Cosy Camping Pod
- Simply furnished and equipped wooden cabin
- Electricity for power points and provided toaster and kettle, and TV.
- The only glamping pod on this small rural site where campfires are allowed
The Owner Says
The camping pod sleeps 2 people on beds. An additional young child may be brought in your own cot or mattress. But space is very limited. There is space in front of the pod to pitch a small tent for older children, or book a separate tent pitch. State your needs on your booking form or phone us.
Our camping pod is sheltered from the north by a belt of trees and faces the morning sun. A grassy area in front of the pod features a campfire pit, £42 each night. In low season, mid september and october we will offer a reduction in price for single occupancy by direct booking with ourselves only.

There is also an interesting route to take in to discover all the gardens of Galloway with a nearby favourite being the grounds of Castle Kennedy, well worth a visit.
