Well-maintained and peaceful five-acre site in rural Aberdeenshire
A 20-minute drive from Banff; 25 minutes from Fraserburgh
Direct access to the North Sea Cycle Route; wifi and shared kitchen
It’s all back to traditional outdoor holidays with fab farm views at East Balthangie Caravan & Camping Park. A site in rural Aberdeenshire where guests can settle down close to cracking coastal spots like the rugged Northern coast of Banff and Buchan, or the sandy beaches and dunes to the East, stretching from 52 miles from Aberdeen to Fraserburgh. In fact, those bringing their bikes can get straight to the seaside pedalling, as there’s direct access to the scenic North Sea Cycle Route.
The folk here say that their aim is to recreate what outdoor hols were like in the 1950s: as such, but updated with modern facilities. What you see is what you get, with the only additional charges being for extras like use of the machines in the laundry room. This is very much a ‘live and let live’ kind of place, where guests have plenty of room to pitch up in stunning Scottish surrounds and take in the peace and quiet.
The facilities here are well maintained, including ladies’ and gents’ toilets & shower facilities, with power showers and hair dryers, a communal kitchen, with washing machine and tumble dryer, and site wide wifi- although please note , broadband speeds here are very ‘rural’! Dogs are more than welcome here, but please keep them on a lead on site and farm walks, except when in the dedicated secure dog exercise area.
East Balthangie Caravan Park is well set up for outdoor living: picnic tables have been strategically placed in some of the best spots for alfresco lunches. Crop growth allowing, you’re also free to take strolls on the paths that criss-cross the adjacent farmland.
The nearest supermarket is in Cuminestown (10 minutes’ drive). For a drink or pub-cooked meal, head into New Deer (10 minutes).
