When you visit Scotland on your motorhome tours and your camping and caravan holidays, it can be hard to not be seduced by the landscape. And if you pitch at New England Bay Caravan Club Site, which stands on the shores of Luce Bay, you'll get amazing views out across the water and beyond.
This campsite is open from late March until early November every year, and welcomes both members and non-members of the Caravan Club. It has 155 pitches, and welcomes guests with touring caravans, tents, motorhomes and campervans. There are 16 hardstanding pitches at New England Bay Caravan Club Site, plus there is also storage space for 20 motorhomes or touring caravans – out of season storage is also available.
Facilities at this park include a toilet block, a laundrette and a waste disposal point. In addition, there's Wi-Fi, meaning you can keep in touch with friends and family back home, or perhaps jump online to plan your next adventures.
The pitches at New England Bay Caravan Club Site are split across seven separate areas. The park makes the most of the beautiful natural landscape in which it is set to ensure most of the pitching areas provide visitors with a good amount of privacy.
The park provides guests with direct access to the beach, which is clean and safe, ideal for families looking to swim or paddle. A range of water sports can often be enjoyed in the sea, with windsurfing and jet skiing among the activities regularly offered from the beach and nearby. Fishermen not wanting to venture far in search of a catch will find the area is great for sea angling, both from the beach and other areas around the coast or in a boat.
Many guests are attracted to New England Bay Caravan Club Site due to its proximity to some of the best unspoiled landscape anywhere in Scotland – or, some might say, in the UK. With miles of countryside and woodland to explore, if you stay here you have the option of heading out on foot or on your bicycle to discover the beauty of the area. The region is also hugely popular among birdwatchers owing to the numerous species that call the area home, with migration season also fitting in nicely with the park’s opening times throughout the year.
Guests often spend time at the RSPB visitor centre found close to the park, where events and workshops are held throughout the year. Children in particular love learning about the birdlife found in the area then heading out on a nature walk to discover different species for themselves. Other activities and attractions to be found in the local area include numerous high quality golf courses, pony trekking centres, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a bowling green. There is also the Logan Botanic Garden.
The town of Stranraer is less then half an hour away by car and has cultural attractions as well as leisure centres, shops, cafés and restaurants. From here you can also catch the ferry to Northern Ireland.
New England Bay Caravan Club Site is a stunning base for families exploring the idyllic Dumfries and Galloway region on their holidays in Scotland.

A superb touring park in one of the most tranquil parts of Scotland. You get what you would expect from a Caravan Club site. Quiet , relaxing and easy going. Two immaculately clean shower blocks are maybe not enough for a site this size ,but never the less, they were well maintained to the highest standard. The boiler was playing up when we were in residence but still managed to produce adeqate amounts of hot water for a showers,etc.
The park is well laid out in seven intimate pitching areas.Ours was on the second row from the sea and our views were restricted by gorse and sand dunes but we could still hear the waves. Each pitch is spacious with plenty of room for even the biggest awning. There is a stipulated distance of six meters between every pitch.
It is an excellent base for touring the area . Port Patrick and Port Logan are gems that must be visited and The Mull of Galloway lighthouse boasts marvelous views accross to The Isle of Man and Cumbria. Stranraer is a twenty minute drive away and you have a choice of Tesco and Morrisons for provisions and "cheaper "petrol.
Our dog Molly especially enjoyed the beach and was always vigilant in ensuring that we cleaned up after her.
We would have no hesitation in reccomending this site to family and friends.
Haste ye back!
