Opening Date

The caravan park will open on Thursday, 22nd March 2018, at noon - one weekend before Easter.

Here to Help

If you would like our ‘Start Up’ service, please PHONE Billy’s Mobile (do NOT email) at least 48 hours before your arrival. This should give us time to get your holiday home’s water and gas system ready and identify any problems. Please note to protect your holiday home we will turn off the stopcock again.

The charge remains at £27.50 incl. VAT - unless we decide that you qualify for free help.


DIY Opening

It is best to arrive as early as possible.  So that Billy & Tom will have enough time in their working day to help with any problems.



Now that the hardware installed last year has proved to be a success it is time to risk introducing phase two.  This year there will be a single password for each holiday home allowing the use of several devices at the same time.  Each device will only need logging on once in the season.


The success of the multi-use password is highly dependant on the co-operation of the users.  While Crail and the caravan park have fibre to the cabinet – our cabinet is No. 1 situated on the ‘Old Bank’ corner.  We are certainly not Fibre to the premises.

Please remember that it is a communal service and is not designed for streaming movies & TV programmes especially when there is high occupancy.  Hopefully it won’t be necessary to reintroduce limited access during the season – it will be closely monitored.


WiFi Internet costs £27.00 – when purchased with the Pitch Fees.  Passwords purchased later will cost £30.  Note – The Password will be delivered to your caravan 24 hours after receiving your payment for 2018 Pitch Fees & WiFi. 

Note that Passwords will not be supplied prior to the 2018 Pitch Fees being paid.  ALL Passwords purchased in 2017 have now EXPIRED.


Gas Safety

Our Gas SAFE engineer David McQueen has informed us of his charges for 2018. 

Block Gas Safety Checks will be £94.80 incl. 20% VAT plus parts & any extra labour, same as last year. 

For Call Outs and Single Safety Checks the minimum charge will be £114.00 plus parts -  could be higher.


Balcomie Links Hotel

The development proposal has been turned down by Fife Planning.  We don’t know what the long-term plans will be, but the hotel will reopen after Mike & Debbie’s winter break on 15th March.
