Why stay here ...

A warm welcome awaits you on our family run tranquil site set within a traditional, stone-built small holding on the edge of the market town of Maybole, Ayrshire.

The site is open all year. We offer a choice of hard standing or well-drained level grass pitches (grass pitches are for stays of no longer than 7 days), surrounded by a patchwork of rolling green countryside attracting wildlife such as deer, grey heron and barn owls. Many previous guests have remarked on the immaculate condition of the site. All pitches have electric hook-up (16 amp) with access to a new toilet block with shower, toilet and wash basin. Adults and children are welcome as are well behaved dogs.

The local shop is found less than a mile into Maybole. Other amenities include a supermarket, cafes, pubs and restaurants which are found within the High Street running from the imposing town hall, built in 1887, to the equally impressive Maybole Castle.

Sporting opportunities include a swimming pool, a 9-hole golf course with splendid views across the Carrick Hills and scenic golf courses in Turnberry (8 miles) and Royal Troon (17miles). Fishing enthusiasts can enjoy the well-stocked trout pool in Loch Mochrum (3 miles). Culzean castle and country park (5.5 miles) is a National Trust property set in acres of woodland, including five kilometres of coastline, caves, rock pools and sand and shingle beaches. The castle is a remarkable vision of turrets and battlements and well worth a visit.

The local train and bus station (1 mile) offer easy access to other places of interest. The closest town to Maybole is Ayr (9 miles) with sandy beaches, excellent shopping facilities, theatres and restaurants. The village of Alloway(8 miles), the birth place of Robert Burns is a must for fans of the Scottish Bard. Further afield sits the vibrant city of Glasgow (40 miles) with its many museums and interesting architecture. There are many picturesque villages to be found in the area such as Straiton (6 miles), the beautiful little village of stone cottages where you can enjoy many fine walks and the idyllic harbour village of Dunure (7.5miles) with stunning views across the ruins of Dunure castle and out to the Ailsa Craig in the Clyde.

For an introduction to the world of Scotch whiskey visit the whiskey experience in the village of Kirkoswald (5 miles). In the summer months a boat excursion aboard the Waverly Paddle Steamer, the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world, allows you to explore the Lochs and Islands of the West coast of Scotland including the Isle of Arran otherwise known as “Scotland in Miniature”. Or head south towards Stranraer to board the Stenaline ferry to enjoy a day trip to Northern Ireland.

Whatever you decide to do during your visit we look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful part of South West Scotland and wish you a pleasant and memorable stay.

Spick and span!

Auchenwynd
An excellent site with everything really neat and tidy. Little details like a hose tail on the fresh water tap much appreciated. We were slightly worried that proximity to a road would be a problem but traffic was light and we were never disturbed. Well situated for Culzean and Robbie Burns museum. Dumfries House not too far away. A very good site.

As good as ever

Auchenwynd
Arrived 12th August 2021 for another 10 night stay at this wonderful CL. Site is immaculate with manicured lawns and hedges and a spotlessly clean small toilet/shower block which was freshly painted (we couldn't use it last year due to Covid restrictions so it was good to have that option this time). Hard standings are nice and level and the views across the fields make you want to stay on site and admire them all the time! Water points and chemical disposal very close and easily accessible at the front of the site. The geese and hens still roam freely around the site in the evening and the little play area is a welcome attraction for the grandchildren. Having the grass area to play on when it is not occupied was a bonus for them also. Be aware that there is no wifi - whether that is a positive or negative depends on your internet access needs but we have never found it a problem as the mobile phone signal is fine. The site is a credit to the owners and they deserve every success with it. We will be back.

Well Presented Site

Auchenwynd
An extremely well-tended and obviously cared-for site. The shower/w.c. facilities were being enhanced but no surprise as we were advised in advance by the owner. The immaculate pitches and boundary hedges together with freshly painted (or at least appeared to be) facilities demonstrate the care and pride that the owners must put into this site. Would not hesitate to stay at this lovely peaceful site again and would recommend it to others.

TRANQUIL AND PRISTINE SITE

Auchenwynd
We were delighted to arrive at this tranquil and pristine site. We were welcomed by Mr. Watson junior and then by his father. The attention given to detail and cleanliness by Mr,. and Mrs. Watson is outstanding. We had a peaceful stay and highly recommend this CL site.

Perfect Little CL!

Auchenwynd
We spent a long weekend at Auchenwynd CL in mid-May. This was our first visit and in my opinion this is probably the best CL we have ever visited in many years of motorhoming. The owners Gavin and Sally are very friendly and have thought everything out very well on site, it is immaculate. The waste disposal, grey water and fresh water area is perfection! The site has two friendly resident chickens and the largest sheep we have ever seen, our little granddaughter really enjoyed the animals. There is a Co-Op in Maybole town, which is around a 20 minute walk and ideal for milk, bread and the usual necessities.
