The "Wee Hoose" contains a shower, toilet and wash hand basin for exclusive use of the CL. Wifi is also available as well as an excellent TV reception.
Mains of Machermore is a family run farm situated a mile from the market town of Newton Stewart, also known as the Gateway to the Galloway Hills. The CL site benefits from lovely views of the surrounding hills as well as our Belted Galloway cattle, other livestock and wildlife which live here on the farm. We are always delighted when our summer visitors of swallows and swifts return each year.
Close by there are an abundance of activities. Being the Gateway to the Galloway Hills there are lots of walks with a Walking Festival every year in May. Wigtown, Scotlands Booktown, is a 15 minute drive away with the annual Book Festival that happens at the end of September which usually has around 500 different events over the course of ten days. Horse riding is less than a mile away, 7 stanes mountain bike course approximately 5 miles, Laggan Outdoor Activity centre (15 minute drive), golf courses, beaches, places of historical interests are all close by. We are also on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park and Dark Sky Park which gives wonderful opportunities to see the solar system in all its splendour.

Marvelous new site!
We have just returned from a two-day break at this new farm CL. We were hugely impressed by the location of the sie and its beautiful surroundings. Its location is great for exploring the Solway coast and the Galloway hills, while at the same time enjoying quick access to the A75 Euro route while only a few minutes from the lovely little town of Newton Stewart. On arrival,l we were extended a warm welcome by the site owner, Isabel who was happy to chat and give us a run down on the site and area. A huge amount of thought has gone into creating this terrific site which, unusually for a lot of CL's, has a hard standing road in and 5 level hardstanding pitches with fresh water, grey water disposal and electrical hook up. This is a truly all year site which has received considerable investment and abolishes wheel spinning and calls for a 4x4 or tractor to get you out of a difficult position in poor weather. The on-site 'Wee Hoose' supplies a very roomy toilet, shower/wet room and wash hand basin. At the entrance, there is an information room with the usual tourist literature. This site is ideal for a few days break but will also cater for longer holidays for those who wish to explore this lovely part of the world. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back. It is a site which has something for everyone and Isabel and her husband George will make you very welcome.
We stayed for three nights after a very warm welcome from Isabel and George. The CL is brand new with hard standings and fully serviced pitches. The surprise was the beautifully presented wet room and information centre in he wooden cabin on site. Surrounded by farm animals and with many bird species visiting the hedgerows and farm buildings there was plenty to look at from the 'van. Newton Stewart is a reasonable walk away. For cyclists National Cycle Route 7 is close by with easy access. Marvelous site and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
