Caravan and Camping

We love camping and had our best memories in mind when we set up Solway View Campsite. Our ideas included having a beautiful, accessible relaxed camping site with great facilities and hot showers.

We also think camping is so much more fun with a campfire and a lovely view. We have made every effort to work with our location and minimise any impact on the environment. The whole site runs from wind power thanks to ‘Tina the Turner’ our 15kw wind turbine. The top shower block is also aided by solar power. We actively reuse and recycle, and encourage all our guests to do the same.

Please note, we have created a family friendly site at Solway View and we don’t expect party people to stay.

Solway View is a site where you can enjoy the great outdoors and there are great walks around the farm, adjoining woodland and local area.

You can have a grass and/or a hard-standing pitch. Some pitches have an added bonus of a sea view. Every pitch is spacious, has a picnic bench and firepit. We also have pitches with electric hook-up (EHU) and you park at your pitch.

We have set out three areas: hardstanding pitches at the top of the site, year-round camping field and the summer camping field. There are a few hard-standing pitches within the two camping fields for smaller caravans/campervan that like to be beside the tents.

Pets are welcome and as Solway View is on a working farm, all dogs must be kept under control at all times. We have a dog Playarea at the campsite where they can be off lead. Max 2 pets per pitch.

If booking separately, please put a note on your booking to highlight your group connection and this will help to ensure we have you together.

How do I make sure I am pitched with my friends or family?

Our pitches are allocated and if you book under one booking you will be automatically pitched next to each other. If you book separately please put a note on your booking with the group connection to enable us to keep you together. 

Do you have hardstanding pitches?

Yes, all touring pitches have both a hard standing area together with a grass area.

Can I pitch my tourer next to my friend with a tent?

Definitely! We have a few reinforced grass pitches in the camping fields suitable for smaller touring units and these pitches would allow you to be pitched beside your friend in their tent. Alternatively, there is a grass area on hard standing touring pitches. If the tent is not too large, they can have a pitch beside you in the touring area.

Can I bring my dog?

Dogs are welcome (large dogs that are classified under the Dangerous Dogs Act are not permitted). Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times except in the dog play area. They must not be left unattended, even in the dog play area. Please clean up immediately after your dog.

Do you have electric hook up?

Yes, we have electric hook up pitches with a 16amp supply. Please bring your own 15 metre cable with built in safety device RCD and an IP rating of 44 or greater.

Do you have a motorhome service point?

Yes. We have two Elsan Disposal points and drive over Grey Water disposal.

Can I hire a fire pit from you?

No need, every pitch has its own fire pit supplied for you to enjoy during your stay. We sell the firewood at Reception and have marshmallows too!

Can I bring my own BBQ?

You can bring your own bbq as long as it is raised off the ground and does not burn the grass. Disposable bbq’s should be on a stand. We also provide a fire pit at each pitch and it can be used to bbq.

Can I bring my own firewood?

No. We sell sustainably sourced kiln dried firewood that is great value and has an extremely low spark risk and ask that you only use this wood on site.

Check in for camping and caravan pitches is from 12pm-8pm. Check out is by 11am.

Will I be allocated a pitch?
