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.

Only went for a long weekend almost at the end of the season however staff were brilliant and it was the peaceful haven we needed will definitely go again and will seek the same caravan out as it was spotless and more than enough room with beautiful views over the beach x

Caravan was dirty with pubic hair in groves sofa was disgusting and badly stained.
Shower door kept sticking and I cut my hand trying to close it.

Told front desk Nothing happened ty ERT told me they would contact me and nothing
This was the first day I got there. Went back every day and no offer of a move or anything

Complained everyday and still nothing.

WiFi do not pay for it we did and could not get any coverage in our caravan at all so waste of money.

This was one of the best caravan I was told and paid for it as well.

Oh by the way I was told I would get contacted about an apology or refund and guess what? Still nothing been over a week.

Lovely areas stay away from the caravan site.

Hi Mark,

Thank you for writing this review.

We are extremely sorry to hear that your holiday home was not cleaned to the usual Parkdean Resorts standards, it is also unacceptable to hear that despite raising your concerns with the team on park, all issues were not rectified.

We will take this opportunity to share your feedback with the general manager of Southerness, who will look into these processes as a matter of urgency and ensure they do not reoccur in the future.

We do hope we can welcome you to another of our resorts when you feel the time is right as this is certainly not the typical high standards you can expect from ourselves.

Our caravan had been upgraded and it was brilliant
Very warm and cosy, everything we needed was in it.
We didn’t use the entertainment complex. We went for 3 nights with our dog and she loved walks on beach, there was direct access from the park
