Welcome to North Rhinns Camping our peaceful small rural camping site.
Coronovirus – We are closed at the request of the Scottish Government until the”lockdown rules are relaxed.
We have “paused” taking bookings until 1st July. If the lockdown is relaxed before this we may open earlier. You can phone or email us to enquire about existing bookings, postponing your visit, or making new bookings for later this year or even 2021.
SOCIAL DISTANCING MEASURES
On arrival we ask campers to phone to say they are here, or just one person to come up to the cottage for enquiries. We will show them their pitch.
Social distancing is practical at all our tent pitches. We are going to limit the total number of people on the site and reduce the number of pitches available.
We are roping off the narrow path leading around the western field side of the campsite, in order to prevent people crossing the 5 tent pitches that may have tents pitched.
There remains 2 other wider paths to the top of the field around the woodland that can be used.
The double doors of the facilities block will be kept open at all times, enabling campers to see if there is anyone using the toilets, or shower or washing up sinks. We will ask campers to wait by a marker outside the building if they are in use. There will be markers on the floor showing distancing. We will ask campers to leave the cubicle doors open when they leave so others can see if they are vacant.
The facilities will be deep cleaned daily and the building will be closed during this. Handwashing bowls with soap will be placed by the cold water taps on the field, as well as the washbasins in the facilities building. We will not be putting out towels in the facilities in order to prevent cross infection. Campers can hire towels for their stay, if needed.
Payments can be made on site by contactless debit card, or cash, or bank transfer.
This campsite is for TENTS and CAMPERVANS ONLY.
There are 7 different sized pitches for tents.
A separate area has hard standings for 3 CAMPERVANS with grass beside,
or if no campervans in, a small tent beside a car.
Seven electric hookups.
Campfire hearths at most pitches
Modern facilities block with toilets, shower, washing up sinks , electric sockets, and small fridgefreezer.
Drinking water at all taps. (No need for bottled water)
There is one comfortable camping pod that sleeps 2 in comfort, (3 at a squeeze)
All tent pitches are separated by trees or changes in ground level. Some have open views across fields, others are within our tree belt which gives shelter from the wind. Most have some privacy., we do not cram tents in together. (except groups).
We are 6 miles north west of Stranraer, and 2 miles from Leswalt village, with its local store. After many years of camping ourselves, we have made our camping site into the type of place we would like to stay.
Cars are parked in 2 parking areas, leaving grass pitches car-free and safe. A wheelbarrow is available to carry your gear to your tent pitch
Lone campers, couples, groups, families, single sex groups are all welcome. Limited capacity for extra large family tents, (3 only). Most pitches have a bench seat or picnic table. There is a small shelter for wet weather cooking.
Since we are a small camping site and do not accept caravans or large motorhomes, we do NOT provide disposal for chemical toilets.
DOGS are welcome with considerate owners. Must be on lead on our field. Aggessive dogs not welcome. If your dog attacks/bites anyone, it and its companion will be told to leave.

We developed this unusual campsite ourselves and are proud of it. However we are now looking to sell the cottage, land and campsite as a going concern, so we can retire. See AB&A Matthews website or zoopla or contact us directly if you would be interested.
