Why stay here ...

New England Bay is a coastal Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

Fantastic Site

New England Bay Club Campsite
Stayed here June 22 for 10 nights. Lovely site right next to the beach. Good choice of pitches with lots of room between them. Wardens were really helpful.The facilities were good and kept spotlessly clean. Visited Portpatrick and had a lovely lunch outside the Harbour House hotel then a walk up to Dunsky Castle. Really lovely countryside with amazing deserted beaches. We will be back

Fabulous site with real character

New England Bay Club Campsite
We stayed here for just one night as part of a 2-week road trip and will definitely return for a longer visit. What a beautiful location! We particularly liked the non-standard layout of the site and the different areas, that all had a different feel to them. The facilities were okay. They were clean and fit for purpose, but could do with updating, and at the time of our visit, one of them had run out of gas, so we were advised not to use it. The laundry room was great - plenty of room for me in my wheelchair and my assistance dog to help me. The accessible shower room was okay, though a couple of other campers seemed to use it as a smoking room and afterwards, it stank of cigarettes! The beach is lovely, with stunning views over the bay. With my off-road wheelchair, there were a couple of paths wide enough for me to get onto the beach. The top half is pebble, which was difficult to travel over but it was nice to just sit and look at the sea. If they ever wanted to put in a wheelchair access ramp though, that would make it amazing! The site staff were very friendly and helpful, with good local knowledge. Looking forward to planning a longer holiday in New England Bay.

Quiet Site with Great Beach

New England Bay Club Campsite
The site is in a great location with a nice beach - a mix of pebbles and sand. Despite the site being busy, the beach was very quiet. For the two days we were there, there were only ever a handful of people on the beach when we visited. As newbies, we opted for a pitch with proximity to the sea and definitely felt quite buffeted at points. You have to balance being closest to the sea with being more exposed to the elements. Although we didn't use the toilets or showers, the facilities seemed good and there was a regular cleaning schedule. There's a small park and a games room for children but we didn't see many children or teens on-site when we were there. It skewed to older clientele and lots of dogs. Staff were friendly and efficient. It is quite remote so it's probably best to stock up before you go. The site does have a shop but it's small and expensive. However, you should definitely try their amazing Yorkshire chocolate loaf!

Wonderful location if you want peace

New England Bay Club Campsite
This is a delightful site for peace and quiet, for walking and cycling - when the weather is kind. We had mostly "Scotland at its best weather" and cycled to Drunmore, for a friendly, simple pub lunch, which although along a main road was less busy and safer than a country lane in the south east of England.
