 A very well run park with very friendly staff.

A great site for a relaxing break, and only a pleasant fifteen minute stroll into the centre of the lovely town of Ayr, which has a great variety of shops, restaurants and Great little Pubs.

Not an expensive site, but very pleasant and very well run.

The beautiful Ayr beach is also within reasonable walking distance.

We will definitely return for another break in the future.

 Very welcoming warden. Clear and well organised site. Great facilities.

Superb location - very quiet but close to town centre.

We were visiting relatives and great way to have comfortable accommodation near them.

 Part of visit on Scotland tour

Very nice clean site, friendly informative wardens, close to the college and river, walk to river and along great for dogs and quite interesting, town center just over the river bridge (cannot comment as did not visit)

Ayr sandy beach nice and quiet due to time of year.

Convenient for Troon ferry (10 miles) to Arran, took a day trip a lot to see in one day. (56 miles round with a few detours)

Had a ride out to Largs as it was the Viking weekend difficult parking but worth the effort.

 Site is located close to the Ayr University and is of a standard you should expect of a Caravan & Motorhome Club Site. Pleasant & welcoming site wardens and the flower arrangements around the reception are very attractive. The tarmac at the gate entrance is rutted and uneven, care needed if cycling out.

Good Freeview signal and mobile reception, prepaid site WiFi available. Manic one-way road system around Ayr best avoided if going for a cycle ride. Pick up the local cycle path along the River Ayr and follow this into the town centre.

The NCR 7 crosses New Bridge (A719), turning left takes you to the seafront, right takes you through the port along some very rough roads, once out of the port area things improve.

Reviewer: Dartgirl81 23 reviews from this member

 This is a clean site, the facilities do need updating, but nothing will be done apparently as the lease is due to expire over the next year or so, so I guess they're waiting to see if it's renewed before they spend any money on the place, so fair enough.

As mentioned old showers etc but kept clean. 4 showers in the ladies, and quite a few washrooms. Only queued twice for a shower.

The site backs on to the university which was closed while we were there. About a 15/minute walk along the river into Ayr town centre, which I thought was really run down, and not very clean, lots of litter about. Beach was about a further 15 minute walk further on, lovely beach but the entire area needs some investment.

The site. Is like one giant car park hardly any grass, all tarmac and gravel.

We won't return.

 Excellent site all round. Toilets/washrooms always clean. Unfortunately due to and injury received by one our party, outside of the site, we had to leave early.

The wardens on the site at that time Yvonne @ Lawrence were the nicest people we could have wished to meet and the help they gave to angela (broken leg) and her husband was first class.

They were so helpful, generous of their time, that we plan to meet up with them again next year but under better circumstances.

Reviewer: Bodiddly 29 reviews from this member

 The site is easy to find and easy access, the pitches are large and flat and the site is well screened with trees and shrubs. The walk into Ayr along the river takes about 15 minutes and the beaches are another 10 minutes further on.

There is no dog walk, but the road to the site has large grassy areas and leads to a nice walk down through gardens to the river. The toilets and showers are very clean, but the showers could do with an update, the water flow is very poor and the heat control can be very erratic, there are only 4 and even in April there were queues in the mornings, yet there were 6 privacy cubicles all stood empty, surely they could convert some to showers?

The wardens were friendly and helpful with a good knowledge of the local area. We would certainly go back again due to the location.

Reviewer: NMack 15 reviews from this member

 Never having used this site before we decided this time to take the caravan and picked Craigie as a location for visiting family. We really enjoyed our 4 nights at this lovely site which is deceptively peaceful, being within the town of Ayr.

Toilet block is very clean and the site in general is very well kept. The shop offers a selection of useful items. Water and bins all seem to be well situated and not a trek away. We didn't have a problem with TV reception in the area we pitched, which was not on the outside fence, but across the road.

Ayr itself has a beach, plenty of eating places and a variety of shops, but for something a little different, travel through to Prestwick for unusual shops. Culzean Castle and Burns Cottage are just two of the many options to visit in the surrounding area.

Would highly recommend a visit to Craigie Gardens. We will be back.
