Good for families

Quiet, clean and a short walk into town ...

We stayed here for 6 nights for the first week in August and the weather was appalling. However I will not consider that in my review as the management can't be blamed for that. The site has tourers and static caravans and appears to cater more for statics. Our pitch was on the far side of the site and it was quite open and barren. Some sites do have hedges to separate them. In the bad weather our hard standing pitch flooded and this came through the groundsheet.  There is a playground on site for kids and our kids enjoyed it. Overall this site was OK but six days was too long. Ayr was OK but not inspiring. Toilets and showers were kept clean and showers were hot and powerful. If you drive from the site to Ayr do not turn right out of the site and use the main road. Turn left and take the first right (signposted Ayr) and this will take you on a beautiful coastal route. We took our 14 year old son and other friends came too. The swimming pool was open 08:30 to 12:30 and 17:00 to 21:00. Kids were not allowed 19:00 to 21:00 and this was fine.The kids loved the pool (although not big) and this was a god send in poor weather. There is a dog walk on site which is fine and useful and the site is well kept throughout. The owners were always smiling and polite but reception seemed to be closed more than it was open. The main beach at Maidens is a five and a half mile drive or there is a nearer one about three and a half miles away. Both very good. We like a local pub and Maybole about a mile away and we looked for a good pub. The best was the Maybole Arms with cheap and cheerful food on offer and very friendly staff and locals. Other pubs seemed to be more for locals. I was not impressed with Maybole itself and it was very average but did have local shops, take aways.  OK for a stopover but use your days better further north.  Hope this has been useful.
