Highlight for my kids was the opportunity to handle guinea pigs, kittens, rabbits. This was worth the £10 entrance fee (2 adults 2 kids). Assault course is excellent, but too muddy to be properly enjoyed. Kids loved the quad train which was good value. Outstanding location. Our girls did not want to leave!

Very disappointed that the entrance fee covers so little. Literally a few animals - took us less than 5 minutes to get round the animals. Dogs and cats in pens! A few sheep, a goat and chicks. That was the height of it! £2 for every additional activity like the go carts, quad train and unbelievably the activity barn! Ludicrous.... More

Family trip comprising mum, dad & 2 kids age 11 & 5 years. Firstly let me say the countryside setting of this farm is outstanding. The Glens of Antrim are spectacular, & being from N Ireland we just don't go there often enough to appreciate what's on our doorstep. So this was a 'great excuse' to experience the Glens again!...

Just back from a two week stay at Watertop farm with my family. I have three children aged 4,2 and 7 months and we spent both weeks in our caravan on the farm. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff, amenities and general activities. My children adored the ponies and how close you can be with the animals. All... More

We visited the farm recently&were very disappointed,the admission price in covers nothing but a small play park&a few (really is a few) animals. The activity barn £2 per child & the go karts £2 per child is ludicrous! These types of things should surely be in the admission price or if they prefer to charge per child then scrap the... More

First time there and definitely be back! My kids had an absolutely fantastic time. Too many things to list as positives of Watertop. To name a few : friendly staff, reasonable prices for activities, good variety of activities and good camping facilities. Really enjoyed the nearby forest and also the waterfall walk within watertop. All of us had fun competing... More

We were charged £30 per night that even included £2.00 per night for the dog. YES THE DOG ITS HARD TO BELIEVE I KNOW electric was included in the price. There is only... More

watertopterry, Owner at Watertop Farm, responded to this review

Really sorry you did not rate watertop too highly. We do our best to ensure that all visitors to our home enjoy their stay with us. Its possible that you may prefer a much bigger communal site nearer a town or city. Most of our visitors like the fact that we are out in the countryside surrounded by fantastic scenery.... More
