We arrived at Nydie late afternoon and were shown to a double pitch which easily fitted 2 trailer tents and 2 cars. Another pitch was using the electric hook-up, but the owner brought a splitter before we even had the trailer tent opened!. Nydie is set on a hill and is quite open to the elements - it was fairly windy and although they have permanent wind-breaks set up it was really blowy - no midges however which is a huge plus! They didn't take cards when we were there - waiting for the machine to arrive this week, they happily waited for us to get the cash to them and in fact only paid as we left - thank you!

One criticism - our pitch was right at the dish-washing & toilet blocks and was very noisy in the evening with kids filling water bombs and chasing each other and people coming and going from the toilet blocks.

We would definitely go back, however would request a different pitch!

Fantastic campsite with stunning views. In great location. Can be a bit noisy at night and the site is a bit exposed to the wind. However facilities are kept lovely and clean. The owners could not be more helpful! Would recommend visiting West sands beach and Kinshaldy beach near RAF Leuchars is an absolute must. Definitely would come to this site and area again. Falklands Palace and Kellie Castle are worth a visit

Just returned from our 6th visit with a group consisting of family and friends of varying ages, kids are 6-16 years who all loved this campsite. Plenty of space for football, rounders, tig, cricket, tennis and a small play park. Facilities kept very clean and small shop available for basic provisions. Owners very friendly and accommodating. Two miles outside St Andrews with the most beautiful views over St Andrews bay. This campsite is a must for any camper looking to stay in north east Fife.

Have just returned from yet another amazing weekend. We stayed in a Woodwam which was cosy, and spacious and had everything we needed. Was in a fab area close to toilets and showers. It was clean and well looked after. We travelled with friends, some were camping. We had kids of all ages with us. Games of football, rounders and cricket played in the spacious fields and lots of people joined in. There is also a playground for the younger ones. Had a fab time. Would recommend this site to anyone going either couples, families on even on your own. Will definitely be back thanks again:) x

Well this was my first camping trip and could not have picked a better place to go. Amazing. The site was spotless thanks to Sue and her family constantly keeping it clean. Showers and toilets checked and also kept clean all the time. Very family friendly. Was lovely watching a large group who were staying playing rounders and football. Kids and parents were having a fab time and lovely to see. Some people I noticed have commented about noise. I have to praise the owner for ensuring parents stick to rules in keeping kids and adults in toe not that I think it was needed this weekend as all I seen was families having lots of fun. Playpark was lovely for young ones. Football pitch and large area for all kids to run around and have lots of fun. Not far from St Andrews. Chip shop deliveries were excellent. I was here weekend 25th/26th/27th and cant wait to come again. Very very family friendly, and will be definitely recommending Nydie to everybody. Well done to the owner and your family.

We stayed through the week during what was gloriously warm weather, and then the following week during Fog, Thunderstorms and rain.

We have 5 kids and this is the third (&fourth) time we've been camping here and they love it. The owners are very relaxed and welcoming and keen to help. We had a good chat to Sues Dad (good bloke!) while she was driving her Ferarri (a grasscutter not a sports car) about the field.

The pitch layout has improved, and there's a one way system, which makes it easier entering and leaving the site, although some people seem to forget what 'one way' and an arrow pointing means and head out past the reception.

The toilet shower block is kept clean, and the only time the showers were cold were after a thunderstorm which I'm guessing knocked something out of sync, but once I'd let the owners know they set about sorting it straight away.

The kids just love the play area, either the swings or playing football or just running around the HUGE field they have, they never came up to us and said they were bored, and this is 5 kids who are usually glued to an XboX. Most of the pitches can see the play area, although the Wigwams and some of the EHU pitches can't so it's worth making sure you ask for a pitch facing the play area if you want to keep an eye on your little darlings (or not as the case maybe).

St Andrews is close enough, with supermarkets etc for what you need, the site has a small shop, but other than for some cold drinks, I have to confess we didn't really use it.

There's the usual touristy things to do in St Andrews, Craigton Country Park is well worth a visit if the weathers reasonable, Cairnie Fruit Farm was better than expected, and if the weather's really bad, like week 2 for us Dundee is not too far away for bigger shops and cinemas.

Kids can get to play quite late, there's no curfew on the play area, so bear this is mind if you've young kids and you want them down early, generally the noise is reasonable, as the play area is next to the owners house.

We'll definitely be back next year. Hope the weathers as good as week one.
