Haughton House Holiday Park is a large beautiful woodland campsite located within the picturesque 40-hectare Haughton Country Park.
Just a 15-minute walk from the many restaurants and shops of Alford village, Haughton offers 71 touring pitches with electric hook-up, plus space for 70 tents. The mansion house also features four spacious self-catering apartments.
A friendly smile and a warm welcome await guests, thanks to experienced holiday park owners Hugh and Debbie Ballantyne, who recently took over the park. The couple encourage a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere where guests are free to enjoy a barbecue, take a round of putting or go for a quiet stroll along the River Don, which is especially popular with fishermen and canoeists.
The park boasts two children’s playgrounds and kids of all ages love riding on Alford Valley Railway’s narrow-gauge train. As a base for exploring, Haughton is perfectly placed; 15 golf courses are within a half-hour drive, Balmoral and the castle trail are easily reached, as are the Cairngorms National Park and many of Scotland’s finest whisky distilleries. Alternatively, just sit back, take it easy and unwind as you savour the peaceful tranquillity of the surroundings and the park’s enthusiastic chorus of birds.
New for 2013; two holiday caravans are now available for hire. Call for more details!

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
