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…

    Disliked: 

    How far the toilets and wash blocks were. Would gave liked the toilet block to be more central to the tent pitches as we were quite far out

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to review our site and your stay. I take on board your comments, however with being rural, we were very limited on location of the blocks due to the services infrastructure.
I’m pleased to see that it wasn’t enough of an issue to put you off visiting us again. Thanks again 🙂

    The pitch was where you parked your car

    Disliked: 

    Open ground not a forest tent experience

From the manager...

Unfortunately I fell this is a very unfair review. You stated you disliked the site as it was not a forest experience. We DO NOT CLAIM TO BE and the description and other review, clearly show this.
As for accommodation, it was your own tent,
May I suggest, when booking a site that you read the description fully.
I’m pleased to see that you rated the customer service correctly, as we went out of our way to accommodate your fathers request for a fire pit even though you hadn’t pre booked on a busy weekend.

    Close to swing park
    Small site

    Disliked: 

    Very noisy at night
    Tent pitches are at opposite side from toilet block.
    Pitches could be bigger. Not much space if you have people on both sides of you

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to review the site and am sad to hear it was noisy. We have a quiet after 11pm policy and if there are any issues we please ask that you call reception and this will be dealt with. We do check for noise, however you can appreciate we can not do this constantly and rely on fellow campers.
I have to say that this is the first time we have ever had a negative comment about the pitch size being too small (10x10m). We have regular reviews on how large our pitches are and how much space there is.
I’ve looked at the pitch number that you stay on and note that there wasn’t anyone around you, so not really a problem during your stay.

    Small cubicles in ladies toilets. Showers were out of action so had to use ones in the men’s toilets behind washing up area. Could do with more pegs or shelf to put things on

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)
