Watertop Farm is a hill farm in the Glens of Antrim.  The farm is a sheep farm with 500 sheep, and 30 cows.

As we are located in the beautiful Glens of Antrim, we have several scenic walks around the farm and its surrounding area. A trip on the Paddiwagon will take you up into the hills of the farm giving you great views of the area, all the way down into Ballycastle and beyond.

Another part of the farm is the caravan and camping sites. We have a large area dedicated to people wishing to stay with us here in Watertop, and due to our location, we are an ideal place to base your holiday, allowing exploration of the north coast.
