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.

Spread 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 12lb (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

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Facilities/activities including fishing are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

A good start to our holiday09/19/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomGillian E.Confirmed

  • Fully-serviced grass and gravel touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The site is clearly a work in progress, but an almost finished work in progress. It looks like the new building will be a great asset to the site. The pitches were flat and pleasantly located. We were a fair trek from the toilets, but they were clean and new and the showers were good. It was our first excursion in our caravan so a good site to start us off and parking it was easy.

    Disliked: 

    Not really a dislike, but the drive to the touring pitches was narrow and full of pot holes. Once the new building is complete I'm sure this will be sorted out. As many others have mentioned there is a shooting range on site and it is very noisy during the day. I got used to it and it didn't bother me, but it won't be everyone's cup of tea.

    The pitch was level and had fresh water and electric hook up

    Disliked: 

    There was NO monitoring of COVID - we were not asked about our health either on arrival or prior to departure. There was NO evidence of extra cleaning of the shower/toilet block. There was empty hand sanitiser on the approach to the shower block - empty throughout our stay despite reporting this. There was no hand sanitiser in the actual toilet/shower block and no available equipment to clean facilities ourself after use.
    There was no additional paperwork/guidance regarding COVID.
    We had been touring and this was the only site that failed in all of these issues

  • Liked: 

    The staff were very pleasant and helpful, the toilets/showers were kept spotless all the time and social distancing advice was very clear for everyone to see.
    The site is open all year round which suits me as I like winter camping/touring just me a tent and a motorbike.

    Disliked: 

    I found the gravel hard work and a bit dodgy to ride a motorbike on but I didn't fall off so not much of a problem.

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

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 and regional food including haggis, plus Scottish and local craft beers and ciders… and a fine selection of whisky, of course.

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 (6.2 kilometres)
  • Carlisle Castle (18.6 kilometres)
  • Robert Burns Centre (29.9 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Wordsworth House and Garden (40.7 kilometres)
