General

  • Dog-friendly site 15 minutes' walk from Portpatrick village centre
  • A 15-minute drive from Stranraer; 25 mins from Cairnryan ferries
  • Close to the start of the Southern Upland Way walking trail

For hols with spectacular scenery, lots to do and accommodation that’s welcoming for the whole family, head along to Sunnymeade Caravan Park, a large dog- and family-friendly Dumfries and Galloway site, 15 minutes’ walk (or five minutes’ drive) from the pretty seaside village of Portpatrick.

This is a quiet site in scenic countryside, a 15-minute walk from the ruins of Dunskey Castle on cliffs overlooking the Irish Sea. On a good day, Ireland can be clearly seen, so make the most of seaside strolls and drink it in. Lengthier wanders are within easy reach too: Portpatrick is the start of the 212-mile Southern Upland Way.

Active types not up for two-legged excursions of that type can opt instead for golf, sea fishing and cycling – all are popular hereabouts, and there’s a golf course within five minutes’ drive (or 20 minutes’ walk) of base. Quieter times can be had with peaceful saunters along the sands of the stunning Killantringan Bay, a beach with its very own waterfalls, overlooked by a lighthouse.

Anyone who’s keeping eyes out for festivals should time stays to coincide with Portpatrick’s folk festival or the RNLI lifeboat week. Those more interested in switching off and having some down time, on the other hand, are well catered for on site, where the facilities – a laundry room, a toilet block with showers, and free wifi – have been kept low key to maintain the peaceful vibe.

Feels like campers are second class to the cash cow static caravans.15/08/2021

  • Ruff Camping non-electric grass tent or motorhome pitch (sea view)

    Location.

    Disliked: 

    The building site I’m adjacent field and storage of materials in the camping field meaning there were tracked vehicles in and out of the camping field. The noise of tractors meant this wasn’t a visit you could stay on the campsite relaxing all day. Took several minutes to drive on to the field after a wet day due to the deep mud created by tracked vehicles.

    Toilets were very poor. One door to a cubicle in the gents couldn’t be opened easily because the door was too tight a fit - took me nearly five minutes to get out as there wasn’t no handle on the inside and no gap at the top. One door had no lock on it, leaving one serviceable cubicle. The rest of the toilet block was pretty yuk.

    Very rough and extremely tough/hardy grass in field - could damage the extremely thin ground sheet of modern tents.

    I hope this will all be addressed by the time we return next year as the extension to the static caravan part of the site will be completed by then.

A place to pitch your tent with bonus of a toilet and shower nearby.12/08/2021

  • Ruff Camping non-electric grass tent or motorhome pitch (sea view)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The site is close to Portpatrick. If you are happy with very basic camping then the site is fine. It is basically a field where the grass has been cut next to the existing caravan site. It is quiet and at the back you have views of the sea. It is essentially wild camping except that you can walk to the caravan site and use their toilet and shower. The site is dog friendly and cheap! The toilet facilities are old but they have painted them up and made them fun with ornaments and they were cleaned regularly. Lady at reception friendly and helpful. There is also a laundry room on the main site and a trampoline for kids.

    Disliked: 

    It is a long walk to the toilet block. The camp site/field is next to the existing site and is also next to a building site where more caravans are being located. The noise from the site wasn’t too bad but not very pretty. More annoying we’re the workers from the campsite who drive right up to the tents early in the morning to pick up the litter the other campers had left. There is only one shower working in the shower block which was a bit awkward when you have kids as you are all waiting on the one shower. There is only one water pipe in the main campsite which is really just a hose. No bin in campsite.

Not a touring site - more suitable elsewhere11/08/2021

    Was near to the town, and only a short walk into town.
    A fair walk to the disused railway track and to the coast, overlooking a couple of other sites

    Disliked: 

    We turned up, and were giving a pitch with no electric when we arrived on pitch, so tried to move to a new one - where the electric box was not working. Had to park on a bare gravel/earth base 8inch below normal surface being excavated for another static caravan. Overlooked and packed in.
    The toilets - were like a step back into the 80s, supposedly funny words on the walls - one shower working, with a piece of non slip plastic on the floor and a fluffy mat - and wires hanging out of a dubious ceiling for the next door shower. Some one had cleaned the toilets but the quality of the provision for the price was well below expectations.
    It was so below expectations the next morning, we filled with water and went and found another site foregoing any refund.
    My advice - there are many sites in the area - this one should not be listed as a touring site.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Energy-filled kids along for the hols? Never fear, there’s lots to do round here: the site’s a 15-minute drive from Agnew Park, an adventure park with boating lake, miniature golf and go-karting, and 50 minutes from Laggan Outdoor where zipwires can be zoomed along, William Tell can be emulated in archery, and Segways can be ridden at speed.

A little further afield, visits to Cream o’ Galloway dairy farm (an hour away) come highly recommended for rides, time spent on the adventure playground, and the ever-enticing reward of a pitstop in the ice cream parlour.

For a touch of nature, opt instead for saunters around the stately gardens of Castle Kennedy, Glenwhan and the Logan Botanic Garden, all within 25 minutes, or settle in next to the unusual Port Logan Fish Pond (30 minutes) – well worth a quick internet search – to see if anything bites.

Be sure, also to explore the nearest town, Stranraer, where a museum and castle are waiting to be explored, and a town trail will take visitors around the sights. If that castle isn’t generating the required Scottish vibes, it’s a 45-minute drive to Bladnoch Distillery for tours and tastings of some lowland single malt.
