General

  • Family park with view over St Andrews and St Andrews Links
  • Less than four miles from the coast
  • Campfires allowed and firepits for hire

Golf widows and widowers unite. If your lesser half insists on St Andrews for this year’s holiday so they can tee off all trip, insist in turn on carting them to nearby Nydie Caravan and Camping Site.

The prospect of splendid sunsets and sumptuous views should be highly persuasive, and if they’re still in doubt, point out that St Andrews Links is viewable from the site so you can look lovingly in their general direction even if they're out teeing off. (Then, of course, trot along to the village tavern in Strathkinness a short stroll away or to Dundee six miles away for some shopping. Result.)

Nydie has ace views over St Andrews town and St Andrews Bay too – seriously, bring the camera – and there are three and a half acres of this family-run and family-friendly site to explore, including a huge field with goalposts for kids to muck about in (there’s a small play area too, and a couple of playgrounds just along the road in Strathkinness).

A well-stocked shop and the launderette cover the basics, and the amenities including heated shower blocks and a family shower with disabled access are kept to spotless standards by the dedicated team. Campfires are allowed and a range of firepits are available to hire for your stay: this site will surely suit the hole family down to a tee…

    Beautiful setting.

    Disliked: 

    Facilities limited and too far from most tents. Too many unnecessary emails from the site prior to arrival and “nagging” notices around the site. No locks on Male showers.

From the manager...

Thank you for pointing out about the locks. We are away to get new doors soon and will make sure everything is in working order
Due too many years of experience in this industry, every email and notice is very necessary as experience has shown

    Big pitches with plenty of space between and room for your car. Out in the country with good views.
    Great to see all the kids enjoying themselves.
    Ladies toilets and showers very good.

    Disliked: 

    Gents toilets could have done with a bit of bleach around urinals.

From the manager...

Thank you for your comments and I'll pass on the comment about the urinals, however we are unable to use bleach as we are on a septic tank but will look to changing our products.

    Camp is well maintained. As you would expect, families trying to have family time on a camp site.

    Disliked: 

    4 people, smack dab right in the middle, intent on getting wasted and swearing loudly, even though they were surrounded by children. Swearing in front of children shows no respect for anyone. Not controlling their dog, calling it to heal every 2 minutes. Streaking naked across the camp site. If my son had seen this I would have called the police.

    Campers need to respect the rights of other campers to enjoy themselves. This is a family camp site, not a festival pitch up. The owners received a fair amount of abuse when they tried to get them to calm down and respect the fact that they were surrounded by children. Not the owners fault, but a patrol of the camp site earlier in the evening would have revealed that this situation was going on and inevitably was only going to get worse.

    A horrible camping experience and we had to work really hard to ensure our child wasn't getting upset by them and all the shouting and barking that was going on.

Im pleased you were happy with everything on site in our control, unfortunately the loud music was from the farm next-door and this was reported and dealt with via the police and fife council.

Local attractions

Come rain or shine, there’s a veritable host of things to do around St Andrews, with the added bonus for golf widow/ers of feeling smug on soggy days when no golf is possible. (You’ll probably have to go to the British Golf Museum instead, but trade that for a day’s shopping.)

St Andrews is well worth a potter around even for non-golfers: 13th-century Holy Trinity Parish Church and the ruins of St Andrews Cathedral and clifftop St Andrews Castle are pulls for thousands of visitors every year. And as it’s a student centre, you’ll be well sorted for festivals, theatre, live music and other sophistication, with plenty of pubs and a couple of spas for chilling out.

Around the region, Nydie is only a few miles from many popular beaches: West Sands, the two-mile length of sand used in Those Scenes in Chariots of Fire, runs adjacent to St Andrews Links, and Fife as a whole has five of Scotland’s seven Blue Flag winners.

If you’re holidaying with the kids, they can learn or polish their cantering skills at the horse riding school just outside town. For rainy days, East Sands Leisure Centre has a pool and flumes to splash around in and the New Picture House Cinema shows kid-friendly films every day in school holidays.

Must see

  • St Andrews Links (3.7 miles)
  • British Golf Museum (4.0 miles)
  • Carnoustie (13.1 miles)
