General

  • Quiet park within walking distance of Gatehouse of Fleet
  • In a wildlife haven and a few miles from the coast
  • Free use of sister park with pool, restaurant, gym and solarium

If you're after a quieter vibe at a family holiday park in Dumfries and Galloway, you'll very much like Anwoth Caravan Park.

It's the sister site of Auchenlarie Holiday Park (also on Pitchup.com), in a peaceful wildlife haven setting near the pretty town of Gatehouse of Fleet and in an area that's inspired Scottish bards and artists for centuries. But – what genius – guests at Anwoth can also use the facilities at Auchenlarie, which is about four miles/seven minutes' drive along the A75 (turn right on leaving Anwoth and look for Auchenlarie signposted on the left) and which has a heated indoor pool, restaurant, takeaway and leisure centre with gym and solarium among loads loads more. Entertainment and leisure passes available for daily, short break or weekly stays: buy on arrival at Anwoth.

But back to the peace and quiet… Anwoth is in an area where you can sit still and see a lot of wildlife: herds of deer regularly roam the surrounding landscape, you might see otters if you're very very quiet, and you'll likely spy birds of prey and red squirrels among the many local species. This is also serious angling locale, particularly for salmon and trout fishing in the nearby rivers of the Esk, Annan, Nith, Ken, Dee and Cree.

Anwoth has a launderette, washing facilities and a shower and toilet block on site. Restaurants, cafés, bars, craft shops and a well-stocked convenience store are at Gatehouse of Fleet a short walk away; the town has a local bus service too.

Please note

Facilities/activities including use of leisure facilities, round of mini golf, solarium, gym are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

Single-sex bookings of 4 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

Bed linen and towels are not provided for caravan hire, but guests can order a pack of these on arrival.

    Quiet yet close to local shops. Refurbished toilet and shower block excellent.
    There are a lot of statics but the way the site is set up you are not very aware of this.
    Friendly welcome from warden. We have been to this site many times and will go again. Gatehouse is a great place from which to explore Dumfries and Galloway.

    Polite and friendly staff.excellent facilities including free use of showers(on site) and pool(at its sister site few miles down the road).good value for money.

    Disliked: 

    Unbelievable amount of midges at times. Personally found it slightly claustrophobic as you can be surrounded by touring caravans.also don't feel its suitable for families with very young children(under 10s) as its mainly a quite campsite(and you are made aware of this)

    The site was very well kept and tidy. The staff upon arrival were very friendly and helpfull. The toilets and shower block was very clean and always an endless supply of hot water. The site also offers free WIFI which was suprisingly fast. The village of Gatehouse of Fleet has 3 or 4 pubs which you can get meals in also a 5 minute walk is a good sized spar shop.
    WILL DEFINITELY RETURN TO THIS SITE

Local attractions

Smart sorts should be quite the fans of Dumfries and Galloway, for many many reasons including its wildlife and birdwatching, its lush landscape and the evidence of its rich history, archaeology and art in its castles, towers, abbeys, earthworks and standing stones. And did you know that JM Barrie had the idea for Peter Pan while in Dumfries – and that nearby Sanquhar has the oldest post office in Scotland…?

Paul, Neil and Bob (the new generation of Swalwells to own Anwoth Caravan Park) also suggest a look at Whithorn, on the southern tip of the Machars peninsula and the seat of Christianity in Scotland, and at Lochmaben as the birthplace of Robert the Bruce. And if you like reading Rabbie, you might also like to see Dumfries, home and resting place for famed Scottish poet Robert Burns.

Ecclefechan, the birth town of Thomas Carlyle, is also within reach – do be sure to have an Ecclefechan butter tart while you're there.

Must see
