Breathe in the fresh air

Set in a wonderful location, Southerness Holiday Park is right on the edge of the beach, offering lovely sea views across the Solway Firth. Take a stroll on the sands or head into the local area to explore pretty market towns.

Of course, you don’t need to leave the park to have fun. Visit the indoor pool or the outdoor adventure play before enjoying a game of pool or trying your luck at the amusements.

After an action-packed day, you’ll find a wide choice of food and drink on the park, from the bar and restaurant to the takeaway.

There’s lots of ways to enjoy a holiday at Southerness Holiday Park with caravans, lodges, camping and touring. We also offer caravan and lodge ownership.

The whole family will love the large indoor swimming pool. At 25 metres, it’s perfect for swimming lengths but the highlight for the kids is the giant flume and water sprays.

CumnockGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 5 - 14)
Great holiday, unfortunately the soft play was closed for maintenance the whole time we were there and with 3 toddlers, that was one if the reasons we chose southerness, would have been 10 out of 10 if softplay had been open.
