Sandyhills Bay Holiday Park: Play in the sand

General

  • Secluded seaside family park
  • Direct access to a spectacular sandy beach
  • Shop, takeaway, picnic and outdoor play area

What a secluded and sandy Scottish sojourn can be had at Sandyhills Bay Holiday Park: it's by the sea with smashing views over the bay and has direct access to a beaut beach.

And it's in lush locale for foresty and nature walks too, as it's close to the RSPB reserve at Mersehead and the walking trails and wildlife of Dalbeattie Forest. More? Sandyhills is also near the yachting village of Kippford and shooting down slopes on the world-famed 7stanes mountain bike trails, and has an 18-hole golf course, riding centre and an indoor swimming pool with restaurant all a short walk away.

The Sandyhills Bay facilities are kept to excellent standards and include a modern heated toilet and shower block, a launderette, covered washing-up sinks and a play area splendidly set beside the sand dunes. A well-stocked shop is next to reception along with a beach takeaway and picnic tables. Wardens are on site if you need any help or info during your stay.

And yet more evidence of Sandyhills Bay's lush locale? The spectacular coastal walk to Rockcliffe, shown on More 4's Walks with my Dog programme, starts from the park.

    Disliked: 

    Disappointed the shop did not sell staple foods ( milk, bread etc) Advertising there was site shop and takeaway is misleading as one presumes you can get supplies from there. Didn't see evidence of a takeaway - same comments apply.

    Everything about this site was perfect. Almost on the beach amazing views from our caravan. The beach was the best we’ve been to and we’ve been to many over the years. Showers were perfect and always free as the site is only small. The staff were lovely and always on hand if you needed them. Will definitely be going back to Sandyhills Bay Caravan Park 10/10 😀
