Fishing lake

General

  • Gretna country park with fly fishing and clay pigeon shooting
  • Over 100 acres with three fishing ponds: rods available on site
  • Shooting tuition, shop and café

Found a great catch or fancy a shotgun wedding? Sorted: this fab shooting and fishing site’s 10 minutes from Gretna Green.

Spread over 100 acres of grounds in the Dumfries and Galloway countryside, Westlands Country Park combines outdoor activities with fine natural surrounds: there are three fishing ponds here for starters, with some whoppers weighing in at 12lb (catch and release or keep a few to barbecue for supper). Rods are available on site and tackle shops are a 25-minute drive away in Carlisle.

You won’t find the clay pigeons as tasty as the trout but the shooting’s a lark, with the faux-birds being launched from a 140-foot tower. Novices can book a session with an instructor, but if you’ve got a shotgun licence you can hone your skills with some tuition or just head for the traps (booking essential).

The site has a café serving hot food from 9am and a small shop for basics… it’s hungry work all that shootin’ and fishin’, after all… And even if you’re not planning any nuptials, Gretna has pubs, eateries and supermarkets for stocking up.

    Communication with reception was brilliant. We were running late for checking in so called to let them know. They sent a map of the park and the pitch number we were allocated. The pitch was too small for our 25ft caravan but they were not to know how big it was. It was not a problem for us to move to a bigger one as it was quiet. The pitches each had water, waste, electric and a light which made it a lot easier when arriving in the dark.
    Toilet and shower facilities were modern, spotless and lovely and warm
    The park itself is in the process of a lot of upgrading but this did not impact on our stay. Once finished, the new shop, restaurant and bar will look fantastic. That paired with the new lodges being installed along side existing ones will make it an even nicer place to stay. The touring pitches are already as good as they can be really.
    We were well aware that there would be noise from the shooting range as this is advertised as a main attraction here so this did not bother us.

    Disliked: 

    The only complaint i have is that the signage around the park was lacking. We assumed the large bins close to the shower block were for tourer usage. We also stumbled upon the chemical disposal point, which was in a handy place but no signage to say what it was. The shooting range is quite obvious once you are in the area but again, no signs.

    Late arrival - nobody answered the telephone number listed on door. Just by luck one of the wardens was on his way out of the park just after we arrived & was able to give us directions to our pitch & orientate us to the park.

Local attractions

You don’t have to confine your fishing to the ponds: head to Port Carlisle (35 minutes) for sea fishing from the Solway estuary banks, or 55 minutes to Bassenthwaite in the Lake District.

Closer to home, Westlands is a 10-minute drive from Annandale Distillery for those who care to celebrate their fishing or shooting prowess with a single malt: tours are available every day and the distillery also has a café serving afternoon teas and regional food including haggis, plus Scottish and local craft beers and ciders… and a fine selection of whisky, of course.

It’s a 40-minute trip to Bowness-on-Solway, at the tip of the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; walk the Hadrian’s Wall Trail all 73 miles to Tyneside if you fancy it, or march a shorter section and picnic on the walls like legionaries did.

Some fine family-friendly walks start from Burgh-by-Sands (35 minutes) and Silloth (50 minutes), taking in the (alleged) resting place of Edward I, Hammer of the Scots, and the wildlife of the wetlands; various do-in-a-day bike routes start from Carlisle, Kirkbride (35 minutes) and Silloth to see the region from the saddle.

If you’re seeking more pulse-racing stuff, try flyboating nine metres over the water or jetskiing at Wetjets in Dumfries (25 minutes).

Must see

  • World Famous Old Blacksmith's Shop Centre (3.9 miles)
  • Carlisle Castle (11.6 miles)
  • Robert Burns Centre (18.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Wordsworth House and Garden (25.3 miles)
