Why stay here ...

Newark Farm is a working beef and sheep farm within walking distance of Sanquhar which has an indoor swimming pool with fitness suite, golf, rail link into the heart of Glasgow, small theatre and all the amenities of a small town. Sanquhar is steeped in history with a free local museum.

We have lawned gravel pitches which are suitable for motorhomes and remain well drained over the winter months. 

We deliver milk, rolls, free range eggs and newspapers to your caravan door upon request.

There is also a motorhome drainage point available on the farm should members need to use it.

We look forward to welcoming you to our CL.

Ideally situated for overnight stops or longer breaks if you enjoy walking.

Easy access from the A76 – there is a CAMHC club sign as you arrive at the first warning to reduce speed to 30 mph for Sanquhar. Another is at the CL entrance immediately after you pass the 30 mph warning sign – look out for the white bungalow / entrance to site which is on the left side of the road. The CL is located at the end of the farm track. Closely mown, slightly sloping field with views. 10 amp electric and free WiFi (Variable signal). It was a bonus to see rabbits running around the field. There are 5 clearly marked electric hook up points all offering generous sized pitches. Weather permitting (!) there are lovely views of the countryside from all the pitches. Mrs Barbour can arrange milk and bread deliveries if required. She also had a number of information leaflets available – return these at the end of your stay. There are a number of walks in the area – can recommend the walk along the river towards Sanquhar. Sanquhar itself has a number of small shops including 2 supermarkets and a garage at the far end of the high street.

Fabulous site

We only stayed here 2 nights on our way home. What a shame as it was fabulous. We never saw Frances as she was away but sounded lovely on the phone. We just gave our fees to another Caravanner who was staying longer . The views are fantastic and the site is a 5 minute walk from Sanquhar. We had a lovely walk into the village. There is also a lovely river walk from the site. The site is very peaceful and plenty space for each caravan. The amenities are very good and clean. Would definitely recommend this site.

AMAZING

We arrived at this site without booking on 28th July. We were made most welcome . The site is spotless and the views excellent. The hostess was very very helpful and gave us a lot of information about the local area. She even offered to get some shopping for us, but as there is a well stocked SPAR just a short walk away we declined. I would definately reccommend this CL and have to say it is probably the best CL we have ever visited.

Home in the hills

Once again I’m at my home in the hills,as always,a friendly welcome is given by James and Frances the owners,the site is easily accessible from the A76 but tucked behind the farm which restricts any road noise, it is a working farm but the owners take every precaution to alert you should any tractor or animal movements be taking place near to the site.The site is kept neat and tidy, Frances is very informative and passionate about her locality,she also offers to deliver bread,rolls,milk and newspapers every morning on request,I have been using this site for a few years now and have no hesitation in recommending it for a stay. Already looking forward to my next visit.Thankyou and god bless you both.

Disgusted

My wife and I booked a five night stay on this CL after reading previous reviews. As an understatement, we were greatly disappointed to find one caravan on the site which was totally unoccupied and a further two caravans used by workers who were leaving the site shortly after 6.00 a.m. We were there at the end of November and looking forward to a relaxing and peaceful time, the weather was freezing and the workers were running engines to defrost their vehicles outside our caravan window. Doors were banging and they were talking extremely loudly on their mobile phones. We suffered this for three nights and then informed the owners that we were leaving. As a point of interest, there had been no welcome or contact with the owners since our arrival. Prior to leaving, we visited the house, no one was there so my wife called the owner on her mobile phone to let them know why we were leaving. We have since submitted a complaint to the Club. Our advice is that if you are considering making a booking, please ensure there are no workers residing on the site. The owner never thought to let us know about this and we will never consider staying on this site again.
