Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were very lucky to have found this beautiful holiday park when we arrived, via the ferry from Larne to Cairnryan, in the rolling sheep and cattle countryside above Luce Bay in Dumfries and Galloway.
We found ourselves there at the start of the global pandemic and were made very welcome to stay on. We ended up being there for over three months. It was one of the most relaxing experiences of our lives and the owners, Robert and Richard, and their staff made us very welcome.
The caravan they let to us, directly overlooked the bay some three miles to the south. The two bedroom caravan itself was of a very high specification with gas central heating, TV, comfortable furnishings and a modern and well stocked, fitted kitchen. There was a generous shower room with basin and toilet and the master bedroom had a small ensuite and good-sized fitted wardrobe and other cupboards, all in good order.
The large site lies about 350 feet above beautiful Luce Bay on a hill overlooking the Isle of Man, forty miles to the south, and the Mountains of Mourne, sixty miles to the west, in County Down, Northern Ireland. It has large play areas for children, with climbing and recreational equipment.
We particularly liked the layout, which was spacious and not at all cramped, as some holiday parks are. It lies in a very quiet country road, surrounded by open countryside, about two miles above Glenluce.
This corner of Dumfries and Galloway is, in our opinion, an undiscovered gem. Luce Bay is the site of one of the most famous UFO sightings in 1957, known as the West Freugh Incident.
Glenluce Abbey nearby, was founded in 1190, as a Cistercian Monastery, and is famous as a place Robert the Bruce stayed in 1329, whilst on his pilgrimage.
Luce Bay has a huge sandy beach, seven miles long and we spent many lovely afternoons walking on it, almost alone. The Southern Upland Way walk is not far away near the village of New Luce and we walked many miles east along it towards Knowe. We also walked along it further east, through Glen Trool, to Loch Trool, near Galloway forest park, also where Robert the Bruce camped in 1307.
To the west, lies the beautiful countryside of the Rhins peninsular, at the southern tip of which lies the Mull of Galloway lighthouse, the most southerly point in Scotland. On the west side lies the village of Portpatrick, where we could see Ireland, some 35 miles away. We walked north, along the cliff tops to the little bays where seals were playing.
All in all a thoroughly lovely base to stay and from which to explore.

Just spent a week here in Glenluce. We stayed in a 2 bedroom lodge with a hot tub. The lodge was new and had everything you could need. Very modern Kitchen dishwasher full size fridge freezer oven microwave. All utensils included even down to kitchen cleaner dishwasher tablets. Not that much to do but with covid and end of season we didn’t expect much. Took dvds when the weather was bad. My only criticism was as the weather was poor we couldn’t always get a signal on the TV. I also think that a vacuum would of been useful as we took 2 dogs and would of liked to of left the lodge as we found it. Will definitely return.

I have just returned from a 4 night break at Whitecairn Holiday Park staying in the Glen Nevis Lodge with hot tub. I was looking for a good quiet base somewhere near the coast for walks and getting out and about. What a perfect place this was. No hustle and bustle in a really quiet and peaceful location but good access to the main routes to get out and about.

Upon arrival the lodge was immaculate. It was perfectly stocked with everything you will need for a self catering stay, plenty of cutlery, crockery, pans and trays. Plastic cups were even supplied for use in the amaaaazing hot tub. The beds were all clean and made up and were very comfy. Plenty of towels were provided with more than enough to last a family of 5 for our stay. The lodge also had hair dryer, washer, dish washer, iron and ironing board etc if needed.

The grounds are extrmely well kept and clean, lodges and caravans well spaced so you dont feel on top of each other and nice to walk the dog around without bothering anyone. The hot tubs all have privacy fences around them so you arent overlooked when you are enjoying your relaxation.

There is no shop onsite but the nearest shop is a 5 minute drive away if you need quick essentials and there is a Lidl, Tesco and Morrisons in Stranraer which is an easy 15/20 minute drive away.

Overall a fabulous stay and would return without hesitation

We stayed on the Glenluce caravan park at the end of august. We have a three year old and a baby.
Caravan was beautiful and spotless and a travel cot was loaned to us on arrival. Inside the caravan there were antibacterial wipes, soaps, bin bags, toilet rolls included for our stay. The caravan was also professionally sprayed prior to our stay for infection control which made us feel safe.
Site was extremely quiet which was what we wanted given the current pandemic. There didnt appear to be any other children on this site and the play area wasnt actually on the site, its the local village play area just up the street. The whitecairn site seemed to have more children with a play area in the centre although this is too far too walk. The road leading between the whitecairn and glenluce site is national speed limit with no path meaning we could not walk to it with two children. The glenluce site did appear more scenic as we had a lovely view from the caravan. The owner was lovely and friendly and even posted my coat back to me when id left it there.
The location is very quiet but again this is what we wanted from our stay. We enjoyed a lovely few days here.

We have just returned from a 4 night stay here acter our holiday abroad was cancelled due to covid. We had 3 cabins, we stayed in Juniper which was on the new part of the site. The place was immaculate!! Hats off ro all the team at Whitecairn as the do a great job in and outside of the cabins. It was a home from home with every little detail catered for, washing maching, ironing eqpt, dishwasher, a godsend for us with 2 small children. We had 1 double room with ensuite and a twin with a bathroom, utility room and a large living dining area. Although we brough our own food stuff etc they had supplied handwashes, cleaning materials for ypur stay. Adrian the handy man was round every morning to clean amd maintain our hottub and was great with the kids always entertaining them as he went. This place is ideal for a relaxing break with the hills, seaview and hottub although if your planning on going anywhere you do need to drive, there is nothing round about. The nearest town is stranraer for supermarkets and resteraunts etc about 10 miles. Lovley place though and so many beautiful beaches, exploring to do.

