Just had 12 nights at Solway View. Excellent site, hot clean showers, superb pitches and very helpful owners. Mostly quiet, no loud music or rowdy groups though play area can get just a little noisy, but children do have to play. Ideal family site.
The views are stunning across the Solway, and there is ample good walking nearby. Cairnsmore of Fleet and Merrick worth climbing though do need a car to get there. Close to a rocky beach, but great just to sit and read, with other beaches within walking distance.
In the next field a local is developing his falconry business, and it was great to see barn owls and his eagle owl.There was no noise from this business and it blended perfectly with the location. Plenty of wildlife to enjoy, with hares running around the site rather than the usual rabbits. Deer can be seen in the woods.
It is a bit of a trek to the shops, Kirkcudbright is about 4 miles away and only has a small Tesco/Co-op, so do need to stock up, can't just nip down the road for a pint of milk.
So, the crucial question........would we come here again? DEFINITELY! This is a 5* site.
