Barnharrow Holiday Pods: Exterior

General

  • Scenic site with swish glamping huts overlooking the Galloway Hills
  • Galloway Forest walks and mountain biking within a 20-minute drive
  • Pods each include a kitchen, woodburning stove, double bed and ensuite

Sorting out where to stay on a stint in south-west Scotland? Forget the tent and cosy up in comfort at Barnharrow Holiday Pods, a glamping site on a 100-acre farm with fully equipped and well-insulated accommodation.

Each unit at this park in the stunning region of Dumfries and Galloway sleeps up to two adults and a couple of kids in a space with a double bed (linens and towels included), an ensuite shower, a toilet and a washbasin. A two-ring cooking hob and a fridge make prepping eats easier and the woodburning stove comes in handy for extra warmth.

After all, you might be wanting that bit of extra heat once you’re done with a day out in the local countryside: this site is set between Newton Stewart (15 minutes’ drive), a town edging the hills and trails of Galloway Forest Park, and the lovely Loch Ryan (30 minutes).

Newton Stewart is the place to stock up on essentials at the shops, while Kirroughtree (20 minutes) is your gateway to adventures like mountain biking, zipwiring and zorbing.

Back on base, light up the barbecue and campfire – both are permitted at this peaceful park – and gaze up at the night sky. Galloway Forest Park is a Dark Sky Reserve, so the stars tend to twinkle brightly here.

    Our stay was absolute bliss from the moment we arrived to a warm welcome from Emily. The pod exceeded our expectations with its level of detail - down to utensils and recycling bags. The breakfast pack included good quality local produce - and plenty of it! There was easy access to a pretty, short walks and exploration along the coast or in the national park is within easy driving distance. We’ve already booked for next year!

We are glad you all enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to seeing you all again next year. Thank you for leaving our pod in a clean and tidy manner very much appreciated.

Excellent pod with ample and clean facilities, idyllic location17/08/2021

  • Camping pod (ensuite, two man)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The location was beautiful, in the middle of nowhere and we had so much privacy. The pod itself was comfortable and clean, it had its own kitchenette and bathroom which was perfect for us. The bed was very comfortable and it came with a sofa bed too but we didn’t use it. Waking up every morning to that view was amazing, the sheep around. It was so idyllic. It was in driving distance to the Galloway forest park which we visited several times, we visited the wild goat park and deer range which was our favourite place to go, the goats are so friendly! We used the self catering facilities to prepare our own breakfast, lunch and tea which was great as it saved a lot of money! We visited the Aldi about 20 minutes away for food. We would definitely visit again as it was so lovely to be away from everything.

    Disliked: 

    We were given kitchen utensils, the frying pan was quite small and we had no fairy liquid to wash the pots and pans! It is quite a drive if you want to visit all of the visitor centres but definitely worth it.

From the manager...

We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

Thank you for your feed back and we are sorry about the fairy liquid but as its self catering we don't supply this. I see from your comments you visited Aldi and I do believe they sell it!! The frying pan is a normal size any bigger and it would be to big for the electric ring!

Hope to see you again!

    We liked everything-the pod was wonderful and had everything you needed to have a comfortable stay. The grounds and site was excellent, spacious, well maintained and the views were lovely. We liked it very much that it was not a crowded site, with just a few pods available, so it was great if you want solitude and quiet.
    Emily was lovely and made us feel very welcome. It didnt bother us that the wifi signal was not so good, it was nice to be disconnected on the phone for a few days, although you could get 4G networks.

    The quality of the Pod, compact with all amenities you would need for a short stay. Very good location with lovely views, peace and quiet. With only 2 (soon to be 3) pods it was really quiet and felt personal.
    The host was nice, popped over on arrival to ensure everything thing was ok and when we were leaving to check everything was to our satisfaction.
    Locally there is all the shops and activities you could need (just needed to travel a few miles due to remote location).
    Overall very nice, thoroughly enjoyable stay

Directions


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

Galloway Forest Park is said to be the largest of its kind in the UK, so set aside a fair bit of time to spend here roaming around the woods, hills and lochs or embarking on some cycling at the acclaimed 7stanes mountain bike trail centre in Glentrool (30 minutes’ drive).

For peaceful pastimes, bring your rod along to the Three Lochs (25 minutes) for a spot of fishing, then continue on to the 75 acres of the Castle Kennedy Gardens in Sheuchan (25 minutes), with its manicured landscape and glittery lakes, for strolls.

If you’re hot on horticulture, aim for the Logan Botanic Garden (40 minutes) as well, to see plants from all over the world at an open-air establishment set in an area with an almost subtropical climate. The Gulf Stream keeps the air relatively warm, so flora from Australia, New Zealand, South America and Southern Africa flourishes here.

You’ll also be close enough to the coast for quick seaside trips while staying at this park: Dalavan beach, just off the Big Water of Fleet, is 35 minutes away.

Must see

  • Culzean Castle & Country Park (28.2 miles)
