Why stay here ...

The CL at South Port ‘O’ Spittal, with sea views, is situated a short 10 minute drive away from the picture post-card harbour village of Portpatrick.  The village boasts a few excellent pubs and restaurants overlooking the harbour.  The village itself is home to a top notch lifeboat and the famous lifeboat week in August attracts many visitors to the village.

Within one hour of the CL is the Mull of Galloway, the most southern part of Scotland and home to an RSPB nature reserve. There are a number of designated walks in the area including the Mull of Galloway Trail.

For those with an interest in gardens there are the Logan Botanic Gardens, arguably Scotland's most exotic garden, whilst a short drive away to the north are the 75 acres of Castle Kennedy gardens.

A popular day trip is by ferry from nearby Cairnryan to the bustling city of Belfast with its excellent shopping possibilities and of course it’s first rate Titanic exhibition.

The nearest main centre is Stranraer with Tesco, Morrisons and Lidl available for the larger grocery shop and all the other usual facilities.

Within a short distance from the CL are a number of sports opportunities including golf, fishing, etc. The Ryan Centre at Stranraer is an indoor sports complex.

All in all, there is something for everyone within a short drive from Port ‘O’ Spittal.

Lovely CL! What a find!

We stayed on this CL for 5 nights from the 6th July. We booked by phone earlier in the year with no problems. We were greeted on arrival by Charles who looks after the site for Ian. He was friendly and showed us where all the facilities were. What a fantastic spot! Peaceful with stunning views across to Northern Ireland. Pitches on grass which was well kept and regularly mown. Toilet and shower facilities adequate for requirements. We had days out to Portpatrick, Mull of Galloway and Ballantrae. One of the best CLs we have stayed on! We will be back.

Just Amazing!

We were touring the area in our motorhome and not having any definite itinerary, didn't have any sites booked. We simply turned up at this site, initially just to take a look and see if it suited us. Wow, we were impressed! What an immaculately kept site with stunning sea views from all pitches.I won't go in to any great detail about the facilities as these are easily found in the sites book or the internet but we had never been on such a magnificent site offering so much for a very decent price. We were met by a very pleasant chap who looked after the site for the owner who lived onsite so was always available, should you need him at, various times of day. There is a steep path from the site that joins the Knockinaam Lodge road and allows access onto the beautiful beach. What a bonus. The weather was hot but windy and as darkness closed in, we sat and watched the lighthouses of Ireland flashing. So many were visible, just wonderful. We hope to return.....!!!!

Fabulous!

This CL is great. With fantastic views of Northern Ireland, a quiet peaceful site, well maintained ground (but you will need levelling blocks), wildlife watching opportunities, good showers and facilities, friendly people, excellent value for money - what more do you need?

Amazing views from the cliff tops

We had 3 days here and loved our visit. Ian was friendly on the phone and easy to book in with. The single track road is about 2 miles long and not for the faint hearted, we passed 2 cars with no passing place so had to do a bit of manoeuvring (glad hubby was driving). On arrival we sorted out our own pitch and saw Ian later. Shower and toilet facilities were clean and adequate. Cheap washing machine which I used as we were touring Port Patrick is delightful and we met friend were staying at the Mount Stewart where we had an excellent meal, also had very good food at The Crown. Both welcomed dogs. Lots of places to visit and good walks with wonderful views. The view from the site is amazing and we saw wild, rainy weather as well as lots of sunshine. Loved it and will definitely return.

Fabulous Views but we didn’t get off to a good start

Recently stayed on this site for 9 nights. Arrived but no one to meet us and no information board indicating where to site van and no pitch markers so we set up on the most level area left with a wonderful view. Unfortunately we were then asked to move as the area we had chosen is not for caravan use. A sign indicating this would have saved us an hour and a lot of hassle. Then had to move to a very sloping area of the site so our awning was a bit haywire. Facilities were ok but could do with a bit of sprucing up. Washing machine was a definite plus. Always more than 5 vans on site, as many as 9 at one time.
