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.

Beautiful site

large open site all grass pitches. it slopes slightly towards the sea but it is also terraced so no problem with levelling. we pitched on the front right up the end, we were protected from the beach by sand dunes but the beach was about 100 yards through the dunes to a beautiful sandy beach perfect for walking the dogs. lots of circular walks off the site all available from the tourist information hut on the site. fish and chips available Friday and Wednesday evenings are were delicious. pretty decent shop in the office too serving local ice cream - lovely. we had a really enjoyable few days here on our way to Ireland, the tidal sea pond is interesting and worth a visit as is the lighthouse. we would go again our dogs loved the beach

Fantastic as always

Just returned from another lovely stay. As always, all the wardens were hard working, friendly and helpful. The shop is well stocked compared to previous years, and the site is perfectly kept. The only downside for us this time was some inconsiderate visitors on site who let their kids play and ride their bikes around our van, which kept us on edge somewhat! Also some visitors were driving onto the beach over any point they chose and not the vehicular access part. Not a massive issue but it seems a shame to damage the beautiful scenery through idleness or ignorance. Will definitely return, as this is our favourite ever site. Thank you to all the lovely wardens who as usual were brilliant.

A wonderful quiet site.

My wife & i just had out first 4 night stay here & were heartbroken to leave, the views are stunning the weather was typically Scottish (wait 5 mins for it to change) The beach is less than 100yrds from the edge of the site & fishing anywhere along the coast is permitted, this has to be what a perfect site looks like, but there is one thing, the facility's, while these is nothing wrong with them & there are two blocks on site they just seem rather small for the amount of people that can be on site, on one occasion i had to wait around for a toilet to become free, ok i didn't wait too long but not everyone can hold on, otherwise we will be back we hope our net stay is just as good as this one, Finally i love my Motorhome and when driving it, us Motorhomers wave to each other like old friends, yet when on site people rarely even say hello? Come one people be sociable.

Room with a view

This was a pretty large campsite but had the advantage of offering pitches with views, pitches with privacy or pitches with a bit of both. The pitches on the front, whilst enjoying uninterrupted views were more open to the elements and any movement on site. We chose a pitch at the back of the site where they are quieter and largely screened by gorse bushes. To the front of our pitch was an open area of wildflowers leading up to the hillside. It was idyllic.

Perfect for nature

Four nights at probably the best club site we've visited. Been a member for seven years and loved the site. Perfect for nature lovers and dog walkers. Well worth a visit.
