Fishing lake

General

  • Gretna country park with fly fishing and clay pigeon shooting
  • Over 100 acres with three fishing ponds: rods available on site
  • Shooting tuition, shop and café

Found a great catch or fancy a shotgun wedding? Sorted: this fab shooting and fishing site’s 10 minutes from Gretna Green.

Over 100 acres of grounds in the Dumfries and Galloway countryside, Westlands Country Park combines outdoor activities with fine natural surrounds: there are three fishing ponds here for starters, with some whoppers weighing in at 12lbs (catch and release or keep a few to barbecue for supper). Rods are available on site and tackle shops are a 25-minute drive away in Carlisle.

You won’t find the clay pigeons as tasty as the trout but the shooting’s a lark, with the faux-birds being launched from a 140-foot tower. Novices can book a session with an instructor, but if you’ve got a shotgun licence you can hone your skills with some tuition or just head for the traps (booking essential).

The site has a café serving hot food from 9am and a small shop for basics... it’s hungry work all that shootin’ and fishin’, after all... And even if you’re not planning any nuptials, Gretna has pubs, eateries and supermarkets for stocking up.

Please note

Noisy site with no privacy - very helpful reception staff09/03/2019

  • Liked: 

    Very friendly reception staff, who did everything they could to help.

    Disliked: 

    We arrived at our pitch to find it full of cars. It was the people camping behind the touring pitches. Their tent was very close to where our Van would have been. We asked to move and the receptionist was very helpful and we shifted pitch. Overall the site is very noisy with the clay pigeon shooting very close (shotguns going off all day). and for the size of the estate, the pitches are very cramped, with no tree's or hedges to provide any privacy.

    Also , the toilet blocks are quite a long way from the touring pitches.

    I would not recommend this site if you are after a peaceful break. We ended up finding another site after 1 night ( we had payed for 3).

    There is quite a bit of building work going on, and they are obviously trying to improve the site. I wish them well , but we did not enjoy our stay.

It met most of my needs and I will use again08/29/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Electric optional grass tent pitch (solo)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    It was raining when I arrived and this continued until the following morning prior to me leaving. In a tent, I could not cook so ate cold sandwiches, I won't starve. I would have liked a room for this in event of poor British weather, well it's part of our summer so we need to be prepared. There is a cafe which was shut in the evening, but had a I chosen to eat breakfast there it would have been available. Otherwise it was great, clean facilities, the two staff members I met were polite, friendly and helpful. There were no staff at first so I checked the map at reception and went to pitch my tent up. I even used the laundry in the morning.
    There is building work on site at the time of my visit, despite this the volume levels of this activity were not intrusive, indeed I was expecting to be awoken early by the builders which did not happen. It will be interesting to see what they plan to do with the sight.
    I would stay again and recommend it for others.

    Disliked: 

    No room for self catering in event of poor weather for campers in tents.

    Great location just off motorway but far enough away to avoid noise; good facilities; friendly staff

    Disliked: 

    Clay pigeon shooting is a bit noisy during the day; some of the static caravans have hot tubs (and noisy occupants) facing the pitches; bit of a walk to toilets for those without facilities in their caravan

    Excellent site with great modern facilities and decent sized pitches. We were on the fully serviced pitch which are located pretty close to the toilet facilities. The site caters for both fishing and clay pigeon shooting, which unfortunately I am neither of these, or should I say I wasn't. They do a give it a go package on the shooting which we tried. I must say the instructor was excellent. He had a professional and safe manor, but without taking the enjoyment out of the experience. I am now looking forward to the next time I can go shooting again. I'm pleased to say that all the staff we had dealings with at the site also had a very helpful and professional approach to the job. It is a great site to use as a base to venture out because of the nearby road links. A trip to grey mares tail waterfall is a must, the views are breathtaking. We will be booking again in the very near future

Local attractions

You don’t have to confine your fishing to the ponds: head to Port Carlisle (35 minutes) for sea fishing from the Solway estuary banks, or 55 minutes to Bassenthwaite in the Lake District.

Closer to home, Westlands is a 10-minute drive from Annandale Distillery for those who care to celebrate their fishing or shooting prowess with a single malt: tours are available every day and the distillery also has a café serving afternoon teas; regional food including haggis; Scottish and local craft beers and ciders... and a fine selection of whisky.

It’s a 40-minute trip to Bowness-on-Solway, at the tip of the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; walk the Hadrian’s Wall Trail all 73 miles to Tyneside if you fancy it, or march a shorter section and picnic on the walls like legionaries did.

Some fine family-friendly walks start from Burgh-by-Sands (35 minutes) and Silloth (50 minutes), taking in the (alleged) resting place of Edward I, Hammer of the Scots, and the wildlife of the wetlands; various do-in-a-day bike routes start from Carlisle, Kirkbride (35 minutes) and Silloth to see the region from the saddle.

If you’re seeking more pulse-racing stuff, try flyboating nine metres over the water or jetskiing at Wetjets in Dumfries (25 minutes).

Must see

  • World Famous Old Blacksmith's Shop Centre (3.9 miles)
  • Carlisle Castle (11.6 miles)
  • Robert Burns Centre (18.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Wordsworth House and Garden (25.3 miles)
