General

  • Stay among the scenic Galloway Hills in south-west Scotland
  • On an 80-acre equestrian farm two miles from the beach
  • Farm tours, fishing and treasure hunts; 7stanes 300 metres away

Gorgeous gorgeous Galloway views… just part of what guests get with a stay at Gorsebank Camping Village, 80-acre equestrian farm in the Galloway Hills.

Pause for a perusal of the pics to see the full lushness of this Dumfries and Galloway and south-west Scotland site: thick with trees and shrubs that blaze colour in spring and autumn, and set among pasture, meadow and woodland bordering Dalbeattie Forest.

As you’d imagine, this is top territory for active outdoorsy types, with cycle paths clsoe by, and the famed 7stanes mountain bike trails accessible only 300 metres away at the Dalbeattie trailhead. Feeling faint at the very thought? Laze on the small beach at Rockcliffe is a few miles away, then take the gentle stroll a mile or so to Kippford to idle by the estuary and watch the yachts coming in.

Coarse fishing is available on site for a small extra charge if you’d prefer to keep the energy levels nice and low during your stay, and you can entertain the kids with ease on site too, on the farm experience tour, adventure path and the intriguing-sounding hide and seek hill... A nature treasure hunt and bike hire are available for an extra charge.

Barbecues and campfires are allowed; there’s a heated kitchen for indoor food prep, and the site amenities are kept spotless by the dedicated Gorsebank team: small wonder that a guest has pointed out that ‘Everything about this place is fantastic’…

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Facilities were spotless and the ambience of the whole place was serene. It was our first time camping and even building the tent in the rain didn't detract from our to.e here. Beautiful pitching area with a lovely view. I hear it even better on clear nights. We will definitely be back.

    Quiet and spacious campsite, amazing facilities (the heated kitchen was very appreciated and the showers are better than at home), very nice location. Stayed in a timber tent with my 14 year old son and we loved it.

Local attractions

Although the award-winning 7stanes are a favoured spot of experienced mountain bikers, much of them are suitable for all levels of cyclist, from families and beginners to the truly hardy types. Hire a bike at the farm then pedal the short distance to the Dalbeattie 7stances trailhead for access to the trails on this part of the circuit: the seven and a half-mile Ironhash Trail into the forest is the easiest one to tackle.

If that’s not your thing, set off in to the forest for a wander, to spot herons, grebes and damselflies around Plantain Loch (about 10 miles from base if you’re up for the hike), or to take one of the waymarked paths of a mile and up. For watery pursuits, sailing is available at Kippford a few minutes’ drive away and at Loch Ken 20 minutes' drive inland; sea, game and coarse fishing are all close by.

For family days, the local ice cream factory (15 minutes) and chocolate factory (20 minutes) should see small guests satisfied, while grownups can investigate the local brewery, distillery and acclaimed farm shop for a fine selection of local produce.
