Why stay here ...

Landis Farm Caravan and Motorhome site is located just outside the pretty village of New Abbey in Dumfries and Galloway. New Abbey is famous for the ruins of Sweetheart Abbey which is in the centre of the village. The village is located on the South West Coastal 300 Route making it a perfect stop off if you are travelling around the area.

All pitches have electric hook up and are hardstanding. There is a toilet and shower facility fully set up for wheelchair and disabled access with a wet room facility and the other side of the block has a shower, hand basin and wc. There is free Wi-Fi available on site. We are a small, friendly site based on a working farm which has been in our family for over ninety years. We are lucky to be situated in the unspoilt countryside of Dumfries and Galloway. The quiet surroundings offer peace and tranquility but we are ideally located for a host of activities in the region. We are dog friendly.

Around The Site

You don't need to use your car if you fancy a walk or some history or a cup of tea and a cake. Footpaths from the farm will take you to the Nith estuary, Waterloo Monument and Criffel hill. We are only a ten minute walk from the beautiful village of New Abbey featuring the historic Sweetheart Abbey and a Cornmill which is open to the public. There is a small shop, village pub and award winning tea room and gift shop in the village. You are also welcome to view our collection of vintage tractors and meet some of the farm residents including goats, chickens and cattle.

Further Afield

Dumfries and Galloway is a magnet for walkers, cyclists, fishermen and golfers. The town of Dumfries is also well known for it's connection with Robert Burns and there are a number of interesting places to visit. Some local attractions we'd suggest are:

Mabie Farm Park - Only ten minutes drive from the site, is a great day out for families.
Kirkconnel Flow - This nature reserve is only 3 miles from the site.
Caerlaverock and Mersehead - Both of these areas are a must for bird watchers.

Driving along the coast road will take you to a range of secluded bays including Sandyhills, Rockcliffe and the marina village of Kipford. The town of Dalbeattie is a little further on and past there you will find the Food Town Castle Douglas and the Artist Town Kirkcudbright.

Amazing CL

Landis Farm
Landis Farm is simply an amazing CL, I cannot find anything to fault it. Mr and Mrs Carruthers are very welcoming and keep the site immaculate. Pitches are well spread out, some with awesome views, and dotted with interesting vintage farm machinery, which fascinated our children, dotted around. There are lots of bird feeders and flowers to encourage nature. The goats and friendly farm cats were a big hit with our children too. The CL has its own toilet which is spacious, spotless and has piping hot water for washing of hands. The shower block is shared with the adjacent private site (5 unit too - Criffel View) and is only a short walk away. There is lots to do in the local area for families - our children are 9, 7 and 6. We particularly enjoyed the circular walk up to Wellington Monument from the site (do not let young children up the tower unattended), the beach at Sandyhills (worth walking a little way to the right/SW to get away from the crowds) and Mabie Forest Park. This site and area is definitely on out 'to return to' list.

Stunning site

Landis Farm
Stayed for six nights on our way south from the Highlands. Absolutely wonderful site. Peaceful with spotless facilities and an amazing number of birds to spot whilst relaxing near the van. Colin and Sandra were perfect hosts, helpful but not intrusive and the tour of the tractors was an added bonus. Showers spotless and well laid out. The walk into New Abbey was not taxing and the Café in the village was an added bonus. Would love to visit again.

Beautiful views

Landis Farm

Warm welcome on arrival by Colin, and a choice of lovely well spaced pitches. Each pitch has its own unique vista, wether this be Criffle Hill, the Waterloo Monument or some of the vintage farm machinery and tractors. All the facilities were spotless, with hand gel readily available and Sandra making regular rounds to keep everything spic and span. A short walk from the site led to Sweetheart Abbey, and the local cafe, selling excellent coffee and scones amongst many other choices. We had a fabulous peaceful and relaxing stay, our first outing for 2021 as the restrictions start to ease. Hope to be back again! One of the best CL’s we have had the privilege to stay at in our 30 years of caravanning.
