- 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.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the A75, take the Annan West turnoff. Turn right onto the B724. After 4 miles, follow the signs to the left for Powfoot (you will see a Queensberry Bay brown sign). This road will take you over the hill to the Solway coast. Stay on the road, keeping the sea on your left. Go past the Powfoot Golf Hotel, the golf course, a small caravan park and the public car park (on your left) up to the gates of Queensberry Bay. Follow the signs to reception.
Birdwatching, cycling, walking or just chilling out are all in the area around Queensberry Bay Holiday Park. It's right on the Caerlaverock Nature Reserve, home to one N. Toad, and is on the Sustrans 7 cycle route linking Sunderland and Inverness.
It's also next door to Powfoot Golf Course; ask the team to arrange a round for you if you want. The Powfoot Golf Hotel is about a mile along the coast and is open to non-residents.
The town of Annan, with a Tesco, local shops and cafés, is four miles away; Gretna is eight miles and the historic town of Dumfries is 14 miles away. The park is about 30 minutes from Carlisle.
