Went to Parkdean Southerness Park first week in May, and stayed in a Clyde caravan. The caravan was spacious, great view overlooking the Solway Firth, freeview television, central heating, double glazed and a full sized fridge freezer. The staff were extremely friendly and always cheerful. We ate in the Coast most days and found enough variation to suit our needs. The food was very good and substantial servings, Sunday Lunch good value at £7.95 for two courses. It was our very first visit to Scotland and we found the location stunning, we visited Loch Ken, Castle Douglas, Sweetheart Abbey and Kipsford. We like rural locations so this really suited us, the air was so clean and it was very peaceful. A great holiday and good value too. But please bear in mind that the Solway Firth is actually an estuary so if you want somewhere with a proper sandy beach where you can swim in the sea you need to find a different location, however if you like walking on a shoreline - especially if you are a dog owner - and watching sea birds and breathing clean air, and just being chilled out for a week, I can say Southerness will give you all that and more.
