Patricia and Neil Picken, who run Solway View, are a well-travelled couple who run a working farm, an ideal combination for putting together a campsite that caters to the needs of guests, while also giving them a taste of farm life. There are no scheduled lamb feeding sessions here – they only feed their lambs to save their lives if they have been orphaned, with visiting kids more than welcome to help out. You can choose whether to pitch a tent, sleep in one of their sturdy wigwams or even bring your own caravan or campervan. Either way you will appreciate their spotless shower and toilet block – Patricia's pride and joy! Also on the site are a childrens' playground and a web of walking trails snaking off to an old graveyard and a secluded beach. The main attraction is really being away from it all in a quiet corner of a quiet corner of Scotland.
Wigwams from £25 a night, camping pitches £14 (including two people).
Open all year.
