End of season break

I agree with all of the latest reviews, however, I wish to add a couple of salient points. Colin directed me to a secluded and scenic pitch which turned out to be only 10 amps, which he failed to mention. Occasionally it tripped out even when using one appliance. Many pitches were also of 10 amps but many were 16 amps. We were not informed of the choice until it was too late to take down our awning etc. A CAMC should not be of such low amps, plus as we pay £25 per year for WiFi , I found it odd that not only did I have to request the password but had to contribute £1 to log in. Obviously it was not the amount but the principal.

Fantastic site!!

I visited this site for the second year running in mid July. It is a fabulous place, and very peacful, with great facilities, which are keep spotlessly clean. The pitches are on sandy grass, right beside the beach, mainly level, but take ramps with you, as some fiddling about can be required. The views from the beach are lovely, and a walk along there before bedtime is a must. I walked towards the river at the end of the beach one evening, and was rewarded by the site of 2 otters playing at the mouth of the river...amazing!! The gentleman who i assumed was the warden....but i think is actually the owner (Colin?) is super helpful and friendly. My advice would be to take plenty of supplies with you, as the shop in Carradale village is very poor, with only basic items really.....and when are they going to clean up the "scrapyard" at the harbour....it really brings down that bit. We ate in the Carradale Hotel one evening.....fabulous food at good prices....service was a bit slow.....but we were on holiday, so what the heck!! I can't wait to go back to the Carradale Bay Site....if you're looking for somewhere to chillout......it's here!!!

Stunning location, super beach walking.

Visited in mid April 2018 we had a lovely midge free stay, weather was even good enough to BBQ. We loved our walks along the beach and the sea views. I had read that hook-ups were only 6 Amp but It turned out they had been upgraded to 16 Amp. My only criticism was that the toilet block was not heated, but don't let that put you off this wonderful site. Pitches are on grass but very firm as the soil is sandy almost like being on hard standing. A gem of a site.

All time favourite site

Our all time favourite site. Quiet, away from it all, fantastic beach just a few meters away, dog friendly... A long and winding road to get there, but more than worth it, with great views along the way. The air is so clear that you can hear the gannets diving in the bay. Toilet block and showers spotless (only comment is it's hard to keep clothes dry in the cubicle...) Can't wait to go back.

A glimps of heaven

I have been coming to this site since I was 13 years of age. Its beauty and wild surroundings captured my heart from the first trip. The narrow road, although not easy for the less skilled driver to negotiate is surrounded by the most stunning views as it winds its way to Carradale Bay. The magic continues as your approach to the site as it takes you through the estate who's pretty woodland rich in flora and fauna runs by the side of the river Carra, meandering through the dale. The cottage in the wood conjured many magical images as its pretty storybook frontage sets the imagination racing. The winding road continues until it opens out to the entrance of the site which welcomes you into its heavenly embrace. The owner Colin continues the special feeling with his warm and welcome greeting, everything as beautiful and well tended as it always is. Any stress or problems are left at the entrance for the whole of the holiday as this magical place embraces you with its beauty and wild enchantment. The excitement for me builds as I rush to set up so that we can get the dogs and ourselves onto the beach and for walks to fully appreciate the full vista and its beauty of this stunning site. Pure heaven, clean, wild and unspoilt. Overlooking Arran and Ailsa Craig, through storm or flat calm weather this place has captured my heart and soul. Truly a gem of a site, which is run with the care and attention it deserves with excellent clean facilities. Cant wait to revisit my little bit of heaven.
