Details : A warm welcome awaits you on our family run tranquil site set within a traditional, stone-built small holding on the edge of the market town of Maybole, Ayrshire. The site is open all year. We offer a choice of hard standing or well-drained level grass pitches, surrounded by a patchwork of rolling green countryside attracting wildlife such as deer, grey heron and barn owls. Many previous guests have remarked on the immaculate condition of the site. All pitches have electric hook-up (16 amp) with access to a new toilet block with shower, toilet and wash basin. Adults and children are welcome as are well behaved dogs.
The local shop is found less than a mile into Maybole. Other amenities include a supermarket, cafes, pubs and restaurants which are found within the High Street running from the imposing town hall, built in 1887, to the equally impressive Maybole Castle.
Sporting opportunities include a swimming pool, a 9-hole golf course with splendid views across the Carrick Hills and scenic golf courses in Turnberry (8 miles) and Royal Troon (17miles). Fishing enthusiasts can enjoy the well-stocked trout pool in Loch Mochrum (3 miles). Culzean castle and country park (5.5 miles) is a National Trust property set in acres of woodland, including five kilometres of coastline, caves, rock pools and sand and shingle beaches. The castle is a remarkable vision of turrets and battlements and well worth a visit. More on our Web Site

A lovely site
The site was ideal for us & our 2 grandkids, & we stayed for 8 nights. The shower room was great as both children could be taken in together. The pitches were large & flat & great having hard standing as it was very wet. The site is well maintained & ideal for local attractions. We ate at the Kirkmichael Inn which was excellent & had a great varied children’s menu.
Exceptional wee site
We stayed at Auchenwynd for a week , arriving about an hour ahead of arrival time but this was not a problem, the owners- Gavin and Sally were busy trimming hedges and cutting the grass. We pitched up and got settled then Sally came and introduced herself and showed us where everything was. We paid on arrival and were pretty much left to enjoy our holiday but they were always at hand at the farmhouse if we needed anything. The shower and toilet facilities are well kept, plenty hot water and a good shower too. This lovely site is a shining example of a CL, it is absolutely lovely, huge pitches, 3 hard standing and 2 grass , all beautifully laid out with fencing and hedges surrounding the site. A ten minute walk takes you into Maybole, a small town but with all the shops you need- a Co-op, Spar, bakers, butcher, cafes, etc and plenty good places to eat in the surrounding area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Auchenwynd, it felt like we’d been on holiday much longer than a week and therefore would have no hesitation in recommending this site to anyone visiting the area.
a gem and not to be missed
Beautifully kept site, big level pitches, fantastic shower, spotless toilets, books, magazines,information leaflets on shelf in the toilet/shower area. Easy access to all that is best in Ayrshire and a friendly sheep who just loves being stroked and makes a funny snoring noise! The owners are friendly and nothing is too much for them to make your stay as perfect as possible. The reason the overall rating is not 5 is because the 2 large gates are left open and it would be good if they had some sort of security code. We recommend.
Another enjoyable stay at Auchenwynd
This delightful little CL is starting to become a firm favourite with ourselves now. A well appointed site with lovely big and level pitches with really nice scenic views of the Carrick hills and surrounding area. Situated just two miles from Maybole, and easily accessible to the village for a Co-Op, Sparr and a few takeaway shops also. A good central location for visiting Girvan, Stranraer, Ayr and the surrounding coastline. A quiet and tranquil site where we both enjoyed good night's sleep and relaxation. We will certainly be looking to come back for another visit.
10 Days at Auchenwynd
On arrival at Auchenwynd we found the access to the site very good even with a twin axle van all the pitches are good and even, no problems levelling the van up. There are three hard standing and two grass pitches all with good views across thw Aryshire countryside. The sites location is good for visiting the many places of interest in the area. Culzean Catle, Dumfries House and Arran to name but a few. The owners ( Mr and Mrs Watson) were very helpful and friendly and the information about the area is very good. There is a heated toilet / shower room on site and easy access to water and elsan disposal. We will revisit the site and would recommend it to other club members.
