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.

Beautiful views

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.

Pretty and peaceful site

Was met on arrival with a welcoming and friendly smile, and could immediately see how well kept and pretty the location was. The pitch size is fantastic and the views are amazing, we had the pleasure of being neighboured next to the goats which was an added bonus for entertainment! Every detail on the site, such as the painted farm machinery and flowers, to well manicured grass and bird feeders dotted all around made this CL site so pretty. Everything is clean, well positioned, private and it is ideally situated for some lovely walks with the dogs. Also, the local village has a lovely gift shop/cafe ‘Abbey Cottage Tea Rooms’ and I would definitely recommend popping in for something to eat or just a coffee and sweet treat, you won’t be disappointed. Our first ever visit to Scotland but we would definitely visit again and look to stay at Landis Farm.

Lovely site

Just back from a 4 night stay at Landis Farm. Very peaceful site with very helpful and welcoming hosts. Plenty walking directly from the site and/or a short drive away. There is direct access to the Kirkconnel flow, although the walking route was a wellie job due to a couple of muddy gateways. 10 minute drive to a lovely beach at Sandy Hills. Exceptionally clean and well kept site with sanitisers at the major touch points. Liked it so much we booked for over New Year before we left

wonderful location and site

We stayed for 9 nights in August 2020 and had a wonderful time. The site is on a farm looking out to Criffel and within walking distance of New Abbey. Farm has an amazing collection of vintage tractors, most of which were in regular use whilst we were there. Toilets and showers are clean and modern. Best CL we've stayed at. Lovely views and plenty of space on each pitch. The goats are amusing and enjoy standing on the rocks and stumps in their field, and the cat always seems to know when its mealtime!

10 days at Landis Farm

We recently stayed at Landis Farm for 10 days and had a lovely time despite a of bad weather. The site it's self is well laid out and the 5 pitches are well spaced to allow for minimal intrusion on fellow members, the access to fresh water and other site ammenties is very good and there is a toilet block on site and a shower block on an adjacent private site which can be used by club members. Access to the site is good and all the pitches are hard standing. It is a very quiet site with views of the surrounding country side and easy access to the village of New Abbey either by road or on foot where there is a pub, shop and a good cafe next to the Abbey. The site is well placed to allow members to explore both the stunning country side and the South West Coast of Scotland and is a good place for bird watchers to see the many migrant birds that pass through this area. Towns like Dumfries and Castle Douglas are also easily accessible where there are a good range of shops cafes and pubs and some excellent museums to visit like the Devils Porridge Museum and the lovely little Savings Bank Museum. This for us is a site we will revisit and soon I hope.
