For that quiet and relaxing holiday in the heart of romantic Galloway. Castle Cary has much to offer, and constantly adds to and improves its facilities year after year. We can now offer a range of seasonal timber clad lodges and winterised all season holiday homes.

At the centre of our holiday park lies an old Scottish baronial-style castle dating from around 1580. The Laird’s Inn, converted from part of the old castle, is most welcoming with it’s ‘olde worlde’ charm, created by a décor of wooden beams, stone walls and open fires.

On a sunny day you can sit, drink, eat and relax on its large terrace, enjoying magnificent panoramic views over fields, woodlands and the estuary of the river Cree.

A comprehensive range of facilities and activities awaits you on site. We have normal hard-standing pitches with electricity and water connections for tourers or Super Deluxe touring pitches with drainage, TV aerial connection, dyke or fence and hedge separation.

We have a range of 2 and 3 rental accommodation available for nightly stays (3 night minimum stay). Some of our units are pet friendly.

Camping

Brown, Justin - 06/05/2022

We camped last year near the park and had a great holiday, on returning this year to find the camping area had moved to the other field due to electric points put in for caravans. Was really noisy right beside the A75 traffic all night no lightning , bins and a good bit away from the toilet block for the kids. This has put us retuning in the summer.

The site is neat and great for a quiet break. Staff were fantastic!! So friendly and helpful. The cleaners were amazing too,what a team! Showers were either freezing or scolding and loos could do with an upgrade but we did enjoy our stay and we will be back.

Overnight stay

My husband, myself and two dogs had a night at Castle Cary at Easter. The site is clean and tidy with very friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in the area that had recently been laid out with new, fully equipped pitches. It was a bit featureless but this is to be expected in a new site. The rest of the site has walled and hedged pitches. There is a loch and woodland walks and is only a short walk to Creetown.

Holidaying with a group of friends

Smith, Steven - 16/04/2022

We booked for 5 nights and loved it. The site is as good as I remember. Lots of investment for the future which I love to see. Toilets are good but the new shower block is amazing. Clean tidy and top quality. 1 small draw back is a few teething problems with the showers. There was a problem with the boiler which ment the shower took a while to get hot then sometimes got too hot, even for me. Staff were told about it and move in swiftly to try to rectify the issue. Didn’t dampen our holiday 1 bit. First class!!!!!

Great spot for the night

Haynes, Aimee - 13/04/2022

Gorgeous surroundings only helped by an actual castle on site with a restaurant (booking strongly advised!) - the Laird's Inn has a heated patio, excellent food and is dog friendly, so a bonus for us! The campsite itself is beautiful with a range of pitch types to choose from at a reasonable price. The camping field is close to the main road so you do get a bit of traffic noise, but it's well worth it for the view and the convenience of being close to everywhere. There is a beautiful Loch in the middle that you can fish on (permits available for residents) and lots of wildlife you can see (Swan, ducks, rabbits and herons on one short walk). Loads of woodland walks with streams and hills to discover, including a lovely walk into the village with shops and conveniences. The Cafe and Shop (open until 9pm) centre boasts a gaming suite complete with Air Hockey table, sit in and takeaway food and swimming pools to entertain. The staff were friendly and very accommodating for late arrivals such as ourselves and, despite the freezing temperatures, we were very comfortable here.

Excellent place to stay

Gray, Alistair - 04/04/2022

Best bathroom facilities we've ever had and all heated! Staff were really friendly and informative, nothing was too much trouble. As we were arriving after reception had closed they emailed us with a park map and our pitch location which was easy to follow and allowed us to get parked up straight away. Not all facilities were open as we were there in March, however, everything was being readied for the start of the season proper. Really friendly people on site and some have permanent pitches there. The pitches were a good size, we picked one with a dyke on one side and a hedge on the other. These pitches were big enough for a caravan with large awning and a car and plenty room to sit aswell. We would definitely recommend this site to anyone and will without doubt be vivisting it again.

Lovely, peaceful park

Palmer, Ashleigh - 27/01/2022

We spent two nights at Castle Cary and thoroughly enjoyed it. The park was blissfully quiet at night, and the play park was enough to entertain two young children during the day.The walk to the village is only around 15 minutes, but I would recommend going past the signposted woodland path and using the same road you come in by. We ate at the Lairds Inn one night, and again it was lovely. The only small issue we had was that there was no hot water in the showers but the site staff were out fixing it very quickly. Looking forward to coming back when all of the facilities are open!
