The family owned multi award winning ‘Auchenlarie Holiday Park’, near Gatehouse of Fleet in Dumfries and Galloway has just re-opened for the 2017 season with a newly refurbished  ‘Surfside Bistro Restaurant’ plus lots more to offer for all the family including a new soft play area.  The facilities are available to anyone, you don’t have to book a holiday there. 

Treat yourselves to a fabulous meal in our new Smuggler’s Tryst – yes, we have built a boat in our Restaurant – and we promise you won’t get seasick.

Site owner Paul Swalwell  told DWGO “ We have also been busy during the winter creating a fantastic new ‘soft play’ area. 

It is housed in the Zone and has 3 levels!!  It has a toddler’s area for under 4’s and a soft play for under 10’s …. And we are offering a Season Pass for just £25 (per child) which means you can use it whenever you like.  Alternatively, the charge is £2 per child per session.”

He went on to say “Whilst your children are enjoying their soft play session, why not treat yourself to coffee and cake – available daily in The Zone.

Our indoor, heated swimming pool is free to use and you can take the opportunity to visit the Gym and Solarium too.

Our facilities are available to anyone, you don’t have to book a holiday here (but we would love to see you all).  So, come along and see what we have for you.”
