Andy & Sandra from Cumbria (May 2021)

We recently stayed at Criffel View for 3 nights and can't recommend it highly enough. The site owners, Sandra and Colin, were friendly and very helpful when we encountered a problem with our caravan (of my own making).


The site is very well maintained and is quite possibly the prettiest we've stayed at over the years - Colin's collection of vintage tractors is fascinating. The shower and toilet block is quite superb - warm, spacious, modern and  exceptionally clean.


The site is well located near to the pretty village of New Abbey - a good base to explore the region. If you stay there you won't be disappointed
