Moffat Manor Country Park is located in an idyllic woodland setting in Moffat, a conservation area within the southern upland hills of Dumfries and Galloway in Scotland. This area benefits from the warmth of the Gulf Stream, so the climate is usually warmer than some other parts of Scotland.
There are new and pre-owned static caravan holiday homes for sale here as well as touring pitches for caravans, motorhomes and tents. The Pine Tavern on site offers you hearty meals and – of course – local whisky! This pub and restaurant on site has been refurbished for the 2014 holiday season, by the new management team that was appointed in 2013. Behind the scenes, the kitchen has also been improved.
The shower and toilet block has also been refurbished for 2014 and now has the luxury of new showers and central heating.
Disabled guests are very welcome to visit Moffat Manor Country Park and the toilet block facilities allow easy access for disabled guests and their families.
There's a Holiday Home Show Area, where you can go to see whether you're tempted to buy a new static caravan or lodge and have it sited at Moffat Manor Country Park, or take a look at pre-owned holiday homes that are for sale at the time of your visit.
This beautiful caravan holiday park has 56 Acres of rural parkland including a 6.5 acre loch, which has been stocked with both brown and rainbow trout. So if you enjoy a spot of fishing during your camping, motorhome and caravan holidays in Scotland, this could be the campsite for you!
Take a stroll through the beautiful parkland and all around the loch on the new circular pathway around the water.
Not only is Moffat Manor Country Park an ideal venue for fishing holidays in Scotland, it's also well situated for exploring Dumfries and Galloway. This is one of the easiest parts of Scotland to reach if you live in England. It's well worth exploring this area right from the Solway Coast to the South Ayrshire Hills.
If you enjoy walking, pick a stretch of the Solway Coast Heritage Trail, a lovely 190-mile coast path which passes close to historic castles and ruins, museums, beaches, quaint towns and seaside villages such as Kippford and Rockcliffe.
Moffat itself is a pretty town with an interesting history. Pop into the Moffat Museum to discover all about this lovely town's colourful past. It's now a creative hub, where you'll find a lively music scene and lots of events going on during the year. There's an annual Moffat Gala and also the Moffat Sheep Races.
If you enjoy golfing holidays, why not make Moffat Manor Country Park your long-term holiday home base and get to know Moffat Golf Club (http://www.moffatgolfclub.co.uk/), which has breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. It's a moorland course, near the Scottish border, and visitors and new members are welcome. There's a good bar selling drinks, sandwiches, hot rolls, snacks and full meals in The Mottat Golf Club's clubhouse. Equipment hire is available as well, so you could decide on the spur of the moment to go golfing while you're on holiday at Moffat Manor Country Park!
From here you could also take day trips to Scotland's great cities. Both Glasgow and Edinburgh are 50 miles away, so you could get to one or the other and back in a day.
Dumfries and Galloway is known as Scotlands best kept secret with over 200 miles of coastline, wild mountains and moorlands, pretty towns, charming villages and a great network of touring roads gives holiday makers all the scope and choice for an exhilarating activity holiday or a refreshing short break.
The landscape of Dumfries and Galloway inspires awe. A pallette of contrast of outstanding unspoilt nutural beauty and colour all year round makes the area a distracting backdrop when trying to concentrate on any activity.
Dumfries and Galloway is one of the easiest parts of Scotland to reach, being just over the border from England, a three hour drive from Manchester or Leeds, one and a half hours from Newcastle, one hour twenty minutes from Edinburgh and a one hours drive from Glasgow. The quiet country roads of Dumfries and Galloway make driving a pleasure. Furthermore, there are 20 ferry crossings a day from Larne or Belfast to Stranraer and Cairnryan.

Was a nice little park. cosy welcoming pub and lovely but small resturaunt.
was in the middle of a wet weekend but it didnt dampen the stay even though parts of the paths were strewn with puddles.
There was some building work in progress which didnt run at the weekend. Lots of investment planned by the looks of things.
only thing spoiling the stay wasa rowdy crowd nexy to us. but they were told off a few times by the warden.
