Opened in April 1972, Craigtoun Meadows Holiday Park is set in a beautiful rural, woodland location, just 1.5 miles from the centre of St Andrews. The park has been regularly recognised as one of the country's best, and has been awarded the prestigious AA Campsite of the Year for Scotland in 1984, 1991, 2002 and 2016.

Currently rated 5 Star by VisitScotland, Craigtoun Meadows Holiday Park offers guests the choice of luxury lodges, static holiday homes, little glamping lodges, hardstanding pitches for motorhomes and touring caravans and grass pitches for tents.

While the hired caravans and the holiday lodges are equipped with modern conveniences and appliances, there is a range of facilities offered for touring guests to ensure they enjoy the highest possible level of comfort during their stay, too.

The amenities block at Craigtoun Meadows Holiday Park includes toilets, baths, showers, and a washing up area.

Around the park there is plenty for guests to do. A large children’s play area is complemented by a multi-sports court that sees plenty of fun as well as competition throughout the year.

There are two games rooms at the park, between them boasting video games, an air hockey table, table football, and two pool tables. A friendly coffee shop and restaurant is also found at the park, and is open for breakfast and dinner. Takeaway options are also provided in the early evening for guests looking to eat in their caravan, tent, or lodge.

A short drive or a nice walk takes guests into the centre of St Andrews, where they will find everything from quirky shops, tea rooms, and restaurants to museums and other cultural attractions. The town is perhaps most famous for its world class golf course, which can be seen from the roadside and even be played by golfing guests staying at the park.

Outside of the town there are miles of coastal walks and countryside trails to explore, while a number of clean and safe beaches are also worth exploring.

A scenic drive to the north takes guests across the River Tay and into the popular city of Dundee. Dundee offers a taste of modern life in Scotland for guests preferring this to the traditional style of St. Andrews and the surrounding villages. Tourists have the option of leaving the car behind and taking public transport into Dundee. The trip from St Andrews takes under an hour.

We have an awesome 18 hole crazy golf course - putters and balls can be hired from reception. In 2022 we added 3 electric vehicle charging points - you must register your vehicle in the office in order to be able to use these.

Pleasant staff and well organised

Peters, Jeffrey - 18/05/2024

Originally booked a caravan but was basic so asked to change to lodge. Staff sorted this out quickly and lodge was spacious and spotless. Bathtub was a unexpected extra. Would have been nice to have a verandah with seating. Tv too small for size of room. Good position for visiting St Andrews.

Excellent overnight stay

Jenkinson, Edward - 18/05/2024

5

One of the few campsites to score highly on almost every count. Almost impossible to fault unless you want to nitpick. The only gripe is that the washbasins in the gents facilities were too small to stop you spilling water on the floor when you shave. There’s no mop so there it stayed, a small river snaking over the floor. Apart from that the facilities are spotless, generously sized and bonus points for having a couple of bathrooms with real baths. No I didn’t use it, but never seen this on a campsite before.

Rude bad tempered gentleman at check in to site

Wiseman, Norman - 16/05/2024

We arrived and stopped just past reception area to check in to site. Gentleman at reception immediately told us to move and that it was a 15min check in time. My husbandc3xplain3d he parked to enable other cats to get out of car park but was rudely told that we couldn't park there, there was a bay we should have parked in ( very unclear lines on road) ! We then asked if possible to extend our stay by few hours and were again very abruptly told "we don't do that". Very unwelcoming to the site. Otherwise lovely site, stay and cleanliness

Fraser, Michelle - 16/05/2024

We stayed in a ‘little lodge’ and wasn’t sure what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. The was spotless and perfect for what we needed. The shared toilets were really clean too. We didn’t use any other facilities on camp so we can’t comment on those but we will definitely be back.

Fabulous holiday park, and right next to Craigtoun Country Park too

Baillie, Alistair - 15/05/2024

Nicely organised, clean holiday park with its own playground. But also 2 mins drive from Craigtoun Country Park, which was wonderful for our four year old. Train rides, go-karts, boats, bouncy castles - perfect for kids.2 min drive from Morrisons so it was easy to cook in the holiday home when we wanted.And it's on the ourtskirts of lovely St Andrews, the home of golf but also a uni town with plenty of life for grown-ups.A great stay, defo would go back.

Lovely well maintained park

Campbell, James - 15/05/2024

4

Location of the site is ideal, quiet but 40 minute walk into St Andrews along a very picturesque river path. Staff were friendly and well informed. Facilities provided by the park were first class, very clean and very well maintained. All in all a very safe park and very good value for money. Great stay in a great park.As an improvement within the park the free WiFi, a must nowadays, should be provided throughout the park and not just in the main reception area. The caravan we stayed in was very clean but the mattresses provided in two of the three bedrooms used by adults were very thin and very uncomfortable.
