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, 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.

A gem of a site

After 8 great nights on pitch 2, I thought I should write and say what a wonderful little CL they have created here on the outskirts of Maybole. Grandchildren loved the little play area behind the pitches and we all enjoyed seeing the ducks and hens wandering round in the evening. Everything is to hand, recycling bins, fresh and waste water, Chemical disposal point. Three hardstanding pitches where it is easy to peg out an awning as well as two grass pitches. It was everything we wanted and more and we will certainly return, hopefully for longer.

Excellent site, immaculately kept

Stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of August after a recommendation from another traveller. Site is easy to find, with wide, flat, hard standing or grass pitches. There is a toilet and shower and water points in the corner. It was extremely well kept with short grass, a picnic table, even a small play area for the kids, along with a tame sheep. Site is a credit to the owners and very good value for money. It’s in a good location with views of the surrounding countryside. There is only one thing that could improve this site and that’s a pot wash facility. Owners wee very welcoming.

Great for winter stays

A really nice neat and tidy site, with hard standings which were perfect for our winter stay in February 2019. Good open views and space for the dog to wander. Decent sized pitches. The only issue we had was that it was quite windy and we did have to do quite a bit of re-pegging of the awning. Nearby Maybole is within walking distance and has all the basic amenities, Co-op, Spar, Petrol Station and even an independent butcher's, baker's and deli. The Maybole Arms serves basic , good value pub grub and is dog friendly. Although cash only. This site is close to the coast so is a good base. Culzean Castle is a great place to visit locally, as are all the local beaches. This would also be a good stop off site if you are travelling furher up the coast.
