Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway
Sublime sea views, six fishing ponds, a private beach and around 1200 acres of also-sublime countryside walks on the doorstep are all here all year round, tucked on a secluded and peaceful peninsula with views over the Irish Sea.
Pretty much everything you could want is on site or very close by: if golf at the 18-hole Brighouse Bay Holiday Park championship course or free coarse fishing doesnâ€™t float your boat, wander over to the working livestock farm, along the coast, through acres of signposted hikes or launch a kayak from the bayâ€™s all-tide slipway or a boat onto the pond, or angle for sea fish from the rocks or just sit and drink in the views with a drink from the on-site lounge bar.
If the weather should be less than co-operative, stay undercover at the parkâ€™s Jacuzzi, steam room, fitness room, indoor pool or indoor games room with mini bowling. The well-stocked shop keeps guests sorted for essentials and the licensed bistro serves hot and cold meals and snacks.
Environmentally-friendly and award-winning Brighouse has been set up to have a country park feel and this extends to picking your pitch and setting up your tent, tourer or motorhome, wherever tickles your fancy: by the up-to-date clean facilities, beside the childrenâ€™s play area or tucked away in a quiet corner. The two amenitiesâ€™ blocks are centrally heated in winter and have separate ladies and gents sections in the larger block alongside ensuite cubicles for families.
Located next to beach, selection of activities, pony trekking, 18 hole golf course, slipway, nature trails and breathtaking views.
