  • 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 panoramic 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 while they’re out golfing. (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 3.5 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: we can’t see this site not suiting the hole family down to a tee…

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.)

The fishing villages and sea angling of East Neuk are within a few miles, and the Fife Coastal Path 117-mile shoreline stretch from the Forth Bridge in the south to the Tay Bridge in the north can be picked up along here too.

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.

Cupar, within six miles, has several historical buildings to see and is a short distance from the National Trust for Scotland’s Edwardian house Hill of Tarvit, crammed with eighteenth century Chippendale and French furniture, Chinese porcelain and with a restored Edwardian laundry.

St Andrews is well worth a potter around even for non-golfers: thirteenth 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.

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.

There are a few farms around in Fife too: the family can pick their own fruit at Allan Hill and Cairnie fruit farms, or get footwear mucky at the adventure play centre Muddy Boots in Cupar.

For your little beasties, The Scottish Deer Centre and the Fife Animal Park are also near Cupar, and brave beasties can dive with the sharks at St Andrews Aquarium or at North Queensferry’s Deep Sea Aquarium within about 45 minutes’ drive.
