Castle Cary Holiday Park: Non electric grass field

General

  • Spectacularly scenic lakeside park, set around a 16th-century castle
  • A 10-minute drive from Newton Stewart and the Galloway Forest Park
  • Pools, inn, crazy golf, games room, playground and donkey corner

Care for a hol among spectacular Scottish scenery… on a fably kitted out park with access to its own loch for fishing – and with its own swish inn and restaurant to keep you fully fuelled? Come and call upon family-run Castle Cary Holiday Park in Dumfries and Galloway.

Set a handy seven miles from Newton Stewart, Castle Cary is in splendid surrounds with royally fine views over the local woodland, fields and the estuary of the River Cree. It's centred around a 16th-century baronial castle, part of which has been restored as the Laird's Inn, a warm and cosy space of wooden beams, stone walls and open fires (it's best to book a table in advance here as it's rather popular).

The inn's the place to retreat to after a day getting active around the site and in the local countryside: you can fish here or in river, sea or loch nearby; there's sailing, boating, horse riding and wild swimming all nearby, and Galloway Forest Park is 10 minutes' drive north.

Castle Cary has excellent amenities to go with its smartly-kept pitches, including a chalet building with showers, toilets, a disabled-access toilet, a baby changing room, a laundry room and sinks; guests also have access to a dishwashing area. The site also has a family-run café which is open daily and which serves breakfasts, meals, snacks, coffee and sweet treats.

Facilities are rather fine too, with two big heated pools (one indoor and one outdoor; charges apply for both), a heated paddling pool, a playground, crazy golf, a games room with pool tables and video games, and – pretty much guaranteed to make the kids go gaga – a donkey corner to greet the site's four-legged residents.

    Lovely site with great views. Well maintained with shop selling basic goods. Never used the pool but it did look good. Plenty of wild life in and around park. Very clean facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Only two issues the showers are terrible they work with push button and don't give enough time so end up having to hold in button, water pressure is also really poor. Also no recycling facilities. Both issues wouldn't stop me using site but would make the experience better if they were addressed.

    Play park, woodland walk to the village, cleanliness of the site/toilets/swimming pool and cafe. Pitches were all level. The sky at night was amazing!

    Disliked: 

    The fact the pools/cafe/arcade only open until 2pm. It doesn’t leave much to do once darkness came down at 6.30pm for the children. Tried to check in and check out, however the reception was closed, never saw any staff apart from lady in cafe.