We stayed (couple one child) in Argyll Lodge 27 for 7 nights.

We were blown away when we walked around, the lodges were clean, spacious and had everything you would need. It literally was a home away from home down to small details like tin foil being provided.

The hot tub was well maintained and easy to use, very private also.

The location was peaceful and beautifully maintained. Both ponds were teaming with fish and we unsuccessfully tried to catch some and watched to actual fishers!

We did take a small portable WiFi device but signal was intermittent due to remote location - it was enough to stream a few movies at night and thankfully that was all we needed (there was a dvd player provided we could have also used).

We done many day trips in the surrounding areas as well as taking a ferry to Belfast. The reception staff provided us with lots of leaflets and information on the surrounding areas. Would highly recommend kitchen coos and ewes for a Highland Cow experience and The Cock Inn for a lovely meal on the beach front. Both are 10mins drive away.

Thanks for a lovely stay and to everyone onsite for being so welcoming.

Outstanding weekend stay in the Mulberry Lodge with private hot tub. On arrival our check in was friendly and efficient. The drive to the lodge was a hint of what was to come, spotless and tidy. The lodges are well spaced out giving you privacy. The lodge itself was extremely spacious, well equipped and clean. Washing machine and dishwasher will the appropriate cleaning items. The chocolates and Prosecco went down a treat... we could not of picked the worst weekend for weather but the lodge was warm with plenty of hot water. The hot tub was perfect with plastic decking ( so no splinters in our feet). Checkout was covid friendly which included bagging bedding but this is a small sacrifice to keep staff safe. I cannot fault the location, lodge or friendly staff. Highly recommend this family run holiday park. Cannot wait for next year for our return. So a big thank you to all concerned for making our weekend special.

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Whitecairn. The entire park is immaculate throughout and oozes a tranquil calmness that is just wonderful. The layout of the park has been well thought out and the site is a treat to stroll around with its fishing ponds and lovely safe, flat road and walkways throughout. The views out to sea are stunning and the site is also surrounded by the most beautiful farmland. The staff are so welcoming and Debbie really does go the extra mile to ensure all is nothing less than 100% perfect for your stay. We met one of the park owners Robert, who is very active in the maintenance of the park and knows everything about the site first hand, it was very obvious that they strive to maintain such high standards and progress the site with the same mindset. I must also recommend the delicious fresh eggs they offer, they themselves are even worth a revisit for!

Stayed 4 nights and wished we could stay longer. Booked the Highland Spa 2 (2 beds with hot tub) and was not disappointed. We were in L30 which is located on a corner next to the warden on a slightly larger plot and the bedroom and kitchen overlook a garden. Lovely, spacious, clean and cozy layout with mod cons and well equipped kitchen. Entrance is via a small utility room with sink and washing machine. 1st bedroom has ensuite shower room and 2nd bedroom has it's own door to the main bathroom. The bathroom door in the hall can be locked, making the 2nd bedroom en suite too. Both bedrooms have walk-in wardrobes. It doesn't mention a hairdryer, washing liquid, dishwasher tablets, handwash, tin foil and sponge/scourer are provided which were handy when we arrived. Open plan living, dining, kitchen is full height. We were welcomed by Adrian who was lovely, helpful and advised us of some local walks, eateries and places of interest, as did the lady working with him. He was friendly and polite and respected our privacy, our lodge was next to his. Don't hesitate to book, it's amazing.

Came here at the weekend for a nice relaxing break away for my birthday. Cannot fault the lodge or facilities at all absolutely spotless and an amazing place to stay. However , on Friday night we were in the hot tub and lost track of time. At 10 past 11 a woman came round and told us to get out as we were 10 minutes over the curfew. The hot tub states no electronics so we did not have our phones for the time and understandably didn’t realise that we were 10 mins over. Anyway as we were all getting out and cleaning up the same woman and a man came back a few minutes later and proceeded to shout at us like children to get out (they also brought a dog not sure if that was to try and be intimidating). We apologised several times. The next morning we were all up making breakfast and the very ignorant hot tub cleaner proceeded to come into our lodge without knocking , unmasked and no social distancing and screamed at us like children for being in the hot tub 10 MINUTES after the curfew. He tried to get a reaction from us and when we politely asked him to get out and close the door he continued to stand there shouting like a mad man. I’d see the point if we were being rowdy etc but we weren’t and we already apologised to the woman who came round the night before. The next night he came round to check the hot tub (which we weren’t in) and we didn’t realise who it was so my boyfriend went out to see who was there and the weird hot tub man proceeded to challenge my boyfriend asking if there was a problem. We were only checking who it was. Completely unprofessional. We were going to come back again on February but this has completely put us off which is a shame as it’s such a beautiful place. This man needs to learn manners and also learn to comply with COVID 19 rules.

youd have to contact the owner i think that way you can be 100 per cent certain, if allowed to do it, i think should be ok but be best to ask first

The decking around the lodge and hot tub has a fence. There is a gate which you can close. The dogs will be able to run around the decking and the hot tub area without getting out.

You are but it has to be a proper one with a stand, not the little trays that burn the grass.
