Why stay here ...

Colin and Sandra Carruthers welcome you to Landis Farm. We are a small family run caravan park for touring caravans and motor homes located on the outskirts of the beautiful village of New Abbey in South West Scotland.

We welcome visitors from all over the world and we want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Our secluded site is located on our own farmland meaning you get peace and quiet from the moment you arrive. We're surrounded by stunning views of the country side yet are only a short drive from all major amenities.

All pitches have electric hook up and are hard standing. There is a w/c and wash hand basin with hot and cold water. We are a small, friendly site based on a working farm which has been in our family for over eighty years. We are lucky to be situated in the unspoilt countryside of Dumfries and Galloway. The quiet surroundings offer peace and tranquillity 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 find!

We have just stayed at this CL for 4 nights. We received a fantastic welcome and were impressed with how well kept the site was. The hard standing pitches were generous in size and surprisingly tranquil given its on a working farm. New Abbey is an easy walk away where there’s a fab local pub. We enjoyed some excellent walks around the area. The road leading up to the CL is narrow but ok if you take it steady. We will definitely be back! Thank you for looking after us so well.

Great little site

Stayed here for 2 nights in our motorhome with the dog. Very well organised CL. Pitches are well spaced, hard standing with pleasant views. We liked the painted farm machinery dotted around the place and old tractors in the barn, a nice bit of history. There was a loo on site which also doubled up as an info center. Good walks from site. We walked to town and had a nice meal at the local pub which was dog friendly, looked around Sweetheart Abbey. There is also a small village shop, tea room and gift shop and a mill that you can visit in town. A great little site. Would highly recommend a stay here.

Our visit to Landis Farm Nov.2017

We arrived on the 2nd Nov.to a warm welcome from Colin albeit the entry road is a little narrow ,we have a 29ft Motor home with a tow car but it just needs a bit of careful driving 👍The CL itself is a little gem (even in November) Colin and Sandra were excellent hosts ,on leaving Sandra drove in front of us to the main road to make sure our exit was clear 👍😊The birdlife on the site is brilliant with so many different species and feeders all around to attract them in.All in all a great 5 night stay .Thank you Colin and Sandra.

A First Class Site

As many have already written this CL is a little gem tucked away in the Dumfries countryside.We booked for 2 nights as a stop-over on the way to The Rhinns of Galloway but we will be back to spend more time in this beautiful area but I suspect we will have to book well in advance as these reviews will only make this CL even more popular. The site is very peaceful but is on a working farm so don't expect silence. The access lane from the main road is narrow with many twists and turns so needs to be taken steadily. The site is excellently maintained. Dumfries & Galloway is famed for it's 'Dark Skies' and there is very little extraneous light at night so take a torch if you want to pick your way to the toilet block after dark.
