Dsappointed.

Drumaheglis Marina and Caravan Park
Decided to go away for 3 nights. This time also thought I should use my club. So booked Drumaheglis Marina and Caravan park. booked c35 which was close to the second toilet block. as it is nearing the end of season, the site was quite, (we were the only clients, a few static seasonal caravans sitting, all hooked up). The warden peter, said there would be some arrivals for the weekend. On the second day, I left my electric cable sitting at the pitch, in its bag, in case it rained. Left the site at 10am and returned at 1550, only to discover , some 'toe rag' had seen an opportunity, AND Stole the bag & cable. The site warden, Peter was disappointed to hear this, when I saw him. HE told me, they are told by Council to report thefts to PSNI. This i did but there was no point them coming out, as there was nothing to see, no cameras in area of pitch. Thankfully I was able to purchase a new 25m cable from the local Halfords. The site is in a lovely setting, BUT, it is OPEN to the public to wander round. There is a car park beside the marina, and from here you can walk onto the site to go to the local cafe, toilets. There is a pathway through the trees surrounding the caravan site, with access points into the site. Lesson learnt. It would not stop me using the site in the future, BUT I will not be leaving anything sitting about on the pitch.

It's a council run site.

Drumaheglis Marina and Caravan Park
Sadly, this site is council owned and managed. This effectively means that it seems to be run by poorly motivated staff who become lazy. It's such a shame as this site has all the ingredients to shine. A simple example.........instead of strumming around trees, hedges etc a big band of weedkiller is used instead. The best pitches are seasonally occupied. The cafe doesn't even have opening times on the door. It's clear that the pitch we booked had an awning seasonally pitched on the grass the previous year. It was a dead muddy moss covered square, 1 week into May, after 8 months lockdown. Such a shame. It's not universally bad, just not up to Caravan Club standards.

an amazing site

Drumaheglis Marina and Caravan Park
This site is one of the best we have stayed in. The pitches are flat, wide and spacious, with large gaps between each pitch. As we were staying 2 weeks we had been allocated a seasonal pitch so we were plumbed in with water and waste which was an unexpected bonus. The trees around the site are full of birds and wildlife. All of the wardens were exceptionally helpful and friendly with lots of advice regarding visitor attractions and car parking. The dog walk is great, all around the perimeter of the site with lots of woods and interesting smell to investigate. The site is very quiet all week but at the weekend it comes to life with people on the river and around the site BBQ'ing. The slipway café serves wonderful breakfasts and lunches and homemade scones to die for. It is very near to the causeway coast which is stunning, plus all the attractions such as Giants Causeway and Carrick Rope Bridge, Ballymoney itself is well worth a visit especially the town trail. Also several supermarkets nearby. All in all we couldn't fault this site and would definitely recommend it

Beautiful riverside site

Drumaheglis Marina and Caravan Park
We arrived here on Spring bank holiday Sunday. The weather was glorious and the site full. The site was well organised, the facilities modern and clean and there was a wonderful bustling holiday atmosphere. It is a riverside site and the adjoining marina was full of people enjoying their boats. The playground was very good for the children. We enjoyed the dog walk which is in the surrounding woodland and is a good length for our little dog. When we got back from visiting the north coast and the Giant's causeway on Monday most people had left and the site had become a peaceful riverside haven. Quite a contrast! I would recommend this site.

Fabulous Drumaheglis fun

Drumaheglis Marina and Caravan Park
We stayed here in March for three nights with three small children aged 4,6 and 9. We were given a lovely welcome from the warden who was very helpful and friendly throughout the stay. Huge paved pitches with waste and water on every pitch, making it a hassle free stay. The washblock was brand new with lovely big family shower rooms which were free and did not require a key or deposit. The children's play park was spotless with lots of fun apparatus. While here we visited The Giants Causeway and Portstewart/Portrush and some fabulous north coast beaches all less than half an hour away. Our favourite campsite to date has been Chattsworth in Derbyshire but Drumaheglis is now a close rival! There is a Lidl and Tesco a short drive away in Ballymoney. Picnic benches by the river were a lovely extra and a great dog walk. We stayed on c08 which was close to the cafe and possible to view the playground from. Personally I would steer away from c01 to c04 as these look directly into the cafe. A great find although I am tempted to keep it a secret!
