General

  • Well-kept family-run park with views of Wigtown Bay
  • In a stargazing and birdwatching haven five miles from Wigtown
  • Immaculate and heated shower block with family room and free hot water

Wherever you pitch up at Drumroamin Farm Camping and Caravan Site in Dumfries and Galloway, be sure to leave some space for lying back and stargazing. This part of Scotland has some of the darkest skies in Europe (part of Dumfries and Galloway was made Britain's first Dark Sky Park), so is just the spot for galactic activities. And the phone connectivity is pitch perfect, so you can look up what you're looking up at and have the kids starstruck at your cosmic range of knowledge.

By day, the area around Drumroamin Farm is birdwatching – and fishing – land too and the site itself has pretty stellar views over Wigtown Bay and the surrounding hillsides from its open, level and well-drained camping field. It's about five miles from bookish Wigtown for a ramble around the secondhand bookshops: you could look for a book on astronomy…

And as for the camping? Facilities on the farm are immaculately maintained by the very friendly team and include a modern, roomy and heated shower and loo block with separate family/disabled room, and a dishwashing area with two coin-operated washing machines and a coin-operated dryer; as with the showers, the hot water for washing up is free.

Other considerate touches are evident all over at this friendly and popular park, like the indoor playroom and sitting area with TV, DVD player and books for more misty days, the freezer for guests' use (remember to label icepacks with your name) and the secure lock-up storage for bikes and boats (subject to availability). A large play area is adjacent to the site for the kids.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Facilities/activities including washing machines and tumble dryers are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

    A lovely, well kept campsite. Lesley is a fantastic hostess and made us feel welcome immediately. The facilities were spotless and well kept and our pitch was more than ample in size. We were down to see the Perseids and were blown away by the beautiful dark skies the area is famous for. Would definitely stay here again.

    Lesley was an amazing person who runs the site with her husband kept all the facilities spotless, easy to talk to to resolve any issues no matter how small,plenty of space for the kids & beautiful countryside to walk the dogs. Great views of the stars & milky way on clear nights as there's no light pollution. Great pitch site with ample room for the tent & 2 cars plus a trailer. Even over the Bank Holiday there was no queuing to use the showers or toilets. Have already booked to go back twice next year which I'm already looking forward to. Yes there no bar or shop but there's a fish and butchers van that comes on a Tuesday which has amazing things on & tastes beautiful or a local shop 5miles away. It's lovely and peaceful and we slept better than we do at home as it was so relaxing.

    Easy booking in on arrival.Helen gave me a tour of the facilities,showed me where the electric H/UP pitches were, told me the most sheltered ones and said I was free to pick my own.
    Facilities are excellent & spotlessly clean,always hot water in showers/ wash hand basins & wash up sinks. Wash up liquid,pan scrubs & cloths provided FREE.
    Plenty of information leaflets about days out -- or ask Helen who has a fund of knowledge on trips out, both local & further afield. Helen & her husband work tirelessly ensuring the site runs smoothly -- keep up the good work.
    I would not hesitate in recommending this site to anyone.

    Dog owners who cannot control their lap dogs from barking at the slightest sound, especially after 10pm. PS I am not anti-dog.

Forest track or quiet road cycling, birdwatching and standing stones are all around Drumroamin Farm Camping and Caravan Site, and there's loads of fishing available too in the local rivers, sea or forest park lochs. For a spot of history, wander round Whithorn Priory or St Ninian's Cave and chapel.

Take the pleasant walk from the campsite to the saltmarsh, mudflats and hills of the RSPB reserve Crook of Baldon if you're here for birdwatching, where species to spot include pink-footed geese, golden plovers and Icelandic whooper swans in summer.
