Ready to see the tiddlers’ eyes widen with excitement? Deliver the news that you’re off to a theme park – nope, not just for the day, but actually to move in for a while…
Cast an eye over the plethora of attractions at Lanarkshire’s M and D’s Theme Park (thrill rides, kids’ rides, family rides, adventure golf, soft play, bowling, an amusement arcade, an indoor rainforest…) and it’s easy to see why you might come to the conclusion that it’d be a struggle to cram it all into one day. To be in with a fighting chance of getting around to every corner of the park, it’s surely sensible to stay at least overnight – if not even longer (more time = more goes on your fave rides…).
Pick whatever pace you like for your outings into the park, too, as the folk that run the place have generously rolled in unlimited access for guests throughout their stay (just pay as you go for additional activities within the park). Fill every day of your stay with theme park fun if you wish, or take advantage of the handy location (just off the M74, close to Glasgow and Edinburgh and surrounded by the Strathclyde Country Park) to see the wider area before stopping off for a ride or game just before bedtime.
Free access into the theme park also means you can wander in there for food and drinks (at the family restaurant, food court, coffee shop and bar) whenever you fancy; for self-catering supplies, make off to Motherwell, 10 minutes’ drive away.
The hardstanding pitches area is just behind the Amazonia indoor rainforest; it's locked at 8pm every night to keep the area secure, but guests can still access toilet facilities and food and drink a short walk away in the hotel. There's also access to free power and fresh water at the pitches.
To generate better results:
- Choose the 'Multiple units per pitch' filter in the search results.
- Break your booking down into smaller groups and book multiple pitches.
- Click the button ‘Make another booking like this’ on the confirmation page to easily rebook.
- Ask to be sited together in the ‘Special requests’ box on the booking form.
You can also try filtering your search by group type and by sites allowing multiple tents/caravans/motorhomes per pitch.
Decent stay, as expected for price.

Hi I’m sorry you was not happy with our hard standing pitches we have given you a full refund and have created some new grass pitches Due to the high demand we have been getting.

Clearly there’s a huge amount to do within the theme park, but it’s also possible that a bit of time away from the bright lights and thrills might be a good idea lest it all get a bit overwhelming. For a bit of calming nature you don’t have to roam very far, as the park and site are within the Strathclyde Country Park, which has a sizeable lake to stroll around.
Once you’ve limbered up at the park’s adventure golf, might you perhaps feel ready for something a bit more expansive? There are three golf courses within a 10-minute drive for those ready to face such challenges.
Keep that outdoorsy vibe going with outings to meet the creatures that live in the small zoo at Calderglen Country Park (15 minutes) or have a little taste of fifties-style farming life at the working farm at the National Museum of Rural Life (20 minutes).
For urban days out, it’s around a 25-minute drive to the centre of Glasgow or around an hour and a quarter to Edinburgh.
