As well as being a five star holiday park Auchenlarie has recently won awards in two categories from Hoseasons.

The first award was for being in partnership with Hoseasons for 20 years – the second, and really prestigious award was the ‘Relax & Explore Lodges & Parks in Britain: Small Parks Category’.

Auchenlarie were presented with the 2016 Diamond Award for ‘Exceptional Quality and Outstanding Customer Services’ for its Galloway Cottages. This is a new award so they are the first recipients.

Owner, Marshall Swalwell, said: “Since purchasing Auchenlarie Holiday Park in 1986 we have steadily grown the Park to become one of the largest family run businesses in Dumfries and Galloway.

“At the height of each season we employ 72 staff from the local area, sourcing a vast number of our purchases from local suppliers too. We have grown to our current size (licensed for 487 units) from the 136 static caravans which were here when we came.

“One of our regular Partners, who have seen, and helped with our growth, is Hoseasons whom we began using in 1997. We provide the local shops, restaurants and visitor centres with a huge amount of their holiday trade.

“During our busiest period we have over 1500 visitors to the Park.”
