to love what they do and were very happy, friendly and helpful. I couldn't book one but Sandside pitches are best of the whole site.

Disliked: Nothing, this is a great site
