Visit Northern Ireland and enjoy a stay at Watertop Farm.

This campsite is in a stunning location close to the town of Ballycastle on the north coast of Northern Ireland. The camping and caravan site at Watertop Farm is open from Easter until Halloween, while the farm itself is open to tourists throughout July and August, weekends in June, and the Easter and May Bank Holiday weekends.

The park has two caravanning areas that are suitable for motorhomes and touring caravans, as well as a separate camping area where guests can pitch their tents. All of the pitches regardless of accommodation are serviced with electric and water hook-ups. Additional facilities provided for camping and caravanning guests at Watertop Farm include a new toilet and shower block exclusively for staying visitors, a washing up area and a laundrette.

There are many activities and attractions offered at Watertop Farm, keeping guests entertained during their stay even if they choose to spend the whole time on the site!

Children always enjoy interacting with the farm animals at the park, with puppies, piglets, lambs and chicks all requiring attention throughout the year. Guests can get involved with sheep shearing and various other farmyard tasks, while also learning about how life on the farm works and why each task is important for each animal.

The site has some children's play areas with various pieces of equipment suited to kids of all ages, while there is a pedal go karting course as well as a fun yet challenging assault course for the whole family to tackle. A boating lake on the site is popular with guests and is a great way to enjoy a period of relaxation at the park, while pony trekking on-site and out into the surrounding area gives visitors a special and memorable perspective of the beautiful County Antrim landscape.A new indoor Activity Barn has been added to the facilities. Inside you will find a bouncy slide, a climbing wall, digger zone, soft play area and giant games

For those still wanting to learn more about farm life there is a museum at the site and the opportunity to be taken around the farm on a Paddi Wagon. Refreshments and essentials can be picked up at the on-site tearooms and shop.

Guests looking to explore beyond Watertop Farm have numerous choices at their disposal. Countryside walks always prove popular, and several trails head out from the site, both towards the County Antrim coastline as well as inland.

Although Ballycastle is a small town, it has a number of excellent attractions and places for tourists to spend time. A walking trail known as The Gray Man’s Path winds along one of the clifftops in town and gives breathtaking views out to sea, while the mountain of Knocklayde offers a terrific walk with an amazing reward at the top, of views across Northern Ireland, the sea, and even, if you're lucky, of Scotland.

The main beach in Ballycastle, the Strand, has Blue Flag status and always has something going on for families to enjoy, while in town there are several churches that are notable for various reasons associated with the history of Northern Ireland.

Watertop Farm is a great location for adventure filled motorhome and caravan and camping holidays, as well as being a perfect base for exploring Ballycastle and elsewhere in County Antrim, when you're in Northern Ireland.
