Really enjoyed an overnight stay here. Easy access and nicely laid out. There's a little children's area and the duck pond etc.

Not gooing to repeat what everyone else has said, I had dinner in the club house and the prices were very reasonable, £5. 50 for a huge plate of macaroni cheese with chips and a lovely salad!

I will definitely be back, hopefully for much longer as it really is a great wee site. £17. 50 for the night which included EHU

The surrounding area has some of the best views in Scotland and Biggar is a historical town that has lots to offer. I stayed at this site for a few days in the caravan. The site is mostly made up of touring caravans that are sited for the season (which houses some of the filthiest caravans and awning that I have ever seen). This leaves little room for short stay guests, then again for £16. 60 a night can I really complain.

There are no hardstanding areas and unfortunately for me it had rained a fair bit before I arrived and continued on my first day. This left the site very boggy and wet, we came back after a few hours out and about to find the power cable lying in water, so had to move it. After the rain the manager did come out to make sure we where ok, very friendly.

The toilets where clean enough but the waste disposal leaves a lot to be desired, unless you remember to take your toilet key (you don't need for the waste cupboard) there is nowhere to wash your hands. We were over the other end of the lake and the it was a fair walk with heavy waste containers.

As mentioned before there are swans and ducks in the pond, the kids all enjoyed out watching and feeding them. The downside is there is lots of poo about including on the paths.

There are no boundaries to pitches, so be prepared for people wandering close by. As I was underneath trees it was difficult to level and to erect an awning. It's the first time I've tried to get pegs into tree roots.

The road into the site is a single track road for part of the way but we never had any problems in or out. There is a good playground on the pitch and you are able to walk from the back of the park alongside the golf course to the town centre. I think that it has the potential to be a great wee site - if the weather is good, but too boggy in the rain.

What a lovely site. Stopped here for a couple of days on our tour of Scotland. Well laid out surrounded by the golf course,

Met by friendly and helpful staff that took us to our pitch overlooking the first green and second tee, other half very happy.

Lovely coffee shop on site that did breakfast, lunch and tea, club house was nice and also did food, not quite sure what time as we only called in for a drink

The pitches are mostly round a lake with lots of ducks and when we were there 2 Swans with 6 signets very cute.

Toilets and showers were adequate and had plenty of hot water extra showers in two portable cabin.

Short walk across golf course on a flat footpath into Biggar with plenty of places to eat and drink and shop with a couple of museums.

We will be back.

Stayed here for our first official outing in our new tourer - had a ball!

The one thing to be prepared for with this site - is that it can be quite muddy and boggy - simply due to its location down in the basin of a glen, on top of a low water table that keeps the nearby pond in good condition.

That observation aside - we had a great time. The site is very small and very peaceful. The toilet, showers, and laundry blocks are all fairly recently installed and very clean.

The site is in peaceful countryside - surrounded by hills and fields, nice pond on the site with ducks and swans, a football pitch enclosed by a high fence, a small childs' playground, a small river weaving past the site, and several nice walks (either short - 500m - into the town; or longer - 4m - to the town of Broughton).

Rather than a huge site with expansive services and facilities, this site is small, peaceful, in the countryside, near a small town, and pleasant enough for a relaxing stay that gives the kids some outdoor fun.

We walked into the town of Biggar one day - very nice; interesting museums; shops; and coffee shops and pubs.

We only travelled 20miles to this site after we purchased our first family tent to see if we liked camping. I have to say the site and trip was a huge success.

It has a decent sized area for tent pitches and we found a nice spot under the shade of a few trees. Our pitch faced a nice little pond which had Ducks and Swans and we were visited a few times a day by the ducklings which my 5 & 7 year old loved. There is also a nice little path that goes right around the pond. My wife and I could relax by the tent whilst our kids spent hours a few meters from us with their fishing nets in the pond and they also liked the play park at the opposite side of the path.

The toilet and shower block was at the opposite side of the pond (it's not a huge pond, just a nice size)and were very well maintained. The shower took a 20p and lasted much longer than we needed and was nice and warm with a good pressure.

The town of Biggar is a short walk and is a very nice little place indeed. The nice little pathway through the golf course that took us there went past a good sized co-op for most of our needs. We were all surprised at how good the towns museums were and spent hours visiting them. The town also had a few takeaways and we enjoyed something from the chippy on one evening.

We will all certainly return here for another few nights and weekends at some point after we have ventured further afield.

Terribly disappointing. We booked 3 nights after reading the positive reviews on here. After arriving, we were pointed in the direction of the non-EHU tent area. This was a small strip of grass bounded by an access road and paths, under some trees, next to both the golf course and an unfenced duck pond. The grass was a bit too long for comfort and we saw three lots of dog mess in our area (there may have been more lurking). Black flies covered the area as well. It took us less than 10 minutes to decide we were better driving on down the road and taking pot luck.

There was no problem being refunded our money, and the park did look nice on the other side of the pond in amongst the caravans. For a family with a toddler in that area though, it was totally unsuitable.
