Homeward bound

Ayr Craigie Gardens Club Campsite
I honestly don’t think I can say much that’s not already been said. Terry and Stewart are doing there best to make the site a really nice place. They’ve moved the rubbish bins to one central place which I think is a good idea, and put flowers into where the bins used to be. The town is a run down place, we think it’s got worse over the past few years. But the campsite is in our opinion beautiful and peaceful.

First Time Here

Ayr Craigie Gardens Club Campsite
This is the first time we have been here booked for two nights. No information was given when we booked in at reception. I picked a leaflet up of a table. The site is behind the university. Was not straight forward to find maybe some better signage? The toilet block needs a big upgrade. out of the four showers only two had a seat. The water from the showers sprayed out under the door and made the corridor very wet. If you were a little unsteady this could be off putting. Showers etc were clean, at one time you could see they had a shower curtain which is no longer there. Ayr itself is very run down I felt you had to be aware of where you were walking I would not have walked on my own. We did find the staff not as friendly as other sites we have stopped on. This is one site we will not be returning too.

Basic but well maintained grounds and good locatio

Ayr Craigie Gardens Club Campsite

Craigie Gardens is situated in well maintained grounds, is a 10-minute walk into the town and there is a pleasant riverside walk nearby. Facilities block was clean but extremely dated and closed at an inconvenient time (10:30-12noon). With some vision, modernisation, a little more hospitality and the addition of fully serviced pitches, it wouldn't take much to transform this from an average to excellent site.

Enjoyable stay

Ayr Craigie Gardens Club Campsite
We stayed on this site for 5 nights from May 22nd 2024. We were made very welcome by Kate when we arrived who gave us lots of excellent local information. The site was very clean and tidy and well organised and John was always out on site and friendly and smiling despite the pouring rain. The facilities were always very clean and tidy but agree with previous comments that they could do with a refurb. There is plenty to do in the area, Culzean Castle is a must. Nice walks from the site and Ayr is an easy walk in, Morrisons nearby for fuel and groceries. Pitches are well maintained as is the site in general. No problems with electricity on May 22nd as in previous comments. Overall pleasant stay on this excellent site with very friendly staff. We will be back on our next trip to Scotland M & L

Nice Site 10 minutes walk from town.

Ayr Craigie Gardens Club Campsite
Had a 3 night stay at Craigie gardens, site is a good size with decent sized pitches and is well maintianed by the very friendly staff, as others have commented the toilet block is looking a bit dated but it was clean with hot showers with good water pressure, town is around a 10 minute walk if you cut through the university campus but sadly Ayr like a lot of small coastal towns has suffered years of neglect and is not what it used to be, very sad as all the people we spoke to we so friendly and welcoming, ate out at The Bistro on Sandgate and it was excellent and very busy even on a Sunday evening, well worth a try if you're staying at the site.
