Been coming to this site for many years,never get bored of the beautiful sea views and peaceful surroundings.originally came as a child with my family,now bringing the adult children and grandchildren.and the dog the caravans are clean and comfortable,we were lucky to have a lovely sunny week,swimming in the sea and using the lovely swimming pool free of charge.only irritation was the 8.30 closing of the restaurant and chip shop.not much entertainment on due to the football,not the sites fault though.plenty to do around this area as well,I would highly recommend this site.

I stayed here with my family which had children in it wee took them to the club to see what entertainment there was and was told that it was 15 mins for children and that was it due to World Cup.. Which was showing in the bar also the entertainment (a girl dressed in normal clothes) wasn't great at all and the wifi was pretty poor also ... That night there was men driving drunk around the park also brandishing knifes and sizzors which was reported to the bar and police were called and they were removed next morning ! ...

I am sorry you have had a disappointing stay with us at Auchenlarie. The incident you refer to regarding men drink driving and carrying BBQ tools was dealt with quickly and effectively. Unfortunately, incidents like these do happen, but fortunately for Auchenlarie - very, very rarely - but it is how you respond to the problem that is important. I am saddened that this incident is going to tarnish the views of future customers as a result of your comment.

WiFi at Auchenlarie is a relatively new service that is constantly being improved with new technology. Unfortunately, due to our location, signal strength has been an issue and certain areas do have intermittent service. Due to this, we offer free WiFi in our Complex and Sports Bar.

I have spoken with our entertainment team and they have reported that children's entertainment was on offer as usual, it did start a little earlier, but Lindsay (our wonderful children's entertainer) did her usual 40 minutes. Her clothing? Yes, it was standard uniform. Times for some activities - bingo, karaoke, were a little different due to the World Cup matches that were showing in our Sports Bar.

We do try to accommodate all tastes and ages, we have to be flexibe with times (due in this case to the fore-mentioned World Cup) and sometimes locations - moving entertainment to the Sports Bar in low season when numbers of visitors are lower.

I do hope you will visit us again. We appreciate you taking the time to make your review and hope you will be satisfied with my reply.

Just back from a sun holiday here, was very impressed witg its location, brilliant views of the sea straight from caravan. The park is tidy and quiet, there was loads for the kids to do, swimming, soft play, play parks, looking for the wild bunnies and the beaches! All of that was completely free too! Didnt use the entertainment or see what it was like so cant comment on that. We were in the blue zone and was quiet at night with a great view of the sea too! Took the children on 2 days out whilst there one to cream of galloway ice cream factory and once to the cocoa bean chocolate factory both cracking days out so recommend those too! All in all a great stay. Only downside was the mattress on the double bed was not good, could feel every spring and woke up aching but it still didnt ruin a great holiday.

Have been here more that once a little let down this time, the caravan we had needed a good clean, and mums room could have done with curtains not a blind at the window, but that did not stop us having a nice time, the location and views are amazing, the site was quiet when we were there. It's a great area to do touring of the local areas, portpatrick, Galloway forest park, wigtown, too many to name but all fab.

Stayed in Courtyard 4 cottage which was the furthest away from the main road. Cottage was spotless and very spacious. Large double bedroom with en suite shower room, twin room, single room with extra bed and desperate shower room. T.V in all rooms which was great for those wanting to watch different channels. The open plan living room/kitchen is great with double doors on to a decked area where the large hot tub was located. This was used throughout the entire weekend even in the rain - bliss.

This cottage for me seemed to be the best location as your not over looked, you wake up to sheep one morning then cows the next. I will certainly be back.

We didn't use the facilities on the campsite other than buying a few onions from the well stocked shop. But sports bar and bistro area was busy and a lot of happy faces.

I only have one very small negative point for me was the mattress in the double bed was rather springing, but to be honest after being in the hot tub your so relax that you just drift off to sleep.

Can't wait to return
