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.

Flooded pitch “it’s the Scottish weather” so the staff informed me...

Pitch flooded - 1/2 foot underwater. Staff just said it’s the Scottish weather! 2 toilets open for the whole site and if you like an early wake up call every morning from the seagulls then it’s perfect for you. Other than that the site is clean and plots good size. Well maintained. Staff but sharp at times.

Fabulous site

We have stayed on a few club sites now and this one is by far the best. It is so peaceful, easy to relax and the cleanliness is spot on. We found all 4 wardens very friendly and they went out of their way to help when ever needed. The whole feeling of being part of a happy, safe and friendly club Site has made us all as a family Not want to come home!! We will definitely be back one day soon. Thank you to all the wardens, Joe, Sarah, Jo and Craig. 👍🏕☀️🌧

Poor facilities

On arrival to the site we were greeted with rather snappy wardens who appeared quite harassed and seems to project that onto the customer. We were disappointed the play park was not open, as public parks are open it seems rather strange they can not open their play area. When I asked about it I was told they didn't have time to clean it every 2 hours!! The facilities were very clean but the water pressure in the showers were terrible, I struggled to rinse the shampoo from my hair. Obviously things are difficult with the current situation but given the size of the toilet block I think a better system needs to be in place with regards to the toilets and showers. I waited in line for over half an hour for a showers then hadn't been in for more than 10 minutes when the warden shouted in to hurry up as they needed to close for cleaning. The poor water pressure results in people taking longer causing long waits for showers and toilets. The site was nice and tidy but I'm afraid for a caravan club site it wasn't great and I don't think we would come back.

Excellent site close to Town Centre

The site is excellent with good facilities being maintained as best they can under the Covid restrictions. Also within walking distance of Ayr Race Course and travelling distance of everything related to Rabbie Burns.

Top notch site in good parkland location

Excellent site located in beautiful parkland and within easy walking distance of the town. We arrived to be told that the shower block and facilities were out of order and they remained so throughout our stay but full Club site prices still applied. Plenty of visitor attractions within the area although Covid-19 restrictions denied us access to many. Well worth a stay here
