I took the kids camping to Nydie for a couple of nights before the holidays drew to a close, a last minute decision as the weather kept changing every time I looked at the forecast !

I like simplicity and the site does this very well. A you shaped, one way road to access all areas of the site. Toilets, showers and washing up areas all sited together. Charging lockers and washing machines available if required (paid). All were kept very clean with the exception of the male toilets one night after someone decided to throw up all over one cubicle some time in the early hours. Nothing the owners can do about that, but it should be said it was quickly cleaned up the following morning when they were made aware. I don't really know how the owners do it at all with some of the clientele they get, always the part I hate most about campsites. Within 5 mins of being on site, some boy armed with a NERF gun, walked up to our dog and shot it at point blank range ! Not quite the welcome we were expecting and again, nothing the owners can do, short of 'frisking' all guests for firearms lol. Luckily I'm not reviewing our 'neighbours', although the kids could now describe them with a few new 'adjectives' they have no doubt acquired during our stay! Shame really as everyone else around us was very nice. The 11pm noise curfew seemed to be adhered to reasonably well, always a few exceptions who think only of themselves, but a lot quieter than many sites I've stayed on.

The site is located about a mile from Strathkiness (tiny village with a pub) and about 5 miles (15mins by car) to St Andrews and all it's amenities. Great views can be had over the Eden estuary. There is a small shop on site selling crisps/sweets/juice etc, You can also buy logs and hire a fire pit if you wish.

The kids had great fun playing in the park and particularly on the football field with, according to the wee man, 'proper goals' !

One final thing to be aware of, the site is quite exposed and if it is windy you will have 'fun' putting up your tent, if you succeed you will then have more fun watching many others fairing not quite as well ! Funnily enough, not much the owners can do about that either !

In summary, great little site, good location and has everything you need. Or if your needs are greater, 15mins down the road will sort you out.

I would happily go back and would have no problems recommending Nydie to friends and family and I guess that speaks volumes about the campsite. Just unfortunate that sadly they can't guarantee the quality of the weather or the guests.

Great site, very relaxing time. The views are nice here. Just my wife and myself but the site is very safe for children. There is a small shop on site where you can also hire a fire pit and purchase logs. We would recommend and return.

I stay at this site several times a year, and as always, I've had a great time. The views are great and the pitches are very generous, the toilets and wash-up area are good. Small football pitch which both young and old enjoy and there is a play area for kids ( I love to see the kids playing outdoors in the summer ) fire pits are allowed and can be hired for a few quid, so when you're all played out you can sit and enjoy the camp fire in the evening. The owners are simply great, so friendly and helpful

Stayed last weekend and experienced a power cut on both nights. Having paid for an electric pitch, this was very annoying. The power cut also made it very difficult to go to the toilet too as there wasn't even any emergency lighting in the toilet blocks. I know it wasn't the fault of the campsite, but it spoiled the enjoyment of staying there and it would have been a nice gesture if we had been offered some money back. There doesn't seem to be any enforcement on the 'strict no noise after 11pm' as we had a group of men opposite us in a woodwam who were out till after 12am on both nights singing and playing a guitar. Some of the washing up sinks didn't have any plugs in them which made it difficult to wash dishes when you were also having to hold down the push button tap and the toilet blocks were very dated and cramped? All in all, not a campsite I would go back to

The pitches were huge and the views were amazing.

We were running a bit later from the ETA given, however this was no problem at all. On arrival, we were asked to ring the bell, however our pitch number was written on a board so that we could just make our way in.

Advice was given by the owner as to where to go for eating late and at short notice. Spot on too!

The shower block (can only speak for ladies) was ok. A bit of a tight squeeze at 'rush hour' but has everything you need. The showers are push button. Not uncommon, however the stop seemed to come a bit too quickly after the start! Warm water with good pressure.

The washing up area was inside a large 'shed' so good if the weather takes a turn for the worse! Plenty of sinks to use, as well as access to the washing machines and the charging units if booked.

Great location. We went to surprise a family member who has just opened Mayfield Farm, a cafe/restaurant in the hills just the other side of Cupar. Well worth a visit! Also very handy for St Andrews, Cupar and surrounding areas including the forest and beach.

Unfortunately the hotel accommodation a stone's throw from the site had a party (wedding reception?) on the Saturday night we were there. This was BY NO MEANS the fault of the site, but the noise could be heard by all. I have not let this affect my rating.

Stayed here for 2 nights last weekend with another 2 families on pitches with electric hook up. We had hoped to be pitched next to each other but left it too late to ask. This wasn't a problem as the owner Sue allowed us to pitch our 3 tents on the 2 side by side pitches whilst parking our 3 cars on the 3rd pitch. Suited us perfectly as the pitches are huge, more than enough room for what we needed.

Great wee site, basically just a big sloped field with electric hook up pitches, basic pitches and super pitches at the top of the hill with fixed windbreaks. Just a stone's throw from our pitch was a small row of swings and a chute for the kids with a large football pitch nearby-we never saw our 5 kids (age range 2-12) for the whole weekend, except for food and sleep! Who'd have thought they'd have so much fun with just the basics but they made lots of friends in the process. And an ice cream can turns up on site each night! What more could a kid want?!

Toilet block clean, inside dish washing area and a small kiosk shed for check in and provisions were adequate for our needs.

St Andrews only 5 miles away so ideal location for here and Perth or Dundee if you were staying longer and wanted to venture further afield.

Overall a great wee gem of a site, will definitely return, we even had lovely sunshine along with some strong winds.
