Located on an eco-friendly working farm beside the sea, this site offers cosy wooden wigwams that sleep 5 near the delightful rural area of Kirkcudbright. 

The 5 wigwams are perfect for those who are new to camping as they are heated and well insulated, keeping you warm and cosy throughout the night. Inside they have raised bed platforms with comfy mattresses provided, so all you need to bring is your sleeping bag or bed linen, no more having to put up a tent on arrival! The kitchenette is great for basic cooking with a microwave/grill, kettle, toaster and fridge and the en-suite toilet is the icing on the cake. There is a heated modern toilet and shower block on site if needed. Outside the wigwam you can relax by the camp fire, toasting marshmallows and enjoying the view of the sea, or alternatively making a wish on a shooting star! Children will enjoy playing in the park area and there is even an off lead area for your dog! 

Locally you can visit the town of Kirkcudbright where you will find many independent shops and restaurants/takeaways as well as a bustling harbour. The beach is the perfect place for children and dogs alike to burn off some energy and has views across to the lighthouse on Ross Island. Alternatively visit the Cocoabean Company and join in an interative workshop and make your own chocolates! Afterwards children can play in the extensive indoor soft play and outdoor play areas. 

There are also camping pitches on site - grass or hardstanding and these benefit from a picnic bench and firepit. Some have electric hook-up too. 

Prices for the wigwams start from £43 for the wigwam, one adult and a car. A family of 2 adults and 2 children between the ages of 5-16 costs £61 per night. Children under 5 stay for free.

Caravan and camping pitches also available.

2 dogs welcome per pitch at an extra charge. Minimum 2/3 night stay for wigwams. Minimum 2 night stay for a pitch.
