Dog haven, we had a lovely dry warm week at NEB, the wardens and staff were very friendly and always had time to speak to you, worth a lot these days.

Nice clean showers, laundry room and the usual service points for waste water etc.

Nice clean sandy beach with lots of rock pools to explore, nearby shops in Drummore and A large Morrisons in Stranear.

The prime pitches appear to be on the second row behind the corse bushes near to the reception. Plenty of large pitches behind sand dunes with direct access to the beach.

Very peaceful site outside of the school Hoildays, lots of bird watching in and around the site.

TV reception is poor on some aerials, WIFI is poor unless you have the clubs site WIFI,

The shop has lots of milk and Scottish rolls in their shop, plus local ice cream.

We are a really looking forward to add this site to our next trip.

What a gem of a site. Even though this a a relatively large site, it dosen't feel like you're surrounded by other campers. There are pitches to suit every taste, if your choice be a sea front vista or the seclusion of pitch tucked away in the gorse. We found ourselves at the very end of the site close to the storage area (our choice). A lovely level hardstanding pitch, sheltered from the rather brisk (gale force) wind by gorse bushes, we were adjacent to the dog walking path, which wends it's way down through the gorse to the beach. Not the easiest of surfaces to walk on, so ensure you wear stout footwear.

One thing to note, some pitches are sloping, so pack your chocks if you're in a motorhome. Also beware of the rabbits or more to the point there excavations. A torch is a must when venturing to the facilities after dark.

We only managed to venture out to one local attraction. That being the nearby Logan gardens. There's a nice little tea shop on site and a small plant sale area. Unfortunately we didn't have the time to visit any other local attractions so I can't comment on any others in the area. However, this site is definitely on the tick sheet for a return visit in the future.

We loved this site, it is stuck out on a limb miles from anywhere but that is part of the appeal. The nearest town is Stranraer about 15 miles away and that is a bit of a dump to be honest although there is decent shopping - and you will have to go there to fill up with petrol, we couldn't find another garage anywhere on the peninsula!

The site is divided into several pitching areas by dense gorse bush thickets, and it's alive with rabbits so watch your step and your dogs. Just over some dunes is a lovely crescent-shaped sandy beach great for paddling and exercising the dogs. Toilet blocks are freshly updated by the looks, and spotlessly clean of course as CC sites always are.

The Rhins of Galloway has some nice little villages but it is a backwater, it's mainly farming country, nothing in the way of lochs and mountains. Visit Logan Botanic Garden if that's your thing, also Portpatrick is a pretty little seaside village a short drive from the site. If you want to chill out and just relax in rural Scotland this site is ideal.

What a fabulous site. Our first, but not last visit, to this amazing place. It truly is doggy heaven with wonderful walks both on the shore and along the coastline. Managed to pick enough blackberries on one walk to make half pound of jam back in motorhome! Will be back definitely, but will make sure we have enough provisions (wine!) as nearest supermarket is about 15 miles away. Lovely helpful staff and a clean and well managed site.

We rang to ask if any space and were told of course we have come on over! We arrived and within minutes were checked in and on a pitch.

Most things about this site and been well said before, its location is incredible, the facilities are kept immaculate and the views are, in our opinion, second to none. We couldn't get on the front row this time so opted for the next tier and found the views to be even better.

A trip to the lighthouse is well worth the effort, great exhibition, a climb up the lighthouse and then coffee and cakes in the fabulous cafe.

Stranraer isn't too far away for essentials but the village of Drummore is much closer and has a village stores, post office and hotel / pub.

Not sure that, for us, site get much better than this one.

Wow what a superb location ! This site really ticked all the boxes for us ! It's located right on the beach at New England Bay (we managed to get a sea side pitch too) the site is very large (in size) with lots of secluded areas with well spread out pitches. 2 facilities blocks which were immaculate 1 had disabled, mother & toddler and a laundry. It has a small kids play area and an indoor games room with pool table etc. The wardens were very friendly and the site itself very peaceful (apart from the odd Oyster catcher) the site has some of the best views we had but is quite remote (about 4 miles to the nearest village ! ) We will definitely return as it's a must location when touring this lovely part of Southern Scotland and one of the cheapest Caravan club sites we've stay on !
