Immaculate as usual

Just returned home after a 2 night stay at Queen Elizabeth Club Site, Stonehaven. We can only repeat what we have said before, a lovely well kept site. Val and Pete continuously working on site to keep it looking great and well maintained. Plenty of space on all pitches and on hardstanding, which at this time of year means not tramping muck and grass through the Motorhome which is a bonus. Early evening Mrs H was at the ladies shower block and noticed the internal handle on outside door had worked loose. I went over and reported it to Pete who before I had returned to Motorhome and put the kettle on was already at the door re-fitting the handle. I should add that it was horrendous weather at the time. Always loads of hot water for showering and in dish washing room. We got a couple of good soakings out walking so the drying room was made full use of. It`s just always a 10/10 for the site with regard to its upkeep, cleanliness, facilities and the warm friendly welcome that is generated from V&P. Enjoy your winter break guys, after 9 months of hard work I think you deserve it. Graeme & Anne

Great Last Stop

Our Highland coastal tour ended in Stonehaven, after 10 days. We, without knowing it, saved the best site for last. We picked Stonehaven for the fish and chip shop there, they do fabulous fish! After a very friendly greeting, we found the facilities to be fantastic both in layout and cleanliness. A short stroll along the promenade, we saw dolphins leaping out of the water in the bay, takes you into town. Next time, we go to Stonehaven, it will be for the fish and chips plus the SQEP!

Nice site

Arrived one night to very friendly wardens who explained everything about the site. What these wardens have achieved on site regarding the excellent standard of ground maintenance and first class cleaning standard of toilet block. It’s rare to come across this on a club site. Thanks to the wardens. Then we stepped outside the gate and what a mess. Everything was littered everywhere. All bins flowing full of takeaway cartons. Seagulls hauling all the rubbish out of bins. Notices telling you to clean up after dogs. Bag and bin it. Yeh we bagged it but no room in bins. Took it till we found a bin. The place was disgusting and filthy. Site great will only use as stopover.

Perfect and wonderful in every way

  • I marvel at the reviewer below who thought this site “soulless” and who “won’t be back”, but human nature is unpredictable and disparate points of view must be tolerated even if he is in a minority – quite possibly a minority of one!
  • Everyone I spoke to at this wonderful site thought it lovely in every way and I certainly could not dissent from that. It is well kept, neat, open, bright, cheerful, in a fantastic location and all in all is a very happy place to be.
  • It is true that there are a lot of pitches in a relatively small space. The pitches are spacious and well-spaced and there’s no sense of feeling hemmed in, but there’s no spare space, very little unused green space, and perhaps this accounts for the car park comment from the aforementioned negative reviewer.
  • This notwithstanding, the fact that it is one of the very few sites free of the usual boundary of high trees means that it does not have the enclosed feel common to so many sites. I like the fact that there are houses close too, mostly pretty little Scottish cottages and villas, overlooking two sides of the site with one larger home in an almost Art-deco design in the corner. As my friends who live close by said, it makes you feel part of the community and so much the better for that. It is a community with warmth and great friendliness.
  • I even had a sea view from my pitch (63) and, in the other direction, I had a great aspect overlooking the whole site from a slightly raised position. I really felt I had struck lucky with my pitch choice.
  • Planting more trees here would be the absolute worst of misadventures in my view.
  • The nearby, award-winning Bay fish and chips are second to none, and the confectioners and ice creamery next door serves the best vanilla ice cream I have had in years. Expect very long queues at both establishments.
  • There are lots of interesting walks, the town is a delightful little place, the harbour most attractive and the closeness to the sea makes this almost perfect.
  • For motorhomers wanting public transport, the fast X7 bus gets you to Aberdeen quickly in 35 minutes or there is the train too (for Dundee perhaps), although note that the station is an up-hill mile and a half walk.
  • This was without doubt my favourite site stayed at in a very long time and I am struggling to remember anywhere better.
