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

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

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.
