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.

What a place

Landis Farm
What a wonderful place to stay such peace and tranquillity ,a wee bit hairy down the narrow lane to the site as having a twin axle and eight foot wide we tended not to have much room for error. But once here you get a warm and wonderful welcoming from the owners the facilities are great for a C L site including a great shower room . Close by the town of Dumfries , but still enough off the beaten track if you just want to chill , probably not ideal for young families as not a lot to do on site . A lovely walk off the site to Airds point across fields for about two miles . Some very interesting antique farm equipment and I must say the most tidiest and well kept farm yard I have ever seen . Will look forward to returning 👍

Perfect stay-in the countryside.

Landis Farm
Stayed here for a week and loved every minute,we were surrounded by well kept gardens and everywhere was tidy.The owners are very helpful and approachable and lent me an extension lead when we had a problem with our car.We both loved the bird life around us and watching the bats in the evening flying around the van.There are plenty of walks from the site including down to the Solway and the ruins of new abbey which has a nice cafe at the car park.Defo one of our best sites we have visited and hope to go back again soon.

Fabulous CL - one of the very best

Landis Farm

We stayed for two nights to catch our breath between the drive up from the West Country and the beginning of a Highlands & Islands tour. As one of the previous reviewers highlighted, don’t be put off by the half acre description - the pitches are plenty big enough and very discrete with planting to separate them. The site is beautifully laid out and incredibly well kept - as are the facilities (separate WC for the CL, very smart new shower block shared with the commercial site). Colin is a wonderful host - he could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Landis is a working farm (part of its attraction for us) but noise is absolutely minimal - and Colin has a collection of tractors that date back to the 1940’s that are fascinating if you are interested in old machinery and agricultural history. The Estuary walk from the site is lovely - particularly if you take the long way back. The village of New Abbey is a short & pleasant walk away - if you do that walk, don’t miss the opportunity for lunch at Abbey Cottage tea room! In short, Landis Farm is a cut above the rest - by some distance!

Wow beautiful site

Landis Farm
We were greeted by the owners and shown to our spacious pitch. Couldn't stop saying wow. Nicest cl we have stayed on in over 40 yrs of touring. Don't be put off by the half acre description there is loads of room all the pitches are large and surrounded with shrubs and flowers. The wet rooms on the sister site are fabulous and only a couple of minutes away. Lots to see in the area. Anyone who books this or their sister site will not be dissapointed.
