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.

Wonderful site

Just arrived home after 4 night stay on this lovely site. Charles, (who looks after the site for the owner Ian) was there to greet us and advise on where and how to pitch up. There is an area for 4 units to pitch on the grass and a large grass area opposite which isn't for pitching: thus ensuring everyone can enjoy the wonderful views. There are a further couple of grass pitches nearer to the facilities, which also have great views. Both the owner and Charles have their own caravans pitched on hardstanding at the site entrance separate to the cl. We encountered no problems at all with the access road, which has been repaired and resurfaced following the dreadful storms earlier in the year. There are brand new showers fitted and the use of both a washing machine and drier. There are walks to Portpatrick direct from thesite (took us 2 hours there and 1 hour back). Nearest supermarkets are Lidl and Morrisons on the edge of Stranraer-15 minutes away. 5 minute drive to Colfin Creamery, which is open for lunches, afternoon teas and during the evening at the weekends if you fancy something a bit nicer than the usual pub grub; booking is recommended as they get quite busy. Overall we had a fabulous time and thoroughly recommend this site: we will definitely return!

Nice site, Bad weather

My wife and I visited this CL in the second week of March 2019. The approach to the site consisted of more potholes than road surface with some of the potholes being very deep, We were greeted by Charles who helps out on the farm and the site, and who was very helpful with were to position our caravan, with the impending arrival of Storm Gareth in the next few hours. We pitched up in a stiff breeze, the views across towards Ireland were out standing, which also meant that we could see the weather coming towards us. We decided to go out and explore, which meant the dreaded access road, which was not a deal better without the caravan hitched up. We ended up in Stranraer, a lot smaller than I expected, but we managed to get something to eat, and then made our way back, the potholes were worse in the dark and when we arrived back the storm was building, I don't know how but we weathered the storm even though at times we thought that we would either tip over or have the roof and side panels ripped away in the winds. After a sleepless night we left at first light the next morning, only to have to face the potholes once again. I can definitely say that this is the worst night we have ever spent, in over 30 years of caravanning. On a sunny day with no wind I can imagine that this would be a lovely Site, especially if the owner filled the potholes in, a couple of lorryloads of road stone would go along way.

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.....!!!!
