Situated outside the village of Creetown in Wigtownshire, Castle Cary Holiday Park offers guests a quiet and relaxing holiday in the heart of romantic Galloway. The Park has so much to offer, and aims to develop its facilities for guests year after year.

For tourers or motorhomes, choose between a hard-standing pitch with electricity and water connections or a touring pitch with drainage, water and electricity. The Park also has fully serviced hard- standing with grass pitches (some of which permit an awning). Grass pitches are also available for tents or tourers with or without electricity.

For those seeking a more luxury getaway, the Park offers a range of seasonal timber clad lodges and winterised all-season holiday homes.

Castle Cary has a fantastic range of on site amenities, including an insulated chalet-style building with showers, toilets, and baby changing facilities. In addition to these, the chalet also houses a disabled-access toilet, a laundry room with sinks and a dishwashing area.

The activities on site are next to none, namely the indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools which add a splash of added fun to your stay (small charge applies). For younger campers, a heated paddling pool is on hand, as well as a playground, crazy golf course, and a games room with pool tables and video games.

At the centre of the 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. Further to this, a family-run café opens daily onsite and serves breakfasts, meals, snacks, coffees and sweet treats.

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.

The Park is located within the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere Reserve, which covers most of South West Scotland and is a testament to the low levels of light pollution attracting Dark Sky enthusiasts worldwide.

Kirroughtree Forest and Visitor Centre sits 5 miles to the north of Castle Cary and is home to the world class 7Stanes mountain bike venue, offering a variety of routes for bikers of all levels, bike shop, endless walking routes and café.

The market own of Newton Stewart is located 7 miles north west of Castle Cary and has a wider range of amenities including supermarkets and a high school. Newton Stewart is known as the ‘Gateway to the Galloway Hills’ providing visitors with thousands of miles of hillwalking in the area.

lovely setting

Haslam, Scott - 08/07/2024

a nice 3 day stay at Castle Cary, receptionist was vey friendly on arrival, site appeared clean & well kept. pitch was a good size, site not too busy & there seems to have been some consideration made to spread guests out so not everyone squashed together. toilet/shower blocks were well maintained - did get covered in grass but unavoidable when it was just being cut, was cleaned out by the next morning. the uni-sex block wasnt an issue as all cubicles enclosed offering sink, toilet/shower, water hot. used cafe for a take away pizza & breakfast - both decent. used the pub twice for evening meals - food very good & staff very accommodating & friendly in the restaurant. They even put the England game on in the outside eating area.Generally quiet at night, except noise on the Sunday night from what i assume are residence lodges behind us, chatting, climbing over the fence (practically coming in our tent) and playing games on the empty pitches at 22.30 when people were sleeping!

The pitch we had was one of the older pitches and other residents used it to go to swimming pools etc sonic sitting outside they still walk past you which was a bit annoying

Brilliant place.

Radwell, Eve - 04/07/2024

Loved the stay and it had everything that we needed onsite. The kids loved all of the bunnies and feeding the honkies. The only things that I would recommend for future would be toilets and water tap within the tent pitch

Friendly helpfully staff

Murray, Kevin - 03/07/2024

Had a great pitch next to the swing park and only 1000 meters from the pub what more do you need. The showers all had a toilet and a sink in the one cubical and were nice and very well maintained. The only comment is that the shower screen could be bigger to prevent mess and help the bathroom stay in gd condition

Perfect for the family 💕

The overall experience was brilliant. First camping trip with my 3 year old, and we will be back! Great little activities to keep him entertained. Very friendly and helpful staff and great facilities. Toilet/shower areas were very clean and felt safe to use. Only criticism would be that the indoor pool changing facilities is a little run down. But otherwise what is on offer and for the price you charge. Brilliant little holiday 💕.
