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.

Great site but getting somewhat tired

Ayr Craigie Gardens Caravan Club Site
This is our 3rd visit to this site and it doesn’t disappoint. Great wardens and very clean and tidy site. The shower and toilet facilities need to be upgraded but this does not distract from the attraction of this site. The wardens do an excellent job with what they have to work with so hats off to them. Looking to be back soon and to soak up that sunshine on millionaires row.

Lovely but a little bit tired

Ayr Craigie Gardens Caravan Club Site
We both like Ayr site a lot , wardens lovely, spotlessly clean our only negative is the toilets etc are now looking very tired. This would not put us off visiting again, and yes the town is very like most towns today, boarded up or closed but…. I will still visit!

Well kept site

Ayr Craigie Gardens Caravan Club Site
This site was a stop gap for us as we were travelling around Scotland. The site itself is absolutely beautiful, very well kept and clean throughout. Couldn’t fault it. The staff were friendly and helpful. The facilities were as you would expect of a CAMC site, clean and well looked after, covid safe etc. The only downside was the city of Ayr, but this is most likely my personal opinion, the streets were dirty (dog mess & litter) it is clear there is a degree of poverty in the area, shops were boarded up and closed, again covid is to blame for this I guess. This has absolutely no bearing on the CAMC and this site at all, I just wanted to mention it because I’m being honest. The site is lovely and we would return to the site should we need to, however we would not leave site for sight seeing.

Great site

Ayr Craigie Gardens Caravan Club Site
This is a great site with great wardens, Mick and Christine are great and really helpful. So glad they are back again next year, great as they are really friendly. Ayr town centre is run down but then again so is every other town centre, what a shame. A lot to do in Ayrshire so not a problem, get out and enjoy.

So Friendly

Ayr Craigie Gardens Caravan Club Site
We had a four night stay in September. We had a great welcome and was reccomended a pitch (the honeymoon suite) which was brilliant as it was so convenient to services with bags of room with seclusion amongst the trees. The Wardens were very helpful and had great customer service skills. We often use this site as it is close to town and we have family in the area, it is just a pity it is not open all year. We will be back
