We have chosen our ‘Park of the month’ for March 2015 to be Auchenlarie Holiday Park located in the beautiful Dumfries and Galloway, buried in the heart of South-West Scotland. Surrounded by mountains, beaches and local towns you’re never short of ideas for a fun-filled day out.
Attractions such as the Gem rock museum, scenic walks, David Coulthard Museum and the town of Kirkcudbright (Dubbed ‘The Artist’s Town’) are all in short driving distance from the park and offer fun for all the family.
Auchenlarie Holiday Park boasts the fantastic 2014 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, regarding their average review rating of 4 ½ stars out of 5. Furthermore, it’s rated as a 5* park by the Scottish tourist board. As you can see from our photos (below) Auchenlarie takes pride in the park’s appearance and is well known for their customer service.
As for facilities within the park, Auchenlarie Holiday Park keeps up their continually high standards starting with the impeccable Bistro Auchenlarie. The Bistro offers a full range of exquisite food (Menu is viewable on Auchenlarie Website) from their Breakfast, Lunchtime and Evening menus. For sports fans, there is also a sports bar which shows top Football and Rugby games free of charge using their Sky Sports Package. These games can be watched on two 50” plasma screen TV’s, with a pool table to keep you entertained during the half-time break. Furthermore, there are spectacular live shows that take place regularly in the ‘Starlight Suite’ providing more than enough entertainment for a family of all ages.
For the children who are bored of ‘adult time’, there are plenty of activities to keep them entertained. With Auchenlarie Holiday Park’s children’s activity programme that includes football sessions, circus skills and karaoke there is fun for the whole family at any time of day.
New for 2015 is Auchenlarie’s Ark and Crafts studio. Children (and adults) can take part in pet handling sessions, meet Puff the Bearded Dragon, Dennis the Milk Snake and many more of their friends. There is even the possibility of creating your own souvenir of Auchenlarie by designing a ceramic mug, T-shirt, key ring and many more options.
