Set in well-maintained lawns with tarred roads, Lighthouse Leisure is less than a 2 minute walk from the beach and the historic Southerness Lighthouse.

On site we have an adventure playground and leisure complex offering plenty of fun and relaxation for all the family. The park has been in operation for nearly 50 years and being family owned, has built up a well-established warm and friendly atmosphere.

In addition to our 8 month camping pitches, we also operate as a child friendly park and have a fantastic outdoor play area for our younger guests to enjoy. Our touring area is suitable for tents/tourers/motorhomes and have an adjacent modernised toilet and shower facility.

As an ideal opportunity to enjoy the freedom of self-catering, guests can also relax in the comfort and luxury of our holiday caravans. We offer 2/3 bedroom Comfort Plus grade vans and 2/3 bedroom Comfort Pet Friendly caravans with double glazing and central heating.

All caravans have showers. Linen is provided but we ask that you supply your own towels. Cots and highchairs are available to hire. All gas and electric is included in the price.

Onsite, guests can avail of our quality Leisure Centre facility with its own swimming pool, coffee shop, entertainment room, bar, and separate bar for adults only. Immediately adjacent the Park is a fully stocked shop and a regular bus service from the village to Dumfries and intermediate villages.

Off site, there is a host of activities and past times for guests to enjoy. The park is situated next to the championship Southerness Golf Club and there are seven other courses of varying size within a 15 mile radius of Southerness. For those with an interest in angling, sea fishing is available along the coast and a selection of Loch and river fishing inland.

This area also offers several top quality cycling routes within just a 15 minute drive, and has many other cycle routes/paths in the surrounding area. With our prime location, we are also fortunate to have many coastal and forest walks in the surrounding area.

As a perfect day out for the whole family, Dumfries is a short 20 minute drive away where there is the Ice Bowl, Museum and Camera Obscura, the Aviation Museum, Robert Burns Centre, Caerlaveroch Castle, Britain’s only triangular castle and of course the many high street shops. Drumlanrig Caste and Country Park is just 18 miles North of Dumfries and offers something for all the family with an outstanding adventure play park, castle tours, craft workshop, cycle hire, walks and trails.

Less than an hour’s drive away is the world famous Blacksmith’s shop at Gretna Green where romantic runaway marriages were forged in past times. Also Gretna Gateway Outlet Village with around 50 stores and 5 cafes.

Lovely holiday

This is our 3rd visit to Lighthouse Leisure at Southerness and we've come to love it. The caravan was perfect for accommodation but the beach and surrounding scenery draws us there. We drove along to Rockcliffe and spent the day on the beach and in swimming. A trip to Kirkcudbright and Castle Douglas another day. The chip shop at Southerness was good and reasonable priced. Have booked to come back. The staff at check in were great and the shop has plenty provisions.

Nice location

Millin, Sandra - 28/06/2024

Nice location, we stayed in the touring site which was right next to the entertainment & toilet block. Only a 5 minute walk down to the beach, there are a couple of pubs serving food only a few mins away & also an onsite shop & fish, chip shop & arcades.The only thing that let this site down was the showers. They are press button that only last around 10 seconds & I had to press the button between 20 & 30 times before any hot water came through. We were travelling with my in-laws. There are no disabled facilities therefore my father in-law was unable to take my mother in-law to the toilet (just as well I was there) & she could not shower as there are no handles or equipment in the showers.

Lovely for a short break

Kelly, D - 25/06/2024

Southerness is a lovely place to serve as a base for exploring Dumfries and Galloway and surrounding areas. Because it is 'out of the way' it is assumed you have transport to get around easily. A compact park, the caravans and surroundings are well kept and doesn't seem to attract the more rowdy types. Facilities on site are reasonable if small in scale - the staff are friendly and helpful so it has all the ingredients for a restful stay. We'll be back again for certain.
