Located on an 80-acre equestrian farm in the Galloway Hills in south-west Scotland, Gorsebank Camping Village is a great location for families and those enjoying outdoor pursuits.
We offer civilised 'wild camping' pitches situated on a secluded, private ridge overlooking farmland and forest. You can unload your car 10-25 metres from your pitch and parking is 30-45m from the pitches to give you a sense of the wilderness.
There's loads for kids to do including a farm experience tour and a nature treasure hunt (a small charge applies) as well as hide and seek hill and an adventure path. Bike hire and coarse fishing are also available on site for a small additional charge.
The site is close to beaches, mountain bike trails, family attractions, castles and culture, excellent local food producers, and has lots of varied walks and stunning wildlife.
Gorsebank is in a great location with a real feel of the wilderness.

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.
