If you’re looking for the perfect family getaway this spring and summer that is budget-friendly yet packed with fun, camping can be a great option. Not only is it a way to enjoy the great outdoors, but it tends to be one of the most reasonably priced holidays you can find. And finding the perfect place to camp is easy thanks to the amenities that Coastal Kippford offers. You may have just found the best spot to pitch your tent this spring and summer.
Here’s a look at why camping at Coastal Kippford is such a fabulous holiday idea, the benefits of camping in general and the pricing structure for 2023 so you know what to expect.
Why Camp at Coastal Kippford?
Generally speaking, camping is one of the best ways to get in touch with nature and explore the countryside. Staying in a hotel or bed and breakfast just doesn’t offer the same type of opportunity, as you are essentially removed from nature.
Camping is one of those activities that can also be enjoyed by all ages. It can be a romantic mini break for a couple who is looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and unwind, or a chance for kids to be free to explore and get some much-needed fresh air and exercise. If you want to make great family memories, camping can be the answer. Teach the kids the joy of camping at a young age and you can bet it will be a tradition they one day carry on with their children. A lovely legacy to create.
But why choose Coastal Kippford over other campsites? One of the biggest reasons people are drawn to Coastal Kippford is the location. It is located by the lovely seaside village of Kippford on the Solway Firth, often referred to as Scotland’s Riviera Coast. This means you’re getting the best of Scotland and the sea all in one go. Not only that but there are tons of activities nearby to keep everyone busy and entertained.
What to Do In and Around Kippford – There’s No Way You Can Be Bored
And speaking of activities, you may be wondering what there is to do in and around Kippford. The good news is that there is no possible way you or anyone in your party can be bored. It comes down to how active you want to be, what you consider a holiday and what interests you most.
- Paddle boarding
If these activities sound a bit too fast-paced and active for you, then you can opt to visit one of the quaint restaurants or shops and spend your day in a more leisurely manner. The sightseeing alone is worth appreciating and should be on your must-see list, especially if this is your first time visiting Kippford and the surrounding areas within Dumfries and Galloway. And don’t forget Kippford beach is perfect for relaxing.
Kippford itself is a very narrow village that is right on the shore of the estuary of the River Urr. This is why it’s described as a seaside village. The village of Rockcliffe can also be found nearby thanks to the Jubilee footpath.
Feeling Adventurous – Travel Outside Kippford
So what if you’re feeling adventurous and want to take a half-day or full-day trip and explore nearby attractions, sights, towns and villages? The good news is there is plenty to explore such as Rounall Wood, Dalbeattie Forest, Castle Point Beach, Sandyhills Beach, Drumcoltran Tower, The Old Mill Palnackie, Greenhill Fishery and Bainloch Deer Park.
High Season or Low Season – The Park is Always Open
As we head into what will be the high season in the park, it’s worth noting that the park is open year-round. This means you can enjoy a getaway at any time that suits you. There is also staff onsite 24/7 to answer any questions you may have and offer assistance if needed.
Travelling with the Family Pet – Not a Problem
So what if you want to take your four-legged family member on a camping holiday with you? Not a problem as Coastal Kippford is a pet friendly park. This can be difficult to find and could result in you having to board or kennel your dog during your holiday. It’s an added expense and for many, it’s added stress as you want to be sure they are safe and well-cared for while you’re away.
What You Can Expect to Spend Camping
A big reason that people choose to camp is the cost. Let’s face it, inflation is hitting everyone hard and with the prices of everything going up, it can be harder and harder to set aside a holiday budget. That’s why it’s such a bonus when you can find a budget-friendly holiday.
Coastal Kippford has three grass pitches for camping, and here’s the best part, each one has an electric hook-up. That means that even though you’re camping, you don’t have to rough it. Tent pitches are conveniently located so you don’t have far to go for the dishwashing, shower and toilet facilities, again putting comfort and convenience first. And the facilities are all open 24 hours so they work around your schedule.
Pricing for tent pitches in 2023 is £28 per night in the low season and £33 per night in the high season. Whether it’s a weekend or a full week you want to camp, you’ll be able to stay within your budget.
As for what size of the tent the pitches can accommodate, the maximum size is 7m x 5m which equates to a fairly large tent, big enough for a family if need be.
