Barnsoul park is surrounded by a working farm and stunning wooded parkland abounding in wildlife – fox, deer, over 100 different bird species and even the occasional otter. Set amongst woodlands and rolling farmland, Barnsoul is the perfect base to explore our beautiful region. Located just 6 miles from Dumfries and within easy driving distance from Annan, Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright.
Pitches for tents, motor homes or touring vans are available on a nightly, weekly or seasonal basis. Our comfortable facilities offer: hot water, electric hookups, a shower block with individual cubicles, communal kitchen, picnic area, play park, dog exercise area, laundry facilities, chemical toilet disposal, bike storage, pitch and put, an on-site warden and even free fishing. Don’t want the hassle of putting up a tent? Introducing the crash pad, Bothie, apex pods and little lodges. All Glamping pitches (excluding the crash pad) include foam mattresses, lights, heater, fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave and your very own fire pit which allows you to cosy up at your very own campfire. The Little Lodge is a newly designed camping pod with more windows, increased headroom and a separate bunk area for the kids. Please visit our website for further details.
Large Pitch RestrictionsOur tent field sits in an elevated position looking onto the mill pond with the "Big Wood" at the back and there are a number of "hook-up" points if required. Both our touring field and tent pitches are easy to get to and near to our amenity block.
Shower DetailsWe have also upgraded our amenity building and our showers are all free with plenty of hot water. We have an upgraded on-site kitchen which has state of the art hobs, microwaves and kettles which can be used by all our visitors. When the weather allows visitors are welcome to use our picnic area at the side of the kitchen to enjoy their meals or even just get together and chat.
Electric Hook-upsOur touring field is the first area you come to when you enter the park nestled between Pete's Wood and Crow Wood with farmland spreading out as far as the eye can see and we have been working on our touring pitches this year giving each pitch more space to easily accommodate an awning. Our field is set out in a circle with a large free area in the middle. We have 8 hard standing pitches for larger/heavier vans. Each pitch is served with electricity if required.
