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.

Excellent site

Stayed here for one night on 3/6 2021. Site is handy for the centre of Ayr. Used the satnav which took us into the university so need to be careful. Nice and handy for the centre of Ayr and supermarkets.

One of our favourite club sites

We visit this site at least once a year. It’s definitely one of our favourites. The site location is great for easy access to the town, beach, supermarkets, country parks. It is well maintained and the facilities are spotless. Dog walks just off site are excellent and it’s an easy walk into the town and the beach. There are plenty supermarkets within a short drive. We can also recommend Marcos fish and chip shop and you can sit and eat them in nearby Wellington Square weather permitting! One beach worth visiting as well as Ayr beach itself is Irvine beach. Both have plenty free parking and are dog friendly. Country parks within an easy drive are Roselle, Eglington and Dean country park. Great for a casual walk especially if you have dogs.

Excellently Managed by a dream team

I am presently staying at the Ayr site and can recommend any member try it for a lovely peaceful and relaxed stay. We unfortunately arrived early 12.03 pm but the warden remarked, I think this could be your first outing since Covid. He was right, and he added you haven’t read your sites directory. He was right again as we were used to the 12.00 rule. No problem he said, as he had just returned from toilet cleaning he needed a break. He let us in a bit earlier and the whole stay was a delight with all four staff being welcoming, informative and having a great sense of humour. We felt this was a dream team as not only were they very member friendly but also the site is immaculate, well managed and toilet block spotless with double cleaning periods every day ensuring low risk to Covid. We will return and enjoy meeting them again and what a recommendation for the club with people like this giving us such personal service.

Great site and location for visiting Ayr and the surrounding area.

We were looking for a site within walking distance of a town, village, or pubs and found Craigie Gardens. We could only stay for one or two nights due to work commitments so gave the site a call and they were very helpful and positive in accepting our booking. When we arrived Mick and Christine could not have been more welcoming, helpful and informative which is just what you want when checking onto a site you have never been to before. The site was nicely set out, immaculate and in a good location for walking into Ayr. We got ourselves set up on a great pitch and Mick and Christine were always on hand to answer any questions we had. It was a great stay with terrific hosts and can't wait to stay there again. Many many thanks to Mick and Christine.

Excellent site location with riverside walk into town and seafront. Further woodland walks in opposite direction from site. Nicely set out site though facilities block could do with an update. Lovely, welcoming wardens.
