- Adults-only site on a peaceful 200-acre estate with beach access
- A 25-minute drive from Dumfries and 35 from Carlisle
- Seven coarse fishing lakes and fully stocked tackle shop on site
Calm water and a haven for nature, lakes sure are peaceful… so how do you fancy a stay on a 200-acre private estate with seven of them on site? Stays at the adults-only Broom Caravan and Campsite come with (yep, you guessed it) seven lakes and an array of wildlife to spot, including the rare natterjack toad, badgers, deer, bitterns and dingy skipper butterflies.
Keen anglers will be in heaven here – the site is 100 metres from Broom Fisheries’ bankside, so you can simply roll out of bed and set up for the day. The coarse fishing lakes are packed with a range of specimens, such as barbel, bream, rudd and carp, and there’s a fully stocked tackle shop on site for bait and other supplies (so don’t worry if you leave any kit at home).
Not a fishing fan? Not a problem… these peaceful surrounds are also splendid for a stroll around the lakes instead. Four-legged friends are welcome, so feel free to bring one along for some company while you wander. There’s also access to a beach for folk who'd like to swap lake views for seaside ones.
When you’re up for venturing further afield, this spot makes a great base to see more of Dumfries and Galloway and beyond; guests can choose between historical market towns like Annan (less than 10 minutes’ drive) and livelier cities like Carlisle (35 minutes) when it comes to days out.
The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).
Guests under the age of 18 are not allowed on site.
Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.
Tents are not accepted at this park.
Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.
