Brighouse Bay Holiday Park boasts a fantastic location on the scenic Dumfries & Galloway coastline that makes it the ideal destination for holidays in Scotland. With a spacious country park feel, a location close to a superb sandy beach, and a gorgeous rural setting surrounding it, Brighouse Bay offers exactly what you want for a break by the coast.
This park is the perfect place for a golfing holiday in Scotland, with its own 18-hole championship golf course right on the coastline, offering spectacular views alongside an experience that’s ideal for beginners and pros alike. There’s also a covered short game practice area for making those all-important improvements to your golfing skills.
There’s also an amazing leisure club on site where you’ll find all kinds of things to do during your holiday in Scotland. A heated indoor pool and jacuzzi are perfect for relaxing while taking a quick dip, with a toddlers’ pool for little ones. Keep the kids busy with the amusements room, mini 10-pin bowling, and mountain bike skills area. And, after a busy (or not-so-busy) day you can unwind with a refreshing drink or delicious meal in the bar lounge, where there’s also live entertainment to enjoy in season.
You’ll find lots to do around the holiday park, including coarse fishing in the park’s ponds, mountain biking on the trails, pony trekking, nature walks, and even heading off on a boat from the all-tide slipway which provides direct access to Brighouse Bay itself – holidays in Scotland have never been so busy!
For added convenience there’s also a shop for those everyday essentials, as well as tourist information at reception. There are two kids’ playgrounds and plenty of natural green spaces to enjoy (with thriving animal life including swans, ducks, herons, rabbits and deer).
A range of accommodation options are on offer at Brighouse Bay Holiday Park, with lovely holiday lodges (including some with hot tubs, as well as some with sea views), cosy caravans situated in scenic natural areas of the park, and stylish glamping pods which sit alongside one of the peaceful fishing ponds. You can even rent a cottage, Old Mill Cottage, which can sleep up to eight people and is located in a tranquil space at the edge of the park. Pet-friendly properties are available.
If you’d prefer to bring along your own tent or touring caravan for an unforgettable holiday in Scotland, there are both hardstanding and grass pitches, including options for electricity, TV hook-ups, drinking water, and waste water disposal. There are two shower and toilet blocks on site which include laundry and dishwashing areas.
There’s no better destination for holidays in Scotland than this welcoming destination with its natural country park ambience.

There’s so much to do on-site but there’s also plenty to enjoy in the scenic surroundings.
Make the most of your break on the coast at the adjacent beach. Kids will love playing in the sand and exploring the rockpools, and why not take a dip in the sea or head out on the water from the park’s slipway?
There are endless walking and cycling trails across the local countryside whether you’re looking for a bracing hike or a relaxing stroll.

our girls love it, it's a relaxing site but with lots to do if you want it.The club house is fab, "Scally" is fantastic! and does a great kids disco! nearby kircudbright is wonderful for a visit with smoked haddock suppers to die for. A clean friendly site you'll want to visit again and again.

iam scout leader base in worksop nottinghamshire. we have just sent a fantastic week on your site with 34 scouts as part of our centenery celebrations. We cannot praise the site for
all their co-operation whilst we've been there from Management to shop staff. The service we have recived whilst we were there was fantastic and the scouts have already asked if we could go back sometime.

Stayed in 2berth static caravan which was superb, plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 kids. Park itself is very clean and lots to do. Beach near the site is lovely and clean. There is a clubhouse on site which supplies food and drinks and entertainment which is great, especially the food! The only complaint I have is the cleanliness of the tables in the restaurant they needed a good wipe as they were very sticky. The pool at the clubhouse again is filthy as were the changing rooms. They have a cheek to charge £5 for my husband and wee boy to swim in the filthy pool and charge 20p for a locker non returnable in the filthy changing room! There is a games room for the teenagers but the bowling was out of order and we were told its been like that for some time. I just feel the whole place needs a good clean! If this was rectified it would be a fab place to go.

What a disappointment. The site is in great need of a makeover. Toilet blocks were filthy even after being cleaned. Toilets and floor looked like they had never been cleaned in months with grime galore. Showers were a health hazard. We have been here many times before and could not believe how run down it has become. Went to club house for meal on arrival and this was very poor - have had a lot better.
Will not be back.

A superb site. I last visited 24 years ago with my parents. A return visit with my own young family in July 08 was a delightful experience. A very well maintained park in every respect with lots to do for the little ones. Great pool/club at top of site which is out of the way so as not to interrupt the peacefulness of the touring park. Very relaxing and picturesque. I will be back. My fussy wife says it has a fantastic golf course!

Great park with something for everyone.Visited on May Day holiday weekend and were impressed with the superb location:beach, views, woodland walks, together with lots of on site activities.
Facilities excellent - lots to do on site, and a nice big swimming pool. Bar/restaurant reasonable with entertainment. Showers/toilets etc good and clean. Kids play areas featured some inventive touches, and had a good open space for ball games.
It was evident that the owners were continually striving for excellence - they deserve their David Bellamy stars. For us well worth the journey!

My family and I have just returned from a week at Brighouse Bay and thoroughly enjoyed it. We found it had plenty of facilities to keep the children happy and was well kept, clean and had very friendly staff. I would recommend it to anyone.
