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. Shared Shower with our commercial site, disabled wet room with ramp access is also shared. 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.

A rearly good site

The c/l site is very good overlooking the hills. Toilet on site, with 2 shower rooms and toilet on small site 90yds . These were the best we have ever been to spacious clean, chairs everything .you could not ask for The surrounding countryside is fantastic ,very peaceful roads ideal if you have a motor home. We would like to have stayed an extra night but full. Walking in area good pleasant walk down to village 15 min. Pub and local shop. Pub closes early if not busy closing up at 8.15 the one night .they do food from 5pm a few people eating most nights. This is one of the best stop we have had on any c/l

Perfect pitch.

A beautiful little site, trees and plants surround each pitch and the birds frequent the bird feeders in the trees. We enjoyed a very good welcome and will certainly visit again.

Cracking little CL

We stayed just one night whilst driving on the SWC300 route. Lovely people and probably the best CL we have used. Great location and very dog friendly. Provided a good toilet facility and each pitch was hardstanding with a table and bench. Lovely gardens with bird feeders making it a popular wildlife spot. Sometimes we pick routes and choose CLs along the way but occasionally you find one that you hope to return to and spend more time. For us, this site is one we will revisit when we get the chance. Would not hesitate to recommend.

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.
