Westlands Country Park: Touring area on a sunny day

General

  • Gretna country park with fly fishing and clay pigeon shooting
  • Over 100 acres with three fishing ponds: rods available on site
  • Shooting tuition, shop and café

Found a great catch or fancy a shotgun wedding? Sorted: this fab shooting and fishing site is 10 minutes' drive from Gretna Green.

Spread over 100 acres of grounds in the Dumfries and Galloway countryside, Westlands Country Park combines outdoor activities with fine natural surrounds: there are three fishing ponds here for starters, with some whoppers weighing in at 12lb (catch and release or keep a few to barbecue for supper). Rods are available on site and tackle shops are a 25-minute drive away in Carlisle.

You won’t find the clay pigeons as tasty as the trout but the shooting’s a lark, with the faux-birds being launched from a 140-foot tower. Novices can book a session with an instructor, but if you’ve got a shotgun licence you can hone your skills with some tuition or just head for the traps (booking essential).

The site has a café serving hot food from 9am and a small shop for basics… it’s hungry work all that shootin’ and fishin’, after all… And even if you’re not planning any nuptials, Gretna has pubs, eateries and supermarkets for stocking up.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Facilities/activities including fishing, shooting range access are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

Tents are not accepted at this park.

    Second time in 5 weeks of staying here. Chose this site again as we liked it last time. Excellent facilities and in a great place for our journeys.
    This time we tried the food, (fish, chips and mushy peas) which was very good.
    All very clean and tidy and the staff ate helpful and friendly.

    Friendly , welcoming staff and Peacock!! Bar and restaurant are great value with good quality food. Gun rooms and shooting facilities are excellent. Great prices for fully serviced pitches that are large enough to accommodate long motorhomes and campervans. Dogs welcome. Clean and warm shower facilities.

    Great fully serviced pitches, the tap froze overnight, but we had taken on enough water anyway (it is winter after all). Nice clean toilets and showers.
    The restaurant and shop area was great, very helpful staff, we had breakfast and it was very tasty.
    Great for our stopover on the way back south, and would certainly use again.
    The lodges looked fabulous too, so maybe in the future we might book one of those for a stay.

    We stopped over for one night and found the facilities were really clean. We stayed for breakfast the next morning which was excellent also.

    Disliked: 

    We arrived on 2nd Jan which was a bank holiday but didn’t realise the site would be closed so we couldn’t eat in the restaurant.

    This may have been missed due to booking through pitch up rather than booking direct as we were not made aware. Still enjoyed the stay though but would check opening times direct in future.

Looking forward to trying the clay shooting!

    Although a long way from the pitch Showers and toilet block new, warm and plenty hot water.

    Disliked: 

    Pitch was next to a seasonal pitch and the outlook onto this was scruffy and very untidy. Also the grass around our pitch was covered in dog Pooh!! I made a complaint to the reception who kindly told me that there was no one available as they were all busy to come to clear the piles of excrement from the pitch area!
    Wouldn’t stay there again

Directions


Please follow road signs to Westlands Activity Centre.

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

You don’t have to confine your fishing to the ponds: head to Port Carlisle (35 minutes' drive) for sea fishing from the Solway estuary banks, or 55 minutes to Bassenthwaite in the Lake District.

Closer to home, Westlands is a 10-minute drive from Annandale Distillery for those who care to celebrate their fishing or shooting prowess with a single malt: tours are available every day and the distillery also has a café serving afternoon teas and regional food including haggis, plus Scottish and local craft beers and ciders… and a fine selection of whisky, of course.

It’s a 40-minute trip to Bowness-on-Solway, at the tip of the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; walk the Hadrian’s Wall Trail all 73 miles to Tyneside if you fancy it, or march a shorter section and picnic on the walls like legionaries did.

Some fine family-friendly walks start from Burgh-by-Sands (35 minutes) and Silloth (50 minutes), taking in the (alleged) resting place of Edward I, Hammer of the Scots, and the wildlife of the wetlands; various do-in-a-day bike routes start from Carlisle, Kirkbride (35 minutes) and Silloth to see the region from the saddle.

If you’re seeking more pulse-racing stuff, try flyboating nine metres over the water or jetskiing at Wetjets in Dumfries (25 minutes).

Must see

  • World Famous Old Blacksmith's Shop Centre (6.2 kilometres)
  • Carlisle Castle (18.6 kilometres)
  • Robert Burns Centre (29.9 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Wordsworth House and Garden (40.7 kilometres)
