Penpont Floors Caravan and Camping Park is a wonderful holiday location found in the village of Penpont, in the heart of Dumfries and Galloway. The park offers pitches for guests with tents, motorhomes and touring caravans, while also offering a number of luxurious static holiday caravans for hire and sale. Facilities available on site include toilet and shower blocks, and laundry facilities.
Penpont Floors is a quiet holiday retreat, with no on-site bar or clubhouse, and is a great place for anyone looking to enjoy a tranquil break and be at one with nature. What is available for guests is plenty of wonderful outdoor pursuits. There are miles of countryside surrounding the park, all of which are perfect for relaxing walks, cycling, and picnics with loved ones. Guests looking to challenge themselves against the terrain while enjoying breath taking views of Scotland and out across the sea won’t be disappointed, either.
As well as the gentle countryside, guests will find varied terrain that takes in raw cliff tops and coastline, dense woodland, lush valleys, rolling hills and challenging mountain passes, meaning there really is something for everyone, regardless of preference and fitness levels! A number of high peaks can be found close by, all of which are regularly taken on by guests staying at Penpont Floors as well as by tourists in the general area. White Coomb and Hartfell are considered the most challenging yet rewarding climbs, while The Devil’s Beeftub – origin of the name unknown – is also hugely popular. Depending on the time of year, guests might also find there are walking festivals and other events taking place, which are organised from Penpont and other local villages and towns, and offer organised, guided walks of some of the best landscape in the area.
Drumlanrig Castle is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the area, and itself offers a selection of short walks and longer nature trails through its grounds.
Cyclists are often impressed with the area, too, with Dumfries and Galloway having over 450 miles of signposted National Cycle Network routes, while for mountain bikers every trail is passible if they’re up for the challenge.
Unsurprisingly for Scotland, there are plenty of world class golf courses, many of them open to the public and reasonably priced, within reach of the site. As well as enjoying a day’s fishing in the River Nith, which runs close to the park, guests can also head out to other rivers as well as many of the famous Lochs of Scotland, though many comment that the Nith is by far the best location for fishing in this area.
Guests looking further afield for things to do can choose to head to Galloway Forest Park, while Dumfries itself is found a short distance to the south, while a little further down the road many cross the border into England and visit Carlisle. Heading further into Scotland, Glasgow is found to the north, and although is a reasonably long drive it is definitely a city worth visiting.
