What a wonderful site. 4 separate fields although one is reserved for caravan club members. We were very fortunate to be able to pitch on the bottom field which is quite level.

The only quibble we had was the toilet block is quite dated but everything works.

Tom has installed sky dishes on the pitches and gives you a loan of a sky box. All you need to take is your viewing card and you have your own sky channels.

Largs is only a few minutes drive away. There's a morrisons supermarket tucked away behind the station, usual seaside town but without masses of amusements. McCabes pub at the side of the station does decent food and kids eat for a quid.

We'll definitely be back here. Glorious working farm site with loads of horses. Excellent views and Tom and Mary are the best hosts I've ever met.

Don't go here. I want it all to myself lol

Wonderful place location beautiful set on a rural working farm not too far from the sea, Tom the owner is a really helpful fella.

We booked for a week but left early as the weather got the better of us. If you have a satellite receiver just bring it along as tom has dishes and coax points at every pitch.

Toilets or should I say toilet is immaculate the shower is adequate.

My only criticism is that they really do need more than one shower and one toilet for the 3 camping fields they have. Would definitely go back

Its a good old fashioned site with its own character and charm

Spent 3 nights whilst visiting relative in Largs, situation was perfect as were facilities provided. We were offerd use of digi box if we required tv. On the third night whilst being driven back to site by relative we hit a flood and ended up stranded with swamped car. Phoned Tom to let him know we could not get back to our motorhome due to the weather etc and some 20 minutes later a knight in shining armour appeared through the torrential rain with his tractor and pulled the mother in laws car and us out of the flood area, back to safety at the farm, and we could spend the night in the warmth and comfort of our motorhome. This was totally above and beyond the call of duty. Tom you are a hero and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We will return without a doubt.

Site owner very friendly and accommodating. We were only going to stay one night but finished up staying two. It rained heavily on second night and I was a bit concerned about getting out of the field as its a fairly steep hill through the gate, but there was no problem as some grips have been laid. Reasonable fees for facilities. Satellite connection available - just plug into your sky box. Largs is close by but if you have a large motorhome parking could be a problem as the car parks don't allow them. Only downside was the midges. Would recommend.

Spent two nights here as we are venturing further North on a gradual basis.

We stayed in the Caravan Club part, there are 2 other camping areas that had tents and caravans/motorhomes.

Nice scenery, excellent dog walk down a private road.

The shower needs to be left for a minute or two to regulate, then it is great but if you get in before it switches from very hot to very cold.

Apparently the site owner lends or rents digiboxes - we found out on our last night, so no reception on our freeview which I found great but hubby was not too pleased.

Largs is a great seaside town, has all of the amenities but is not over commercialised, there are restaurants and pubs and only a couple of amusement arcades, nice seafront walk which is dog friendly.

I would recommend this site for people wanting to get away from it all and take in good sites and a relaxing resort, really enjoyed it and will definitely return.

Reviewer: Bigh@No4 1 review from this member

Just spent 5 lovely days on this quiet site set in the glen about 2 miles from the seafront at Largs.

The owner said that the hard standings were level but they are not, they don't slope too much but it does make levelling your van difficult without levellers. Now, having said that, this was the only disappointment.

The owner, Tom, was the friendliest man you could wish to meet, nothing was a hassle to him and he would go out of his way to help you.

There is only 1 toilet and 1 shower (50p token from farmhouse) but it wasn't a problem. There is ample hot running water for washing up and for washing clothes. Ablutions area kept spotlessly clean.

With a caravan you have the advantage of being able to drive into Largs for meals or whatever but with a motorhome it is a bit of a bind packing everything away so didn't do that very often.

It won't suit everybody but I would recommend it.

Take your freesat box with you as the owner has recently fitted sky dishes. Fantastic !

All this for 12.50 a night inc hook up.
