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.

NEW ENGLAND BAY TOP MARKS AGAIN!!

We've just returned from a 8 night stay here on this site and its just how it was when we stayed there 5 years ago, the wardens were very friendly and helpful, its perfect for dog walking or the kids straight on to the beach, toilets and showers were spotless as usual. This site is faultless and we would highly recommend this to all caravaners, 10 minute drive and you are in Stranraer, and other nice places to visit such as Portpatrick and Port Logan, and a nice pub just 5 minutes drive away which serves lovely meals is the Clashwannon Pub in Drumore.

Fabulous!

Got home today from 4 nights at New England Bay. We did not want to come home. The site is very easy to find following the website directions. The welcome at reception was warm and friendly and we were told we had a good choice of pitches as 20 pitches had been vacated that morning and of course the end of September is a quiet time of year. We got pitched up along the front overlooking the beach. Trip up and you almost land on the beach it’s that close! The weather for the most part was lovely. We were treated to the most wonderful sunrise everyday and watching the harvest moon rise and reflect on a calm sea was magical. There is very little light pollution in the area so we would try and return when there is no moon do some star gazing. Galloway is of course a dark sky site. We had a good time exploring the area and we will certainly be back. There are some very nice beaches around the area and most places have parking places so it’s great for jumping out and having an explore before moving on somewhere else. On Tuesday evening there was a chip van on site which served the nicest chips we’ve had in a long time. Another evening a van selling fresh fish drove around the site. We are already trying to work out when we can return.

Fantastic site if the weather is on your side

Spent a few days hear earlier this year, A one minute walk to the beach, spotless toilet blocks, super friendly helpful wardens, plenty wildlife right on site, we saw stoats , rabbits and numerous birds. We always take a bird feeder with us and nowhere have we had so many birds coming to visit every day :-) Fantastic location and we had fabulous weather too, but if the weather turns nasty i can imagine its a totally different kind of Holiday, having said that part of me wants to stay here when the rain and wind are coming in horizontally from the sea...... One thing to be aware of is the amount of jelly fish washed up on the beach every day, wasnt a problem for us but its something to keep an eye out for.....didn't stop the kids going for a swim in the sea or the dogs having a good old time on the beach.......

Great site, but......

Fantastic site, great location, staff all amazing and helpful. Only really one minor issue, for a family site the children’s play area is somewhat lacking. At the moment there is only a small slide. No swings, no roundabouts etc etc. A little money spent here would make such a difference for the kids. That all said would revisit.
