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.

5 Things To Make Your Trip Memorable

The River Nith and old bridge at Dumfries 1

Discover Dumfries

Walk across the sandstone bridges over the river at Dumfries to admire the stunning architecture. Visit the town’s Greyfriars Church or Robert Burns House, the home of Scotland’s best-loved poet.

The pool inflatables at Southerness 2

Family Swims

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. 

A red panda in a tree 3

Galloway Wildlife Park

Discover almost 150 animals in a beautiful woodland setting at Galloway Wildlife Park. Enjoy pretty walks while meeting ring-tailed lemur, otters and more at this wild animal conservation centre.

Sweetheart Abbey 4

Sweetheart Abbey

Step back in time with a visit to Sweetheart Abbey. Over 700 years old, this impressive abbey offers an insight into Lady Dervorgilla who founded the abbey in tribute to her beloved husband, John Balliol.

Tasty Fare

Enjoy a range of food and drink on the park. Relax with a coffee on the terrace, savour a meal at the restaurant or treat the kids to burgers from the 50s-inspired takeaway.

We had a lovely first family holiday. Lots of stuff to keep our two 3 year olds entertained from swimming to the beach to soft play to the entertainment. We will definitely be returning again in the future.

The caravan,on-site facilities were very good. Only downside was the poor or unlit street lights around the entertainments area in particular.
