I bought a caravan at this park three years ago. while looking at vans and going through the buying process they could not have been more attentive or helpful but as soon as I had paid my money they ignored every contact I made, broke every promise they made, and treated us like pests. The salesman promised our van would be in place for the easter holiday week so we booked time off work and arrived and the van was not ready and they had no substitute van we could use. The salesman would not... (read more)

i have two toddlers and an 11 year old son. We also have friends with children the same age who came with us on our holiday to southerness last may. The park was small and friendly, very clean and surrounding area very scenic. Night time entertainment was great for the toddlers and my older son and friend spent their evenings in the arcade. this is a quieter park and you do need a car, the mobile farm was fab for all ages, the ice cream factory more suited to older children, however these...

overpriced at 165 pounds approx for 2 nights ( 2 adults and 2 kids)in a crappy caravan, there was no water for about 2 hours, when it did come on it was white and cloudy for about 24 hours, so NOT good value for money.
entertainmant team were great, but even in the cabaret bar theres a cynical ploy to get more money from us, as at the end they say ok kids 1 pound each for the raffle for the toys, then as only 1 wins it, ok kids you can buy the prizes.. yeah yeah greedy monkeys, then......... (read more)

we spent a week at southerness holiday park, although the weather wasn't brilliant we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The caravan was very spacious, a little drafty but comfortable. We enjoyed the peacefulness of it all, the walks along the beach, to the lighthouse, doing a bit of rockpooling and just chilling out. You do need a car, there are plenty of places to visit. I think the shop and facillities could open earlier, for people like us who are early risers. (read more)

just spent a week at Southerness holiday village we wont forget in a hurry.the wind blew all week, mostly inside our caravan,somtimes convinced the windows were actually open.frozen all week.combine all the play areas together then you have at least enough to entertain 20 kids,4 of them being mine,the nearest one was about a 3 mins walk from our van.
The swimming pool is tiny and has to be booked days in advance for a 45 min session,2 life gaurds.
The kids entertainment was great and full... (read more)

We visited the park in early Sept and found it very relaxing (if not a little too relaxing) - would have been lost without a TV and found ourselves venturing the 20 mile round trip to Dumfries each day just for something to do.
You need to pay for a pass to get in to entertainment at night, which is great if you like agadoo and cheesey "Abba" type bands with lots of kids dancing.
It is a nice site, and the people are mostly very pleasant also but if you want some action, might be better to... (read more)

As a young family of four our main concerns are is Southerness holiday village clean? is it safe? is it good value for money? I have to say generally the site is kept in good order. The pitches and toilets/showers are kept in pristine condition and we didn't feel overcrowded. The beaches are within five minutes walking distance however the waters can be quite dangerous and are subject to riptides. There are no lifeguards on duty on these beaches. The swimming pool was a real cause for... (read more)
