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.

    Campsite was nice with fantastic views and nice staff

    Disliked: 

    Castle restaurants and bars were shut and were told of this 20 miles from arriving, which we’d already covered 150 miles, we were also told by staff to book directly with them as this would save any miscommunication as they would have told us in due course that the facilities were limited, we also followed the link on the pitchup site and the direction took us 6 miles away, with pitchup telling us “postcode covers a rough area”!! I put postcode in manually and got here no problem so clearly a problem with there link! Advice, book with the campsite, not with pitchup, I’ll be surprised if this review is published so I’ll post my review on media anyway

From the manager...

Due to circumstances outwith the control of the park the bar / restaurant and takeaway was closed on Friday without notice.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

    Friendly staff, amazing castle (very pretty). Good pitches, wide open spaces, lovely river walk nearby. Toilets and showers are average.

    Disliked: 

    Very family orientated, so potential for lots of noise. Bearing in mind we’re old gits in middle age, yelling kids are no longer our thing, bless ‘em.

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 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.
