Hidden in a walled garden beside a river, and screened with beautiful old trees, this perfectly petite site was once the grounds of a mansion on the former Balkail estate. Seclusion does not come at the expense of convenience, though - it’s only a hundred yards to the shops and services of the small village of Glenluce.
All pitches at Glenluce Holiday Park come with electric hook-ups as standard, and on top of the essentials for ablution and laundry, there’s a heated indoor pool (a small additional charge applies) and children’s playground. Guests also have access to free trout fishing at the other site in the Whitecairn and Glenluce Holiday Parks group, just over a mile away.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

The Galloway Forest has been named the UK’s first ever Dark Sky Park - the lack of light pollution means that over 7,000 stars are visible on a cloudless night - and its 300 miles of trails should keep even the keenest of walkers and cyclists busy. A huge variety of sporting pursuits take place locally, from the more sedate, including fishing, golf and pony trekking, to adrenaline-pumping water and adventure sports, with some unusual options such as mountain balling on offer.
Foodies will lap up the smokehouses, whisky distilleries and quality restaurants around and about, and kids can live out their own Willy Wonka fantasy making chocs at the nearby Cocoabean factory.
It’s also an easy trip to Scotland’s most southerly point to scale the Mull of Galloway lighthouse, tour the bijou RSPB centre and enjoy a refresher in the coffee shop perched on the cliff edge, with views across to the Lake District and the Isle of Man.
