Why stay here ...

New England Bay is a coastal Club Site on the shore of Luce Bay. It is carefully landscaped into seven pitching areas, each with a different character and lovely sea views. The Caravan and Motorhome Club Site has direct access to a clean and sandy beach which is ideal for swimming, sailing, water sports and sea angling. The peaceful and picturesque location also provides an ideal base for exploring the machars and Rhins of Galloway, one of the unspoilt corners of Scotland.

The area surrounding New England Bay Club Site has a wealth of wild flowers and bird life, the Galloway Coastal Path follows the site boundary on the beach side and the quiet lanes are ideal for cycling and running. Terally Riding Centre, 2 miles away, offers pony trekking. The nearby RSPB Visitor Centre and Mull of Galloway Lighthouse will provide a range of entertainment and education for you and your family. The nearby town of Stranraer has golf courses, green bowling, a swimming pool, sports centre, theatre and cinema. There are a number of local gardens to visit including Port Logan Botanic Gardens, Ardwell Gardens and Logan House Gardens, while Castle Kennedy Gardens and Glenwhan Gardens are a pleasant drive from the site. That Marine Fish Pond is a Victorian curiosity. Port Patrick, only a 20 minute drive away, is a pretty harbour with a Lifeboat Station, shops and good places to eat. The Titanic experience in Belfast is a possible excursion from Cairnryan Port.

A gem of a site but be aware it’s windy!

This is a beautiful site for peace and relaxation. We did not use the facilities so can’t comment but there were a few sanitisers at reception. It was lovely and tidy and plenty of room around the pitches. We chose one at the back for more shelter due to the wind. There are a few very secluded pitches which the warden suggested when we were checking in as it was our first venture out after shielding. We felt very safe and always used anti bac wipes whilst filling up with water or using the bins etc. The ground is very hard but be aware that after a lot of rain (and boy did we have some) that the access grass to the pitches can get a bit churned up. One negative comment is that the motorhome point had only one smallish drain and as our waste emptying tap was on the wrong side we had to position ourselves the best we could to allow it to drain. We did wash over the spilled water. As there is a one way system we could only come in one way but the warden said that we could have came in the other way so that we would have been able to position ourselves over the drain. As we all know rules are rules and I’m sure there would have been a comment if we had gone the wrong way around the one way system, so please make the drain big enough to access both sides of the motorhome. If you are cycling to the Mull of Galloway lighthouse please be aware there are a lot of hills and even with an electric bike we had to get off and push on a few of them but well worth it in the end.

Recent trip

My husband and I have just returned from a week at this site. The location is lovely although the road from Stranraer to the site is quite bumpy. The site is quite large but subdivided with bushes. We found that the pitches were quite uneven and it was difficult to work out where one started and another ended. The band system in the toilet blocks is definitely not robust. I understand what they are trying to do but perhaps having 2 toilet hooks, 2 shower hooks and 2 sink hooks may be a more practical approach and still allow 2 meter distancing. It does rely on the person remembering to take their band and on a few occasions they had been left behind and I had to go in after waiting quite a while. I would also recommend hand sanitiser being available in the toilet blocks and at the bin/water areas too. Lovely area but not sure I would choose to return to.

Perfection

Loved this site. Enjoyed a front row pitch, seconds from the fabulous beach, great for strolling or just sitting watching the tides. All facilities were spotless and well managed thanks to the hard working site team. Biked to Port Logan with the cutest Telford designed harbour and fishing pond. Lunch at the botanical garden. Sad to leave the area.

Relaxing and quiet site right by the beach

We only managed to stay for one night because the weather turned bad but based on that I would return for a second visit. The site is close to the beach and had a nice relaxed atmosphere. The toilet and shower facilities were ok but there were no anti bac materials, apart from a soap dispenser on the communal sink, so if you want to be sure that you are suitably protected best to take your own. They were using a crazy restricted entry system in the toilet block so only two people could enter the room at any one time. This meant that if one was in the shower, and one using the sink you couldn't go in to use the toilet despite the fact that all three of you would be more than 2 meters apart! The system also only worked if people remembered to leave their wrist band on the hooks outside or remembered to collect their wrist band when they had finished.

Lovely stay

I had a fantastic stay at this site with my daughter over the bank holiday weekend. Due to the spacious layout of the site, despite being full, it felt very safe and never overcrowded. Very friendly, hardworking staff. Great place to stay. My only suggestion would be for the toilet pegs to be changed so there's 2 shower ones and 2 toilet ones... or maybe just 3 pegs ( with only 2 showers in use), often there was a long queue for the toilet cause 2 showers were in use. I really appreciate the positive attitude to opening the sites, so it is just a suggestion, following a wonderful few days based on this lovel site.
