We chose watertop open farm for our first ever camping trip.
When we arrived, we were directed to the camping field, and given our pitch number. I personally found this helpful as it was our first time camping, I knew exactly were to pitch our tent.
We set up with no problems, the grass was good, and all the pitches seemed level.
The scenery no matter where our tent would have been was beautiful.
There was plenty for the children to do, either play in the large grass area in front of the tents, or play in the playpark. There was also plenty of activities within the farm. There was beautiful walks around the farm, which we done.
I was worried that being close to a farm, that I would be kept awake by the animals, but apart from the odd baa from a sheep, there was no noise at all.
All dogs were kept on leads, the farm and campsite were spotless, and the campsite was quiet by 11pm.
The only one negative, was that the toilet and showers were very basic, but considering everything else was wonderful, this did not spoil our camping experience.
I have stayed at this site several times a year for nearly 20 years. And will continue to do so. It has been a major part of our children's growing up
As it showed them a way of life and experiences they could not get in the city
This is a working farm, and that for me is part of the attraction. It is a great place to camp especially in the new camping field which is relatively midge free. There is a short walk to the toilets, as there is in most sites.
Occasionally there have been problems with toilets getting blocked and I have seen this in many sites all over Europe. Once reported it gets sorted ASAP.
I thoroughly recommend this site for family camping, there is loads to do even when the attractions arent on. Good place for peace and quiet.
The surroundings are amazing, and you are just a short drive away from some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in the British isles
We stayed at this site off season which isn't recommended as none of the advertised activities are are available. There isn't a lot to do if you've nothing else planned to do, except go for walks or drive into Ballycastle.
The site has all the usual facilities (electric, waste disposal), but the toilets and showers aren't that clean.
There are farm animals on site such as sheep, pigs, chicks and rabbits which you can pet and a small playground for kids. They have a minature 'museum', and shop/cafe which is only open in the summer.
I like the easy things in life, space between the vans, electric and water at my pitch, drainage if its at the pitch, brilliant.
But no room to park a car never mind a caravan and awning, having to dander across a dusty public car park to access the showers and toilettes which the public have access to as well isn't a good start. There is a portable loo if you get really caught out, only not on a windy day. In more ways than one!
Although the area around the farm is outstanding, the farm and facilities are a little run down and are in need of some updating
With a bit more effort put in, this site could be up there, but with my budget still tight I expect more for my money.
