I spent my 40th birthday here with my husband, who is registered blind along with our dog Lillly and never have we all felt so relaxed as we did here at Kippford. We stayed in a bungalow and could not have been happier. The bungalows are spacious and comfy. We did not want to leave as it felt like being at home - apart from the fact that at Kippford we had excellent walks and views on our doorstep. We can't wait to come back next year and have already booked up!

We stayed here in September 2011 in one of the bungalows which was clean and functional. If you want a touch of luxury go for the lodges which we saw on the way out and will definately book when we return.

Clean, well organised and helpful staff (forget the negative stuff on this site it was not our experience at all) and without the downmarket facilities that sometimes turn such sites into a nightmare for all.

Steep site up to the woodland walk so take a breather and take in the view....wow!

Kippford Vllage is beautiful, both local pubs are great (had food in the Anchor which was very good). Visited Rockcliffe and other bays, the Tattoo at Kirkcudbright (absolute bonus as we did not know it was on...wow again). Just a beautiful place with lots to see and do. We went as a family with a 3 year old and a 1 year old as we are gluttens for punishment but they simply loved the beaches and the Cream o Galloway we can also recommend.

A hidden gem (or so i thought but when i came back to work to describe where i had been it seems we were the ones who were not in the know)

We will be back!!!

Room Tip: The bungalows are great but they are functional, absolutely fine for us. But if you want a bit more of a homely feel with better facilities go for a lodge. We have two very young children so it was nice that we were not going to break anything expensive

Good site. Clean hot showers. Pitches crammed in for tents. Barrier would prevent 7am cars driving about.

Staff good, chatted about mtb in the area, thats why we were there.

Overall good, would return.

Stayed in a lodge at this site. Accommodation was good. First night was cold as couldnt get heating to work properly in some rooms. Trip down to reception and girl was very helpful and explained where the sockets etc were for switching on heating as not always in same room. Kids play area was great for our 2 year old. Great to be able to walk about site and see squirrels etc. Well designed site which hasnt followed the route of some of its rivals with commercialism. Site is well placed for touring around and plenty to see and do for kids in the area.

If your looking for a relaxing break this is the place to go.

Stayed at this site for 4 nights camping to do mountain biking in the area. Found the tent pitches to be squeezed in amongst the caravans and did not have much space. Nowhere really to park the car. Wardens not very friendly, knowledgeable or helpful when it came to asking about the 7stanes routes.
Usually stay at the campsite in Rockciffe and much prefer it to this one. It's more open, lots of space for tents and has much better views (where the tents are at Kippford just look out onto other caravans, tents and the road).

I find this report suspicious because 6 weeks or so ago a client with the same name suposedly stayed in a rental caravan. We are experiencing a spate of 'unfriendly staff' reviews that may be a linked and ongoing attack.
