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.

Lovely location but exposed

New England Bay Caravan Club Site
Lovely location, right on the shoreline. Toilet facilities very clean and the whole site very well maintained. Friendly staff. Apart from Logan Botanic Gardens, there's zero "to do" in the area; 5 miles to Drummore and the single shop, or ten miles to Stranraer, which is a town in decline since the ferry terminal moved. But it's an exposed spot, and the ground is sandy soil on top of pebbles; effectively an old part of the beach. This means it's really hard to get pegs into the ground, and when they do go in they don't stay, Combined with the exposed site, this means any awnings take a real pounding. Note that there is very little sand on the beach, its mostly pebble. The beach a few miles away at Port Logan is much better (for dog walking, anyway). In summary, it's a nice site but the location isn't the best.

On tour

New England Bay Caravan Club Site
Visited site for one night while touring Scotland, September 21 Pictures on caravan club site show well maintained shoreline with brilliant views When we arrived quite a few sea view hook ups were taped off and not working , we hooked up further down shoreline beach front, but had no views due to all bushes being overgrown in front of us , don't know why these were not trimmed and , we booked the site on route purely for the reason of relaxing and enjoying the views , surely this is their greatest selling point and they are not maintaining the best parts of the site for the sea view experience P and A ON TOUR

Just What I Needed

New England Bay Caravan Club Site
This was one of the main sites that I had booked for my tour of south west Scotland. 5 nights here and could have stayed for another 5. Fortunately I had a pitch along the front at the far end, having driven round the site 3 times and not found anything suitable. Staff were friendly as you would expect and there were plenty of water points for my needs. It was nice to have a small shop as there is not really another shop for a few miles. Good that they took card and cash, unlike another club!!! The toilet block nearest me seemed to be small and wasn't sure if the number of showers/toilets would cope, but there was never any queue when I needed to use, so maybe they had that right. Altogether a lovely quiet site, with direct access to the beach and plenty of walks/cycle rides to fill yer boots.

Secluded and peaceful stay

New England Bay Caravan Club Site
A lovely well-maintained club site with helpful and welcoming site staff. There is a wide selection of pitches either sea-facing or in a more secluded spot. The location of the site is very remote and isolated which may suit some more than others.

Positive first visit

New England Bay Caravan Club Site
This is our first time visiting the site and we were very pleased with how it compared to the description online. Looking at other reviews, we had no issues with the staff or facilities which were up to the standard that we expect on CAMC sites. Access to the beach was easy and the area is great for cycling due to the relatively remote location - quiet roads. The site was pretty busy, when we were looking round, some of the free pitches were quite sloped and the ground is rocky so good pegs are required if you've got an awning. We managed to find a pitch that had a view east and watching the sunrise was great. We've not had an issue with our electric and have been here 5 days. We will definitely becoming again (despite the 340 mile trip to get here for us) and would love to come in the winter if it was open all year.
