Why stay here ...

Ayr Craigie Gardens Club Site is in the grounds of Craigie Estate with access close by to the River Ayr. It is within easy walking distance of the seaside town of Ayr with its long sandy beach and excellent shopping facilities. It is close to Ayr Racecourse and adjacent to the new campus for the University of the West of Scotland. There is a station nearby, offering easy access into the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. You can enjoy a bus trip from Ayr to Ireland at a very reasonable cost.

The beautiful Ayrshire countryside provided the inspiration for the National Bard of Scotland, Robbie Burns - the Burns Heritage Trail and the Burns Heritage Centre at Alloway is a must for visitors to Ayr Craigie Gardens Club Site. Culzean Castle and Country Park is easily accessible from the site and the boasts a dramatic clifftop setting. Golf enthusiasts will be in their element as there are no less than 40 golf courses in the area, which is why Ayr is known as the 'Golf Coast'. The caravan park also offers fun for the kids at nearby Heads of Ayr Farm Park, where they can to see the animals and enjoy the rides. An excursion on the Waverley or Balmoral is not to be missed as these are the only sea going paddle steamers in the world and will let you view some memorably scenic landscapes. Ferry crossings can also be made further along the coast to the Island of Arran, known as Scotland in miniature.

Perfect site

Perfect site just about an hour from our home, we have used for many years and always enjoyed. So glad remaining open as there has been rumours of being turned into a car park. What a mess that would be and meaning more trees cut down and of course no revenue for the club or town. Some people say toilets need upgraded, no they don't, they are perfectly clean and suitable for use. If you think otherwise then use facilities in your own caravan or Transit. Road in now repaired makes such a difference. Thanks to wardens for last 5 years and our best wishes at New England Bay, you have done a great job at Craigie and trust those coming next will do same. looking forward to returning next year.

Great site

Years since I’ve been here. Warm welcome and everything explained by lady warden. Very established site with a lovely coziness to it. Felt like home. Beautiful flower tubs around. Lots of cycling walking around the area. Will go back.

Short Stay!

Stopped for 2 nights whilst on short tour of Scotland. Unique location very quiet and tranquil yet close to Ayr town and also lovely walks with dog along the riverside walk away from Ayr. Wardens very friendly and helpful and site well maintained and laid out. No dog walk on site is not a problem as right outside entrance is wooded and grasses area well lit at night and dog bins provided. Well worth a visit to this site.

Great site, friendly staff, close to city centre!

The site was lovely. We arrived to find the site well maintained with beautiful flowers in full bloom. The staff were excellent. It was my first time on a cc site and I explained this. They went out their way to ensure my stay was good. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay. I had no issues. The facilities were immaculate and you could see they were kept very very clean. The facilities are slightly dated and to some people they would probably say they should upgrade them. In my opinion yes it would be a nice to have but not a necessity. They are immaculate and well kept. A must visit and we shall return. Many thanks to the staff for ensuring we had an enjoyable and peaceful stay.

Perfect Site Just as it is

Arrived for a 1 night stop over & stayed for 4 nights whilst touring the area. Fabulously Friendly Wardens, Spotlessly Clean Facilities - Why DO They Need Updating ?? The moaners should stay at home as they are not Campers - We would rather the Pitch Fees Reduced than waste club money on 5" Facilities for a quick wash & brush up.to appease those who sit in their Vans All Day Watching TV! We managed to avoid the entrance pot holes but by day 4 they have been repaired & all is good. Very peaceful, Perfectly placed for exploring - a real Jewel in the Crown of club sites, Fingers X the site has a secure future. Thanks for an Enjoyable Stay
