Northerners, fear not: southern-ness is not a prerequisite to enjoyment of a stay at Southerness Holiday Village at the foot of the Galloway Hills; the superb sea views and great facilities on site should please all comers.
The pitches at this family-friendly park look out over the windswept beauty of the Solway Firth, towards the English Lake District; and the surrounding countryside is teeming with wildlife, from the tiny creatures that inhabit the rockpools on the neighbouring beach to the great stags stalking the Galloway Forest Park further inland. Amphibian admirers will be interested to know to that the site is next door to Scotland’s largest breeding colony of Natterjack toads...
When it comes to your own wee beasties, Southerness serves up a generous dollop of fun for kids too: buzzing clubs catering for the very small to hulking teens; an indoor pool with a flume, fountains and toddler pool (and a Jacuzzi for the grownups); a soft play area; crazy golf; amusements; outdoor playgrounds - plus of course the lively schedule of evening entertainment for the whole family in the Sunset Showbar.
There’s a good choice of menu options in the onsite bar-restaurant, as well as fresh Costa coffee; or you can opt for a takeaway if you just want to chill out in your own space and admire the views.
There’s free wifi in designated areas of the site.

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.

Southerness is a beachside holiday park located 15 miles from Dumfries.
Head for Dumfries town centre and follow the A710 Solway Coast Road.
Approximately 14 miles after Dumfries, one mile after the village of Kirkbean, look out for the clearly signed turning on the left down to Southerness Holiday Village.
There is a bus stop within 100 yards of the park gates running to Dumfries and Dalbeattie. The service is infrequent, running approximately every two hours. The approximate cost of a taxi fare to Dumfries is £12.
Assuming the weather is kind, the area surrounding Southerness Holiday Village is tiptop for anyone looking for an active holiday. Do your own thing or shake off the cobwebs and try something new and exciting at one of the excellent activity centres in the Dumfries and Galloway region. Golfers are in for a particular treat, given the enormous choice of excellent courses nearby (the closest championship course is on the doorstep, in Southerness).
If you fancy getting out and about, there’s a plethora of attractions to choose from: tickle your taste buds with a trip to the Cocoa Bean Factory or ice cream factory; rattle around on the barrel train at Mabie Farm Park, a great value attraction packed with activities to keep the kids entranced all day; ramble around the romantic ruins of Sweetheart Abbey; clamber around a couple of castles; or visit the Robert Burns Centre in Dumfries.
Or you could head to one of Dumfries and Galloway’s 'themed' towns: Wigtown for bookish types, Castle Douglas for foodies, or the artists’ town of Kirkcudbright.
