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.

Reception was in brilliant location and the driveway in and signs-posting were very good.As I stay fairly local ithe location was excellent for a weekend break.It’s easy acces to the A75 so getting around is straight forward.The on site cafe is handy for breakfast and lunch and the staff were welcoming and friendly.A really enjoyable stay and would recommend this site to anyone.

Good stay but concern with the cafe, shop and pool

Tate, Susan - 18/09/2022

We had a lovely stay but there was a problem with the shop, cafe and pool. The web site promotes all 3 but during our week stay they were hardly open. I only used the pool twice but was planning to use it a lot more. If the cafe isn’t open then there is no access to the shop or pool. After being out during the day I would have liked to have a swim when getting back to the site but the pool wasn’t accessible as the cafe shut at random times with no warning. I was told that it was a quiet time but you can’t advertise this facility if it’s not going to be open.Why can’t these facilities open for 2 or 3 hours in the morning, close during the day when a lot of tourers are off site and open again for another 2or 3 hours early evening when people get back. We only sat in the cafe for a meal once but would have used it more at tea time if it had been open. Please can you rethink the opening times and I would appreciate a reply to susantate58@gmail.com.

Welcome to the awning graveyard

Harrison, Delia - 17/09/2022

We were disappointed in the pitch we were allocated T19. It was small and surrounded by old caravans with tired awnings. It was convenient for the pub ,which was closed. The site was quiet and there were plenty of pitches they could have given us. It could have been very noisy if the site was full as we were on a junction between two areas of pitches. The welcome was not great and the directions to our pitch poor, and there was little logic to the markings. We were advised to print a map out for ourselves before we arrived. Unfortunately we don‘t have a working printer and I was relying on the screen of my mobile phone.Only good point, we enjoyed meeting the ducks and swans but never found the donkeys

Nice few days

Ryan, Elaine - 15/09/2022

Overall a pleasant stay. Great Sunday roast at The Lairds Inn. A couple of things I would point out is, that the gents toilet door is dragging and was like that on our last visit twelve months ago. The shower rooms could do with paint around the door frames etc. Again, these were the same last year. There was also litter dotted about the site.

Asked to be near tent field due to friends stay sane weekend but we were put other dude of park. Just an observation that it had been worn down and this is probably down to Covid as the makings of a really great site

Fabulous family site, conveniently located with beautiful walks and scenery

Jones, Sally - 08/09/2022

Camping with my 6 year old daughter at Castle Cary was fantastic. Her favourite aspect of the site was the swimming pools, both indoor and outdoor were adequately heated. We found the indoor pool quieter than the outdoor. We had food from the cafe which was great value and tasty. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Even offering to help me pitch the tent in the rain. We enjoyed the visiting wildlife and the resident animals alike. There is a lot to do for young ones close by. My daughter loved the cocoa bean factory and we found some lovely shops and cafes in the local village Kirkudbrigh. Originally our trip had been for 5, but due to illness it was only the two of us that could make it but we are planning to return to the site very soon to share the experience with more family and to enjoy the site some more. I highly recommend Castle Cary as a family friendly site with plenty to do for children all ages.

Alright and cold in parts

Barker, Neville - 07/09/2022

The chalet style shower block is OK but needs upgrading and wasn't very clean at any time visited The fully serviced pitch was great and the pitch itself had more than enough room for the caravan and awning. The pool was an obvious draw for booking but I'm pretty certain the North Sea is warmer apart from that it was clean and alright

Great location, friendly, helpful staff, good pub on site with friendly and efficient staff

Hewitt, Susan - 05/09/2022

The toilets and showers are in urgent need of upgrading. The blocks were dirty and the shower floors are spongy and sinking aroung the plugholes. Also the toilets and showers are unisex which is not ideal. Furthermore, there are simply not enough toilets and showers for the size of the campsite, which is increasing with further pitches being installed. Finally, the chemical disposal point used was leaking and therefore a health hazard in need of attention
