General

  • Spacious parkland with views over the Solway Firth and Lake District
  • Pools, Jacuzzi, sauna, café, bar and free wifi
  • 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 plenty to do on site too as Burrowhead has an indoor and a summer outdoor pool, 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.

Please note dogs or pets are not permitted in The Old Peat House guest room, but are welcome on the main site for a small fee.

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 01/07 and 31/08 (subject to weather conditions).

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.

    Fantastic view, nice pitch, very clean, very friendly.

    Disliked: 

    We were on B tourer site which gave us the view. The down side was a trek to the shower/toilet block. We were lucky it wasn’t raining!. Also a dog friendly site but we weren’t allowed into the on site bar, which was disappointing. We walked to the bar to lend our support in these difficult times.

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 amusement park and dairy farm producing topping ice cream.

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.
