Hoddom Castle Caravan Park: Great pitch

General

  • Spacious family-friendly site 15 minutes' drive from Lockerbie
  • In the grounds of a 16th-century castle next to the River Annan
  • Golf course, salmon fishing, guided walks and play park

A castle? But of course – surely you deserve nothing less? Hoddom Castle Caravan Park, in the Dumfries & Galloway countryside a 15-minute drive from the town of Lockerbie, is a fine pick for families and those with an eye for the finer things in life.

This is a site that’s been running since 1973, but the history of the place goes back much further than that – the castle in question is a 16th-century border keep that’s the focal point of the 10,000 acres of the Hoddom and Kinmount estates. Other historic buildings including the hilltop Repentance Tower and the ancient St Kentigerns churchyard are scattered around the estate, and the River Annan river flows along its edge.

Guests are welcome to roam along walking trails or join the tours run by the estate ranger on selected summer Sunday afternoons. Other suitably regal activities are to hand too: the estate has its own nine-hole golf course and some top spots for salmon fishing in the river.

Even the most princely of visitors need to let their hair down occasionally, so there’s also a play park on site.

    It was lovely to stay hear. Oldest child not stop talk about it since return home
    Restaurant shut down now and replaced with a food van which was amazing and the prices were good for the food and a few people said the van was a lot cheeper than the restaurant every was.
    I liked we had a wee campers kitchen never been any were that had one of them before

    Disliked: 

    Check in time to late (luckily when I arrived it was empty so got to check in early)
    As much a I loved it hear the pod was freezing even with heating on all night. Kids were wake up freezing so next time would take my own heater
    Not much for younger kids to do (1-4/5) there is a park but it not really suitable for younger kids.

    Disliked: 

    Well we booked hoping for a restaurant, but that had been closed after summer holiday, we were not told of this until we signed in, then we were told you can go to Tesco!. Then we had 2 nights of cold showers, because gas hadn't been ordered no offer of financial recompence, rather sad as it was our first experience in our newly acquired Motorhome. sorry

    Really nice, clean well kept site.
    Arriving late the reception door has our details and map stuck to it.
    Helpful and friendly staff in the shop.
    The site had a number of facility blocks but only the one shower block.
    Loved the local milk dispenser and couldn't resist a chocolate milk after a long days MTB riding.

    Disliked: 

    Not a big issue but the sign the main entrance could do with some lighting as we arrived late and the postcode took us to the exit of the one way system.

    The signs to the pitch number could have been larger for the night time arrival but in the daylight they were fine and we did have a map from he reception door explaining the route and the location of the map.

    It was a shame the bar was closed but we were informed of this before hand.

Directions

Local attractions

If you need a little tipple to sip while you survey your smart surrounds, take a jaunt to one of the local gin distilleries – the Distillery at Dalton is 10 minutes away by car and Annandale Distillery 15 minutes. (Best be saving their [excellent] wares for later if you’re intending to try your hand at horse carriage driving, 25 minutes away at the Chariots of Fire centre.)

Countryside visit not complete until you’ve seen all the farm animals? Take your pick from outings to Dalscone Farm Fun (20 minutes away), Mabie Farm Park and Walby Farm Park (both half an hour): all are packed with furry friends that should have the small sorts (and most likely the grownups too) squealing with glee. If they’re more into beasts of the prehistoric variety, detour instead to Dino Park (10 minutes) for a roaring good time among the lifesized models.

Fancy flexing the credit card? Get on over to Gretna Gateway Outlet Village to browse for bargains from a whole host of high street names.

Must see

  • World Famous Old Blacksmith's Shop Centre (17.2 kilometres)
