Arrived on a busy weekend, it was very wet so we couldn't pitch on the grass. I had called ahead to ask for a pitch. We were shown to a level area in the car park at the back but told there was no hook up. There appeared to be hook up in the upper hard standing area but it wasn't offered. We were still charged full price, which I didn't mind too much but I paid for 3 nights ahead. The lady was very pleasant but seemed a little flustered. After a couple of hours sitting in our van in torrential rain we decided to go into Largs, where we found somewhere better to pitch up. The facilities at this site are very dated - one toilet and shower inside a building and a decidedly ropey looking portacabin, which we didn't venture in so can't say what it was like. It just reminded me a bit of what campsites used to be like in the 70's/80's. Everything worked but was just a tad rough around the edges.

We tried to book two nights at the CL but were told it was full but we were offered a hardstanding in an adjacent field which we accepted. The site was easy enough to find and we were surprised to see four areas, one of which was the CL, with caravans/motorhomes some of which looked as if they were long stays. We were directed to the field beside the CL and opposite the farmhouse. The entrance was a bit steep but we got in OK. The 'hardstanding' turned out to be a large car park at the bottom of a field which not only sloped N/S but E/W so we could not get level and did not want to use the planks of wood, complete with nails, which were available and would be OK for caravans. There was one motorhome and one caravan that appeared to be occupied and two other caravans and a boat that appeared to have been there for some time. There were several EHUs and water taps. We could not get a TV signal although next to the CL which is stated to have good TV reception! We were adjacent to the road with a bit of traffic noise There was a toilet and shower across the road adjacent to the farmhouse which we did not use as it did not look inviting. I did use the chemical disposal which was the worst and dirtiest I have ever used.

We were tired and decided to stay the night, which was not a very pleasant experience, and left a day early. We paid 16. 00 for the one night.

Very easy to find and easy access to Largs. Warm welcome on arrival. Toilet area adequate, cannot comment on the shower as we always use the caravan shower.

Access into site could be smoother so just take your time, road is quiet so it's not a problem

It's all hard standing, which is not our preference as would always opt for grass pitch. I do understand though it's probably better for motorhomes. However I do think it would benefit from a tarmac path at some point leading to the water and recycling

Good value for money and very peaceful site despite being near a road( which is not busy)

Would recommend pitch 4.

Series of sloping fields in a very peaceful setting with pleasant views close to the Ayrshire coast. Largs and Wemyys Bay are recommended especially the Italian Ice cream parlour in the former.

Owner was welcoming and helpful. Stayed in wet weather and field quickly got quite muddy. Toilet showers and washing up in portacabin affair which was in poor condition

This is a message for Tom and Mary. We came to stay at your site in August for a weekend break with our children. We would just like to say that the campsite was fantastic with stunning views. The campsite was sufficiently adequate with the toilet and shower facilities a lot more than you would have if you were out camping in the fields. It was an absolute blessing to be allowed a campfire as along as it was safe as this kept the midges away at night. We will definagtely be returning again and would recommend to other poeple for the sites and hospitality of Tom and Mary. On leaving we were given a card from Tom which detailed activities available and would recommend phoning before a visit to check information about these.

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
