This is a VERY well kept site, SO far beyond anything else we have experienced in terms of finish and maintenance. Easy to get on and off pitches which are level side to side at least. A lot of thought has went into the site layout with decent space between pitches that don't overlook each other due to the angles. Its got all the services on the left of the van as well.

BUT, we are a couple with three kids who weren't with us on this weekend away and whilst there is a fabulous play-park for the older kids our little lady who is 2 and a half would have been very miserable as there was nothing for her to play on while her brothers would have been in there element. This I can assure you would lead to a mega melt down and two unhappy parents.

The other thing was just how quiet the site was, it was FULL, not a vacant plot and yet we found ourselves talking in hushed tones.

SO if you want the quiet life in a stunning setting its perfect.

If like us you like a bit of noise and the kids to occupy themselves while keeping a gentle eye on them then this may not be for you.

Finally managed to get booked in here after trying all summer. We now know why. Ballyness is an excellent site which is spotless and very very well maintained. Fantastic amenities including a great family wash / shower room and dishwasher / laundry room. Nice pond area. Great Park and games room. There is also a frequent bus service which leaves directly from the site.

Stayed for a few nights, site immaculate, very well kept, facilities top notch. Good level sites. A short walk into Bushmills town, although not much to see there apart from the distillery. Would recommend this site with no hesitation. 10/10. Will be back next year for a few more days.

This was our first port of call on our monthís tour from the North to the West then South West. This is a lovely site and if one abides by their rules NOT your rules then there wonít be any problem. We were on pitch 9 for 5 nights starting 05th July down by the lake which was fantastic. Some of the previous comments I feel were a little nit picking, the perfect site is just around the corner. We would go back tomorrow without a second thought.

One of many qualities that I admire is that they have got the courage to stand by their rules AND implement them. For example, it states on their data sheet which is given to you on arrival in capital letters, Ď DO NOT WALK THROUGH SOMEONE ELSEíS PITCHí (amongst other doís and doníts) if this is ignored and you persist and ignore the respect for occupied pitches then its offsite immediately. I personally admire them for this because there are so many bone idle, lazy people that walk through your pitch that you have paid for during you stay and infringe your privacy. Well done Ballyness.

A convenient site for visiting Giantís Causeway, only a short drive from Bushmills where we parked up and walked along the old train line and beach to get there.

Stayed here for one night following recommendation from a camper on another site we stayed at, sadly didnít live up to expectations. Yes, it is a pristine site and the facilities are immaculate, heated toilet blocks, soap and hand dryers.

However, the site is far too regimented for our liking. Upon arrival we had to ring to book in, where upon we were allocated a pitch number. Upon driving to this (despite the site being very quiet and empty) it was next to other caravans and the wrong direction to pitch our awning (which we were not allowed to put a ground sheet down in).

Another telephone call followed whereby we were offered a choice of 2 other pitches on the same area. We moved a few pitches along and pitched at a better angle, however some inconsiderate dog owner had not cleaned up properly so we had to do this. We still felt there was no privacy to relax both in the van and outside due to the proximity of the other vans.

The pitches are concrete with grass next to them all with taps. The drainage is an issue on these, upon exiting the van we stepped in a puddle of water on the concrete, the grass was also very waterlogged.

Yes, an immaculately kept site with well kept facilities, however in quiet periods I am certain guests would like to be able to pitch where they would like to rather than being jammed in like sardines to one little section.

This has easily become my favourite North Coast site after one visit.

It is a site which is extremely well looked after to the point of obsession. I'm not sure how old it is, but the tarmac, facilities and lawns are all perfect which immediately makes you feel good about having chosen it.

Not much needs to be said about the location as it's perfectly located for the North Coast and its attractions. It is worth mentioning it is an easy 10 minute walk into Bushmills along a footpath.

Every hard pitch is concrete with tap, electric hookup and drain. They are not massive but big enough for a normal caravan and one car parked beside it. They are strict about 1 car, but another can be left at reception's car park. There is also plenty of room for manoeuvring, which with my towing, is useful. There's a nice gap between pitches too. There seems to be limited space for tents and I didn't see any while I was there, but that's probably due to time of year.

The toilet block is really good too. Access is via a key code. Inside they are spotless with heated floors and piped music. Showers are free and hot with plenty of changing space. A mop is provided and campers are encouraged to use it once they have showered. I was particularly impressed with the family bathroom. It allows a family to all get ready together with separate showers, a bath and a toilet. There's also a good kitchen with washing machines, dryers etc.

They have a great little camping shop at reception with all the little spares you might need for your caravan/motorhome. Beside that is a games room for the kids with free pool tables, giant connect four and table football. Further into the site there is a nice little series of three lakes which you can walk around. There were swans and moorhens in it when I visited and some strange sheep statues on one of the islands. My daughter loved walking around it. Finally there is also a basic little play park for the kids too which is well away from the caravans.

Really great site with friendly owners/staff who appear to really care about the place which really shows. They make sure everyone sticks to the rules which is a good thing in my opinion. Other campsites should take a good look at this one as something to aspire too. A full site in late October tells me it's working for them very well and we've already booked in for next summer.
