Well-kept hardstanding pitches

General

  • Peaceful rural site on 40 acres of farm and woods a mile from Catrine
  • Half an hour's drive from the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Ayr
  • Wildlife walks, pony rides and Ayr river fishing on site

A serene spot with rural views all around, ripe for hours of nature walks and fishing, but with the added bonus of easy access directly off the A76 – what a winning combo.

There are woods and fields all around at Catrine House, a 40-acre rural site on the banks of the Ayr river. Hens and cows reside on the family-run farm, and there’s plenty of space for kids and dogs (or released-from-the-office grownups) to run about and let off steam among the woods and open spaces.

The Ayr river runs through the farm’s grounds, so bring your kit for a bit of fishing, or enlist some expert help from the owners if you need a little tuition in the skills. The friendly folks on site can also organise wildlife-spotting walks and pony rides around the estate for an extra charge.

The vibe here may be decidedly rural, but you’re hardly cut off in the middle of nowhere: there’s an excellent café a mile away in Catrine, and a couple of food pubs within a few minutes’ drive. If you can’t be enticed away from your countryside idyll you’re welcome to light up a barbie, or have dinner delivered to the site from the local Chinese takeaway.

  • Liked: 

    Quiet site, although there is some noise from the road nearby (but it’s a steady hum so easily ignored). Lovely big lodge where the loos and showers are, and the facilities were spotless (but a shame other users couldn’t clean up after themselves). Lovely walk along the river.

    Disliked: 

    It’s also used as a storage facility for caravans and some of them looked very neglected, I’m sure the walled area is much nicer in Spring and Summer when the caravans have been moved. No sign on the main road - a great way to keep this site a secret, but a nightmare to find on a dark night.

    This place is a little hidden gem. We stayed right next to the hut with the showers and toilets. They had a log burner that we could use which was so cosy. There is a walk you can do an see some old carved drawings in the sandstone.

Lovely spot that needs a little attention and a road closure22/09/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomRoland B.Confirmed

  • Fully-serviced hardstanding and grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    It's a beautiful spot with fantastic surrounding countryside. The riverside pitches are stunning and feel like wild camping with access to a toilet.
    The owners are very friendly and it was peaceful even on a bank holiday weekend. The kids enjoyed the disused cafe for indoor play (It's big enough to run around). Toilets and showers are clean and entirely sufficient in my view.

    Disliked: 

    The main irritation was the constant traffic nearby which was particularly noticeable in the open area where we camped. It's better in the courtyard area or at the riverside pitches.
    Everything was a little dated and quirky. If you want electricity make sure you have a reasonably long cable. Motorhome facilities are basic

Local attractions

Rabbie Burns fans will do well around this area: it’ll take you around half an hour to get to Ayr to visit the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum and the poet’s childhood home, now known as Burns Cottage. The 15th-century Brig o’ Doon (the setting for Tam o' Shanter) is a short trot from these attractions, and you can finish your day following in Burns’ footsteps with a pint at Poosie Nansies Inn, a couple of miles from the site.

Ayr’s also a great place for a seaside walk or beach paddle; for more activity, there’s a riding centre 20 minutes’ drive from Catrine House and a golf course just a couple of minutes away. Horsey types may well also want to drop in on the gentle giants at Blackstone Clydesdales, 10 minutes away.

For a slice of history, take a 20-minute ramble to the rock art site at Ballochmyle, or drive for 10 minutes to the 2,000-acre estate of Dumfries House, home to some gorgeous gardens and a splendid Chippendale collection.

Must see

  • Burns National Heritage Park (12.5 miles)
  • Scottish Maritime Museum (15.3 miles)
  • Culzean Castle & Country Park (20.0 miles)
