Barnsoul is a family owned park tucked into the Beacon Hills just 6 miles from the historic town of Dumfries. Surrounded by acres of farmland and woodlands, it truly is a natural retreat. Make the most of the scenery and the freedom of your own place in the country and relax knowing all the amenities of a large town are on your doorstep. Barnsoul is the perfect place to make magical family memories and escape from the hassle and the stress of everyday life.

Barnsoul Caravan Park sits amongst 80 acres of woodlands, paddocks, ponds, farmland and family friendly adventure! We’ve designed the park to make the most of the stunning natural environment. Wildlife is in abundance including; deer, otters and red squirrels are often spotted at Barnsoul and some of our younger visitors tell us they’ve even seen fairies! Our small pond (catch and release) is stocked with trout, sticklebacks and there are frogs aplenty!

We’re one of Scotland’s most dog friendly holiday parks and canine members of the family will love our large fully-enclosed dog exercise area. With only a handful of pitches snapped up so far, choosing your holiday caravan or lodge at Barnsoul this year means you’ll enjoy the pick of the plots. And if you’re not quite ready to own your own holiday caravan or lodge yet, we have a lovely selection of glamping options, and some great prices on seasonal pitches for tourers.

Come to Barnsoul, switch off, relax, explore and remind yourself how beautiful this country really is

The park offers Touring & Motorhome Pitches, Camping, Glamping and also a good range of new and pre-owned holiday homes available to purchase. The park is open from 1st March to 31st October and benefits from on-site wardens and spacious pitches.

Our glamping at Barnsoul has a fabulous mix of glamping options of all shapes and sizes. We’re always looking for new glamping ideas and have recently added some fantastic ‘Star Pods’ to Barnsoul, just the thing for making the most of Galloway’s dark night skies!

Our Apex Pods and Little Lodges are situated in our "Glamping Village" in the top field with clear, unobstructed views out over the hills. We have WC's in the field to save the walk to the main facilities at night. If you prefer to be closer to the central amenities then our Bothies, Star Pods and Couples Retreats are a better choice as these are located centrally on the park close to the showers, toilet block and communal kitchen and BBQ areas.

All of our glamping options have electricity, lights, heating, mattresses, kettle, toaster, fridge, microwave and a picnic bench. Park facilities include free hot water, shower block with individual cubicles, a communal kitchen, laundry facilities, picnic area, communal BBQ, dog exercise area, children’s play park and mud kitchen, secure bike storage and an on-site warden. The Pods and Lodges have an external fire pit while the Bothies, Couples Retreats and Star Pods have a free-standing BBQ. Choosing the glamping experience that’s right for you and your family is simply a matter of size and style!

Tourers are welcome at Barnsoul for both short stays and seasonal pitches.

Our touring field is set out in a circle and is nestled between Pete's Wood and Crow Wood with farmland spreading out as far as the eye can see. Our touring pitches are all hard standing and include electric hook-up with space to easily accommodate an awning.

Our camping pitches sit in the centre of the touring field on a flat grass area. A few pitches have electric hook up points, and both our touring field and tent pitches are ideally situated close to our amenity block.

An on-site Warden will be on hand to welcome you, help you book in and get parked up.

Our Amenity Block includes free showers with individual cubicles and plenty of hot water.

The communal on-site kitchen has state of the art hobs, microwaves and kettles which can be used by all our visitors. We also have a launderette with two washers and two dryers, and an outside hanging area for damp clothes. When the weather allows visitors are welcome to use the picnic area at the side of the kitchen to enjoy their meals or for an informal get together.

The site also includes a children’s play park and mud kitchen, a huge dog exercise area, secure bike storage, communal BBQ, chemical toilet disposal, countless walks and an abundance of fresh air.

Great little find will certainly be returning

Spent a few nights here in one of the bothy pods - had a great time �� Pods are spotlessly clean with heating, electric and kettle, toaster, microwave & fridge. Also made good use of the built in BBQ and picnic table � Shower block, toilets and kitchen area were clean and tidy and there was a communal bbq area and kids play area too. The park had a lovely feel to it and the wardens were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend and hope to return
