Why stay here ...

Orchard House Ayrshire is set in a scenic location on the route of the River Ayr walk, with excellent local beaches such as Ayr, Prestwick and Troon. There are many attractions within easy reach such as Ayr Racecourse, Culzean Castle and Country Park and also the famous Burns Heritage trail and centre. The site is quiet with outstanding views towards Arran and the Ayrshire coast. With no less than 40 golf courses in the area, golf enthusiasts are spoilt for choice.

Whilst you're here why not say hello to our miniature Shetland ponies Crunchie, Holly, Angel, Fudge and Uncle Fergus. Have a walk round, or just take a seat in our heritage apple orchard with 12 varieties and over 50 trees.

Each of our 5 hardstanding pitches has its own water, power and grey water drainage. We also have WiFi at the site and this is all inclusive within our price, no further charges, with a 15% discount for stays of 7 nights or over!

We allow up to 2 dogs per outfit, but they must be on leads and under control at all times. We have animals and our neighbours are sheep farmers so please ensure your dogs are well behaved around other animals.

From the end of September until mid-November you can join us to visit our Heritage Apple Orchard, pick some organic apples, press them into juice and enjoy the fruits of your labour! We press apple juice every weekend and during the October holiday here in Scotland. There are two sessions each day, one in the morning, one in the afternoon. Up to 8 people can attend each session, so you may be with another group on the day. The juice is bottled and pasteurized so that you can take it home with you. Take a look at some of the pictures on our Facebook page. Prices for the experience will be posted nearer to picking time in September.

First Guest review.

5 Miles from the Main A77 roundabout at Ayr Whitletts the drive there was easy, good roads & a wide access from the B730. When we arrived Ian led us to the Pitches, being the First Club members to use the site we had a choice, so we chose "Arran" (all the Pitches have great views). All the Pitches are flat but not level this is on Ian's todo list... After setting the Motorhome up and putting the Kettle on for a Cuppa, Cate arrived to say Hello, we had a good old chat about the site and they wanted to know what improvements & facilities Motorhomers & Caravaners would like, they are really receptive to feedback. After that I suggested that if they wanted to they could pop up for a celebratory Glass of Champers which turned out to be a real hoot as another couple arrived later on & turns out we all had so much in common... The Facilities are all NEW.. Loved the Horse box conversion, great Idea.. Lots of Little walks for kids round the Orchard.. I really liked the fact that the sites Views over Ayr also lie in line with the Flight path for Arrivals & Departures to Prestwick Airport, being a Plane geek this was Brill, 2 x C17 Globemasters & 2 C130J Hercules aircraft (1 doing Stop-n-Goes). Also worthy of note is the wildlife, several Raptors, Gold finches flying about, Deer & Badgers reported to be visitors to the site. There is a Gardening Nursery within walking distance which has a large selection of plants. If you don't fancy cooking in the morning there is a Hot filled Roll menu, orders need to be in by 8PM though! I can honestly say "I will be back !!!" Also going to book a pitch for the Orchards Apple picking & Juicing session... Congratulations & Thank you to Ian & Cate for a Great Site, looking forward to coming again.

Orchard House Ayrshire

A hidden gem right in the middle of the beautiful Ayrshire Countryside with views over the sea to Arran .Easy access with spacious pitches overlooking the stunning views . Electric hook up and water tap on each pitch . Quirky shower and toilet facilities in a specially refurbished “horse box”!! Lovely peaceful setting .Glass of wine ,a good book and a seat in the Orchard after a hard working week is the perfect relaxation . Once the sun goes down relax and chill with friends around the fire pit . No need to cook breakfast Danny’s Diner will make a breakfast roll and at your preferred time slot deliver to your pitch. Over breakfast you can plan nearby places to visit . Ayr , Alloway ,Burns Cottage etc Great weekend here . Will definitely be making a return trip .
