East Balthangie Caravan Park: Pitches among the trees

General

  • 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 about traditional outdoor holidays with fab farm views at East Balthangie Caravan Park, a site in rural Aberdeenshire where guests can settle down close to cracking coastal spots like the rugged coast of Banff and Buchan and the sandy beaches and dunes to the east. 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, 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 simple and well maintained, including ladies' and gents' toilets, a laundry room with washing machines and tumble dryers, power showers, a communal kitchen and wifi around reception. Dogs are welcome here, but please keep them on a lead except when in the dedicated dog-walking 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 crisscross 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).

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Difficult to locate. Large area has same postcode

From the manager...

Thank you Jim for your review.
Ref location- The postcode actually covers 3 properties only, all within 1/2 a mile of each other, but signage other than our welcome board on the New Deer to New Byth road, which was removed from the roadside by the council has yet to be replaced. After numerous requests from us, they have finally written to say they are holding a 'site visit' to look at replacing signage. Let's hope they can find us :) , 99% of sat navs get you here and we are a P.O.I. on Tom-Tom and marked on all O/S maps which helps!.
Hope to see you again, safe travels in the meantime!

    The site was very peaceful, and the facilities were good. There were lots of beaches to visit, which were all beautiful especially Fraserburgh.
    Anna the owner was especially kind and helpful and would go out of her way to help and assist.

    Great site. Simple and very quiet - what we go camping for! Anna was super helpful (in fact offering to help before we even needed it). The camping kitchen is great with lots of useful items. If you're like us you will always forget that one thing you need. Lovely views and good location for exploring the North Aberdeenshire and Moray coast.

From the manager...

Hi Jacqui, thank you for your lovely review! Glad you enjoyed your stay.. Anna was on her own this last few days, so had to work extra hard to make sure everyone was ok, and had everything they needed during their stay! Thanks again and we hope to see you again in the future. Safe travels in the meantime JB

Thanks, Stephen, your kind comments and review are much appreciated!
We hope to see you again when next in the area. Safe travels until then!
Ref signage.. we agree! The council is coming out to review the situation & no doubt at some point, they will replace the signage we used to have, that was removed 2 years ago!! We're not allowed to put up our own signage, unfortunately, so have to rely on visitor's sat-navs to get you here....

    Although amenities are a little dated, they were absolutely immaculate & so many little touches that made our stay fantastic. The kitchen room was fab too. The enclosed dog walking park is such a good idea. You want for nothing here (inc WiFi, albeit limited) 😃 would definitely recommend it.

Thank you very much for a lovely review! Much appreciated!
FYI- the facilities are meant to look a little dated.... We aim for a period, 1950's look...(but with the modern tweaks such as power showers & hairdryers etc.... :) Hope you approve!
Happy travels and see you again soon we hope! J&A

Local attractions

Entranced by the scenery on site? There's plenty of things to see and do without straying far from base, with top picks being seaside strolls in Banff (20 minutes' drive) and tours of (purportedly haunted) Delgatie Castle (10 minutes). Aden Country Park (20 minutes), meanwhile, is a great option for picnics, barbecues and manageable trails; you can also poke your nose into a gift shop that sells local crafts and the artfully laid out Aberdeenshire Farming Museum.

Got a thing for blinking beacons? Make tracks for the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses in Fraserburgh (25 minutes), a historic lighthouse – the oldest on the Scottish mainland, no less – that was built right on top of a 16th-century castle. After having a look-see at the largest lens collection in the UK, other old buildings like Haddo House (25 minutes), Fyvie Castle (25 minutes) and Slains Castle (45 minutes) are up for inspection.

At a loose end on a Sunday morn? A rummage through the weekly market and car boot sale at Thainstone (40 minutes) should see to that.

Must see

  • Carnegie Museum (19.1 miles)
  • Aberdeen Maritime Museum (28.9 miles)
  • Duthie Park Winter Gardens (29.8 miles)
