Why stay here ...

Nestled on the edge of picturesque parkland, Strathclyde Country Park Club Site is the perfect holiday location for the entire family. On-site facilities include a woodland walk, play area for young children, as well as modern family washrooms and disabled facilities. There are also a handful of pitches suitable for larger outfits, which can be arranged through the site staff.

The country park is a pleasant ten minute walk from the site, with 1,000 acres of mature woodlands, wetlands, wildlife refuges and neat open parkland, set around Strathclyde Loch, offering unique bird and nature watching, miles of walking and cycle routes, as well as a whole range of watersports and golf. There are also several sites of historic interest within the parkland, such as the Bothwellhaugh Roman fort and bath house, and the nearby M and D's Theme Park is a great day out for kids. The shops and museums of Glasgow are within easy reach of the site and, further afield, Loch Lomond, Stirling and Edinburgh are within an hours drive, making this site an ideal base for exploring Southern Scotland.

Excellent location and so much to do close by

Very convenient for travelling into Scotland as so close to the M74, but this doesn't mean a disturbed night. Country Park has so much to offer. God eating close by and handy for Glasgow.

Super stopover site.

Is this the best run club site? If not, I need to stay at whichever is. Review scores based on one night en- route stopovers (3 now). Great location just off M74. Road noise didn't stop us sleeping (keep to the right of the site). Site and facilities absolutely spotless. Staff so warm and helpful. Good pitches. Country Park right next door for walks round the lake. What's not to like? For longer stays, handy for Glasgow, New Lanark.

Good overnighter.

We only stayed for one night. Ideal location just of the motorway, ready to travel if you were staying or carrying on. The wardens were pleasant helpful and courteous. Now! our problem was we assume the children of other members. Toilet paper all over the place in the gents toilet block. Toilets not flushed. Cubicles without toilet paper because of it being strewn all over the place, We stayed on Sunday night 5 May 2019. We assume it was children if it was fellow members, what is the world coming to.

Great central place to stay

We stayed here over the bank holiday weekend, had great weather, the facilities are always very clean here and it is handy if you want to go to M & Ds. There is lots to so roundabout as well. There was a bit of road noise but the site is right next to the motorway but you cant have accessibility and peace and quiet. Would happily go to this site again.

2 Nights 29 April 2019

This was stop 3 on our multi-stop tour from Lincolnshire to Scotland (and back) with 2 nights here after a two and a half hour drive from Berwick Seaview. Easy to find following satnav from the A725 and a really nice welcome from Samantha, the warden in reception who was also very helpful with directions for fuel and attractions nearby. This site is quite large with very well spaced pitches. There are several cultivated areas of flower beds and shrubs which break this big site up into a comfortable feeling of privacy giving your pitch a more secluded feeling which is really nice with the surrounding trees and nearby park giving a relaxing atmosphere. Only one of the two toilet/shower blocks was open on out arrival but the site was only partially full. This site had one of the best amenity blocks I have encountered. It was large, warm and very well maintained by the wardens. As mentioned by an earlier reviewer it even had piped music which was great to hear. I did hear people singing along from the shower cubicles but I don't think that Gareth Malone would find any prodigies here. . . We took a picnic and did the three and a half mile walk around the loch which made a really nice day out. Didn't have time to visit Glasgow on this stop though. There is constant background noise from the nearby traffic which is an issue to some people. Personally I prefer quite but it depends on how you feel about the sound, horses for courses here I think. Some reviews have mentioned the noisy boy racers in the park during the evenings but on our early in the week stay we didn't really hear any of this, perhaps it's more noticeable at weekends. We tried the nearby Toby Carvery which was good value and used it again for a breakfast on our last morning. It saved on a bit if time and was a last day treat. Not sure about Yorkshire pudding and breakfast gravy in the morning though. Strange~ Summary: A lovely well laid out site with a great team of friendly and helpful wardens. Be aware that there is a constant low level of road noise though. Next stop Bunree Club Site.
