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.

Adequate but dated

Perrin, Mark - 29/01/2023

No one met us on arrival. Reception closed. No one answered the phone number given to me. Did get email of where to pitch. Couldn't find grey water drain, tried to phone to ask but no one answered.Facilities buildings dated and require updating and repairs to timbers. Bathrooms very nice, plenty of hot water. Dish washing area needs updating. Again plenty of hot water but very dated building. Path to dish washing very slippery, only grass and moss access path.OK for a stopover but wouldn't stay any longer.Great shame as the site has so much potential. Just needs updating and some TLC.

Toilets very clean, great for walking the dog. Just overall had an amazing few days. I could just sit in my caravan alone and watch the views . It’s just naturally stunning , and close to the other amazing wee bits on the Galloway coast

First time using

Marshall, Gary - 05/01/2023

It was a few days before New year so understandably arriving later than expected the reception was closed however prior to arrival that day we received a message with directions and map of site so we knew exactly where we were going and what hard stand we were on. Lovely meal in the Laird's lodge which is on site. book ahead as can be busy. Toilets and shower rooms were the cleanest I have seen on any campsite, and very warm considering the time of year we visited. Highly recommend this site.

Lovely site, shame about the weather!

Crosby, Joanne - 05/01/2023

Only we could go camping in a weatherbomb! The bad bits: due to the weather the roof of the indoor pool had caved in so it wasn't available. One of the toilet/shower blocks had a burst pipe and also wasn't available. Unfortunately for some bizarre reason our pitch was right next to the broken toilets so it was a bit of a trek to use the facilities, not fun in a howling gale and driving rain. This was despite there only being about 5 vans on over 30 pitches closer to the other block. We didn't want to move as we didn't know how many pitches were pre-booked and might be needed, and there was nobody available all weekend to ask.The good bits: The location. The pitch facilities. The pub and cafe. The staff in the pub and cafe. The loch. The motorhome pitches were level and there was plenty of room. Despite the weather we still had a good time, and we will be going back when the rain is a bit less torrential!

Amazing shower rooms

Johnson, Yvonne - 22/12/2022

Booked to stay during freezing temperatures. December 2022. We forgot to stop off at the reception so phoned up and had site info emailed over to us. Lovely level pitch right next to the shower block. Shower rooms were amazing. Lovely and warm. They are mixed m&f but you wouldn’t know. They are very private rooms. Only thing lacking was a mirror in the rooms. Laundry room decent size. Never used it though. We couldn’t get a tv signal. Other than that it was perfect. We went for a walk into Creetown. Bought a few things from the local shop. Fuel station just over road from campsite. Would definitely book to stay again on the site.
