Lovely stay at this site so close to the city but yet the views are fantastic. Very friendly and helpful owners will definitely be back. Dogs are welcome my four loved it work still ongoing but this doesn't interfere with your stay. New toilet block and shower block opened. Keypad for gate which is very easy to use.

Visited this site to visit Londonderry. Need a taxi to get to the city or a very quick 30 minute walk to a bus stop. The site is run by a very friendly and helpful family. It comprises of all that it says on the brochures etc but the photos hide a great deal. Yes nice views, but the whole site is roughly done. It's like a builders yard in progress but the progress seems to have come to a standstill a long while ago. One toilet, one shower in a combined cubicle and the door in the mens doesn't even shut properly. You can clearly be seen sitting on the loo and the door is fastened with a bit of wire. Two sinks for washing up but you can only get at one, a unit sits in front of the other. The water pipe leading to the shower hangs loosely from the ceiling. Some of The hard standings are at least 3-4 inches higher than the ground around them with no ramp up to them. Not ideal for driving onto so we parked up on an area that was gravelled. The whole site inside and out lacked attention and was appeared rough. It is over priced for what it is. I would not recommend this site and would not visit again

Stayed at this camp site for two nights. The road up to it was small and hard to get passed parked cars etc. Owners were kind people, only seen one of them. The campsite itself isn't finish at all, needs tidying up, concrete instead of rough stone, very windy spot needs some wind block!, grass cut. Toilets locks were broke. No toilet rolls. Only one shower, birds nesting inside. Not much to do on campsite. The price of staying at campsite is way too much, unless it was finished. I would only give 10 pound a night for staying at it.

A delightful spot with great views. As others have pointed out the facilities are a little agricultural and the site is still 'work in progress'

That said we were warmly welcomed and would definitely use it again as they seem determined to create something special.

Reasonably priced to reflect the situation.

I used the campsite last weekend with my Girl Guide unit for a weekend camp.

The location of the site is great as there is no other campsite site around Derry that these youth groups can use.

Paul and is family were so helpful, making sure we were set up ok. The facilities were good, only issue being that there is only 1 female toilet so was a bit of a queue when 15 of us on camp together. I know there is plans for a shower/toilet block and this will be a great extra to the site.

There was plenty of space if the kids to run around and enjoy.

I will be back to use the site and will recommend them to other guide groups

For the sake of all those expecting an idyllic site I will give our experiences. The site is reached by a narrow twisting road up a hill a short distance outside Derry - probably ok with a smaller motorhome but more difficult with a towed van, especially bigger outfit (this can also be an issue leaving the site, steeply uphill at a bend in the road). On arriving at the site you see first a motley collection of buildings and equipment.

The site does not yet have a proper surface, not even gravel, just a thick layer of roughly broken up tarmac with heaps of the same stuff marring the view of the valley beyond.

I have marked site down for child friendliness as unless the child is one who likes to play on a toy digger in heaps of broken up asphalt, there is little here for them.

Facilities - very good campers' kitchen with free use of washing machine and hot water. Information available on local area. Comfortable seating area.

Others complained re low electricity rating of hook ups but we had no problem using microwave / kettle / hair dryer though as usual we only had one on at a time. Wash blocks have one shower and one toilet situated in same cubicle in each of the male and female washrooms, so you would want to have your own facilities if a few units were staying. Over the holiday weekend that we stayed the washrooms did not appear to have been cleaned at all from our arrival till we left 3 days later. Standard of plumbing in the washrooms was incredibly poor 'home job'.

Small area of lawned grass on site suitable for tents - if you don't mind very limited facilities. Larger rough grass area but grass a bit too long even for football,

Owners whom we met once were very friendly.

Our overall opinion was that this was a site started with great intentions and ideas but nowhere near finished and still requiring work essential for a proper site. Yes it is expensive to set up such a venture, but the site was being extended while the first part was still in a very unfinished state. Disappointing that facilities were not properly maintained over a holiday weekend.
