If the kids say they’re bored at Brighouse Bay Holiday Park at Kirkcudbright on the Dumfries and Galloway coast, you might want to send them home.

Sublime sea views, heaps of on-site activities, six fishing ponds, a private beach and around 1200 acres of also-sublime countryside walks on the doorstep are all here all year round, tucked on a secluded and peaceful peninsula with views over the Irish Sea – this is possibly the most viewsome round of golf you’ll ever play (before you read on, see for yourself from the site pics).

Pretty much everything you could want is on site or very close by: if golf at the 18-hole Brighouse Bay Holiday Park championship course or free coarse fishing doesn’t float your boat, wander over the working livestock farm, along the coast (camera very much essential), through acres’ worth of signposted hikes through the local woodland… or launch a kayak from the bay’s all-tide slipway or a boat onto the pond, or angle for sea fish from the rocks or just sit and drink in the views with a drink from the on-site lounge bar…

If the weather should be less than co-operative during your stay, stay undercover at the park’s Jacuzzi, steam room, fitness room, indoor pool with separate splashing area for toddlers or indoor games room with mini bowling; once the weather starts co-operating again, roll along to the all-weather bowling green. (Weather forecasts, news and essentials like Facebook and the like can be checked via the free wifi at the Brighouse Bay Holiday Park café.)

Also on site – yes, there’s more – the well-stocked shop keeps guests sorted for essentials and the licensed bistro serves hot and cold meals and snacks to have there or in the family lounge (both are licensed).

Environmentally-friendly and award-winning Brighouse has been set up to have a country park feel and this extends to picking your pitch wherever tickles your fancy: by the up to date clean facilities, beside the children’s play area to keep out a beady eye, or tucked away in a quiet corner of the touring field. Wardens are on site if you need any help or info during your stay.

The two amenities blocks are centrally heated in winter – quite a handy feature on the Scottish coast – and have separate ladies’ and gents’ sections in the larger block alongside ensuite cubicles for families.

Feeling just a tad bamboozled by all the options on offer? Make a visit to the knowledgeable team at reception your first stop, to load up on leaflets, maps and suggestions on what to see and do in the surroundings.
