 Spent a lovely weekend at Fairacres with our daughter, son in law and grandchildren.

Anne and Trevor were very welcoming and provided a lovely supper in the barn on the Saturday night. Weather wasn’t too great but we were pitched hard standing so avoided wet grass.

Will definitely be back

 Brilliant cs site with excellent facilities. Site kept immaculate by Anne the owner. Anne and hubby Trevor are very welcoming and go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that you enjoy your stay.

The get together in the barn on Saturday evening is great. Anne provides the buffet and you take your own drink, the craic is superb. Nice pub less than 10 mins walk away has outdoor seating area with great views over Lough Neagh.

Highly recommended. I only put 5/10 for child friendliness because there are no dedicated facilities for them on site. Having said that there are loads of places to visit within 10 miles to keep the kids amused.

 Lovely site, with great facilities. Thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Owners very welcoming and as caravanners themselves know just what caravanners need.

We stayed on a hard standing pitch and the access was extremely easy.

Despite being in a very quiet location, it was very convenient for Belfast.

 What a find for two retired newbies. As others have said Ann and Hubby Trevor are both friendly, helpful and informative. My wife and I loved the location- a few hundred yards from Lough Neagh and the local pub.

A few miles away is Portmore Lough a terrific RSPB Sanctuary. And nature reserve. The area is also great for any anglers with trout, salmon, carp and coarse fishing all fairly close.

The site is surrounded by countryside with a plethora of birdsong and a pair of nesting Buzzards nearby. The local RSPB warden has also identified Merlin, Sparrowhawk, Kestrel and Marsh Harrier.

Besides the local pub Clennaghans near Aghalee is a great restaurant and pub. It also has a fascinating history which the staff are happy to inform visitors.

We have visited Fairacres twice in the last month and shall be going back to explore much more.

As others have pointed out the gathering in the barn on Saturday night is great craic and opportunity to meet folk from all over.

 A good level site with excellent facilities for £14 per night, but the actual site is about an acre, was expecting larger, the 4. 5 acres mentioned must include the 2 adjoining fields which can be used for dog exercising. Also there are no views, the site is enclosed by trees and bushes which does help with the wind, which blows a lot.

Huge access through a coded gate, opens automatically when leaving.

The nearest shop and fuel is at Aghalee, about 3 miles away. There is a Tesco at Crumlin, probably about 10 miles away.

There is not really much to see locally, so it's better used for a couple of nights only.

Ann the owner is friendly and helpful and takes great pride in her site.

 A Gem of a site!

Ann and Trevor are so welcoming and couldn't do enough for you. The site is kept immaculate, the grass is like a garden lawn. Fantastic showers and a chance to meet other campers in the Barn on a Saturday night with Trevor's wood burner keeping you cosy.

Pub and restaurant only 5 mins walk away. Great wee site and I am happy to return again and again!

 Just returned home today after 5 nights at this site. It is a beautiful and peaceful site, immaculately kept with great toilet and shower facilities.

The shower is a fab power/mixer shower and has loads of water - no running about to get wet! The block is very clean as well with plenty of lights at night. It is a lovely sheltered spot with nice windbreak bushes and trees around the edge.

Haven't commented on 'child friendliness' as this isn't applicable to us, there are no reasons why not to take children, although there is nothing especially for them to do here, with no play area and so quiet it would seem more appropriate for adults.

The access to the site is huge and wouldn't be a problem to the biggest of units, some of the approach lanes are a little narrow though, but easy enough with care. Ann and Trevor, the owners, are really lovely people.

Nothing is too much trouble for them, even down to a get together of all on site on the Friday and Saturday evening. Such good hosts! The pub down the road does a great meal, you won't come away hungry!

It's also in a nice spot at Gawleys Gate on Lough Neagh, nice to have a drink outside in the afternoon and look at the view. All in all we couldn't fault this site on anything, not even if we were to be really critical.

We will definitely be back.

 We are just home after 5 days at Fairacres caravan park

Great site, so peaceful, 1 of the most relaxing weekends we had and Ann who runs it is 1 in a million, so very helpful and really does want you to enjoy your stay

The facilities are very clean

You have all you need on this site to have a great break

There is a lovely wee pub just 5 mins walk from site that we are told they serve lovely meals Friday Saturday and Sunday and on our next trip we intend to have a meal there

Cant wait to go back now

If you want a quiet relaxing break this is the place to be

I know it is one we will be returning to for sure

Thank You Ann, see you soon
