Fabulous Park, fabulous facilities, fabulous location!
Two award winning Parks!


We are working on a new, fresh webpage - please be patient, working as hard as we can to provide you with all the information you need!

Set in Dumfries and Galloway, the award winning Auchenlarie and Anwoth Holiday Parks (from VisitScotland, 5* and 4* respectively; with The AA awarding Auchenlarie a 5 Pennant award with an excellent 90% Gold Standard rating!) are privately owned by the Swalwell family.  Our parklands and superb facilities offer our guests a fantastic alternative to the stresses of every day life.  Auchenlarie, with its dramatic views overlooking Wigtown Bay, picture postcard scenes and miles of peaceful unspoilt landscape, to inspire and invigorate.  Combined with our sister Park, Anwoth Holiday Park which is set in the charming town of Gatehouse of Fleet, we offer quality and service that has placed us apart from the rest.  

We are committed to a continuous programme of development at Auchenlarie and Anwoth and are justifiably proud of our Leisure Suite, featuring a heated indoor swimming pool with children’s area, mums and dads can swim in the large pool whilst the children enjoy splashing about in their own area. And, if you have caught the fitness bug, try our fully equipped gym.  Not enought sun in glorious South West Scotland?... then top up your tan in the solarium.

The whole of Auchenlarie has been carefully and extensively developed to the highest standards enabling you to enjoy a fabulous choice of licensed bars; on site shopping in our Premier Convenience Store which has fresh produce, delivered daily; a choice of snacks or restaurant meals in our Surfside Bistro Restaurant.  If you prefer to dine in the comfort of your holiday home we have our Surfside Bistro Takeaway - try their famous pizzas! (You can order online too - visit www.thesurfside.co.uk to place your order) The Starlight Suite plays host to our resident entertainers and cabaret.  

Our sister Park, Anwoth is carefully maintained to ensure its guests relax and enjoy their leisure time.  But guests can come along to Auchenlarie and enjoy all the facilities we have.

So much to enjoy!  Your complete holiday enjoyment from two stunning parks!

The Park

Auchenlarie is so much more than just a Holiday Park… We are proud of our achievements in the leisure industry, and we welcome guests from near and far.

If you live in Dumfries and Galloway you already appreciate the beauty of our environment, but perhaps you are unaware of what Auchenlarie can offer you even when you’re not on holiday. We are sure that you will find something of interest within our website…

Lodges, Cottages, Farmhouse, Static Holiday Homes and cool Pods For Hire

Our guests generally want a break away from home, away from day to day life - but not necessarily away from home comforts.  That's why we offer a range of accommodation options to ensure every guest has the perfect stay, designed to suit their specific needs and expectations.

All our holiday homes for hire are maintained to the same high standard.  We have five main grades of static holiday homes to choose from: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Luxury (with hot tubs) and Lodges - together with the innovative S-Pod, a self-contained, flexible and versatile pod that is packed with all the features you need for a comfortable stay away.  And for the special pet in your life, we have a Gold 2 bedroom and a Silver 3 bedroom holiday home which are pet friendly - so, come on, bring that important member of the family along with you!

Our Courtyard development has 5 superbly renovated stone cottages together with a traditional and spacious farmhouse that has 5 bedrooms.  Our Courtyard development is situated across the A75 from the main Park.  Please be careful when crossing this road.

We also have some budget, no-frills holiday home accommodation (in our Standard 2 bedroom caravans) from £69 for a short break to £99 for a week stay.  We do not provide bed linen or towels.  Bed linen and towels can be hired for this type of accommodation.

Linen is included in all other grades of holiday hire (but does not include towels/tea towels or cot bedding). Cots, high chairs, patio chairs, extra heaters, extra linen/bedding and bath towels are all available to hire by arrangement. All holiday homes have heating and most are centrally heated and double glazed – ideal for early and late season visits.
Our Bronze grade holiday homes are pet friendly, with selected Gold and Silver holiday homes (see above) pet friendly too. You can book online visit www.swalwellholidaygroup.co.uk - you can book your Entertainment & Leisure Pass online too!

We now have high speed multi connection direct to van (DTV) Wi-Fi to all our holiday homes for hire provided by a 3rd party company (LPIS).  It offers reliable internet access as well as streaming data hungry programmes such as Smart TV, Netflix and iPlayer.
