Great camp site, my family when I was you used, and now my family and grand children use it.

 

From our Facebook page:-

A fantastic camp site, very clean and well laid out. Location is perfect for Stranraer and the surrounding area. Well within walking distance of the town and all it’s shops/facilities.

Went with a tent and the wash facilities are spotless and the condition of the field is superbly maintained. Couldn’t have been a better experience.

Will certainly be returning within the next year.

We stayed at this site for two nights, with a day-trip to Belfast (without the van!) in between.
The site is large, with plenty of space around. There are a selection of grass- and hard-standings (we were recommended to take a hard pitch because of the amount of rain before our visit). The lady we spoke to was very friendly and helpful.
The toilet block is a little elderly, but had been recently painted and was immaculately clean. Showers are electric and run off 50p coin meters.
Lots of room for kids to run about, and lots of ducks, rabbits, and Shetland ponies to watch. There are some picnic tables scattered around the grounds, which would be good to eat at on a nice day.
It’s about a mile to the centre of Stranraer (20 minutes walk) where there is a Morrisons supermarket as well as lots of local shops and a smallish Tesco, plus a good choice of eating places.
I think the site is still popular with people travelling via the ferries, although these have now moved to Cairnryan which is about 8 miles up the road.

This is a lovely site that has been owned by the same couple for over fifty years. It is well maintained and a great place for touring The Rhinns of Galloway and South West Scotland. It is a short walk into the town of Stranraer with a number of historic pubs and eating places. It is also quite close to Stranraer football ground. For ferries to and from Ireland it is a great stopping off point. The immaculate grounds are very safe for children and the park is teeming with wildlife including red squirrels. We hope to take our grandchildren there very soon.

This site was extremely easy to find, with the drive way actually on the A75 itself and heralded with brown information signs. I was made really welcome by the very friendly owner. The short stay facilities were nice and clean – take change to pay for the shower ( 50p ) – There was a handy washing up area too. I was only staying here over night before I caught the ferry. This was the perfect location, I was able to unhitch, set up, refill petrol at the large Supermarket just half a mile or so further along the A75 and for my own peace of mind, do a dry run to the car and caravan entry to the ferry port which is a very easy journey,about 0.8 miles from the site and well signed (follow ‘Freight’ signs, it doesn’t mention caravans until you turn into the port).
I only managed to find a few BBC channels with my freeview box, but I had a great nights sleep as it was such a relief to be so close to the ferry and know exactly where I was going. I would absolutely, definitely stay here again and it would be a great place to visit the area on a longer stay

We have just spent 5 days here. This was the closest site for us visiting relatives in Stranraer. It is very popular with travellers using the Ferries. Easy to find and about a 15 minute walk into the town.
The short stay toilet block was clean, there was a 50p charge for the showers which gave you 8 minutes, you also regulated your own temperature which on some metered showers is not an option.
The owner was very welcoming. The hardstandings are exactly that hard. We had a spot where we were able to put up our awnings but the OH still managed to bend a hammer whilst hitting in the rock pegs!
We would use this site again.

We have just spent two nights at your beatiful site & will definitely be coming back in the future. Facilities & surroundings were all excellent. What a great way to start & finish our 4 week tour around Scotland – so very handy for the HSS ferry to Belfast. This is a special park in every way with an unbelievable atmosphere. Attention to every detail! The owner took the time to tell us about the history of the park & was so proud of her park & rightly so! We could have listened to her all day, interesting charming friendly! Many thanks

I have stayed on this site numerous times over the past number of years and was there in May.Admittedly I use it on my way to or from the ferry and its central location is very handy for the surrounding area. Facilities are spotless although one nighters will find themselves using the older toilet block. Site is well back from the main road – no road noise it is very quiet and a 10 minute walk takes you to the centre of Stranraer and local supermarkets. Hard stands for caravans and seperate level grass field for campers

This is a very convenient site for seeing the Rhinns Of Galloway.The site is well controlled by its owners who look after their customers well. In all a nice secure feeling site with access to the ferries and the rest of Galloway.

If you travel by boat to Ireland is an ideal campsite for one night stay. Especially for a pretty large field tent. Further nice owner.

Ideal base for travel to Ireland. Camp is well maintained, spacious and friendly owners. No camping for children with long standing. Well good starting point for travel along west Scottish coast.

Stayed one night before heading for the ferry to Ireland (Home).
Lovely peaceful site within walking distance of town for shops, pubs, resturant etc. Owners friendly and helpful. Lots of rabbits playing around(including black ones,ducks and shetland ponies to be seen.
Toilet/shower block clean,showers 50p. Plenty of hard standings. Ideal base for ferry users.

What a gem of a site.
We didn’t book but were greeted by a lovely lady who quickly sorted us out with a pitch with hook up. Plenty of hardstandings for bad weather or grassy pitches for better weather.
Toilet block and site impeccably clean. Also used the laundry facilities which were reasonable – £2.00 per wash which takes over an hour! We went out and left the washing drying on a clothes rack which the warden told us had blown over during the day so she picked it up and asked the chap in the next unit to us to ‘keep an eye on it’
We booked a day trip to Ireland – which got cancelled – so spent a day out and about locally – plenty to do and see. I think the site is used mainly as a stopover to and from Ireland.
Children on the site seemed happy – lots of open spaces – lots of rabbits to watch!
20 minute walk to town – lots of pubs and places to eat. Would recommend this site without hesitation.

A quiet and peaceful, clean and tidy campsite, family run. Level pitches, plenty of hard-standing. Grass pitches landscaped with conifers and shrubs.2 toilets blocks – one new, deposit for key refundable. £11 per pitch with 2 adults – July 2005 – good value.
15 minutes walk to Stranraer town centre and ferry terminal. Large car parks at Agnew Park, on Stranraer seafront (FREE). We had a nice view from our motorhome, watching the ferry come in from here. Agnew Park – boating lake, play equipment etc. Nice promenade stroll.
Recommend a day trip to Ireland. (Sundays only in July/August) Price includes:- Coach tour and admissions into Bushmills distillery and Giants Causeway. Full day- returning to Belfast via beautiful Antrim coastline. Arriving back at Stranraer around midnight. Similar trips run Tuesdays and Thursday throughout the year.
