muddy wellies weekend of frugal fun for all the family


What better type of break than an affordable, frugal break? Here at Frugaldom, in the rural southwest Scottish countryside, we are always thinking up new ideas for fun and affordable activities that can be enjoyed by all the family and what better way to celebrate the changing seasons than by having a muddy wellies weekend?

Short breaks (or longer, if you want) are offered at our privately owned, 2-bedroom static caravan, which is located at Three Lochs Holiday Park near Newton Stewart in Dumfries & Galloway. (If you'd like to look up the location, the post code is DG8 0EP) It's only 1km from the Frugaldom project and surrounded by lochs, rivers, fields and forests.

The caravan has a large double bedroom with en suite, a spacious twin room, separate shower room, open plan kitchen, living room and dining area. We include board games and DVDs, but wellies, winter woollies and waterproofs are best for muddy walks around the lochs, through the forest and around Frugaldom.

This is a great place for stargazing, bird spotting and wildlife watching. Explore the area, spot the ecoarts animals and visit Frugaldom, where you can explore the muddy paths, visit the den, plant willows around the muddy pond, meet the ponies and feed the hens.

The caravan has its own bird feeding station right outside, so you can watch for the woodpeckers, nuthatches, jays and numerous other small birds, plus the resident tawny owls often land here at night. It's a haven for wildlife. (Watch out for the brown & white rabbit!)
