There is also a challenging cliff top golf course nearby.

Dogs favourite!

We have been to this site many times, it is one of our favourites and less than 50 miles from home, great for a weekend with THE best fish & chips from The Bay. Our 2 dogs love the walks by the sea, through the woods and in the park. We love the new addition of music in the facilities block. Now, this being the seaside there are seagulls, which can be noisy especially when they have young, I love the sound of them (we also live near the sea) Strangely enough dogs bark, it's their way of communicating, dogs love holidays too, we wouldn't dream of going on holiday without our 2 dogs!!! I think we need some new sited dedicated to the moaners who clearly don't enjoy their holidays, or maybe they need soundproof caravans!

Noises site full of dogs

This is a nice clean site on the sea front - we didn’t get a very warm welcome from the wardens - we intended to stay here for 2 nights but at 4am in the morning the seagulls started crying this went on until past 6am then the dogs in the site started barking. We live in Cornwall by the sea so we are used to gulls and their noise but here it was just unbearable. Hence our move from his site to another after just one night.. With regard to the dogs - this site had so many dogs that when one started barking another did and then another - the Club really needs to be more strict with these arrogant dog owners who think it’s ok to sit and allow their dogs to bark. We have been a dog owner ourself and never really saw the need to take our dog on holiday with us very often but when we did we certainly don’t allow it to bark everytime someone walked by. Come on Club - sometime needs to be done. On their trip we visited a private site which allowed NO dogs and that was such a quiet lovely site - perhaps the Club could have some NO dog sites too?

2nd stop towards NC500

1st time in the area, superb location. Excellent facilities. Very handy for getting to either centre of Stonehaven itself, further round to the old harbour area or a cliff top walk north to the old Chapel.

Fabulous time.

We have visited Stonehaven before but never camped here. We arrived here after travelling from a Private site in St Andrews. My goodness what a contrast! The wardens here were so welcoming and helpful. The pitches were spacious. Facility blocks immaculate. We felt at home straight away and our pitch had a lovely view looking towards Stonehaven. On this occasion we had our daughter and two grandsons with us. They enjoyed playing their outdoor games and riding their scooters. The shower blocks were so warm and bright they enjoyed their trips to the shower. The pebble beach is right outside the site where there are many rock pools to search and stones to skim. The local land train also stops at the entrance of the site and took us all the way to the dramatic Dunnottar Castle and back. The whole family enjoyed the massive ice creams from the local parlour and the fish and chips. We even tried a deep fried mars bar from the birthplace in Stonehaven. We had a dip in the outdoor pool and walked the prom. Plenty to do here and a fabulous location for touring. We’d love to return and would highly recommend it. Thank you so much to the wardens who managed to secure us an extra nights stay. Really appreciated it! Well done on keeping such a wonderful site!

Fantastic location and facilities for families

We stayed here for 2 nights on our recent epic journey north from the Midlands to Orkney staying at caravan club sites a long the way. This was a lovely site to stay at in an excellent location with great facilities. Pitches were great as you would expect and wardens friendly. The location really made it. A short walk to a nice sea front with a great fish and chip shop (allow time to queue!). Lovely ice cream/ sweetie shop next door too and well maintained public toilets. Stonehaven centre was a short stroll along the front and had a bank/ coop/ etc. Also great kids play park near the site outside the indoor pool. The outdoor pool was great fun. Couldn't recommend it more!
