Dalraddy Holiday Park was established in 1968. It covers 39 hectares of what was originally heather moor land. The park currently contains 82 fully serviced traditional static holiday caravans, 6 fully serviced wooden chalet style caravans, 67 fully serviced wooden chalets, 36 pitches for touring caravans and facilities for up to 50 tents making us one of the largest caravan and camping sites in the area. The park also sells static caravans and chalets and acts as a letting service for owners that includes cleaning.
Services on the park include a licensed shop; which provides a retail outlet for estate produce, acts as a booking agent for activities and has a computer with free Wi-Fi. There is also a launderette, children's play park and a recently refurbished central toilet block with under- floor heating.
There are an array of activities to enjoy which are available on the Alvie and Dalraddy estate such as Quad biking,1.5 km zip wire course, horse riding, fishing, gorge walking, paintball, bush craft survival courses, clay pigeon shooting, archery and stag feeding. You can even learn about the environment and history of the estate by enjoying a guided tour .
We stayed in chalet 71 for 7 nights in April. The chalet is clean and very comfortable and we were impressed with the service we received from the staff in the holiday park. The park itself has the most amazing views: unfortunately, this chalet is surrounded by trees which is why I've marked it down for location.
A few minor things, could benefit from blinds in the bedrooms , one of the beds definitely not a double bed !!! Pot holes in road to chalet horrendous although they were in the process of repairing them.
Proved to be the perfect setting. Very quiet surrounded by beautiful scenery and wildlife. Superb walks running from the campsite to Aviemore or Kincraig. Central for all main sightseeing resorts and towns.
great location, comfortable static with decking around it lovely and peaceful caravan park set in a woodland and friendly .staff.
Aviemore 3miles great places to eat sit in or takeaway.. highland wildlife park 10mins drive
plenty of walks not far from caravan will be back again thanks x
Stayed for a week with kids, very happy with accommodation. Everything was clean and tidy. Chalet was in very good condition and had all mod cons. Would recommend. The traditional sweet shop in Aviemore was also a hit!
The chalet was warm clean and enjoyable It would benefit from a shower in the main bathroom rather than just in the ensuite The location for views was amazing and isolated but its meant there was a half mile walk in pitch dark on rough roads at night when the barrier was down But the chalet was beautiful and well furnished and tidy
Dalraddy camping is simplybthe best (and cheapest!) in the area. Wonderful, individual, plots in the trees which means seclusion even if it's busy, which it wasn't.
Online booking and payment and free wifi! I could go on...
It is 3 miles from Aviemore but a taxi can be had for £8.00.
What was good:
Good views from the chalet and lots of space around
Useful veranda at the back for storing bikes out of the rain
Shower was powerful
Underfloor heating worked well
Water was piping hot
We had a problem with the shower - the staff were very helpful and got a plumber in to fix it the next day
And not so good:
Chalet looks a little run down from the outside
Kitchen and bathroom could do with some updating
Only two small pans and a frying pan to cook with - a casserole dish and bigger pan would be useful
Mattress protectors would be practical on kids beds
