Hillend Livery Camping: Blue skies

General

  • Peaceful Ayrshire smallholding site surrounded by woodlands
  • Half an hour's drive from Irvine and Ayr; an hour to Dumfries
  • Next to a stream and two miles from the River Ayr Way

Hillend Livery Camping is a quiet pop-up campsite based on a smallholding and livery stables in rural Ayrshire. The site is in a very private location and is encircled by peaceful woodlands, but it's still within easy reach of local towns and villages.

The Dippol Burn stream meanders through the site, and the gorgeous River Ayr Way walk is roughly two miles north of base. Badgers, hedgehogs, deer, foxes, owls and otters can sometimes be spotted in the local area, so keep your eyes peeled when exploring local woodlands and riverbanks.

The pitches here are spacious and unmarked, so feel free to pick your own location. As the site is part of a working farm, you may also see horses and ponies grazing in nearby fields.

This site is all about getting back to nature and relaxing in a secluded family-friendly space. Although the fields feel very peaceful, they're not entirely off-grid and have access to a shower and toilet. Off-ground firepits and barbecues are permitted.

Hillend Livery Camping is roughly a mile and a half from the village of Auchinleck, where there is a railway station, convenience store, pub, butcher's and café.

Please note

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Group bookings of 2 or more units (e.g. tent, touring caravan, motorhome or accommodation hire) travelling together are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

Minimum spacing of 3 metres between pitches.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the park are unlit.

    The peaceful setting with the stream so you could cool down and our child could play in there too.
    The fact that it is 6 minutes from a tesco so you could get things if you needed too.
    No set pitches so you can set up where you want to if you wanted to stay away a bit from other campers.

    Noisy site on an evening. At one point we were part of a football pitch as a group of males played football round our tent. To which the dogs were very distressed. It was a free for all

From the manager...

I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay. We do limit our site to 10 pitches in a 2 acre field to ensure there's plenty of space for everybody. If we'd of been made aware this was happening in the evening we'd of spoken to the people involved. We wish you all the best for your future travels.

    Absolutely loved everything about this site. We wanted to kinda do wild camping but with us not camping for a good few years we didn’t want to completely go off grid so the fact they had toilets and a shower was perfect!
    The weather was fantastic so it was quite busy but it never affected us at all, everyone was very respectful of each other and slept like a baby. There was only around 10 tents in total on the busiest night so not exactly crazy busy.
    Would 100% recommend!!
