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.

    Great location with lots of room. Touring pitches with gravel base are best if available for levelling. Good access to beach and local walks. Bar and restaurant 600yds up road if required though busy and booking recommended. Subscriber Wifi available.

    No recycling bins available.

Enjoyed our three night stay here17/09/2020

  • Electric grass and gravel touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Liked having well spaced hard standing pitches which you are assigned to. Close proximity to the wonderful beach and walks. Plenty of open green spaces - but that's probably due to not accepting camping as washing facilities all closed.

    Disliked: 

    Shop was not well stocked so had to go off site for nearest shop - best to shop for essentials before arriving. Had to pay for WIFI
