General

  • Clean, safe family park five minutes' drive from Kirkcudbright
  • Heated outdoor swimming pool
  • Spectacular views over Kirkcudbright Bay

If you're off seawards to the artists' town of Kirkcudbright in Dumfries and Galloway, wend your way to Seaward Holiday Park for some arty scenes. It's a small and exclusive park just outside Kirkcudbright, with rather special views over Kirkcudbright Bay to Ross Island and its lighthouse… you should surely be tempted to break out the easel.

Seaward is family friendly, pet friendly and very friendly – you'll get a warm welcome here from the helpful team – and has a seasonal outdoor heated pool, an outdoor play area, TV and games room, small shop, wifi, a launderette and heated shower and toilet facilities.

Please note

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

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 26/05 and 28/08 (subject to weather conditions).

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Single-sex bookings of 4 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Very helpful friendly staff. Quiet at night. Calls of waders and songbirds. Being able to take a wander to the bay at low tide.

    Disliked: 

    Rows of caravans blocking sea view. Was hoping to have walked along the coastline a bit but access was not as expected from the photos.

Directions

Local attractions

Bring the family's bikes if you can, as the famed 7stanes forest trails at Dalbeattie and Kirroughtree are only 30 minutes away from and the Sustrans Route 7 passes right outside the park entrance. (If you haven't brought bikes, hire them just outside the Dalbeattie trail or near the Kirroughtree Forest visitor centre.)

By hike rather than bike, there's a wealth of walks around the coast, hills and forests of the area as well as an easy stroll to the sea, shingle cove and sandy beach of Dhoon Bay minutes from the caravan park.

Golfers have loads to pick from too including the championship Brighouse Bay course a short drive away along the coast; horse riding, a wildlife conservation park and activity centres are in the region, and the tasty chocolate factory of the Cocobean Company is only 10 minutes' drive away.

More gently, the harbour town of Kirkcudbright town has a good clutch of coffee shops and galleries in which to while away the day, as well as the Stewartry Museum with a good collection of works by local artists (there are quite a few). Also recommended is heading to the harbour to watch the fishing boats unload their catch – you might even come over all artistic yourself – and watch them, the yachts and the lifeboats leave Kirkcudbright Bay.

Finally, take a stargazing look at spectacular Galloway Forest Park, the UK's first Dark Sky Park and one of only four designated in all of Europe.

Must see
