Burrowhead Holiday Village: Stunning location for camping

General

  • Spacious parkland with views over the Solway Firth and Lake District
  • Jacuzzi, sauna, café, bar, crazy golf and play area
  • Close to Scotland's most southerly golf course

Ever seen the film The Wicker Man? If at any point you found yourself admiring the stunning Scottish scenery among the sense of impending celluloid doom (understandable), you'll probably be interested to know that the scenic setting in question was the village of Burrowhead on the Solway Firth.

And in Burrowhead is Burrowhead Holiday Village, a park in this scenic setting that's in a spacious hundred acres of parkland with views over the Solway Firth to the Isle of Man and the hills of the Lake District. This is activity land – sea fishing, golf and coastal walks are all very close to hand – and there's space to chill out back on site too as Burrowhead has a Jacuzzi and a sauna.

Let the kids loose at the play area, crazy golf, amusement arcade, soft play area, ball pool playroom and toddler splash pool with slide; the park also has pitch and putt golf, a putting green, a snooker room with licensed bar, and an adults-only function room.

A shop is there if you want to buy food and fire up your own cooker, but if not, Burrowhead Holiday Village has a well-priced café serving big breakfasts and other meals. Drinks and entertainment are sorted at the Headland family bar, which also has free wifi.

Burrowhead Holiday Village has a private water supply and they recommend that guests boil the water before consumption. Dogs are welcome on site but won't be allowed in the amenity buildings.

Please note

Minimum spacing of 6 metres between pitches.

Single-sex bookings of 3 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

The site has a private water supply - it's recommend that you boil the water before consumption.

    I liked this site. Normally we never go to holiday style campsites but this did not feel like one. We went in our Motorhome and had EHU and water and were positioned right in front of the sea. Make sure you ask for one of these as there is another behind the showers with no views. The bar is quite old fashioned but ok. The food was not good which is such as shame as no where else to eat . The site was very quiet and clean with lovely gardens. Quite a long walk into Whithorn but it’s a lovely village . The showers are clean but just warm . The pool / jacuzzi indoor area has seen better days but good value as it’s included . I quite liked my stay and would visit again but would bring my own food.

    Disliked: 

    The food . Could be so much nice4 and no Wi-Fi, couldn’t even get a radio signal.

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

If you're up for some angling, cast off from rocks, boats or loch near Burrowhead Holiday Village; fishing off the rocks is allowed at the Burrowhead coast and at the local beaches. All of this scenery lends itself well to walks as well: once you've wandered along the coast a bit, try the trails at Kirroughtree and through the Galloway Forest Park.

This is top birdwatching territory too, so look out/up for birds when you're around this part of coast, and it's prime dark skies land for stargazing afterwards.

Popular attractions in the area are Bladnoch Distillery, Galloway Forest Park, the book town of Wigtown and the Cream o' Galloway, a dairy farm that produces topping ice cream and has a crazy golf course.

Nearby Whithorn is where Christianity in Scotland evolved under the leadership of St Ninian; the Whithorn Story Visitor Centre and St Ninian's Cave are the main tourist draws.

Other nearby days out could include the 75 acres of child-friendly Castle Kennedy Gardens; a look at the inhabitants of Monreith Animal World, and the watersports and activities of Galloway Activity Centre (about an hour away).

Finally, the port of Cairnryan is about 40 miles away: sail to Larne in Northern Ireland from here and drive along the coast to have a day in Belfast.

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
