Welcome to Sandylands

When you stay at Sandylands Holiday Park in Saltcoats, Ayrshire you’ll enjoy a break packed with magical moments.

Pack a picnic and head to one of the two lovely beaches both just a mile away or explore Saltcoats. You’ve also got easy access to Glasgow, Ayr and Largs thanks to the railway line nearby.

With so much to explore, it’s great to have a relaxing base to return to. Unwind with a dip in the indoor pool or enjoy a meal in the Boathouse Bar & Restaurant.

With a great range of on-park facilities, you’ll enjoy fantastic caravan or touring holidays at Sandylands. We also offer caravan ownership or you can take a holiday under canvas with a camping holiday.

Park staff are friendly and try to help if asked, however, the park and caravans overall is in need of updating. Not much for kids to do on park apart from swimming (limited slots at the pool), small playpark or gaming amusements (quickly amounting to a small fortune). Only a chip shop onsite, which was closed when we stayed. The nearby beach is stunning though.
My advice would be to look elsewhere for better value and facilities.

We arrived after a hard week thinking this holiday would cheer us up. It was the total opposite. Check in quick and easy. Got to our caravan. There was no curtain in kids bedroom. Phoned reception and was told they would send house keeping to look into it. House keeping never came. There was rubbish under beds. The caravan stank of smoke and a cigarette was left on shelf above microwave. There wasn't enough cutlery and glasses for the 6 of us even though it sleeps 8. The sofa was mouldy and under it was covered in dust, mould, and mouldy food and a dirty sock. There was sugar crusted in to the top of microwave. I reported to reception and was told house keeping would clean it. They eventually came but not to clean it just to give me missing items. I moved the bed to stop my son falling out. To find a mouldy bit of food with maggots all over it.
That was it we had had enough and decided to go home as it was filthy. Told reception who refunded us for 5 days we didn't stay. But the 2 days we did stay were ruined.

Just because you bring a dog shouldn’t mean you get a filthy caravan

Hi P,

Thank you for taking the time to complete this review.

We aim to clean all of our accommodations to an exceptionally high standard, regardless of whether it is a pet friendly accommodation or now. It is disappointing to hear that you felt this wasn't the case. We do hope that you promptly raised this with the reception team, to allow us to rectify this for you.

Naturally, we are sorry that the issue arose initially. We hope that your experience does not deter you from re-visiting any of our 71 holiday parks again in the future.
