Visited the site during convalescence from surgery; staying at friend's Lodge.

Peaceful location with good views across open country. Lodge was luxurious, with similar available for rental.

No shop or restaurant on site but village within easy reach.

This was a return visit after many years and we were not disappointed. The park was very well maintained with lovely landscaping and lots of wildlife around including red squirrels. The caravan was new, very clean and one of the best equipped that we've ever stayed in. All the st

Are the midges bad?? Ha ha...just out of curiosity? Thanks
Hi, Thanks for your question about midges. We do have midges and other insects on Park however they are not as ferocious as the ones further north. The midges don't appear to cause any issues for Owners and Guests as we get very little feedback or complaints about them. I hope this helps.

Hello, I'm looking for a holiday for my kids myself and our rescue dog who is nervous around dogs who are off leash and run up to him.My dog would be leashed and depending on how busy the park is with dogs he may need to be muzzled.Are there a lot of dogs and do people have they're dogs under control?
Hi. When we were there in February the caravan park wasn't busy with dogs. Any dogs that were there were small terrier types and all on leads which is the park policy. If you do use the caravan park I would recommend crossing the main road and walking your dog in the forest opposite the site rather than claiming to the top of the steep hill within the site grounds.

Are you aloud camp fires on site using a fire pit.
Hi Kyle, sorry for the delay, email died on Wednesday. If you have a portable fire pit I would be delighted for you to use it, please use my name to reassure my staff if you come to Kippford during my absence! Robin .

Thanks for your lovely review Laura, I'm delighted that you enjoyed your first holiday as a family of three! Robin Aston (the park owner)
I am going to Boston VIP lodge this weekend on our first visit. It is to celebrate my husband s 60th birthday.I wonder if anyone can tell me if the kitchen has ample dishes and cutlery etc as all the reviews I have read everyone seems to gloss over contents of kitchen. Thanks would appreciate your feedback.
The kitchen is very well equipped but no salt, pepper or vinegar. Plenty of crockery, cutlery, wine glasses and cooking utensils.

"Pitch 29 is very spacious ...its next to road but the noise didnt bother us ...we got the sun from morning till 9pm"
"WiFi speed is not that good okay phone and browsing."
"Bit of a climb if walking back, very steep. But an elevated position."
"Tent pitches next to the road are noisier"
"The higher up the site the better if you like views (and can walk or drive up). Otherwise choose lower down closer to reception."
