Excellent site and host

First I would like to thank Howard for his warm and welcoming hospitality. From before arriving to sadly having to leave; we were made to feel as comfortable and welcome as possible. Which with a new baby and heavily pregnant partner was greatly appreciated. Only caveat is just take care when travelling to and from the site with caravan in tow ...a quick tour beforehand on a virtual map exiting at the castlerock crossroads did us no harm. + Exceptional views across an area of outstanding natural beauty + A mile from some 8 miles of blue flag beach. + Secluded and peaceful + Fully serviced pitch + Only 15£/night. Couldn't beat it with a big stick.

Excellent site with a warm welcome from the owner.

August 3rd 2020. So we arrived at this magnificent C.L., through the top gate and Howard had left our names on a list ready for us to pitch up. (there is another gate at the bottom of the field which most people seemed to drive out of) Just a word of warning a sat nav will probably take you to a left turn opposite Downhill Beach DO NOT go up this way to the camp site as it is extremely steep, lots of bends and not suitable certainly for caravans. Instead take a left turn just after Articlave and at the turning down to Castlerock on the right. There is a garden centre on the left, (where the lady owner is very helpful). You will see an old caravan club sign as you turn in left . The site has a wonderful view over farmland down to the coast. On a clear day you can see from Downhill to Portrush. During lock down Howard has been very busy and has now provided water not only round the edge of the site but for each pitch along with grey water waste disposal and 16 amp electric (this is either at the side of the field or at the top on the concrete road in. So all of this for a price (at time of writing) of just £15.00 - for a serviced pitch! Howard was great as we obviously didn't know about his upgraded pitches and he went out of his way to find a pipe that would connect up the grey waste. Thank you. The site is sloping but Howard has put in 3 hard standing full concrete pitches plus 2 with concrete bases for caravan wheels. If you have come without ramps or blocks then there are logs available around the site. There is a little road noise (certainly didn't disturb us) many of the cars were stopping at the viewpoint further up the road. Don't miss it as there are spectacular views across to Donegal and the Isle of Islay on the Scottish coast as well as the coast line from Milligans point right round the north coast. The site is well placed for the beaches of Downhill and Castlerock where you drive your car onto the beach (your responsibility though to be aware of the tides), national trust properties, and for touring the Causeway Costal Route and across into the Republic of Ireland.

Our Top Site To Date

The situation is magnificent and, with its elevated position on a hill sloping towards the morning sun, the panoramic view over the Mussenden Estate towards Portstewart and Portrush is a splendid way to start the day. The owner, Howard, couldn't have been more accommodating. A gentleman farmer who was always cheery and willing to lend a hand, or give advice if required but, if peace was what you wanted, then peace is what you got. The site is very well maintained, clean and tidy, as are the on-site services. There is so much to see and do in this area that it kept us busy every day of the two weeks we spent here. Two memories stand out: exploring old Derry city and a long, long walk along Downhill Beach (just below the site) paddling in the shallows as we went. Tip: follow the approach route given in the handbook as the more obvious approach from the village of Downhill involves a steep slope, hairpin bends, and narrow roads.

Wonderful site with sea views

Very well maintained, plenty of space. 3 level hardstandings and grass pitches which need some levelling blocks. Lovely owner, ( thank you for your hospitality Howard!) warm and friendly but unobtrusive. Site situated half way up a hill and sea views on 2 sides of the site as well as gorgeous sunsets. At bottom of the hill is Downhill beach where you can drive on the sand and have a picnic next to your car whilst listening to the sea. Very close to Mussenden Temple and some lovely walks in the woods and Binevenagh region. Trains to Londonderry or Belfast in Castlerock. A real gem. N.B. Follow directions in CMC book NOT sat nav.

I can only echo the other reviews. The access directions sound complicated but work in practice. A CL sign has been added by the turn off the A2 by the garden centre. The only thing I might add is that the site has quite a slope on it but Mr Andrews has left various blocks of wood about to aid levelling and the hard standing near the in-gate collected water when it rained. We used one of the three pads set in the field for our single axle 'van.
