  • Tent pitches overlooking a pond and electric pitches for tourers
  • Woodland paths and trails for nature spotting on site
  • Six miles from Dumfries and near the 7stanes MBT trails

Deer me! Wildlife watchers, walkers and small folk will find this roomy woodland Dumfries and Galloways park a right tonic for tired souls: pods, waterside pitches, fishing in the mill pond…and scores of species to spot including deer, foxes, red squirrels and over a hundred species of bird (some are rare, so don’t get twitchy if you don’t see them all).

Surrounded by a working farm and almost 300 acres of wooded parkland, Barnsoul Caravan Park has woodland paths and trails for the determined nature spotter; kids can get in on the action too by using the park’s Wildlife Spotter and Barnsoul Trail activity sheets. (Make it a condition that they have to fill in the sheets before you let them loose on the Big Wood natural playground: it’ll give them a nice dollop of motivation.)

Take your pick from a tent pitch overlooking the pond, an electric pitch for your wheels, or some restful accommodation already there when you arrive: Barnsoul has a family camping pod with fishing pond views and heated pods overlooking the Old Water Valley and with picnic bench, fridge, toaster and kettle (you only need to bring your sleeping bag).

The pods each come with their own firepit and disposable barbecues are allowed in the camping fields: just ask on-site wardens Rita or Brian for blocks to keep barbecues off the grass.

Facilities are restful too: a new campers’ kitchen; picnic benches; shower block with individual cubicles, vanity unit and free hot water; chemical loo disposal points; a launderette and an outside drying area.

Still too much energy from the junior campers? Barnsoul is only six miles from Dumfries and within easy driving distance of the 7Stanes mountain bike centres. Grownups might also like to know that the park is four miles from Crocketford with a village shop and two hotels for meals, and that there’s a Tesco and a Morrisons in Dumfries.

Open from 1 Mar to 31 Dec
