There are few holiday parks that can boast such spectacular surroundings and yet be so conveniently located. Queensberry Bay is a coastal retreat making the most of its countryside surroundings. Close by you will find quaint towns, an abundance of historical attractions and an array of beautiful border routes to explore. Not to mention Galloway Forest Park which was the UK’s first Dark Skies park, perfect for stargazing!

The historical town of Annan is nearby and Gretna, Dumfries and Carlisle offer plenty of options for great days out. 

In contrast, the region’s rocky shoreline offers a variety of beaches overlooking the Irish sea. Choose from sandy beaches perfect for relaxing, to shingled beaches perfect for rock pooling and adventure!

Entertainment and events
