 The site is well run and the manager very helpful and welcoming. It is on the edge of the village and an easy walk to the shore, harbour and beach area.

Although early in the year, the touring section was full, we got the last pitch as there was a CCC rally from Renfrewshire. They were very quiet, there was no problem with the resources of toilets, showers, dishwashing area etc. There were immaculate.

Only observation were showers were metered 20p pieces, which doe prevent waste and encourage people to use their own facilities.

All touring area is fully serviced pitches, the4 is a small camping area.

The site was otherwise quiet on a gorgeous weekend of sunny weather.

We would have no hesitation returning and have recommended it already to a friend with a caravan who likes fully services pitches.

 This site suited us very well when nearby Culzean C&CC site (90 pitches) was full (or so the sign said).

For £22 (including the dog) we got a flat concrete hardstand on a serviced pitch, plenty of mown grass separating us from the next pitch. And a very warm welcome at Reception. The toilet block was spotlessly clean, and warm with underfloor heating. You need 20p coins for the shower - a 'man shower' took 40p. For walking the dog, you go downhill through the site and reach the huge grassy area behind Maidens beach.

Plenty to do locally - a day in Culzean country park (if you're not Trust members, walk in free from the beach at the south end, on the Ayrshire Coastal Path which runs from Stranraer to the West Highland Way). Take a wee boat over to Ailsa Craig from Girvan to see the gannets & puffins. Get up early and go as foot passemgers on the big boat from Ardrossan over to Arran. Day trip down to Portpatrick, Castle Kennedy & the Mull of Galloway. Stroll around Maidens harbour or tiny Dunure harbour. Visit the Whisky Experience in neaby Kirkoswald. Dumfries House (restored with help from Prince Charles) is free to walk in the extensive grounds. Plenty of golf courses, not just expensive Trump Turnberry nearby (costs nothing to look around the golf shop). Try Brunstone Castle course, inland from Girvan. Lots of walking too - maybe park by Hadyard Hill wind farm and take a walk among the turbines.

As for the road noise, it stops completely at night, and it didn't stop us - and many others on the site - from sitting out in the sun. There is a tall hedge which screens views of the traffic. We'd come back.

 This spotlessly clean dog (extra charge) friendly site has a small area for tourers & tents behind the reception building. The majority of the site is taken up by static caravans.

Each touring pitch is hard standing with its own EHU, water supply & drainage, with enough grassed area for an awning(extra charge). However if you use an awning car parking space becomes very minimal.

Behind reception is the shower (extra charge) block & toilets, chemical disposal point & a laundry room (extra charge).

There is a bus stop directly outside the site which is on a fairly busy road, so traffic noise starting before 6am was an issue.

The village of Maidens is very small having one shop which was the newsagent/post office/general store/cafe, But it was open from very early morning till late evening. There was also a hotel/restaurant & a petrol station. Once you had walked along the beach (5mins walk from site) & around the harbour you had seen it all.

The surrounding area was very picturesque, but very little to see or do.

All in all a nice site in a nice area, but one I will not be revisiting.

 Stayed at Redgates for four nights in June. Lovely warm welcome from Alison and John who could not do enough for us. Bless you both for all your care and attention. Showers and toilets were amazing and spotless. Weather was fabulous and Maidens is such a pretty little village with a smashing wee shop/café. Hats off to Peter the shop owner who will willingly get anything for you. We will definitely be back.

 Well laid out site immaculately looked after by the workers

Toilets kept to a high standard TV reception not that good when it rained but the sun shone most of the time over the weekend we visited

Great wee shop at the bottom of the site in the Maidens Village also the Wildings Hotel and Restaurant is worth a visit great value

Mr Trump is doing great work at near by Turnberry

South Ayrshire will be the place to visit again soon

Only bad point was paying for showers the hassle looking for 20p pieces and wondering if you run out before water ends

But a great weekend and getting early Ayrshire tatties for my dinner what more could a man ask for

 Stayed two nights camping, the tent pitches are positioned next to the amenity block and are on a level grass area these are serviced pitches for up to eight tents, the only negative being that the main road noise can be a nuisance other than that I found the park first class. Amenity block consisting of separate sex showers/toilets sleuce room and laundry room with washing machines/dryers and double sink for dishes etc, is heated and spotlessly clean, showers are charged starting at 40p for four minutes were hot powerful and well worth the charge, toilets have ample wash hand basins and toilet cubicles and hand driers so no queuing. During our visit everyone respected no noise after 10-30sh were friendly and seemed to be having a great stay. We couldn't have had a friendlier welcome from the reception staff who obviously take great pride in their holiday park and boy it does it show-the site is spotless. Redgates is ideally sited to explore the west coast, if you are planning a visit to the area I would not hesitate to recommend a stay at Redgates Holiday Park.

 Booked two pitches in August 2015 and Jo problem getting two together. On arrival the lady in reception was really helpful and a bubbly character. We were able to choose the pitches which suited us best and as we both had twin axle caravans we chose two in the middle of the site. The ones around the edge of the touring area looked a bit smaller but we could probably still have fitted an 8m caravan on them. All are hard standing concrete base wide enough for your caravan and bordered by grass. Make sure if you're putting up a awning you park as close to the grass as possible so you can get the awning pegs into the grass.

The site is across the road from the beach the touring area is about a 10 - 15 minute walk through the statics to get to it.

There is no dedicated dog walk are on site but they're welcome on the beach.

Nothing to do with the site but we were under the impression that the Ayrshire coastal path was close by or actually ran through the site. In reality the Ayrshire coastal path (if it exists!) is poorly signposted and not really what we've seen on other coastal routes. The odd sign appeared here and there but certainly not able to follow any obvious route. According to the web in uses minor roads tracks and pavements if you can find them.

We tried a couple of other walk in the area that we found on the web such as one starting around the Holloybush Inn in the village of Hollybush but again no signage made it impossible to follow. Print off any directions for your walks in this area before you go! Unfortunately we only had the I pad and no print facilities.

Culzean Castle was worth a visit as was Glentrool in Galloway forest park. Which does have signed routes!,

Only negative about the site is 40p for the shower although reception always had some 20ps and the road noise. Take ear plugs.

Reviewer: Oscar the motorhome 2 reviews from this member

 We had a lovely overnight stay. The toilets and showers were immaculate and excellent laundry and dishwashing facilities. It's position is ideal for walking into village, harbour and Culzean Castle and grounds. The wardens were very welcoming and helpful. Children's playpark is amazing with activities for all ages. Maidens has a lovely beach and is only 1 mile from Turnberry for golfers. Village has a lovely wee shop with cafe also good fish restaurant. Only negative is road noise from main road but not a particularly busy road. This would not stop me returning next year.
