Parkdean - Southerness Holiday Park
Reviewed 8 July 2011

Hi. We are just back from Southerness and had a thoroughly good time. The caravan was clean, large and had central heating, microwave, big fridge & freezer. The park itself is quite large but it never seemed that busy. Swimming pool was lovely and extremely clean. Entertainment was the usual kids disco stuff with dressed up characters but this is what the kids love. Park is right on the beach - 2 sides to the beach - 1 with sand and the other with rocks - great for exploring and bringing crabs back to the caravan - aaah. Just the break that we required.

we stayed with parkdean holidays and what can i say i was suprised after reading all the horrid reveiws i was a bit reluctant to come here, but we loved it!!!! the staff were great fun, my 2 yr old loved all the activitys nd she loved the pool nd sid and lizzie were fab with all the kids,,,, we stayed in a dee caravan nd was very suprised it was loverly nd clean nd very spacious the only thing that is letting the sight down, is no cash point!!!! and the ladies toilets in the entertainment bar were awfull!!!! so my advice is take plenty of cash, there is a small shop in the village that do cash back,we will defo be goin back next year!!! if ur looking for 5* treatment u are goin to the wrong place dont expect too much then u wont be disapointed we loved every min and didnt want to come home!

I am staying here at the moment in the touring park. I have been here one night and got 3 more to go and seriously considering leaving! The toilets and showers are absolutely disgusting, in fact I'd be cleaner if I didn't bother showering at all. Ladies, if you don't wash your hair every day make sure you take a shower hat as you have no choice but to get your hair wet. The showers are either freezing or burning hot and the shower cubicles are so small you will have no where to run once the water either freezes you to death or gives you 3rd degree burns!!
They also have poster every where about there new £2 million pound swimming pool, I think they should of saved there money and spent a good £10, 000 on the shower and toilet blocks! And for the record the swimming pool has no way had that all this Money spent on it! The list is endless. I will never return! I wish I had read these reviews before I booked!

Have stayed at Parkdean holiday parks for the last 3 years, different one each time, and love the way their parks are run and the friendliness of their staff. Was slightly concerned after reading some reviews on here but as we were meeting friends here, went ahead. So glad that we did ! Had a fabulous time, park is lovely, staff their usual friendly and helpful selves and Parkdean's caravans superb value for money and well maintained.
Setting is great, loads to see and do for kids roundabout- don't miss Mabie farm park or Dumfries aviation museum if you have kids with you.
Evening entertainment great, Sid & Lizzie are heroes(!), restaurant one good meal,one bad. Pool complex superb, was a little cold but we are used to quite a warm pool, kids play areas excellent and best of all - Parkdean don't rip you off !!!

Just back from a weekend in a three bed top end caravan. Wouldn't normally do this sort of holiday but had a surprisingly great time. Great for families with young children and entertainment crew really work hard to ensure everyone enjoys themselves.
Caravan had very spacious living area and extremely clean.
Food was quite good in Coast bar and excellent in the local pub nearby.
Don't understand the complaint about Sid and Lizzie from other visitor as all kids i witnessed seemed to adore them and follow them around.

our family of 4 stayed at the park recently and had a great time the evening entertainment was superb for both children and adults alike. For the kids sid n lizzies disco was a hit along with all the games and prizes and for the adults one of scotlands premier bands 'Waterfront'. the food in the coast bar was reasoable for the price and very fast which was great, the menu could hav been a bit more varied however. A great time was had by all and we are returning during the school holidays.
