 Having visited the site 2 years ago and with the Covid situation we decided to have an extended stay and allow our daughter and her family to spend a week on site.

The staff were extremely helpful with the booking process which changed from one week to the next due to government restrictions. The toilet block is out of use for this season due to Covid and other facilities are limited. The cost was reduced by 5 per night to compensate for this.

There have been some improvements made since our last visit with a new play barn. Still a great site to visit and especially so after being cooped up for months.

Many shops in the local towns remain closed, but there are sufficient facilities available. The most inconvenient issues is the lack of public toilet facilities which remain closed in some locations.

The weather has been a little unkind during our second spell here. Typically the fantastic weather during lockdown has disappeared since being able to get about.

 Had 5 days on this site during the very good summer, which really added to the enjoyment. We were on one of the Dunes pitches which are all hardcore with personal water supply and drainage. The pitches are not equal in size, some are slightly narrower than others, but they are laid out so you get at least a partial sea view.

Facilities are very modern and there is a nice on site bar with a good selection of drinks. Reasonably priced for the area, although I felt the food prices were on the high side.

The location is great, with a huge sandy beach on the doorstep. You can walk along the beach to Sandhead, which has a small shop, tea room and pub. The staff and local people were all very friendly. IT is just a few miles drive to many attractions and larger towns.

 Simply superb location with spotless facilities.

We had pitches facing the dunes, fully serviced with direct access to the Beach, and boy what a beach.

Walk up the beach and then return or the other way to the Tea rooms, the pub and a little shop plus walk further up to see Ostercatchers whizzing around.

 Stayed here overnight while touring the area. Got to be the best site we have been on. Fab location parked at The Dunes part of the site overlooking the beach. Fantastic toilet, shower facilities. Great disposal area. Site was spotless. Will definitely be back. Thanks Chris & Ben Meldrum

 The star of this site is the beach - literally miles of flat clean sand.

The site itself is mainly static vans but don't be put off from bringing your touring van or tent. Facilities are good and there is ongoing investment in the camping field as electric hook up are being added. Apparently next season will include designated pitches to ensure the most efficient use of the electric points. The field is level with some shelter from the surrounding trees and sand dunes but we felt rather exposed with a keen north wind blowing.

Welcome: friendly.

Facilities: modern & clean.

Clubhouse: modern with a good range of pizzas in the evenings. Saturday evening included a live blues band.

No shop on site but there is a decent store in the village - you can walk on the pavement or on the beach.

Wifi: free but very iffy on the camping field. Worked much better if you sat on the tables outside the clubhouse!

Playground: good for smaller children but the bins needed emptying.

We recommend a drive down to the Mull of Galloway for the amazing birds, lighthouse (open at weekends) and sea views. There is also a modern cafe and gift shop which blends in surprisingly well with the natural environment.

 Spent a beautiful weekend here. Newbies so didn't want to venture far. This site was ideal. Toilet and shower block was clean and felt fairly new. A bit dark at night though. Won't hesitate to come back though! May even spend our fortnight holiday here. So relaxing and peaceful. Breathtaking views. Wee site shop would make it even better.

 Was down on the Sands of Luce tale end of the summer last year and had a very peaceful and very enjoyable stay. Was pitched on the newly refurbished Dunes pitches. Lovely and flat with water, EHU and waste all pitch side. Had lovely panoramic shore line views with only a 2 minute walk to the beach and newly refurbished toilet block (to me) that was more than adequate and spotless. Behind the toilet block there was a small on site cafe that did a wonderful breakfast. Was only open at the weekend as it was the tail end of the season. Would imagine is open daily mid-season.

Although Sands of Luce is mainly a large static site you still get that small caravan pitch feeling as its well behind you. The site all over is well manicured and absolutely spotless with Clubhouse. Maybe on the tired side but serves a good pint with a friendly smile from the staff. There was a Games room with clothes washing facilities as you would find in any site this size. Definitely worth a visit but I think mid season could get a bit manic for a couple wishing a quiet break as the on site play areas are behind the pitches. Ideal if you have toddlers as they are in view of your van. Mull of Galloway has lots to offer. I was down at the Portpatrick Folk Festival during my stay. Sandhead village is a nice 20 minute stroll from the site along the shore with a well stocked grocery store and a delightful country hotel with bar and restaurant with some fantastic reviews.

Reviewer: Screwdriver32 2 reviews from this member

 When we stayed here we were shown to an area that was for touring caravans to pitch, but as the only tent we had no complaints, as we explored the site we found the rest of the campers were next to the beach, at first we were a bit peeved at missing the view but as the night got on the winds blew in & we thanked our good luck to be in a sheltered area, The toilet blocks were a good 400 meter walk or more so don't hang on till YOU need to go!

They were clean enough inside but very cold as the windows were all held open, the water in the showers was brilliantly warm & very forceful, We did visit the bar & although everything looks like it fell out the 1970s right down to the guy in the jeans with matching jeans shirt & huge moustache, it was clean & very kid friendly,

If we had any complaint was the small gangs of kids that were staying in the caravans, they loved to push their luck, throwing sticks/stones at the tent, kicking balls at the tent & no they weren't playing in the same area, they would walk past shouting at all times & jumping about heading to a dead end do what they had to & run like hell away. Luckily I have a video camera in my car & at one point I caught one teenager sniffing around the tent trying to see if anyone was init, luckily we had left a radio on as we were at the shower block so he gave up & left but not before taking a bottle of fresh water which is freely available everywhere?

I would go back again but only caravaning, as I thing the tents are vulnerable to the light fingered, can you believe it! it felt safer to rough camp alone than be surrounded by people.

Reviewer: Briandouglashodson 2 reviews from this member

 Six of us, all adult males, stayed there in two tents overnight on 12th August 2013. The tent field overlooked the beach and was immaculately groomed. The two toilet blocks available were dated but very clean with plenty of hot water. Altogether there were four toilets and four showers, quite adequate for the number of people camping. We were made most welcome. There was a children's playground with quite a few climbs and swings etc. The nearest supermarket is 14 miles away in Stranraer although there is a newsagents in one mile away in Sandhead. The site has it's own pub which has last orders at 11. 30pm so the site is quiet from midnight. We will be back next year. This is a great site to use as a centre for sea fishing and/or visiting nearby gardens open to the public. This is generally a quiet site and is good for peace and quiet. The site has it's own cafe which serves a hearty breakfast. We paid 18 per pitch per night with no facilities which we thought not too bad for the time of year.

 The park is right on the most fantastic sandy beach!

If you like the beach you'll love it.

Stranraer and port patrick and short drives away and worth a visit.

We really enjoyed our stay.

We stayed in a static caravan but the camping facilities looked clean and the showers were free and powerful.

We had a picnic on the beach and had the most relaxing time.

The site was quiet and the caravan owners wee friendly. We are a group of female friends, enjoying a relaxing trip to the beach.

Would recommend for families, couples or anyone wanting to explore the coast.
