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 cleanliness of your caravans are dismal on this site. Your staff need retraining.
my family and I have used Park Deans for several of our holidays and have never been so disappointed as with this site.We will look very closely at your reviews before booking with you again .

We had a great holiday, the facilities were good and majority of staff were great. Particularly the entertainment staff in the morning with the young kids. There was also one of the arcade staff that was great with my kids and the lovely lady in the shop within the shower helped prevent a major breakdown from my daughter! The lifeguards at the pool were really good and made sure everyone was safe and abiding by rules, particularly when another guest was taking pictures of their kids in the pool and obviously there was a lot of other children in the pool it was really inappropriate. The staff were straight there stopping it, and again when the guest was trying to hide and do it!
