The camping field

General

  • Spacious parkland with views over the Solway Firth and Lake District
  • Pools, Jacuzzi, sauna, café, bar and free wifi
  • Close to Scotland's most southerly golf course

Ever seen the film The Wicker Man? If at any point you found yourself admiring the stunning Scottish scenery among the sense of impending celluloid doom (understandable), you'll probably be interested to know that the scenic setting in question was the village of Burrowhead on the Solway Firth.

And in Burrowhead is Burrowhead Holiday Village, a park in this scenic setting that's in a spacious hundred acres of parkland with views over the Solway Firth to the Isle of Man and the hills of the Lake District. This is activity land – sea fishing, golf and coastal walks are all very close to hand – and there's plenty to do on site too as Burrowhead has an indoor and a summer outdoor pool, a Jacuzzi and a sauna.

Let the kids loose at the play area, crazy golf, amusement arcade, soft play area, ball pool playroom and toddler splash pool with slide; the park also has pitch and putt golf, a putting green, a snooker room with licensed bar, and an adults-only function room.

A shop is there if you want to buy food and fire up your own cooker, but if not, Burrowhead Holiday Village has a well-priced café serving big breakfasts and other meals. Drinks and entertainment are sorted at the Headland family bar, which also has free wifi.

Burrowhead Holiday Village has a private water supply and they recommend that guests boil the water before consumption.

Please note dogs or pets are not permitted in The Old Peat House guest room, but are welcome on the main site for a small fee.

    Clean, peaceful, friendly staff, overlooks the sea. Weather was good, having no mobile phone reception at the bottom of the campsite meant you could escape from day to day life, thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    We LOVED the setting here, waking up so close to the sea and surrounded by so much natural beauty was a massive plus. The site was so quiet and peaceful and the staff were all super friendly and the little shop had everything you could possibly need on a camping trip. Also the toilet facilities were so much better than most other campsites I’ve been to.

    Disliked: 

    The only bit we didn’t like was that we couldn’t stay longer!

    The views are amazing and the site is large enough not to feel too overlooked. The people running the site were very helpful and accommodating.

    Disliked: 

    The site itself has seen much better days and everything looks as though it has been abandoned for some time. With the right level of care and attention (and money spent of course) this site would and could be amazing!

    The bar was reasonably priced, however some of the 'locals' who drink in there were not accommodating of English people shall we say, and to most it would have felt a little intimidating, especially with the racist songs being sang by one particular group who quite frankly were old enough to know better.

    The 'spa' facilities, although free were run down and dirty and the Jacuzzi and sauna had seen much better days.

Local attractions

If you're up for some angling, cast off from rocks, boats or loch near Burrowhead Holiday Village; fishing off the rocks is allowed at the Burrowhead coast and at the local beaches.

This is top birdwatching territory too, so look out/up for birds when you're around this part of coast, and it's prime dark skies land for stargazing afterwards.

Popular attractions in the area are Bladnoch Distillery, Galloway Forest Park, the book town of Wigtown and the Cream o' Galloway amusement park and dairy farm producing topping ice cream.

Nearby Whithorn is where Christianity in Scotland evolved under the leadership of St Ninian; the Whithorn Story Visitor Centre and St Ninian's Cave are the main tourist draws.

Other nearby days out could include the 75 acres of child-friendly Castle Kennedy Gardens; a look at the inhabitants of Logan Fish Pond and of Monreith Animal World, and the zipwire, Segway and more at the activity centre of Laggan Outdoor.

Finally, the port of Stranraer is about 30 miles away: sail to Larne in Northern Ireland from here and drive along the coast to have a day in Belfast.
